The single-wall kitchen has come a long from its more simple origins and some of today’s exceptional designs seem like as much a work of art as they feel like an extension of the posh living space. Once again, do not be constrained by the classic definition of the one-wall kitchen and work with what your specific needs are. Some might not really need a giant fridge in the kitchen while others could do with a minimal and unassuming prep zone. Even a traditional single-wall kitchen frees up space for a more spacious dining room next to it by eliminating the unnecessary island and ensures your small living space feels even roomier.
While it is easy to add pops of yellow, red or green to a kitchen in white and gray, colorful accents definitely seem like a thing of the past. Instead of color, think of other ways in which you can create contrast without altering the overall appeal of the lovely kitchen draped in neutral hues. Wood is undoubtedly a fine choice as it is both hip and brings a hint of natural effervescence to a contemporary setting dominated by man-made materials. Wooden cabinets and breakfast bars seem to be the popular option here followed by bar stools and floating shelves.
A corner in the open plan living is the perfect space for a single-wall kitchen. This might not fit into the traditional definition of the one-wall kitchen, but it sure helps in maximizing space. The corner kitchen is typically L-shaped, but you can use just one wall for the kitchen sink, refrigerator and prep zone. It is the second wall in the corner that can hold storage units and additional cabinets. Strictly speaking, this is not the one-wall kitchen, but it still brings the same functionality but with even more cooking and storage space.
Embracing a dash of darkness before you take a bigger plunge is a smart choice when it comes to altering your kitchen’s color scheme. Instead of a full-fledged paint job or even a retiling of the backsplash, start off small by trying out black accents, a gray cabinet door or two or even dark pendant lights above the kitchen counter. Combine the light and dark elements to paint a picture of contrasting synergy that leaves friends and family captivated. White countertops coupled with dark island base, gray bar stools or even just a few black vases on the floating shelves – think small before you settle on the final look.
