Think of Scandinavian style and the first thing that comes to mind is the color white. As we alluded to earlier the harsh winters that shaped the style dictated this color choice as homeowners wanted an interior that was airy cheerful and moved away from the chill and gloom outside. White is the obvious choice as it maximizes the available natural light while keeping the visual fragmentation to a minimum. Since white is already a popular hue when it comes to kitchen design most of us will have little hassle in switching styles.
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.
Polished-nickel faucets have always been popular in the kitchen as they proudly sit next to the sink and stainless steel is definitely no stranger to the kitchen thanks to its sturdy and easy-to-clean reputation. But the last few seasons have seen the warm glow of copper finding its way back into the modern kitchen that seems to draw inspiration from an era gone by. A revival of styles such as vintage rustic farmhouse and industrial have seen homeowners opt for copper cooking ranges and finishes that play into the overall ‘modern-meets-classic’ theme.
Copper worktops and islands are also starting to make a bigger impact in the modern kitchen and a smart epoxy resin finish ensures that they are both beautifully preserved and easier to maintain. Copper naturally ages with time and unsealed copper would gradually oxidize and give your kitchen a more timeless look. Surprisingly easy to clean versatile and much more eco-friendly than modern synthetic alternatives copper kitchen countertops offer much more than you would expect.
