The three compositions below epitomize the classic appeal of the single-wall kitchen and yet each one has a style of its own. The first tends to combine farmhouse aesthetics and warmth of wood with appliances and counters in white. The second presents a completely contrasting picture with its dark modern appeal and the last kitchen leans heavily towards an industrial look enhanced by brick and metal. Yet all the three kitchens blend ergonomics of the one-wall kitchen with their respective styles in a fluid and fascinating manner.
Stainless steel is amazingly sleek when displayed in smooth sheets. Yet adding a bit of texture can certainly make things interesting (and distract from dreaded fingerprints). A tiled surface catches the light creating an added shine that’s more organic than glitzy. Perfect for modern kitchens!
Do not be too caught up on using all that space under the island countertop to tuck in a plethora of cabinets. There are times when a couple of open shelves can make a big difference to the kitchen island. These sleek shelves not only alter the aesthetics of the island itself and offer a break from the visual monotony but also allow you to craft a stunning display that adds to the ambiance of your open plan living. Couple these open shelves with beautiful LED lighting and you have a kitchen island that is both functional and stunning.
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.
