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.
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.
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.
