Yes you heard us! The stove is a great place to display a stainless steel pot or two. If you use your cookware on a regular basis this option makes sense. And if you have limited storage it may even be a necessity. The mix of stainless steel and copper pieces in the kitchen below creates a striking contrast.
Adding bold metallic finishes to your kitchen need not always be about a striking backsplash or even an expensive copper countertop. Take the less expensive but equally impressive option by simply changing the pulls on your kitchen cabinets from wood to brass or bringing in new pendant lights that usher in a cool copper glint. As we alluded to earlier nickel and chrome are perfect for those who want a cooler metallic shine with a silvery glint and these two finishes are ideal for the smart contemporary kitchen where copper might seem out of place. And if all else fails just a series of open shelves with copper pots and pans on display can make a big impact as well!
Even though it might come as a surprise to some the most popular kitchens in recent times among homeowners are those with gray walls and cabinets in a light hue ranging from shades of gray to pristine white. Instead of using gray sporadically in the white kitchen designers have flipped the template and have opted to go with gray as the dominant hue in most of the kitchens. The latest kitchen compositions showcased by the likes of Scavolini Leicht and Snaidero reflect this switch even as the kitchens themselves still remain cutting-edge both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
Mixing different metals is a relatively new phenomenon both in the world of interior design and fashion. Once dubbed ungainly and unnecessary it has been revitalized by smart kitchen designers bringing together gorgeous brass and copper finishes along with brighter and cooler metals like stainless steel and nickel to offer the very best of both worlds. This infusion of more than one metal in the kitchen can be done in a subtle yet striking fashion by using antiqued bronze pulls bold copper pendants and even a stainless steel backsplash all in one elegant unique space.
