Planning for the perfect kitchen island is as much about getting the dimensions right as it is about the extra cabinet space and additional perks it brings. The large U-shaped kitchen island looks like a tantalizing prospect but it is a design that only works well in the really spacious kitchens. On the upside this island allows you to expand on your storage add more cabinets than usual and lets you combine prep cooking and serving stations with ease.
It is generally the ‘summer colors’ that agree with this style but stronger hues also seem at home when used with restraint. Remember that whether it is pattern or color moderation is a mantra that you need to stick to when it comes to the classic Scandinavian look. Cabinets in gentle green or light aqua along with matching chairs in the adjacent dining space take the appeal to a whole new level!
Adding color to your Scandinavian kitchen is a lot simpler than in the case of living rooms or bedrooms that adopt the same style. Chic kitchenware with flower patterns pastel hues that also usher in a breezy summer charm and pops of bright yellow or green that stand out thanks to the neutral backdrop are the most preferred options. If you have an all-white subway tiled backsplash then think of another section in the kitchen where you can add colorful geometric tiles or even some wallpaper to break the monotony.
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!
