In the photo above, we see another example of how to use wood to create an appealing contrast against cabinets. The sleek, gray cabinets look almost futuristic and the range hood style adds to the modern look, but the warm wood creates a sort of natural feel. What results is some subtle contrast using wood textures in the kitchen, helping the kitchen feel modern but not stark.
Outdated kitchens were made with materials that were popular decades ago, including metals used for kitchen hardware. With manufacturer’s releasing innovative materials and design trends following suit, it may be time to rethink your drawer pulls and lighting fixtures. Metals going modern in kitchen design include matte aluminum, stainless steel, brushed gold, and copper – try these materials out in your cabinetry hardware, pendant lighting, and range hood options.
This particular style all means being reflected in kitchen shelving; even though integrated appliances remains popular they're being blended with open-shelving units so homeowners can display precious or interesting knick-knacks to reflect themselves. Open shelving could be personalized to make the kitchen really feel alive as-well as welcoming while without affecting functionality. Open shelving has the added benefit of being lighter on the budget and, if you have the right skills, installed by you.
