The upside to these steely cabinets is vast. Some of the main perks being: environmental (use of steel over wood), easy to clean, extremely sanitary (which is why they began in commercial grade kitchens), and durable (aside from potential scratches). If solid stainless steel cabinets are out of your price range, then there are options of MDF cabinets that are layered with steel over top. Either way, stainless steel can be an amazing addition to your modern kitchen.
If a bold paint color isn’t quite your thing, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways to apply this look. One of them is to use two separate materials in your cabinet design. A wood finish is typically selected for part of the look, but you could, for example, mix it with laminate for a sleek, modern look or glass and aluminum to give the room an industrial feel.
You can go about tying your cabinets together in a few ways. In the picture above, for example, both the upper and lower cabinets fit within the same color palette. Consider using two different shades of the same color as your equalizer. However, if you’d rather include two distinct hues, you should think seriously about using the same hardware throughout the space to bring the look together.
You can use the space over your custom kitchen—cabinets as a built-in display for various items that you collect, including antique milk bottles as-well as vintage lunch boxes. If you intend to display clear, screen-printed glassware such as milk bottles on top of your cabinets. Consider putting sheets regarding white paper inside the bottles to make the graphics more visible. In addition, display your lunch boxes to match your color scheme for the room.
