Polished-nickel faucets have always been popular in the kitchen as they proudly sit next to the sink and stainless steel is definitely no stranger to the kitchen thanks to its sturdy and easy-to-clean reputation. But the last few seasons have seen the warm glow of copper finding its way back into the modern kitchen that seems to draw inspiration from an era gone by. A revival of styles such as vintage rustic farmhouse and industrial have seen homeowners opt for copper cooking ranges and finishes that play into the overall ‘modern-meets-classic’ theme.
We are always looking for ways in which we can that ‘something special’ to the kitchen without having to later too much. A quick kitchen revamp freshens up much more than the cooking and prep zone and adds to the appeal of the entire living space. While most modern kitchens seem to embrace a muted or neutral color scheme with smartly placed accent hues sometimes going in the opposite direction works just as well. Giving the contemporary kitchen a makeover using black and shades of gray makes it even more sophisticated and striking without forcing you to spend a fortune!
Copper worktops and islands are also starting to make a bigger impact in the modern kitchen and a smart epoxy resin finish ensures that they are both beautifully preserved and easier to maintain. Copper naturally ages with time and unsealed copper would gradually oxidize and give your kitchen a more timeless look. Surprisingly easy to clean versatile and much more eco-friendly than modern synthetic alternatives copper kitchen countertops offer much more than you would expect.
Corner kitchen cabinets are big hit for the obvious reason and you can extend the same logic to your kitchen island as well. For long the corners of the island were left forgotten wasting precious storage and display space. If open shelving is not your thing (not everyone has time to keep their kitchen flawless and organized) then opt for addition shelving that simply slides in when not needed. This also frees up valuable space at the heart of the island for your kitchen appliances. In a small kitchen with a tiny island this minor adjustment can make a huge difference.
