Most of us tend to stay away from black because we feel it takes away from the visual spaciousness and lightness of the kitchen. Since the kitchen is already an area of the home filled with shelves cabinets appliances and a whole lot more a white backdrop is generally preferred in favor of something deeper and darker. But careful use of black in the kitchen along with right lighting can turn a seemingly ordinary space into a refined setting that is both posh and practical. A dark tiled backsplash cabinets clad in black or even a central island in polished black marble can usher in elegance without feeling overwhelming.
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!
When your backsplash spans the entire length of the countertops you have the ability to make a strong statement in silver. Let’s take a look at some modern spaces that successfully incorporate stainless steel backsplashes. Stainless steel is the perfect counterpart to white. Note the clean feel of the kitchen below which is amplified by open shelving with neatly stacked white dishes!
Think of Scandinavian style and the first thing that comes to mind is the color white. As we alluded to earlier the harsh winters that shaped the style dictated this color choice as homeowners wanted an interior that was airy cheerful and moved away from the chill and gloom outside. White is the obvious choice as it maximizes the available natural light while keeping the visual fragmentation to a minimum. Since white is already a popular hue when it comes to kitchen design most of us will have little hassle in switching styles.
