The way we use our kitchens is evolving, with a desire to create open-plan spaces designed for entertaining taking precedent. Maximizing natural light is (arguably) the key to designing a contemporary kitchen that fits this new-found requirement. After all, light has the capacity to make a space feel brighter and more spacious – particularly when paired with an all-white scheme – which will make it a more pleasant place to spend time.
For your kitchen, evaluate the work areas and focus on providing each spot with the light it needs. Consider adding lighting directly above all the main work areas.
If (like us) you can’t get enough of the moody interiors trend, you’ll love our dark and dramatic kitchen design ideas.
If your kitchen is small, consider installing extra-long upper cabinets with molding for extra storage space. Place lighting or greenery along the molding to draw the eyes up. Always install cabinets over the refrigerator.
Cabinetry with a matt-effect finish is making waves in the world of contemporary kitchen interiors (and we can see why). Effortlessly sleek and sophisticated – particularly in this grey tone – it makes the perfect addition to a state-of-the-art space. Pair with a statement mirrored backsplash, which makes a stylish alternative to more traditional tiles.
If you’re concerned about the space feeling a little too clinical, try working different textures into your space to break up the use of one color. In this instance, fine grey veining throughout the white marble kitchen island is just what’s required to add interest to the space.
