I have always loved the look of a black kitchen island especially paired against much lighter cabinetry, but have been concerned that it would be too bold of a decor statement in our small home. Black granite countertops have an extremely modern and chic look. Even better, they hide dirt and damage extremely well, making your kitchen always look sparkling clean. When paired alongside shaker kitchen cabinet doors like we have, the result is an awesome contemporary style illustrated by this stunning home. The question is, will a large expanse of such a dark color on the island surface or all countertops overwhelm the kitchen in our small condo. My thoughts are that if I can keep everything else bright white, with simple lines and uncluttered decor, the shiny black surface will actually make the entire space look more streamlined.
The hallmark to contemporary kitchen design is chic clean lines and a simple color palette accented by unique artistic finishing pieces like light fixtures, knobs and decorative detailing. This beautiful all white and marble space is a fantastic example of the best in modern kitchen decor for 2019. The designer managed to perfectly blend traditional elements like a gorgeous paneled kitchen cabinet design alongside edgier touches such as mismatched mosaic backsplashes, white-washed flooring and a large eye catching hood. These stunning features are perfectly accented by classic shaded pendent lighting fixtures hung over the large marble island top and neighboring peninsula.
I am continually inspired by effortlessly chic Italian kitchen designs that I was exposed to studying abroad during art school. Europeans long ago mastered the art of contemporary home design, while we in America are still working to find the right balance between traditional styling and more modern touches. This lovely home used an elegant neutral color palette so popular today, but the subtle variances in tones and saturation give the design depth and interest. I love the softness and welcoming effect that the warm undertone of the contemporary kitchen cabinets and paint palette adds to the space, a tone that is perfectly mimicked by the rich stained wood of the large center island.
Combining practicality with style, this space also features cheap kitchen cabinets, proving that great value should not compromise on design. After all, why should a limited budget restrict you from creating an inviting room? White kitchen designs can never go out of style and despite their tendency to attract dirt, there is no denying that they add a modern appeal to spaces. So, make this space your own and create culinary masterpieces with ease in this contemporary kitchen that exudes flawless elegance while offering great value.There is something about white décor that leaves you with a sense of calmness and serenity. One such example is this white kitchen design we recently put together for a client.
Regardless of whether you have a modern or contemporary kitchen, don’t think twice about adding a kitchen island to it. You could add any of these to your kitchen – regardless of its size. The kitchen island depicted in the picture above does not only provide ample seating space. It also provides additional storage space. It contrasts favorably with the wooden kitchen flooring as well. Kitchen islands can double up as specialty workstations too. If required, you could even connect a second heating range to it. They come into vogue because they can become the focal point of your kitchen. When it comes to remodeling projects, islands can be hard to do without.
While searching for kitchen decor, I came across this beautiful 21st century styled design. I am absolutely astonished by the combination of lighting, colors, and decor that really allow this kitchen to give off a classic, modern look. The standard, ceramic tile kitchen backsplash is a common theme among most present-day homes and is also among the most reliable in functionality. The backsplash is also key in adding a clean, sleek look into this kitchens overall appeal. This kitchen design features tone-on-tone colors, which, in most homes, almost become too bland and lackluster. However, in this specific contemporary kitchen, the cream and white palettes allow for the simplistic shots of brown from the stools and liveliness of the countertop decor to give a bold, neutral element that makes the style really come to life.
