In Scandinavian-style homes, all rooms seem to share the same design. However, they are all unique and they each have distinctive characteristics. The kitchen, for example, is a very interesting space to analyze from the perspective of this style. The kitchen in Scandinavian homes has an airy and simple décor but it’s also functional and practical. Given the fact that the kitchen is primarily a functional space although in a lot of modern homes it doubles as a social area, a Scandinavian design suits it well.
Mid-century modern is an architectural, interior, product and graphic design that generally describes mid-20th century developments in modern design and architecture. It’s gaining more and more popularity because everything retro is so trendy today, and because of its coziness. Today I’ve prepared several mid-century modern eye-candies for you – these are cool kitchens. Speaking about mid-century modern kitchens, you’ll see an extensive use of warm-colored wood and maybe some bold colors.
Monochromatic modern kitchens is another super popular idea for modern spaces because it’s also timeless and looks more interesting than neutrals due to bold contrasts. You can go for black and white cabinets, or choose only some touches in black, for example, a kitchen island, a backsplash and chairs or stools. To add interest to the space, you may go for stone or marble surfaces, wooden touches and metallic lamps, handles and even a hood.
The deep wood grain against your lighter cabinets will make a bigger impact than you think. Countertops can be the most expensive purchase for a kitchen, excepting the appliances. So what do you do when you only have enough in the budget for the expensive counter choice on the cabinets? You resort to butcher block on the island.
