It’s not a proper rustic post until shiplap has been mentioned. But in all seriousness, shiplap is the perfect way to add some interest and farmhouse flair to your dull kitchen island. Plus, it’s a cheap weekend project which means five stars. Most people fall into one of two concrete counter categories: they like it or they don’t. If you’re a lover, don’t hesitate to add a concrete countertop to your kitchen island.
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.
It’s common for the kitchen in such cases to have either a wooden floor with a light color or a black and white checkerboard floor. The monochrome combination is also commonly used for the rest of the décor as well. The main characteristics of this style allows it to be best applied in modern and contemporary kitchens where minimalism is a must. The décor stays interesting and eye-catching through unexpected combinations of colors, textures and shapes or through modern twists added to classical elements.
