U-shape is often used for small spaces because it’s very functional, perhaps the most functional kitchen layout ever, and it can accommodate a lot of things and you’ll have everything at hand. But even if your kitchen is big, you can use this shape, too, and it will be handy. A u shaped kitchen is a great idea for trendy open layouts because it naturally divides the space with its parts.
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.
Who said that modern style doesn’t mean color? There are a lot of colorful designs you can rock, and tons of shades to choose from: mint, teal, red, neon shades, emerald, navy, cobalt blue and almost every color you can imagine! You can go for various two-color combos, which are extremely popular now, or try bold shades with white or cream for a contrast, or just mix some cool shade with black, which is a timeless thing.
Stone is such a wonderful decorating medium. All the colors and textures that the variations provide make it easy to choose one for your space. Cover the boring bits of your existing kitchen island in your favorite shade for a really cabin like look. You might think that your tiny farmhouse kitchen is just not big enough for an island, but you’re probably wrong. With some wood, stain and a free Saturday, you can build a custom rustic island for your kitchen that will double your work space.
