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.
This midcentury modern kitchen is also open onto the living room. It has a simple and very cohesive décor with furniture made of wood and featuring similar characteristics throughout. The fact that it’s part of a set makes the kitchen seem uniform and simple. The wood adds elegant and warmth to the décor and the color matches the design of the living room.
Since most contemporary kitchens usually feature crisp white walls, the backsplash becomes a common way of introducing pattern and color into the décor. You will often see versions that feature glass tiles, mosaics, stone or ceramic. It’s an element that represents a way of expressing the personal preferences and personality of the homeowner.
Large families definitely need versatility when it comes to square footage. Rustic kitchen islands often have wheels which allow them to be rolled away when you have one too many cooks in the kitchen. Perfect for families that cook together. Of course you don’t have to have rustic wood for your kitchen island to fit into your rustic kitchen. A sleek dark stained wood will be a lovely modern touch to an otherwise textured rustic space.
