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.
This concept can become a good choice as the island gives you a multifunctional purpose of a dining, preparation and sitting area without having to invest or waste any more space. There’s no kitchen without a kitchen island, even if you think that such a piece isn’t for a small kitchen, you are wrong. Kitchen islands are super functional: these are cooking, washing, peeling and storage pieces; they can accommodate lots of appliances, tableware, dishes, pet food and bowls, books and magazines.
A contemporary kitchen is not the same as a modern kitchen, even though some people use these terms interchangeably. A contemporary kitchen can be modern but it can also adopt other styles as well. For example, it can have vintage details and accents without being a vintage kitchen. There are a few elements that are specific to this style and that can help us distinguish a contemporary kitchen from other types and that need to be taken in consideration when adopting this style.
Of course, if you love the look of a white kitchen but wanted to stray just a little from the trending all-white kitchen, there are ways to do that with subtle color. Maintain the white feel with unadorned windows, marble countertop and backsplash, and a white farmhouse sink. Throw a pale grey-green color onto the cabinets, then accent with metallic hardware, fixtures, and accessories. The result is a kitchen that feels almost ethereal without being completely white.
