It’s such a wonderful thing to find hand-me-down treasures in your parents’ or grandparents’ attic. Remember that big old dining room table? Snap it up to use as a kitchen island. Being already lovingly worn down means you won’t be worried about using it to it’s full potential. How do you bring rustic to a rather modern kitchen? It’s all in the wood. Give your island a makeover by lining the corners in some beautiful rustic beams.
Tile backsplashes, geometric patterns and textiles – these things will help you to create such a kitchen. And, of course, mid-century modern furniture and lamps will be the base of your space. Get inspired! If we take a look around in the houses we visit, we can see different kinds of homes and kitchens, each with their own style and design, bigger or smaller, prettier or arranged by a designer or by the owner.
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.
The first thing anyone thinks about when taking about contemporary kitchens is the cutting-edge technology. Appliances are very important in this case. They need to be sleek, durable, to ensure great performance and to have advanced features. Functionality is an important aspect to take into consideration, as well as style. The light fixtures are a very important detail for contemporary interiors. Even if they are usually characterized by minimalism and lack of details, they still stand out in other ways.
