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.
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.
A monochromatic color scheme is very modern for any space, and the kitchen is no exception. If monochromatic is what you’re after, be sure to vary the tones and tints of the color itself, as well as the sheen and texture. Notice the variation between all grey aspect of this kitchen among the floor, cabinetry, countertops, and lighting fixture. When combined, the effect is interesting with great visual depth.
