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.
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.
L-shaped kitchens are very common. They are practical because they offer an internal structure that offers a décor that’s perfect for cooking but also for everything else. Whether they are a separate room or they are part of an open floor plan, L-shaped kitchens feature plenty of counter space which can be a crucial detail and that can make the difference between a practical kitchen and one that lacks something important. They also have the shape necessary for also including a kitchen island.
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.
