It’s not a proper rustic post until shiplap has been mentioned. But in all seriousness, shiplap is the perfect way to add some interest and farmhouse flair to your dull kitchen island. Plus, it’s a cheap weekend project which means five stars. Most people fall into one of two concrete counter categories: they like it or they don’t. If you’re a lover, don’t hesitate to add a concrete countertop to your kitchen island.
Who said that modern style doesn’t mean color? There are a lot of colorful designs you can rock, and tons of shades to choose from: mint, teal, red, neon shades, emerald, navy, cobalt blue and almost every color you can imagine! You can go for various two-color combos, which are extremely popular now, or try bold shades with white or cream for a contrast, or just mix some cool shade with black, which is a timeless thing.
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 also common for the kitchen to feature small bursts of color. These are focal points that are strategically placed and that can also be seen in the rest of the house as well. So whether it’s a bright-colored appliance, a set of colorful plates, a piece of furniture or a floral arrangement, the goal is always the same: to break the monotony and to create a fresh décor.
