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.
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.
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.
Large families definitely need versatility when it comes to square footage. Rustic kitchen islands often have wheels which allow them to be rolled away when you have one too many cooks in the kitchen. Perfect for families that cook together. Of course you don’t have to have rustic wood for your kitchen island to fit into your rustic kitchen. A sleek dark stained wood will be a lovely modern touch to an otherwise textured rustic space.
