When you’re leaning towards industrial styling in your home, you definitely need to think more rustic in yout kitchen. A thick chunky wood kitchen island will fulfill all your storage needs without diverting from the industrial feel. Are you trying to bring color and life into your already rustic kitchen? Paint it. Choose the brightest color that makes you happy and paint your kitchen island. Just that one pop will change the feel of the entire room, no cabinet painting required.
If you want to save some space, you can just go for a longer or wider kitchen island and use the additional length or width or eating. It’s very smart and you won’t need to buy additional furniture – just a couple of stools. The eating zone may be the continuation of the kitchen island or may be made of some different material to highlight and separate it. The eating space can be raised to a different height for comfort.
A contemporary kitchen is not the same as a modern kitchen, even though some people use these terms interchangeably. A contemporary kitchen can be modern but it can also adopt other styles as well. For example, it can have vintage details and accents without being a vintage kitchen. There are a few elements that are specific to this style and that can help us distinguish a contemporary kitchen from other types and that need to be taken in consideration when adopting this style.
The kitchen is an odd room. It’s a space originally designed for cooking but, with time, it has also become a social space where friends and families spend time together, where they chat while someone is making dinner or where they simply gather to socialize. But a kitchen needs to be, first of all, functional. It’s a space where style comes second but, nevertheless, doesn’t have to be ignored. It’s a space where everything has to be perfectly balanced.
