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.
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.
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.
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.
