Red as a color gets plenty of bad rap when it comes to home decorating because it can seem far too overpowering when used excessively. But a red island coupled with a neutral backdrop can make a big visual impact in both contemporary and traditional kitchens alike. Red combines well with black in modern kitchens while a red island at the heart of a Mediterranean kitchen can instantly bring brightness to an otherwise mellow and inviting space. Make sure though that you pick a matte shade of red to ensure your red island is not ungainly and out of place.
2017 is undoubtedly a year when design and decorating world has taken turn towards natural materials and interiors that are more nature-centric. With that in mind, it makes plenty of sense to add a dash of wooden warmth to your contemporary kitchen. Breaking the monotony of polished and pristine finishes in the kitchen, a pantry with wooden shelves or even a sliding barn door offers welcome change. The sliding barn door also saves precious space when compared to traditional doors that swing open. And if you are just looking for ways to give your old pantry a woodsy upgrade then custom wooden boxes and shelves are a smart alternative to consider.
In some cases, a window backsplash is preferred because of a lack of natural light. An interesting example is the summer house designed by BAK Arquitectos, where concrete was used for countertop. Even though it has a very open layout, there’s not really an abundance of natural light inside the house. In order to have a kitchen that’s both bright and functional in terms of storage space, they chose the window backsplash strategy.
