Adequate lighting is a must for the functional aspect of a kitchen, but fortunately, this important element can also be highly decorative. With so many styles available, you can make a truly unique statement with light fixtures. In this kitchen, a large oblong lantern fixture crowns the island, while a matching, smaller fixture hangs over the sink.
Those elements, in conjunction with the cabinetrys distressed end and the darkish warm temperature of the beveled walnut wood flooring, integrate to create an antique French experience, which blends with the rest of the home. The top hutch of an old USA Store display piece fits flawlessly over the brand new sink and stainless steel cabinets.
Black repeats as leather capped stools that introduce a contrast in texture. A pair of islands antiqued with gray glaze and topped with different counter surfaces bring furnished room appeal to this gray kitchen. The islands, which mirror the colors of a sculptural zinc like range hood, steel windows, and an iron chandelier, weave warming rhythms into the mostly white mix.
The same shade of gray repeats in the cabinet finishes and quartz surfacing countertops, which present a pleasing contrast of matte and polished textures. Monochromatic is never monotonous when a single hue is showcased in varying shades and diverse textures. In this wow worthy kitchen, concrete gray walls spotlight a medley of finishes.
