The gray tiles pick up on the marble countertops and gray shadings of surrounding cabinetry. Traditional cabinetry painted gray partners nicely with industrial elements rendered in shimmering and weathered metals. This kitchen handily illustrates how age old elements, such as Shaker style cabinets, weighty woodwork, and marble surfaces, benefit from pairing with unconventional accessories, like steel factory stools, a zinc topped island, and a whimsical chandelier crafted from silver flatware.
A black matte finish on the beneficiant island compliments the scene with hanging evaluation. To prevent present day conventional style from feeling stodgy and unlivable, add a thoughtful dose of informal embellishments, inclusive of the beaded board panels and wire mesh door fronts that hint toward English US Environment on this kitchen.
In kitchens, function often reigns supreme, which leaves little room for decorative flair. Consider the space above your cabinets as prime display space. You will add a fun touch to your kitchen, without taking up precious counter or storage space. Pay attention to scale when choosing items to display. Too small, and the item will virtually disappear, too tall, and it will look awkward as it skims the ceiling.
The ensemble becomes a focal point in the middle of this white kitchen. Paint the insides of your cabinets for an update that will give your kitchen decorating mileage without much cost. Choose your color from an existing element in your kitchen, such as a fleck that appears in your countertops or backsplash, or a color that is featured on window treatments.
