Not every kitchen can handle a splash of gray and there are times when both local weather and natural lighting of the room demand a lighters and more cheerful backdrop. This is precisely where white can play the protagonist and gray can be used to delineate space, add depth to various features of the kitchen and to give the shelves and cabinets a modern makeover. White and gray kitchens seem visually larger than they really are and in small urban homes, this becomes an invaluable asset.
A kitchen in bluish-gray leads the pack here with other lighter hues of gray following closely behind. When choosing gray as the principle color in the contemporary kitchen, it is best to pick a cooler and lighter shade as it give the space an inviting, light-filled and upbeat vibe. Add in white countertops, bar stools, backsplash or other accent features to create visual interest and contrast.
The past few years have seen a bold revival of vintage and retro themes, with the kitchen becoming the preferred space to try out these resurgent styles. There is something undeniably captivating about a charming vintage kitchen that takes you back in time with its warmth and elegance. These inviting antique touches become even more apparent as the rest of the world remains distinctly modern; sometimes borders on the edge of sterile. In an age where design seems largely impersonal, antique and retro kitchens usher in individuality filled with nostalgic allure!
Even though it might come as a surprise to some, the most popular kitchens in recent times among homeowners are those with gray walls and cabinets in a light hue ranging from shades of gray to pristine white. Instead of using gray sporadically in the white kitchen, designers have flipped the template and have opted to go with gray as the dominant hue in most of the kitchens. The latest kitchen compositions showcased by the likes of Scavolini, Leicht and Snaidero reflect this switch, even as the kitchens themselves still remain cutting-edge both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
From antique we move on to the colorful and playful world or retro. The magnetism of the 60‘s and 70‘s – decades the changed the course of the world, is perfectly reflected in the Northstar lineup from Elmira. And the undisputed star of this delightful kitchen extravaganza is the series of Northstar fridges that come in eight different colors. They are bound to be the talking point of any space they adorn and seem completely at home even in a polished modern kitchen. Searching for something even more exhilarating? Then the Model 1952 fridge with skulls, flames and a fiery hot presence should satisfy – maybe exceed – your quest for ‘something bold‘!
