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.
Time to swap out your boring kitchen island with one that is far more efficient and undoubtedly eye-catching! Marble island countertops coupled with a block of wood that can either serve as prep area or even the breakfast bar is a trendy choice indeed. Another nifty way to blend wood and marble is with an island that has a complete marble countertop but a wooden base and storage units with wooden doors. Matching bar stools and pendant lighting can complete a delightful kitchen that turns heads instantly.
Adding wood and marble to the kitchen is easier than it sounds. While many of these kitchens do require a touch more care and maintenance, their aesthetic charm and uniqueness is well worth the additional time and effort. Smart, functional and at times simply sensational, it is time to bring home both marble and wood!
The most noticeable and iconic feature of this new kitchen series is the ‘frame door‘ that combines a dash of Shaker furniture style and traditional kitchen door design with contemporary refinement and minimal modernity. The fusion is simply spectacular as these understated additions give the kitchen an entirely new look and set it apart from other contemporary compositions. Even in a crowd, Carattere is instantly recognizable thanks to this signature feature that is available with two different variants. Whether it is with fixed handles or with grip integrated into the cabinet door, these frame doors definitely make an immediate impact.
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.
