While it is easy to add pops of yellow, red or green to a kitchen in white and gray, colorful accents definitely seem like a thing of the past. Instead of color, think of other ways in which you can create contrast without altering the overall appeal of the lovely kitchen draped in neutral hues. Wood is undoubtedly a fine choice as it is both hip and brings a hint of natural effervescence to a contemporary setting dominated by man-made materials. Wooden cabinets and breakfast bars seem to be the popular option here followed by bar stools and floating shelves.
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.

There is nothing quite like enjoying a lovely view outside the window as you relax indoors and catch up on your favorite reading material while sipping on a beverage of your choice.
