The beauty of adding wooden surfaces to the modern kitchen goes beyond mere textural contrast. It allows you to blend two different styles and add a hint of rustic, farmhouse, traditional or even industrial panache to the stylish, contemporary kitchen. While wood does a great job of lending that natural, rustic appeal, marble acts as a balancing element by elevating the ‘sophistication‘ of the kitchen with its polished finish.
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‘!
Most often, it is white marble along with lighter tones of wood that seem to find space in the modern rustic or farmhouse kitchens. But those looking for something far more masculine and dashing can try out black marble countertops or dark grained hardwood.
Gone are the days when the kitchen was filled with just polished plastic surfaces and design that was typical of the 90‘s ‘cubicle‘ trend. Modern kitchens are once again going down the classic route and textural contrast is back in style, big time! With that mind, designers are turning towards both wood and natural stone to provide the necessary contrast even while keeping the ergonomics refined and cutting-edge. Apart from the warmth of wood, it is the exquisite elegance of marble that seems to be the preferred choice as cutting-edge kitchen compositions are being selectively draped in marble.
Looking for a kitchen that is inviting and yet carries with it a touch of modern minimalism? Marble is undoubtedly the right choice as a countertop material for such sleek kitchen spaces. Whether it is for the island countertop or just the prep and cooking zone, marble gives the modern kitchen a cultured finish even while ensuring that the neutral color scheme is left undisturbed. The natural strains of the stone still manage to create visual interest even as smart cabinet doors and kitchen islands clad in wood complete your dream kitchen.
