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.
From antique we move on to the colorful and playful world or retro.

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‘!
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.
Despite its reputation as a color that lends itself favorably to polished, contemporary interiors, gray works equally well with a variety of other styles. All you need to do is choose the right shade and combine it with different materials and textures to get the desired look. Darker tones of charcoal gray along with white fit into industrial kitchens when combined with exposed brick walls and metallic finishes. Wood takes over as the third element in rustic and farmhouse kitchens while stone and Corian complete modern kitchens.
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!
