From wood we move on to the more brilliant world of glass. Glass shelves in the pantry are a rarity since most of us tend to use this storage space in a ‘not so delicate’ fashion. But sliding glass doors for the pantry are far more common. You can use various styles of glass doors to alter the style of the pantry from industrial to modern and Asian to Mediterranean! For most homeowners it is the frosted glass doors that offer the best solution as they bring natural light into the pantry even while hiding the mess inside… A nifty choice that offers best of both worlds!
It’s almost easy to overlook the fact that this kitchen is full of stainless steel. The details in the ceiling and upper cabinets are very much traditional but this kitchen comes into the 21st century when we look at the countertops and lower cabinetry which are all stainless steel and yet fit in perfectly with the more traditional pieces.
This is a kitchen designed by Crescent Builds. It has a strong traditional almost rustic design but with a modern edge. The window backsplash is definitely an interesting feature. It doesn‘t covers the entire space between the counter and the cabinets leaving a tiled section that incorporates the electric outlets.
Red as a color gets plenty of bad rap when it comes to home decorating because it can seem far too overpowering when used excessively. But a red island coupled with a neutral backdrop can make a big visual impact in both contemporary and traditional kitchens alike. Red combines well with black in modern kitchens while a red island at the heart of a Mediterranean kitchen can instantly bring brightness to an otherwise mellow and inviting space. Make sure though that you pick a matte shade of red to ensure your red island is not ungainly and out of place.
There are so many colors that go amazingly well with white. The wall floor cabinets backsplash countertop and appliances can carry the color that works magic with your white base. Let’s have a look at some of the attractive colors in a kitchen shall we?
Another example of great use of lower cabinets in a traditional kitchen. Here there is much less stainless steel but it works so well with the cool colors throughout the kitchen like the backsplash and the glass on the doors. The grey on the island also pulls the silvery hues together very nicely!
