Planning for the perfect kitchen is an exercise that often involves maximizing space without compromising on form. It is a delicate balance between the two that really brings to life your dream kitchen. A pantry plays a huge role in it all. Whether you cook ever so rarely or love to regularly serve up sumptuous meals for your family and friends there is always a pantry out there that perfectly serves your needs. And unsurprisingly it is often shelf space lighting storage room and placement of the pantry that we tend to focus on. But even the most space-savvy pantries need to be aesthetic as well!
The mix of stainless steel and natural stone is really effortless here since the marble’s grey tones match the cabinets so perfectly. The touch of fun brought into this otherwise serious space via the chandelier above the table is so refreshing!
The brushed steel is a refreshing look for the stainless steel kitchen which almost looks white with the light shining on it. The beauty of this design is in the subtlety of the mixture of materials. The wood cabinetry almost seems out of place until you notice the huge pantry to the left and it all comes together.
Warm inviting and calming the sporadic splattering of yellow in the form of interesting kitchen seating options and the fresh flowers gives this kitchen a unique and effervescent look. Despite using largely subdued shades the kitchen stands out thanks to these daft little touches and with ample natural ventilation thanks to extensive use of glass ‘fresh mornings’ is what this kitchen advertises with glee!
Finding the right color for your kitchen island is far simpler than you think. This first step is to settle on both the style and the color scheme of the kitchen itself. Once you have this sorted most of the work is done and your choices are instantly narrowed down. A kitchen with too many colors looks cluttered and hence it is best to pick a color for the island that is repeated elsewhere. Of course a left-field choice is always welcome in an eclectic kitchen but it does not work in most other kitchens. Whether it is stunning teal island in a polished contemporary kitchen or one in sunny yellow at the heart of a traditional kitchen keeping the cabinets and the backdrop as neutral as possible helps immensely as well.
There is no doubt that this kitchen is stunning and the mix of modern and traditional is so seamless! The center cooking area looks like it belongs in a professional chef’s kitchen and the stove blends right in with the cabinets. The result: the island stands as a whole like a kitchen within a kitchen. Even the cabinet pulls match the handles on the oven – it’s brilliant.
