While countertops, flooring and cabinets are generally places to keep it simple, the backsplash is a good place to inject some personal style, whether that’s with a mosaic feature or a bold color. And since that wall literally connects the countertops with the cabinets it’s also a place to tie everything together.
Wood will always be a highly sought after kitchen cabinet material. For a fresh update to wood cabinets, consider exotic woods that have striped grain to them. The stripes will add texture and visual interest to your cabinetry.
A good general rule for enclosed kitchens is to place it in the center of the room. That way it’s equally accessible from all sides and won’t be an obstacle for people walking through. That placement might not work best for all kitchens, however. A perimeter island, for example, might work better with open floor plans. Size and shape are also determined by room’s layout; Allow for at least 36-48 inches between the perimeter of the island and the surrounding cabinets so there’s enough room for people to move around.
The contemporary effect of floating cabinets makes a kitchen space memorable. Floating lower cabinets showcases your flooring while opening the space up. The look is surprisingly functional and ergonomic, since a cabinet’s storage area near the floor is often hard to access or difficult to use for those with back problems. To showcase floating cabinets, add lighting beneath them to cast a contemporary vibe and glow.
