Stainless steel is amazingly sleek when displayed in smooth sheets. Yet adding a bit of texture can certainly make things interesting (and distract from dreaded fingerprints). A tiled surface catches the light, creating an added shine that’s more organic than glitzy. Perfect for modern kitchens! Let’s not forget about pattern play.

Under-cabinet lighting and sconce lights add another layer of functionality to this single-wall kitchen where one even finds a hint of room for an ultra-small breakfast nook.

There are some color combinations that never go out of style and look as relevant today as they did several decades ago. The classic duo of yellow and blue fits this billing perfectly, as this is a color scheme that seems to blend in with a wide variety of styles and works equally well in both large and small spaces.

We did already allude to the big reason why live-edge furniture and features like the reclaimed barn door are so very popular again. Many of us want to discover and re-discover our roots and once again find that connection with all things nature-centric.

Instead of trying to mimic the ‘catalog version’, homeowners now want bedrooms to reflect their personality and to act as relaxing getaways that transport them into a different dimension.

So it’s important that our kitchens are not only efficient but beautiful as well. Nobody wants to wash dishes in a dingy space.
Gray is arguably the most versatile of all neutrals and it can also be used as the primary color in your kitchen while balancing it elegantly with other hues. Darker shades of gray like charcoal bring the magic of black into the kitchen even while providing you with a more neutral option. Bluish-gray is another popular choice in modern kitchens and combining it with warm wooden surfaces or even black metallic accents makes for a stunning backdrop.
