Once dubbed ungainly and unnecessary, it has been revitalized by smart kitchen designers bringing together gorgeous brass and copper finishes along with brighter and cooler metals like stainless steel and nickel to offer the very best of both worlds. This infusion of more than one metal in the kitchen can be done in a subtle yet striking fashion by using antiqued bronze pulls, bold copper pendants and even a stainless steel backsplash all in one elegant, unique space.
Pick and choose the exact features you wish to incorporate into the single-wall kitchen.

These shelves can be arranged around the kitchen countertop, refrigerator and other appliances to make the most of vertical space on offer without making it seem far too cluttered. 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.

We are always looking for ways in which we can that ‘something special’ to the kitchen without having to later too much. A quick kitchen revamp freshens up much more than the cooking and prep zone and adds to the appeal of the entire living space.

Giving the contemporary kitchen a makeover using black and shades of gray makes it even more sophisticated and striking without forcing you to spend a fortune!
When your backsplash spans the entire length of the countertops, you have the ability to make a strong statement in silver. Let’s take a look at some modern spaces that successfully incorporate stainless steel backsplashes. Stainless steel is the perfect counterpart to white.

Instead of glossy white backsplash and cream cabinets, consider glossy white cabinets and cream backsplash. Your kitchen will feel unique and modern which will flow with the rest of your home.
While it is easy to add pops of yellow, red or green to a kitchen in white and gray, colorful accents definitely seem like a thing of the past. Instead of color, think of other ways in which you can create contrast without altering the overall appeal of the lovely kitchen draped in neutral hues. Wood is undoubtedly a fine choice as it is both hip and brings a hint of natural effervescence to a contemporary setting dominated by man-made materials. Wooden cabinets and breakfast bars seem to be the popular option here followed by bar stools and floating shelves.
Stainless steel adds a cool-toned breath of fresh air to kitchens featuring wooden cabinetry. The warm glow of the wood is beautifully complemented by the sleek touch of stainless, especially with backsplashes that add metallic style to the walls! Time for a switcheroo. Instead of glossy white backsplash and cream cabinets, consider glossy white cabinets and cream backsplash. Your kitchen will feel unique and modern which will flow with the rest of your home.
Even though it might come as a surprise to some, the most popular kitchens in recent times among homeowners are those with gray walls and cabinets in a light hue ranging from shades of gray to pristine white. Instead of using gray sporadically in the white kitchen, designers have flipped the template and have opted to go with gray as the dominant hue in most of the kitchens. The latest kitchen compositions showcased by the likes of Scavolini, Leicht and Snaidero reflect this switch, even as the kitchens themselves still remain cutting-edge both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
