A corner in the open plan living is the perfect space for a single-wall kitchen. This might not fit into the traditional definition of the one-wall kitchen, but it sure helps in maximizing space. The corner kitchen is typically L-shaped, but you can use just one wall for the kitchen sink, refrigerator and prep zone. It is the second wall in the corner that can hold storage units and additional cabinets. Strictly speaking, this is not the one-wall kitchen, but it still brings the same functionality but with even more cooking and storage space.
It is generally the ‘summer colors’ that agree with this style, but stronger hues also seem at home when used with restraint. Remember that whether it is pattern or color, moderation is a mantra that you need to stick to when it comes to the classic Scandinavian look. Cabinets in gentle green or light aqua along with matching chairs in the adjacent dining space take the appeal to a whole new level!
Most of us tend to stay away from black because we feel it takes away from the visual spaciousness and lightness of the kitchen. Since the kitchen is already an area of the home filled with shelves, cabinets, appliances and a whole lot more, a white backdrop is generally preferred in favor of something deeper and darker. But careful use of black in the kitchen along with right lighting can turn a seemingly ordinary space into a refined setting that is both posh and practical. A dark, tiled backsplash, cabinets clad in black or even a central island in polished black marble can usher in elegance without feeling overwhelming.
Copper worktops and islands are also starting to make a bigger impact in the modern kitchen, and a smart epoxy resin finish ensures that they are both beautifully preserved and easier to maintain. Copper naturally ages with time, and unsealed copper would gradually oxidize and give your kitchen a more timeless look. Surprisingly easy to clean, versatile and much more eco-friendly than modern, synthetic alternatives, copper kitchen countertops offer much more than you would expect.
