The single-wall kitchen has come a long from its more simple origins and some of today’s exceptional designs seem like as much a work of art as they feel like an extension of the posh living space. Once again, do not be constrained by the classic definition of the one-wall kitchen and work with what your specific needs are. Some might not really need a giant fridge in the kitchen while others could do with a minimal and unassuming prep zone. Even a traditional single-wall kitchen frees up space for a more spacious dining room next to it by eliminating the unnecessary island and ensures your small living space feels even roomier.
A kitchen in bluish-gray leads the pack here with other lighter hues of gray following closely behind. When choosing gray as the principle color in the contemporary kitchen, it is best to pick a cooler and lighter shade as it give the space an inviting, light-filled and upbeat vibe. Add in white countertops, bar stools, backsplash or other accent features to create visual interest and contrast.
Don’t forget about the value of open base cabinetry. Even if your open shelving isn’t mounted on the wall, it’s handy on any level. Easy access is the key. Grouping stainless steel items creates a clean look and provides another layer of organization to your kitchen. Wood floors are popular in all kitchens, no matter the color. But by choosing wood for your white kitchen, you’re using a creative avenue to bring depth and texture into an otherwise plain space. Jen Langston chose a lighter stain for the floor to keep things feeling fresh.
