Pick and choose the exact features you wish to incorporate into the single-wall kitchen. One way to maximize storage here is by turning to wall-mounted cabinets and modular shelves that provide both storage and display space. 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.
Embracing a dash of darkness before you take a bigger plunge is a smart choice when it comes to altering your kitchen’s color scheme. Instead of a full-fledged paint job or even a retiling of the backsplash, start off small by trying out black accents, a gray cabinet door or two or even dark pendant lights above the kitchen counter. Combine the light and dark elements to paint a picture of contrasting synergy that leaves friends and family captivated. White countertops coupled with dark island base, gray bar stools or even just a few black vases on the floating shelves – think small before you settle on the final look.
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.
