KITCHENS AS FAMILY ROOMS
Gone are the days when the living space was segregated from the dining space by endless rooms and furniture. More and more households today, are merging the dining and living areas into a unified space to entertain guests. Because of this, kitchen counters and islands are increasingly becoming dining areas and kitchen cabinets and accessories, more like fine furniture. This arrangement also provides ample space for a banquet style of dining, making it a comfortable way for people to congregate and get the conversation flowing.
Nothing speaks elegance, minimalism and simplicity as profoundly as ‘White’. White cabinets are beautiful and timeless, versatile enough to blend with any décor. One of the main plus points of such cabinets are their adaptability to different architectural styles. They look beautiful in a rustic setting, or country chic and even in contemporary styles. White cabinetry throws up multiple choices when it comes to room décor and color palettes and you can choose to do as much as or as little as you like in your kitchen.
STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES
Nothing screams sophistication and richness as much as chrome and steel. Stainless steel appliances look beautiful and work with various styles. The sleekness of silver gives a polished look to refrigerators, cooktops and even waste bins. These are also easier to clean and maintain. Nowadays, appliances in fingerprint-resistant steel, even eliminate the issue with fingerprints.
