Copper creates a warm glow that softens the hard edges of a contemporary kitchen. If you’re using copper in a kitchen countertop and want to keep the sleek, polished look, select copper that has been sealed.
The secret is in the contrast. If you want your countertop to stand out, select a countertop color that pops or stands out from the cabinetry.
Sometimes, the simplest approach is best. That can feel particularly true when it comes to reimagining your backsplash. If you’re satisfied with the material you’ve used in the past, just not the particular shade or aesthetic, a coat of paint is an easy and affordable way to give your kitchen an entirely new look.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles, and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous, however, which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller, stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
In addition to creating more counter space, an island is also a way to add more storage and avoid kitchen clutter by using drawers, cupboards and shelves. This is beneficial especially if appliances take up a lot of cabinet room, or if you’re looking for a unique way to showcase certain items by using open shelving. Store dishes and pots within reach or keep less frequently used appliances out of the way. Another option is to use open shelving to display cookbooks or other items.
