It’s almost easy to overlook the fact that this kitchen is full of stainless steel. The details in the ceiling and upper cabinets are very much traditional, but this kitchen comes into the 21st century when we look at the countertops and lower cabinetry, which are all stainless steel and yet fit in perfectly with the more traditional pieces.
There is no doubt that this kitchen is stunning, and the mix of modern and traditional is so seamless! The center cooking area looks like it belongs in a professional chef’s kitchen, and the stove blends right in with the cabinets. The result: the island stands as a whole, like a kitchen within a kitchen. Even the cabinet pulls match the handles on the oven – it’s brilliant.
From wood, we move on to the more brilliant world of glass. Glass shelves in the pantry are a rarity since most of us tend to use this storage space in a ‘not so delicate’ fashion. But sliding glass doors for the pantry are far more common. You can use various styles of glass doors to alter the style of the pantry from industrial to modern and Asian to Mediterranean! For most homeowners, it is the frosted glass doors that offer the best solution as they bring natural light into the pantry even while hiding the mess inside… A nifty choice that offers best of both worlds!
Red as a color gets plenty of bad rap when it comes to home decorating because it can seem far too overpowering when used excessively. But a red island coupled with a neutral backdrop can make a big visual impact in both contemporary and traditional kitchens alike. Red combines well with black in modern kitchens while a red island at the heart of a Mediterranean kitchen can instantly bring brightness to an otherwise mellow and inviting space. Make sure though that you pick a matte shade of red to ensure your red island is not ungainly and out of place.
