Maybe you should set the tone using a part of the room that isn't focused on as much. A painted wooden floor – in black – will pop and make a statement unlike any other flooring option. Keep your black cabinets grounded and then your open shelves up top. You`ll create a gorgeous foundation and a way to style it to your liking – in a personalized and eclectic way. But do it in a way that fits your personality or the family`s style. Make it a bit less dull by contrasting a lot of different textures as well. To up the modern notches to your design, go with a minimalistic feel. This will set off the lines and neutral tones in a way that makes everything look a bit cleaner and more sophisticated. There's something really futuristic, fun and forward-thinking about this kitchen. We're loving the black and iron combinations and the industrial accents as well.
We recommend to visit every supply house in your area that sells the type of granite you want and try to negotiate a better price, noting that you can often save about 20 percent. The shine and substance of granite is incomparable. Even though the granite may only be in your kitchen, it gives the entire house a sleek feeling, according to the Green Garage Blog. It just plain looks great. And, although it has been in vogue for a number of years, it's not a really trendy surface that will go out of style. Granite is available in a large variety of colors with a large range of patterns and striations. The different mineral contents and source locations impart great variations in appearance. Stylish edges are an option with granite countertops, from simple bullnose or beveled edges to more creative Ogee or Waterfall versions. Granite is durable, but not unbreakable, and will definitely last for decades. Unless you bang very heavy objects on the countertop or treat it very roughly, it will likely last longer than you will. Under normal kitchen conditions, granite will not chip, dent or crack and will stand up to most knives and cooking tools, as well as all of your cooking projects. Totally Granite says you can cut, chop, slice, and dice on a granite countertop without a cutting board.
Installation is tricky with no room for error. Granite slabs can be easily damaged during installation and cannot be repaired. A damaged slab must be replaced without costs. Also, the base cabinets must be sturdy enough to hold the weight of the granite slab, which is something to seriously consider if you are remodeling. According to Rempros, granite countertops, in particular, require professional installation. Cutting the slab, making the sink cutouts, polishing edges and seaming is challenging. The Family Handyman says that it‘s not worth it for a do it your selfer to invest the time and dollars required for something they will likely do only once Radon is a radioactive gas that forms when radium decays into radon, and it is naturally found in granite.
Nothing is out of sight or out of mind. All this openness brings to attention another detail: the function of these shelves. The practical thing to do would be to fill the shelves with items that you use on a daily basis. This way they'll always be right there, easy to grab and easy to use, with no need to open and close doors or drawers. Another option is to use the shelves as display surfaces for decorations such as ornate plates, framed photos and other things. Either of these options is great as long as it suits your needs.
Use a peninsula to close off a kitchen from the rest of the open floor plan or to give it more privacy without separating it from other spaces using walls. Also, don't forget the task lighting. Give your kitchen peninsula any shape and size you want. It should be customized to perfectly complement the kitchen so don`t make it too big, too small, to tall or too narrow. It needs to be just right for the purposes you have in mind. This kitchen peninsula is pretty interesting in the sense that it`s mostly white except for the side that faces the social area. Also, it has a raised bar surface which allows it to be multifunctional. Usually, the peninsula is added in the continuation of the kitchen counter to form either an L-shaped or a U-shaped layout. To make it look more like an island, attach it to a wall that has no cabinets or shelves attached to it. A peninsula is more space-efficient and sometimes even more practical than an island. They both have similar functions and their designs are quite alike in most cases. Of course, customization is always a good option.
