There are so many kinds of kitchen styles. Now days it can get a bit confusing with the different language used to explain a style. What does a country inspired, with an industrial edge and twist of coastal, kitchen look like???
I think the key to picking a style you like, is incorporating a bit of this and a bit of that. There is no reason you can’t have a Modern Industrial look or a Coastal Scandi look.
The choice is yours.
Decide features you like and put them together to suit your own individual style. Create a Kitchen style you are going to enjoy spending time in. Make it work well with the rest of your house, indoors and outdoors.
Industrial style –
is all about texture. Tactile finishes work wonderfully. Stainless steel is a great option. Fridges, sinks, range hoods. You could opt for pendant lights, particularly those with exposed bulbs and hard exteriors. Simple accessories with a slight vintage vibe are ideal. Bench tops and splash backs. Texture is the key. Tap ware keep sleek, stylish and simple. Black and or stainless. Choice your seating using a warehouse style. Timber or steel pieces.
has a stream line look. Predominate colours are usually black, white with contrast of grey for variation. Integrate your appliances into your cabinetry to achieve the streamline look. Use a sleek glass, tile or stone splash back. Your lighting should be minimal and clean. You could create a statement piece in your tap ware. Sleek and black. Stone bench tops work beautifully in this space. Seating and accessories should achieve a modern look.
Scandinavian design –
is characteristic by clean lines, crisp whites and warm timbers, with accents of other colours like stone and copper. Streamline your major appliances, integrate them into your cabinetry. Use a combination of timber, enamel and concrete with your lighting, this style works perfectly. Bench tops choices are usually white or timber, but a darker stone top can always work as a feature piece. White works well for your tap ware but copper can give you a modern twist. Seating should be simple, classic design. Timber is ideal.
