Are you a fan of cabinets and shelves? Having an open rack is the best for people who love to see their jars or spices, glassware, and wine glasses. Besides being functional and pretty to look at, it gives you more space for other kitchen appliances. Plus, it also makes cooking easier because the items are already visible and easy to pick up.

As seen on TV shows and movies, Japanese-inspired homes are eye-pleasing. Zen-inspired designs are relaxing, appealing, and visually balanced. This helps in the flow of positive energy. A typical Zen kitchen consists of white to neutral palettes, wooden floorings, and of course, the use of natural light. This modern, sleek and stylish design is ideal for houses with small space. You may also include indoor plants to give that fresh vibe in the kitchen. 

Shades of Blue

Speaking of blues, shades of blue work well in the kitchen. Lighter shades of blue create a laid-back feeling to your space. A combination of white walls and blue cabinets and kitchenware will undoubtedly give you that relaxing vibe. If you want a touch of drama, use navy blue paired with silver or steel. But if you prefer something refreshing, Tiffany blue or turquoise is the best option.

Island Pieces

Whether it be made of granite, wood, or metal, kitchen islands never go out of style. Both stylish and functional, this design is perfect for any kitchen interior. If you prefer an industrial look for your kitchen, a pepper granite island is ideal for achieving a modern touch. You may use a woody island topped with white ceramic tiles for a cozy space, very simple and sleek. Or, if you are the type of person that prefers dark shades, try installing a black island clad topped with black marble. And if you like to play with your space, you may want to use a curved island topped with a rounded, clear lacquer glass finish.
