Kitchen / June 1, 2018 /
Instead of traditional closed upper cabinets, go for storage that feels airy instead of bulky. Only and repeat only, do this if you are not a tornado in the kitchen, and can keep everything neat and tidy. This is not just keeping things tidy and tucked away, although it is that too. It is about maintaining clean lines, without tons of overly decorative details. Avoid things like corbels and ornate cabinet pulls, and opt for a more minimalist look instead. The small metal hardware and modern cabinet fronts in kitchen keep things open and fuss free.
Certain elements, like backless barstools, wire kitchen islands, or glass pendant lights for example, leave sight lines open and do not trip up your eye as you move around the room. Floating countertop, and mid century stools, do just that. We talk a lot about using reflective mirrors strategically, but stainless steel appliances, glossy floors, satin paint, glass tiles, and sleek cabinets can also do the trick.
