Add a pop of colour to your monochromatic space with accessories.  In the kitchen this is easily achieved by selecting small appliances in vibrant colours.  Adding colour to a room creates points of interest directing the eye to view the room from various perspectives… when done well it has a huge impact!

MONOCHROME MAGIC

Colour is not everyone’s cup of tea… and this kitchen shows just how little colour is needed to create a truly impactful space.

Matte black teamed with white marble creates a high-contrast, ultra-modern space proving that black really is the new black!  This contemporary kitchen is pure monochrome magic.

Modern storage solutions come in many shapes and sizes, such as drawers within drawers, making it easy for you to keep your kitchen free from clutter.

Have an open mind when consulting with your kitchen designer.  An experienced designer will offer up great suggestions.  However, it is your space and you know how you will live and work in it, so don’t be afraid to speak up about what will make your life easier.

Design elements in the kitchen need not be purely functional.  A reflective splashback creates interest by mirroring the open-plan living space and in this instance the view of the cityscape below.

Lighting is super important! Ambient, mood and task lighting should all be considered.  Strip lighting beneath wall cabinets allows for working on countertops without casting shadows.
