Couples often have different design style preferences, especially in the most important room of the home – the kitchen. One of the benefits of the kitchen is that it can take on almost any combination of design styles and still look great, with the right design plan in place. Consider mixing styles to make your kitchen space unique to your personality as a couple or family.
Rustic and Industrial
Rustic and industrial styles are very similar. Both use raw materials and have a rugged look when finished. To create this combination of styles in your kitchen, consider a stainless steel backsplash for your stove area, a concrete countertop and Edison pendant lights with reclaimed wood for the cabinets and island. This makes the kitchen look vintage and has personality.
Country and Modern
Country is not a design style that is very popular but is requested with a modern twist. Consider brighter colors rather than muted gray/blue and gray/green hues. Simple, straight lines with minimal patterns updates a country theme. Still use materials such as quilts, draperies and throw pillows but choose the textures and patterns carefully for your kitchen seating nook. Fewer colors is best to make this match a cohesive one.
Mid-Century and Contemporary
Mid-century and contemporary are both very simple designs but are both quite specific. To achieve this combination, you may require a bit of additional funding since mid-century modern furniture and contemporary accents are specific. You can apply for funding to complete your project with services like ukhomeandpersonalloans.co.uk/, to ensure that you have the necessary funds for unexpected incidents. With these two specific styles, special orders may have to be placed to obtain era-specific furniture pieces.
In the kitchen, consider bulky stools and a solid wood table with simple chairs for your mid-century elements. Contemporary can blend in with quartz countertops, a simple exhaust hood and cabinet hardware.
This is almost a match made in heaven. Modern is simple, clean lines. Industrial is raw materials mainly made of metal. Use poly-coated raw metal pieces for stool bases and table frames. Consider open metal shelving instead of closed cabinets. Implement modern style in your light fixtures, countertop and backsplash.
A fun backsplash for a modern concept is a herringbone subway patterned tile in a complementing contrast color. Consider a rectangular sink, without the apron, with a brushed nickel faucet system. Another backsplash option for behind the stove area for modern and industrial is hammered stainless steel.
These mish-mashes of styles work seamlessly together when properly planned out. It is ideal to obtain samples of materials to compare them against each other to make sure the combination is going to work. Kitchens need pops of color and focal points just like the rest of the home, so create a focal feature either with the island or breakfast nook area. Simple décor, leaving enough room for food preparation space, small appliances and commonly used items is ideal in every kitchen design regardless of the style.
