Let’s be honest, kitchens are difficult to style. There’s a balance you have to keep between functionality and design. And the line between these two is quite thin.

There are, however, a few things you can consider to make your kitchen both beautiful and practical.

Classic: Black and White Palette

This combo is a classic that will never lose its power. This palette gives you plenty of freedom to choose your own style within its perimeter: modern or classic furniture, appliances, flooring and so on.

A black and white kitchen gives a contemporary look to your kitchen and allows you to play with your favorite colors when it comes to accessories.

Modern Kitchen Island

It’s probably the most important piece in your kitchen. Apart from being a visual anchor, it’s the one piece that provides the most functionality. (Tweet this!)

Here are some tips to consider when choosing a kitchen island:

  • Add more counter space;
  • Create more seating space;
  • Integrate appliances;
  • Integrate more storage space;
  • Make it multi-leveled (if the space allows).

Marble Countertops…

…are another classic to consider. No matter the color palette you pick for your kitchen renovation, a marble countertop has the potential to complement your style. It can also add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your kitchen.

Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless steel appliances offer a modern touch, so they’re a must when you renovate your kitchen. Apart from their beautiful modern design, they are also functional and easy to maintain.

Family Friendly

The kitchen is the space where the family gathers together in preparing the meals. At the same time, it is a place where the family socializes, where they bond.

No matter if yours is a family of two or four, your kitchen is the space that brings all of you together in the morning, noon, and evening.

The secret to creating a family friendly kitchen includes a few important elements:

  • Plenty of mingling space;
  • A spacious kitchen island with enough seats;
  • Extra seating space at the table.
