The cork-like coloring and grain of the bar stools atop cast iron footings accent the space and add a touch of rawness. Thin silver and glass pendant lights present a sleek line in an otherwise broad space. Large plate-glass windows allow the perfect amount of light in to accent the space and highlight its openness.
Recessed lighting will make the most of a confined space, as will pull-out cupboards for dry goods. Integrated fridges are another space-saving option. The skill lies in packing it all into your space, but leaving room to get around. The use of neutral tones for walls will also make a kitchenette seem much roomier, as will ample natural light.
Color blocking, the use of bright contrasting colors on an otherwise bland background, is the key to making this space jump out at the viewer. Clear glass pendant-style light fixtures provide lighting without detracting from the intended focus of the color blocks. Cleverly placed white accessories (in this case a tea set) add a bit of dimension to the foreground to separate the island space from the back wall.
Light is crucial in kitchen designs of any style, but this is particularly the case in a modern kitchen. When you are preparing food it is vital to have excellent vision, while well-lit spaces are the hallmark of strong modern designs, wherever they are in the house. Think about the placement of windows, the colour of walls and cabinets, and whether you desire a modern kitchen which relies heavily on metal surfaces. Think about space as well.
