While white kitchens will never go out of style, we’re seeing a move towards warmer materials and a less utilitarian or expected approach. Consider the new kitchen an extension of the living and dining spaces, especially those in an open concept arrangement. The thought process is a “not so kitchen, kitchen”. Working with a cohesive colour palette and materials to achieve a sense of unity with adjacent spaces provides a connection with interior elements such as furniture, lighting and decorative details, leaving the kitchen with all the importance of function yet all the style to go along with the rest of your home.
For a rustic look, consider whimsical light fixtures. In a modern kitchen, pendant lighting is the way to go, and you will only have to choose from the abundant options in the lighting store.

Use this guide as a starting point and see where your imagination takes you.
