One top kitchen design trend I love is to have sections of the upper cabinet extended onto the counter. Let's face it, we all love our small appliances (i.e. toaster oven, espresso machine) but we may not want them on display all the time. A multi-purpose kitchen island has been the go-to solution to disguise the microwave and dishwasher, but unless the island is 10 feet long, it is challenging and perhaps impractical for the island to house the small appliances we use daily off the counter. By having the upper cabinets extended to the counter and small appliances sitting behind doors, you can achieve a sleek design statement without sacrificing your morning coffee!
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. Choose metallic or glass fixtures in a set of three to hang above your kitchen island.It’s exciting to think of all the possibilities when redesigning your modern rustic kitchen. Use this guide as a starting point and see where your imagination takes you.
