Metals With White
If you have an all-white kitchen, you can add a touch of color by mixing the metals. Your stainless steel appliances are sure to stand out against your white island, counters and cabinets. Bronze pendant lights above the island add a different color without taking away from the modern vibe. Finish it off by placing gold vases on the island. The different metals add a bit of color without creating an eyesore in your kitchen.
Rustic and Modern
Wooden pieces such as your cabinetry, island and dining table create a rustic look in your kitchen. You can add a modern vibe to your rustic look with different metals. Start with stainless steel appliances such as your microwave and oven. Use bronze pendant lights above the island to add a softer look against the stainless steel. A metal range above the hood adds the finishing touch to your rustic but modern space.
