Details like shaped cabinet doors, niches for spices and oils, and decorative lighting should all be considered while working on the design development and finish/fixture selection. Picking bar stools and tables and chairs for an eat‐in kitchen usually comes at the end, but this is also important, so don't just mail it in at this point. Think about adding patina and texture through vintage pieces if you can find them. And don't forget about items like decorative plate racks, artwork and area rugs or runners. Small touches like this can add much character to a newly remodeled kitchen.
Softly flecked or grainy whites also work well paired with brass accents, such as these contemporary lights. Again, the subtle richness holds its own without fighting for attention and keeps the countertop from feeling too austere – great for a dining island where you want people to actually feel comfortable dining.
Gather and display. This cute kitchen demonstrates how you can be organized and chic at the same time. A charming crock to hold wooden spoons, a wall‐mounted crate or two to provide a home for vintage‐style scales and jugs, a small wall‐mounted spice rack – they all add a pretty touch as well as having a practical function.
