Authors: Kitchen Design Online
Contemporary kitchens are hot these days. Designing kitchens in the minimalist style is especially popular. Clients are asking to leave wall space, to use floating shelves in lieu of wall cabinets or to exclude wall cabinets all together. Having more wall space allows the homeowner to display artwork or photographs, using directional lights or picture lights to enhance the focal point. Other materials are being used to create accents, like translucent panels made out of resin and acrylic which may contain grasses, ferns, other organic or recycled materials and other items that add color and texture. When these panels are back lit, they add a glowing accent that will enhance the space.
