When we step into the kitchen, we immediately feel the warm vibe it exudes. As the heart of the home and as the special place where delicious magic happens, this area is often completed with bright and cheerful hues. If given a chance, would you want to experiment with a different look?

Maintain a neutral kitchen by working with a concrete countertop, cement slabs for shelving, and a gray palette for the walls and cabinets.

Giving your walls an upgrade with the right treatment can also help you achieve the space of your dreams. Pair your copper pendant lights with silver mosaic tiles to add a modern flair to your space.
