Many homeowners enjoy installing chandeliers or pendant and hanging fixtures in the living and sitting room for this reason.

As long as the colors are complementing each other, you can use a combination of even three to four colors. Along with colors, they must also bear different depths and heights. Some should be deep, while some should be shallow. If you are aiming for wall shelves, then you can opt for the open style. Now, we come to the material to be used.

The Traditional Theme, A lot of us refuse to succumb to the ever-changing trends in the world of design and wish to stick to the confines of traditional design that we believe defines our personal style. Black is so versatile a color that it can be molded into any design and any theme. As such, incorporate such antique cabinets into your traditional kitchen design. These are actually similar to the ones that have been mentioned in the rustic theme, minus the distressed look. The unique motifs that adorn them, along with the molding and traditional handles, all speak for themselves when used. Use marble, instead of granite, for the ultimate traditional appeal. Incorporate yellow lights and not the contemporary white ones for a warm feel. Combine these cabinets with redwood flooring and some unique colors, and create a unique combination of a traditional-yet-rustic appearance.

Although kitchen cabinets are the focal point of beauty, they still have to be functional enough to house all the essential utensils, dinnerware, pots, and pans. Contemporary kitchens use the universal design principles that focus on flexibility, intuitive use, accident prevention, and minimizing fatigue. The cabinets are easier to access, with pullout shelves, sliding drawers, and spinning 'lazy susans'. The cabinets and the drawer pulls have large stainless steel bars and usually have either no handles, or just have simplistic metallic pulls. These allow for an easy clean up and a durable functioning of your kitchen. An important focus of contemporary kitchens are the natural and other lightings, which are usually used in more numbers and are adjustable, like track lighting. Installing lights under the kitchen not only ensures increased visibility during food preparation, but also highlights the stunning details of your new contemporary kitchen cabinets and the designed interiors.
