THE ULTIMATE KITCHEN GUIDE this is my personal favorite, by Michael Dawkins Home

Most of us interior-junkies just love to browse Pinterest or Tumblr for hours dreaming about beautiful kitchen. But sometime in life it is actually time to renovate and start on a clean, chic slate. Obviously we’re talking kitchen renovations here, and if you could go as big, bold and glam as you would like, which one of these kitchen would you splurge out on? Personally I’m drawn to the more sleek kitchen, good lighting, unique marble tops and cabinets without any knobs. There is just something so not chic with pulling a cabinet with a big old knob haha.
Also please forgive me for any sad feelings by the end of this post what you do not live in a flat with these kitchen, I can assure you I’m feeling the same way…

Okay enough of the small talk, let’s get started.

A neutral color palette is just so in right now!! And it will never go out of style. I’m living for these cabinets and that huge marble splash-back is just a statement piece right there. It’s like saying “Hey I’m rich but I’m classy about it” hehe…

modern meets marble
Just kidding! Who could ever forget about marble, even though I must say it’s been used a bit excessive lately, where ever you look, instagram, blogs and real estate websites it’s just a lot of marble…
There are more stone options out there and at least other options of marble. I think I can speak for a lot of us when I say, please no more carrera marble it’s enough now.

This is just what I was referring to when I said there are other options than carrera marble. Look at this gorgeous stone, that in a neutral color gives the apartment a fresh, trendy and modern feeling. Like a new york upper east side meets Scandinavian design, best of both worlds really.

These cabinets are for real the coolest I’ve ever seen. This does not even look like a kitchen but a piece of art.

rustic kitchensAll of these kitchens are perfect for houses or high end countryside/summer houses. The crisp wooden floor together with white walls gives these kitchen a rustic and cosy feeling.

Okay so let’s talk serious for once, the most crucial mistake people make when decorating their kitchen is forgetting all the cool and elegant lighting fixtures to add!
People think a few simple spotlights under the cabinets and in the ceiling is enough but no, there are so much more to literally light up your kitchen to the next level.
International interior designers are much better at this and Sweden/Scandinavian are light years behind hehe.

Lightning underneath the cabinets, so high tech.

Lots of spotlights under each and every cabinets or shelf.

    Massa fina kök! Håller med om att många är dåliga på belysning, men det kan vara knepigt att få till alla morderna lösningar.
