Every bachelor needs a cool man cave where he could feel at ease, relax, cook, live, sleep and do whatever else he wants. Masculine spaces are usually dark and moody ones but they aren’t gloomy, these are relaxing dark shades. You can also play with textures to add an eye-catchy touch and of course furniture and accessories will create a mood.
Masculine kitchens are right on trend because moody kitchens are super hot right now. The main things here are kitchen cabinets, a kitchen island and maybe stools or lamps. Of course, appliances and accessories will create an ambience, too, but today we are sharing only furniture ideas.
Kitchen cabinets are the basis, this is the focal point of any kitchen, they create an ambience and change everything. Choosing your kitchen cabinets will define your kitchen design, so keep them in the style you want. Black or brown wooden cabinets with a sleek design and no handles, black metal cabinets are ideal for a modern kitchen. If you think that dark cabinets are too gloomy, rock light-colored wooden ones with a black tile backsplash. You can also try teal, dark grey and brown and some contrasting countertops and a backsplash – black marble, white stone, red brick.
Kitchen Islands And Stools
A kitchen island is not only a cooking space or a breakfast area, it can make a cool statement if you choose some contrasting material or a cool geometric shape, it can also add a textural look to your kitchen with a kitchen island material. A concrete or stone countertop will be a durable solution, and dark wood will be a nice match for dark or light-colored cabinets. Choose a geometric shape and some cool angle or a waterfall countertop of glass or marble to make your kitchen island stand out, and if your kitchen is completely wooden, you can rock a shiny metal countertop. A couple of awesome stools will help you: shiny metal, ocher leather or some soft upholstery is right what you need for your chairs or stools.
Lights and lamps can be used for highlighting your kitchen style. Take lamps in the style you’ve chosen and rock them over the kitchen island or in the whole kitchen. Bulb compositions are awesome for industrial and minimalist kitchens, you can try sheer glass lamps for traditional ones, shiny brass oversized lamps are great for traditional spaces. I also love whole compositions of modern woven or industrial pendants, they look cool!
