High-tech and high-end, the apartment has a contemporary look throughout. Moreover, the 180 square meter home features great views over the Vistula River and the National Stadium on one side and the Old Town and The University of Warsaw Library on the other.
Wasting Storage Space. Kitchens typically contain lots of stuff. Not only that, but items often concealed behind kitchen cabinets can be oddly shaped and require a lot of space, such as food processors or stand mixers. Finding a home for your appliances while keeping them easily accessible can be tricky. Because built-ins are expensive and the overall size of the area may be limited, one big design mistake is not including enough storage. Almost every kitchen has wasted space, but this can be minimized with adequate planning and forethought.

If your kitchen is small, consider installing extra-long upper cabinets with molding for extra storage space. Place lighting or greenery along the molding to draw the eyes up. Always install cabinets over the refrigerator; not utilizing this area is a waste of storage space for large or seasonal kitchen items. Finally, install shelves across the backs of the lower kitchen cabinet; this could add up to 4 square feet of storage space.
The kitchen featured below is one that still maintains its countrified side, yet has a female, sophisticated flair to it, as well. This design can be achieved quite simply by adding some prettier textiles such as fabric-covered chairs, curtains and a pretty area rug. Plus, some of the cabinets are white, new and more modern in design. Meet in the middle by uniting the manly with the womanly in your rustic kitchen. The two mesh very well together when done properly.
Rustic Mixes With Modern. Maybe an entirely wood-covered kitchen is not your style, but you still crave some small elements of the natural rustic aesthetic. Take a cue from the modern kitchen featured below. Its main design is that of a contemporary kitchen with clean white cabinets, black walls and shiny stainless steel. Then look around the kitchen a bit more and you begin to notice natural wood floors, wooden stools and an amazing wooden ladder incorporated into an otherwise modern light fixture.
