We would like to dedicate this post to all of you guitar enthusiasts out there who consider washing dishes a drag. Even though a guitar sink – as original as it may be- can not change this situation, it can definitely bring a cheerful touch to the process. Fabricated by a creative mind at Pearidge Concrete & Crafts, this is the sort of design that leaves plenty of room for further improvising- just imagine how many shapes you could create with a nice looking counter-top and some carving skills!
According to the designer, the story behind the unusual guitar sink goes like this: “The client needed a sink for outdoor use and wanted a custom one of a kind piece. This is an outdoor sink sitting on a custom rustic cabinet made from salvaged wood from older homes. It is 8 foot long, with lots of counter top space”. Seems easy enough, right? Even though these particular models were especially developed for the great outdoors, we can’t see any reason why any of them cannot adorn a modern kitchen, can you?
Another great use of tiles to give the kitchen its dose of yellow and gray, this is an idea for those who are not too keen on too much yellow disturbing the existing color scheme of their home. The dozen or so lemon yellow tiles combined with gray and white pieces still make plenty of visual impact and yet also seem to gently melt away into the backdrop. Notice here how the LED strip lighting literally puts the smart backsplash under the spotlight.
While some kitchens tend to revel in a flood of yellow and others look great when gray takes over the lead role, there are times when you need a perfect balance between both hues to create your dream kitchen. Yellow plays a major role in kitchens with styles ranging from rustic and farmhouse to Mediterranean and Craftsman. Gray on the other hand brings the urbane appeal of contemporary and transitional styles and even looks perfectly at home in industrial settings. It is often the style you choose that will determine which of the two colors plays the protagonist in your kitchen.
