Current furnishing trends for your kitchen
Many kitchens contain in their design at the same time classic and modern elements. The reasons can be many. Perhaps this is a historic house whose aesthetics must be preserved without compromising modern functionality. Or maybe the family members are of different ages and you would like to have something for every taste?
How do you bring classic and modern under one roof and still achieve a seamless look? There are actually several well-functioning strategies. But we now want to pay special attention to one of these. It’s about combining glass, wood and metal in the kitchen. The three materials complement each other wonderfully and bring their properties to advantage. At the same time, their appearance is evenly distributed between classic and modern kitchen design.
Combine metal, glass and wood
Whether used as accents or key elements in the kitchen, you can achieve the desired effect with it: you have a seemingly seamless kitchen that pays tribute to both modernity and tradition.
Wooden cabinets and accessories made of metal
A bright Scandinavian kitchen can also look very classic if it is equipped with wooden cabinets.
To make their look look a bit more modern, you should combine with metal accessories. The big windows would introduce the glass into the game. They create a healthy atmosphere in which both the traditional and the classical interact wonderfully.

Kitchen furniture made of metal and details made of wood
The furniture is another way of introducing the metal into the interior. Furthermore, you can distribute some functional objects with decorative effect in the room. That would be another way to combine both materials. They fulfill the role of details in this case. Nevertheless, you can weld the look together in a kitchen unit that combines traditional and modern elements. What do you think of a chandelier made of wood or glass?

Metal and wooden frames, glass surfaces
When more light enters a kitchen, you feel like you live in a wider space. This makes the atmosphere more comfortable and glass is also very practical in many ways. You can opt for wood or metal frames so that the glass surfaces harmoniously join classic elements in the design.

Installation shelves made of wood
Would you like a bit more warmth in a very modern kitchen? Then you can achieve this wonderfully by functional built-in furniture. For example, floor to ceiling shelves would be a wonderful option. They would look good even in the most modern minimalist kitchen. This is a very practical solution for any city apartment, where the storage space is always scarce.

Kitchen island or wooden dining table
You can keep everything minimalist, use lots of glass and metal in your kitchen, and still put a rustic-style dining table or kitchen island in the middle. This combination also occurs in many designer kitchens. An appropriate context for such kitchen equipment would be a house in the countryside. Although you can treat yourself to modern luxury, but at the same time the rustic furniture refers to the outside ambience.

From all these examples we see that in the modern interior, glass, metal and wood can easily harmonize with each other. The first material comes naturally through the windows of course used. The metal is a common choice for accessories. At the same time, it has a mirror effect that helps to make the room more open and comfortable. Within this modern context, wood provides comfort. At the same time, the mix of these three materials naturally creates contrasts and sets great visual accents.
