To ensure the room remains bright and open, add a counter in a pale shade like crisp white. Choose a thinner design for a contemporary look that tie in with other linear features. Pale timber floorboards will lift the room adding warmth to an otherwise stark palette. This will also soften the look making the room feel cosier and more inviting. Continue the dark finish of the charcoal colour scheme with bold, black cupboard accessories in a bar design. The black tone can also be carried through to other fixtures with a decorative faucet.
