Steel facades and surfaces keep this modest galley kitchen streamlined and anything but . . . modest. The shape of the lights above and the details such as the wall art balance the look.
Another look of steel in a modern and streamlined kitchen. Open and uncomplicated, thanks to the white and steel.

The lighting and chair choice adds to the sleek modern look.
In this kitchen by the same designers (Mal Corbey Design), the steel gets a nice balance with hefty, raw stone and wood.

Steel paired with brick is always chic.
This stairway keeps the light flowing in and allows for a continual great view, keeping the area open.
Reminiscent of a 1940s hospital, this surprising steel piece adds surprising beauty.
Steel beautifully paired with dark wood to give the space warmth. "Intelligent Kitchen," no kidding.
Another view of how a mix of balanced materials and beautiful shapes makes this kitchen and dining area a space you would never want to leave.
