At this stage, you should decide what your island countertop will be mainly used for –is it dining and a breakfast bar the main purpose of it or food prep will be everyday activity. If the first- stools and cantilevered countertop are basic. If you want to combine both functions deciding the shape of the island can be helpful. Think about it- will it be traditional rectangular island style, or a T or L-shaped island that will help you to create a multi-purpose area. For example, T-shaped islands can be useful for prepping food at one end while seating guests and family at the other.
Here is one excellent contemporary example of “the richness of simplicity” concept – this kitchen project of INDada entwines bright and modern shapes, materials and colors in one stylish and functional design with infinite configurations and poetic details. Estivale Kitchen designed in collaboration with Benedini Associati – is combining the textures of the dramatic black marble top with the warm oak surfaces that add a rustic charm to the contemporary composition. The kitchen includes multiple structures that entwine the illuminated glass shelving glamour with the shining aluminum finishes in Liquid Metal brass colored satin antique. The combination of robust dark materials and warm wooden structures (with a vintage flavor) is always a winning combination when it comes to modern kitchen design.
As you are designing your kitchen and accounting for doubled appliances and maximizing it's storage, keep in mind that twice the appliances also means twice the electrical and plumbing needs. Be sure to take this into account and factor in clearance for your appliances, and also to install adequate ventilation to remove extra cooking fumes and moisture. These may infringe on spaces that would otherwise be used for cabinetry and for this reason a lot of designers suggest extending cabinetry to the ceiling to allow for maximum storage.
This exquisite kitchen design Bondi by Leicht Küchen is presenting us with a skillful combination of contrast: the bright wood surfaces meet the velvety matt lacquer, the warm tone of the wood meets the cooler air of the carbon gray. The seamless transition from the dark countertops (decided in granite, marble or metal) into the light wooden cabinetry and structures possesses intriguing aesthetics. The fresh green accents add to the unique and charming composition of materials, textures, and colors. Here is another kitchen design that includes the warm natural presence of the unpolished wood and the fresh green accents of living plants – the combination of oak and cappuccino soft lacquer work their magic to full effect.
