Kitchen Ideas / March 20, 2018 /
Think carefully about colour. A dark colour and dark units may close a small kitchen down, but will add immense drama to a larger kitchen. Dark colours are great for evening dining and entertaining, but if you are trying to maximise light it will be swallowed up by gloomy shades. Gloss cupboard doors are really popular at the moment, and they do add a real sense of chic and prestige to your kitchen. Think about textures and finishes at the same time as you consider light to make the best use of what you have. By keeping tall cabinets the same colour you can add a sense of height to a kitchen with a low ceiling. Using white wall cabinets on the walls and more brightly coloured base units gives a sense of space too. Another favourite trick that designers use is installing units which are on legs, giving the illusion of more floor space. Add a shiny floor surface and the effect is increased.
As we have mentioned before – marble is synonymous with luxury and style, and it becomes a classic choice for any elegant setting. It is functional and stable material, has a great aesthetical and color selection, it responds well to temperature and mechanical damage; only with stains, one should be careful. And of course for the ones that prefer more natural and stylish appearance wood is always a beautiful and aesthetic choice. Lately, the Reclaimed wood countertop becomes a hot choice for kitchen design – it is sustainable and Nature-friendly, so it is a conscious choice. It’s well known that using wood, unlike natural stones such as marble and granite, is an environmentally more sustainable resource because wood is renewable and using reclaimed wood is even more so, because of is double use. So reclaimed wood countertop is not only carrying irresistible charm and personality into your kitchen design but is also the right choice for the planet.
