Kitchen Ideas / March 19, 2018 / .
To summon – what are the newest trends when it comes to kitchen design and furnishing? Where two parallel tendencies in contemporary kitchen design for this season and their distinction is based on the material selection. The first tendency is orientated towards the traditional craft appearance, and natural atmosphere and they require a lot of craftsmanship and handy work- row materials usage, simple and clean silhouettes with row ages that still preserves the minimalist appearance of modern furniture design without too much decoration and ornaments. The wooden elements are dominating those types of trendy kitchens design even if they are connected and represented as a laminate of parquet surfaces. Typical examples of this trend in modern kitchen design
There is a constant battle for storage over style and vice versa in kitchens. Designers have tried to address this by coming up with ideas which utilise every space available. The addition of under-cupboard plinth storage and ceiling-high cupboards helps enormously with storage, so take full advantage of every design trick on offer. Even large kitchens need all the storage space they can cram in. Large kitchens often double up as dining areas, so consider using a kitchen island as it offers a work surface, storage space and dining area in one.
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.
One of the greatest functional benefits of the island unit is that it will greatly expand your kitchen storage space. The kitchen island being a piece of furniture itself can include a wide range of cabinet, drawers, shelves and attachments. You can introduce wine chillers and warming drawers, end shelves or a separated shelving unit, generally there are no borders to your imagination when it comes to increase the efficiency of the island. Have creative fun!
