Light is absolutely essential for your kitchen, and with a smaller space it is even more important to consider your light sources. The more light you can throw on to your work spaces the better. Light should guide your design decisions. Natural light can be bounced and enhanced, but it can never be created. Do not fall for the recent inexplicable trend for curtains in your kitchen. Instead, opt for roller blinds, which will maximise the available light during the day. Bouncing light around your kitchen is now a possibility with glossy kitchen cabinets and shiny splashbacks. Skilfully placed, they will brighten up dark corners.
Another color design approach is the usage of natural and earthly color shades in a contemporary setting. The inspiration from nature represented by the highly attractive veneers – one in white glazed oak and other in Brazil glazed oak, take a central stage of the design, giving a unique note to the modern functional composition. Apparat from the trends in color when it comes to kitchen design there is a visible trend in the materials palette that composes the kitchen cabinetry and appliances. Blending sophisticated color selection with high-quality materials: wood, concrete, Corian, glass or organic glass, ceramic, stone or metal in different shades – becomes a recipe for unique and beautiful kitchen design. Varying the styles from classic to modern, from country house style to high-tech modernistic the designers play with the surfaces statement – matt and glossy, dark and light, with and without handles – each with its one density and appearance.
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!
For casual seating at your island, you may want bar stools or pub-style seating that will fit your kitchen island design. Measure carefully the height of the island top by considering the distance from the floor to the underside of the surface – that will help you to ensure that there is enough room for proper leg movement before determining the style of the seating that will work best for you.
