Kitchen Ideas / March 20, 2018 /
Before diving into the smallest details of your kitchen interior design such as decorative knobs, knife block, color choices, you must consider first the space arrangement and the territorial role of the island. The island unit can be used to divide the kitchen and living areas in an open-plan house or in cases to delineate the working from dining zone. It may combine bar chair area with classical dining chair set or even- if space permit- accordingly upholstered sofas. Keep in mind that the kitchen island furniture and style should enhance the room’s esthetic and style as well as the style of any other room it opens up to.
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.
