Kitchen Ideas / March 18, 2018 / .
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.
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.
The other tendency this season are the opposite design methods – using high-tech innovations of materials and surfaces the designers create large and massive volumes with shining surfaces and simple shapes. Here we can also observe the presence of wooden elements, but in those cases, they are used more as additions and artistic details not as a leading material selection. Dark colors and contrast are also eminent. The kitchen designs by Mina and bulthaup are a wonderful representation of this trend.
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!
