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.
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.
It is interesting that the blue hues and tonalities give to the certain kitchen vintage or rustic charm and even when the set is contemporary in its appearance and functionality like in the case of Metalwood by Key Cucine – the vintage hint is present. Here the dark shades of gray and a new color shade vino (based on Marsala, Pantone Color of the Year 2015) entwine in one cozy arrangement that includes vintage hints of the design. The kitchen Casa Vino by Rational combines all the advantages of a modern high-tech lifestyle with “old-fashioned“ cozy living.
And speaking of lightness and style – here is another unique and charming Kitchen design by DeVol featuring a woven coppiced-beech panels and clear lined silhouette. Simple, functional and elegant this kitchen island can be suited in multiple design arrangements.
