Principia by Arclinea and Antonio Citterio: offers stylish, elegant and original combination of materials and colors. Entwining the untouched wooden structures and furnishings with stainless steel in innovative colors generated with the PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) technology, the designer offers unique experience and evolution of work zones in this kitchen project. The transitional kitchens are one of our favorite design to explore – it offers a great variety of textural and materials combinations and includes dynamic mixture of vintage, classic and contemporary design elements. The great variety of artistic expressions and combinations offers to the designer’s freedom of expression that incorporates elements from both traditional and modern design – a trend that is just picking up speed. You can have a rustic kitchen in your trendy city apartment or an urban design with natural and cozy features. In the past few years, transitional was an important design style for kitchens; we expect to see transitional kitchens remaining popular.
We do realize that in confined urban living arrangements large kitchen is not allayed an option and sometimes not even a necessity. People who like to cook but rarely do so may enjoy taking the challenge of improvising in small kitchens. Here are some examples of small kitchen settings that do not lack style, trendiness or aesthetic appearance.
At this stage, you should decide what your island countertop will be mainly used for –is it dining and a breakfast bar the main purpose of it or food prep will be everyday activity. If the first- stools and cantilevered countertop are basic. If you want to combine both functions deciding the shape of the island can be helpful. Think about it- will it be traditional rectangular island style, or a T or L-shaped island that will help you to create a multi-purpose area. For example, T-shaped islands can be useful for prepping food at one end while seating guests and family at the other.
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.
