Kitchen Ideas / March 20, 2018 / .
Here is one excellent contemporary example of “the richness of simplicity” concept – this kitchen project of INDada entwines bright and modern shapes, materials and colors in one stylish and functional design with infinite configurations and poetic details. Estivale Kitchen designed in collaboration with Benedini Associati – is combining the textures of the dramatic black marble top with the warm oak surfaces that add a rustic charm to the contemporary composition. The kitchen includes multiple structures that entwine the illuminated glass shelving glamour with the shining aluminum finishes in Liquid Metal brass colored satin antique. The combination of robust dark materials and warm wooden structures (with a vintage flavor) is always a winning combination when it comes to modern kitchen design.
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.
Quartz is attractive for its durability and its consistent color characteristics. Quartz offer impressive color selection in white, black or gray hues and are peaking up speed as a popular and functional choice in modern kitchen design. Granite remains high on the list of trendy kitchen countertops for 2018. Granite is often cited as the most durable natural material available and is known for resisting cracks and chips well. Hot pots can be placed directly on the countertop, you can cut right on the surface without damage, and spills wipe away easily.
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.
