Kitchen Ideas / March 5, 2018 / .
This exquisite kitchen design Bondi by Leicht Küchen is presenting us with a skillful combination of contrast: the bright wood surfaces meet the velvety matt lacquer, the warm tone of the wood meets the cooler air of the carbon gray. The seamless transition from the dark countertops (decided in granite, marble or metal) into the light wooden cabinetry and structures possesses intriguing aesthetics. The fresh green accents add to the unique and charming composition of materials, textures, and colors. Here is another kitchen design that includes the warm natural presence of the unpolished wood and the fresh green accents of living plants – the combination of oak and cappuccino soft lacquer work their magic to full effect.
The number you should keep in mind is 42 inches -that is the minimum amount of space you must have between the unit and any surrounding objects. Here is the place to consider what your countertop island will be used for – will it be a space for preparing meals, or for casual dining. You, of course, can combine both; the design could include a 36-inch-high work countertop for food preparation and a 42-inch-high bar for the meals. And also you can have multiple islands and each can be devoted to a different set of activities.
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!
