For countertops you need a hard surface. When you are thinking about countertops you want to make sure that the counter is easy to maintain and durable. Since the separation of meat and dairy also applies to preparing food, any cracks can lead to contamination. Countertops are subjected to a kashering process in order to clean them. For the kosher kitchen quartz countertops are ideal surfaces. Quartz is an extremely hard surface that's non-porous and doesn't require sealing making it one of the best for preparing foods. For this reason they are ideal for busy family homes or anyone who wants quick and easy cleanup.
Light is absolutely essential for your kitchen, and with a smaller space it is even more important to consider your light sources. The more light you can throw on to your work spaces the better. Light should guide your design decisions. Natural light can be bounced and enhanced, but it can never be created. Do not fall for the recent inexplicable trend for curtains in your kitchen. Instead, opt for roller blinds, which will maximise the available light during the day. Bouncing light around your kitchen is now a possibility with glossy kitchen cabinets and shiny splashbacks. Skilfully placed, they will brighten up dark corners.
You are aware that the color section sets the tone for the design appearance and the atmosphere of any home – even the simplest argument becomes alive, vibrant and memorable when the accurate color selection is applied. This is especially valid for the kitchen – a premise where usually one spends a lot of time of its domestic life. For season 2018 / 2019 the trendy color choices will range from natural neutrals, oak, petrol-green and charcoal (with black accents) to sage, the upcoming exotic shades (with Orange dominated palette becoming a key color selection) and vibrant and bold color choices like deep-blue or dark, intense tonalities.
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.
