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.
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.
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.
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.
