Here is a similar kitchen island shape frame designed by Pattina Kitchen for Sanwa Company, Japan, featuring matte black frame, rough wood grain pattern and Italian-made ceramic tiles countertop. The composition has a simple, clear lined construction that possesses certain elegance and modern appearance with just a hint of retro design and “old-fashioned” spirit.
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.
Skylights can be an answer to both the storage and lighting problem. By throwing light downwards and outwards, the need for small windows is reduced, freeing up valuable vertical wall space which can then be used for high-rise cupboards. With a galley kitchen, consider installing French windows opening out on to your garden. If you lay a deck right outside the exit you can leave the windows open during the summer, increasing the feeling of space by making a garden room.
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.
