Minimalist and innovative the b2 is inspired by the golden rule of craftsmanship: “Tools and materials must always be kept tidy and close at hand.” Viewing the kitchen premise as an experimental factory the functional organization principal of the design reduces the kitchen to three sculptural elements: The kitchen tool cabinet, the workbench, and the kitchen appliance cabinet. The flexibility, elegant silhouette and innovative charm of these features mean that bulthaup b2 can also adapt to new spatial circumstances and multiple design variations.
There is so much you can do with cabinets in a modern rustic kitchen. Take, for example, oak wood cabinets painted white. You can add modern touches, such as metallic handles, to offset the rustic look. Another idea for cabinets is all metal. Why not install metal cabinets and counters? They will help create the look of a truly industrial modern rustic kitchen.
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.
Another way to achieve a rustic kitchen design is with your countertops. A neutral toned countertop, such as 6046 Moorland Fog, is a great way to bring your modern rustic kitchen to the next level. The soft and gentile tones of this granite inspired countertop is the perfect balance between the traditional and modern rustic kitchen. Opting for a butcher’s block in lieu of an island is another stylish way to increase the functionality of your new kitchen.
