Kitchen / January 18, 2018 / Aniyah Augustine.
While white kitchens will never go out of style, we’re seeing a move towards warmer materials and a less utilitarian or expected approach. Consider the new kitchen an extension of the living and dining spaces, especially those in an open concept arrangement. The thought process is a “not so kitchen, kitchen”. Working with a cohesive colour palette and materials to achieve a sense of unity with adjacent spaces provides a connection with interior elements such as furniture, lighting and decorative details, leaving the kitchen with all the importance of function yet all the style to go along with the rest of your home.
Take a lesson from your grandmother if you want to know how a kitchen design can be both functional and attractive. Imagine 1141 Pure White countertops set off by gorgeous vintage blue cabinets, with dark metallic knobs and handles. Add some mesh behind the glass of the cabinet doors, and you have yourself a beautiful, vintage kitchen. And of course, vintage design is a hot trend this year.
Thanks to new technologies, innovations and designers’ imagination – there are so many possibilities for kitchen design and arrangement that leading when we select one for our home, should be only our lifestyle, location and sense of taste. For people who live in the city, the possibilities are infinite: small and functional kitchens, jazzy urban compositions, fabric produced articles, innovative inventions that create surfaces resistible to damage and erosion and so on. For the ones that prefer more natural lifestyle and want to feel the connection with nature – the trends leading to more rustic design, the recycled materials selection and natural composition should be more suited. Just take your pick and enjoy.
There are endless possibilities available for your kitchen cabinet design, so it is imperative to do your research before your big decision is made. The cabinetry is the perfect way to achieve the overall design of your kitchen. For example, are you going to install upper cabinetry to maximize storage, or will you opt for open shelving? Do your cabinets work well with your new countertop- in colour, style and material? The following are some kitchen cabinet design ideas and combinations for you to consider.
