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.
Another novelty that evokes the tradition of Italian master craftsmen is this playfully arranged worktop a part of the Minà kitchen project. Combining traditions, retro hints, and cutting-edge technology the designer composed multifunctional island with an artistic and dynamic pattern. Minà features a pewter-plated steel worktop combined with a breakfast bar tiled in lava stone. The exquisite artisanal surfaces of the island is made by laying Sicilian glazed volcanic stone tiles over a water-repellent support: innovative, artistic and brings back the rich textural and colorful effect into the kitchen.
