Kitchen / January 25, 2018 / Kristina Blakely.
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.
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.
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.
You are aware that the color section sets the tone for the design appearance and the atmosphere of any home – even the simplest argument becomes alive, vibrant and memorable when the accurate color selection is applied. This is especially valid for the kitchen – a premise where usually one spends a lot of time of its domestic life. For season 2018 / 2019 the trendy color choices will range from natural neutrals, oak, petrol-green and charcoal (with black accents) to sage, the upcoming exotic shades (with Orange dominated palette becoming a key color selection) and vibrant and bold color choices like deep-blue or dark, intense tonalities.
