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.
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.
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.
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.
