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.
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.
