This season Minacciolo is introducing Minà – a novel, bold rust finish for kitchen design. Imaginative recall of the vintage appearance in Italian tradition this unusual material selection offers highly textured reddish-brown rust effect that has retro yet decidedly contemporary feel. The multi-purpose Minà Island has a special treatment that gives a unique aged look and also provides an appealing texture. Artistic custom made knobs and details add to the vintage charm of the assembly. The tall cabinets are reminiscent of ice-boxes from the early decades of the 1900-s, and the warm reddish highlights introduce cozy nuance to the premises.
One top kitchen design trend I love is to have sections of the upper cabinet extended onto the counter. Let's face it, we all love our small appliances (i.e. toaster oven, espresso machine) but we may not want them on display all the time. A multi-purpose kitchen island has been the go-to solution to disguise the microwave and dishwasher, but unless the island is 10 feet long, it is challenging and perhaps impractical for the island to house the small appliances we use daily off the counter. By having the upper cabinets extended to the counter and small appliances sitting behind doors, you can achieve a sleek design statement without sacrificing your morning coffee!
