Kitchen / January 15, 2018 / Aniyah Augustine.
Before you begin your kitchen renovation you want to consider the different options available for every aspect of the space. What is going to be the focal point of your kitchen? Is it the counter or the floor? Are you trying to create a classic design, or something more edgy? Is it going to be modern, or traditional? What type of kitchen cabinet design will complete the look of your space?
When it comes to modern kitchen design, trendy choices and innovative solutions the countertops of your kitchen arrangement need to be responsive not only to the style you choose but also to offer durability, functionalism and suitable appearance. So here are some summonses of the hottest and trendy materials for next year – design combinations that answer to style and quality requirements simultaneously.
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!
British designer-craftsman Sebastian Cox had designed series of kitchens for the English brand DeVol that they like to call “Urban – rustic” a very suitable name for this intriguing and artistic composition. Here are some examples of this unique aesthetics. Here we have contemporary and fashionable design elements (like lighting solution and material combinations) and high-tech appliances all clad and presented in natural and rustic style arrangement of wood and ceramic tiles.
