The other tendency this season are the opposite design methods – using high-tech innovations of materials and surfaces the designers create large and massive volumes with shining surfaces and simple shapes. Here we can also observe the presence of wooden elements, but in those cases, they are used more as additions and artistic details not as a leading material selection. Dark colors and contrast are also eminent. The kitchen designs by Mina and bulthaup are a wonderful representation of this trend.
Concrete or stone floors is a great way to put an industrial spin on your modern rustic kitchen. The texture and the style are all about living simply but still beautifully. This type of floor is all the rage in the high-tech world of open floor spaces. Or how about the truly classic style of hardwood floors? These floors give the appearance of a rustic lifestyle but can certainly be updated in a cool rustic modern kitchen by adding a sheen or gloss.
