Kitchen / January 11, 2018 / Amelia Cao.
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.
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.
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.
Here is another kitchen design that includes the warm natural presence of the unpolished wood and the fresh green accents of living plants – the combination of oak and cappuccino soft lacquer work their magic to full effect.
