Kitchen / January 22, 2018 / Clara Mcclelland.
Kitchens of yesteryear served the sole purpose of function: get in, get the cooking done, clean up, and get out. The kitchen is the heart of the home and a great place to entertain. For this reason, it is imperative to create a space that is both functional and beautiful. There are so many trends to consider for your kitchen remodel-such as a timeless rustic design. In today’s modern world, rustic doesn’t have to equal raw wood paneling or floors. Here are some tips for you to consider when bringing your modern rustic kitchen to life.
Thanks to new technologies, innovations and designers’ imagination – there are so many possibilities for kitchen design and arrangement that leading when we select one for our home, should be only our lifestyle, location and sense of taste. For people who live in the city, the possibilities are infinite: small and functional kitchens, jazzy urban compositions, fabric produced articles, innovative inventions that create surfaces resistible to damage and erosion and so on. For the ones that prefer more natural lifestyle and want to feel the connection with nature – the trends leading to more rustic design, the recycled materials selection and natural composition should be more suited. Just take your pick and enjoy.
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.
To summon – what are the newest trends when it comes to kitchen design and furnishing? Where two parallel tendencies in contemporary kitchen design for this season and their distinction is based on the material selection. The first tendency is orientated towards the traditional craft appearance, and natural atmosphere and they require a lot of craftsmanship and handy work- row materials usage, simple and clean silhouettes with row ages that still preserves the minimalist appearance of modern furniture design without too much decoration and ornaments. The wooden elements are dominating those types of trendy kitchens design even if they are connected and represented as a laminate of parquet surfaces. Typical examples of this trend in modern kitchen design are the projects of DeVol.
