New company Plykea launched a series of birch ply doors and worktops that can be attached to IKEA’s ‘Metod’ kitchen cupboards. Digital product designer Tim Diacon wanted a speedy way in which to create a handsome kitchen on a finite budget. Already possessing an IKEA kitchen Tim searched for a company that could make a set of birch ply fronts. Unsuccessful in his quest Tim turned to his friend Adam Vergette for help—Adam is a furniture designer and a one-time production worker with Vitsœ. The two men hatched a plan to create an online service that would provide reasonably priced bespoke plywood doors drawer fronts worktops and cover panels for IKEA kitchen cabinets: and so Plykea was born.
Increasingly white marble countertops are the surfaces of choice in most kitchens and these work beautifully when combined with an island in blue. Islands in darker shades of blue steal the spotlight in traditional and coastal kitchens while those clad in lighter chic bluish-gray shades feel at home in modern and refined spaces. Combine these with kitchen cabinets in white and you have a dashing cheerful kitchen.
While in all the above kitchen designs we have seen a presence of vivid tones and glittering surfaces that draw your attention the last one in the collection tones down the ‘oomph’ with natural shades and sober surfaces that stand out in their own unique way. A fantastic kitchen plan for those who like the less ‘glitzy’ variants this kitchen is spacious graceful craftily built and employs neutral colors to create a tranquil setting. Natural lighting and a lovely rug at its heart further highlight its exquisiteness.
The Brown Residence by Lake|Flato Architects has a pretty interesting kitchen. The backsplash window doesn’t look directly outdoors but rather into a hallway. It‘s an interesting way of connecting the spaces and ensuring a seamless transition and a continuous flow between them.
When the kitchen has such a great potential for a wonderful view it‘s a real shame to ignore it. This is a residence located in Northcote a suburb of Melbourne Australia. Its kitchen is open and spacious and it compensates for the lack of windows with a skylight a white-based color palette and an amazing panorama window instead of a backsplash.
There is nothing quite like enjoying a lovely view outside the window as you relax indoors and catch up on your favorite reading material while sipping on a beverage of your choice. With summer here the idea of a fabulous window seat that overlooks the scenic landscape outside or connects the interior with the small rear garden or poolscape is even more tantalizing. Window seats combine the comfort of indoor seating with aesthetics of the outdoors; acting as a bridge between both the realms. They are pretty easy to install and in modern homes where large glass windows are increasingly becoming common window seats make plenty of sense.
