While most people tend to believe that the living space is the most popular hangout in any home facts suggest that the honor well and truly goes to the kitchen. The reasons are pretty obvious thanks to the presence of sumptuous delights tantalizing your taste buds but this also means you need to put in far more thought into what kind of vibe your kitchen exudes.
2017 is undoubtedly a year when design and decorating world has taken turn towards natural materials and interiors that are more nature-centric. With that in mind it makes plenty of sense to add a dash of wooden warmth to your contemporary kitchen. Breaking the monotony of polished and pristine finishes in the kitchen a pantry with wooden shelves or even a sliding barn door offers welcome change. The sliding barn door also saves precious space when compared to traditional doors that swing open. And if you are just looking for ways to give your old pantry a woodsy upgrade then custom wooden boxes and shelves are a smart alternative to consider.
In some cases a window backsplash is preferred because of a lack of natural light. An interesting example is the summer house designed by BAK Arquitectos where concrete was used for countertop. Even though it has a very open layout there’s not really an abundance of natural light inside the house. In order to have a kitchen that’s both bright and functional in terms of storage space they chose the window backsplash strategy.
The small window seat can also provide a welcome break from the wall of shelves and cabinets in the kitchen ushering in some much needed contrast. The throw pillows cushions and fabric of the window seat also bring textural change to a space that is otherwise dominated by wood tile and metallics. Whether you use it as a after-school hangout for your kids (as you keep an eye on them) or as a wonderful conversation nook the small window seat in the kitchen comes in mighty handy.
The most noticeable and iconic feature of this new kitchen series is the ‘frame door’ that combines a dash of Shaker furniture style and traditional kitchen door design with contemporary refinement and minimal modernity. The fusion is simply spectacular as these understated additions give the kitchen an entirely new look and set it apart from other contemporary compositions. Even in a crowd Carattere is instantly recognizable thanks to this signature feature that is available with two different variants. Whether it is with fixed handles or with grip integrated into the cabinet door these frame doors definitely make an immediate impact.
Planning for the perfect kitchen is an exercise that often involves maximizing space without compromising on form. It is a delicate balance between the two that really brings to life your dream kitchen. A pantry plays a huge role in it all. Whether you cook ever so rarely or love to regularly serve up sumptuous meals for your family and friends there is always a pantry out there that perfectly serves your needs. And unsurprisingly it is often shelf space lighting storage room and placement of the pantry that we tend to focus on. But even the most space-savvy pantries need to be aesthetic as well!
