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.
Finding the right color for your kitchen island is far simpler than you think. This first step is to settle on both the style and the color scheme of the kitchen itself. Once you have this sorted most of the work is done and your choices are instantly narrowed down. A kitchen with too many colors looks cluttered and hence it is best to pick a color for the island that is repeated elsewhere. Of course a left-field choice is always welcome in an eclectic kitchen but it does not work in most other kitchens. Whether it is stunning teal island in a polished contemporary kitchen or one in sunny yellow at the heart of a traditional kitchen keeping the cabinets and the backdrop as neutral as possible helps immensely as well.
The mix of stainless steel and natural stone is really effortless here since the marble’s grey tones match the cabinets so perfectly. The touch of fun brought into this otherwise serious space via the chandelier above the table is so refreshing!
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.
The window seat is not all about functionality alone and you can use one to elevate the style quotient of your kitchen as well.

Cost-effective and convenient this kitchen redecorating idea is definitely one of the easiest to work with!
