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.
The kitchen of this lakeside villa designed by Belatchew Arkitekter receives light from two sides. It has counters on two walls that face each other and both of them have large windows that completely replace the backsplash. The windows bring in light but more importantly offer wonderful views of the nearby lake and surrounding landscape.
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.
It’s possible to have a bright kitchen filled with light and also lots of storage. Consider windows instead of the standard backsplash and clerestory windows just above the wall-mounted cabinets. It’s the strategy employed by Berghuis Construction when putting together this modern black and white kitchen.
Trendy kitchen that is draped in a dazzling display of violet this is an ideal kitchen color scheme for those who wish to incorporate plenty of zest and abundant liveliness while not giving up on the sleek and refined urban look. The gorgeous shelves whether in violet or in white are the showstoppers here thanks to their distinctive presence while the glittering countertop and exquisite arrangement add to their allure.
