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.
The kitchen counter is not usually positioned directly in front of the window. However sometimes the lack of space demands it. This house designed by Crisp Architects has a simple kitchen designed around a regular window to which they added a smaller horizontal one as a way to bring more light in and to ensure a cohesive look.
Another example of great use of lower cabinets in a traditional kitchen. Here there is much less stainless steel but it works so well with the cool colors throughout the kitchen like the backsplash and the glass on the doors. The grey on the island also pulls the silvery hues together very nicely!
The window seat is not all about functionality alone and you can use one to elevate the style quotient of your kitchen as well. Since most contemporary kitchens seem to be draped in neutral hues along with plenty of white the window seat can usher in bright seasonal colors with ease. Everything from the seat cover and cushions to lighting above the window seat can be easily changed with changing seasons and trends to give your kitchen a fresh overhaul. Cost-effective and convenient this kitchen redecorating idea is definitely one of the easiest to work with!
This is a kitchen designed by Crescent Builds. It has a strong traditional almost rustic design but with a modern edge. The window backsplash is definitely an interesting feature. It doesn‘t covers the entire space between the counter and the cabinets leaving a tiled section that incorporates the electric outlets.
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.
