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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
