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!
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.
Asian kitchen designs are pretty popular thanks to their distinctive form and the soothing effect they have on the surroundings. While not completely in that mold this kitchen merges lovely a modern design with elements of traditional Asian kitchen such as warm earthly tones attractive wooden surfaces and classic shelf spaces with glass doors encased in a wooden frame to offer the best of both worlds. Aesthetic and ergonomic this kitchen scheme is highlighted by its simple and serene aura.
Warm inviting and calming the sporadic splattering of yellow in the form of interesting kitchen seating options and the fresh flowers gives this kitchen a unique and effervescent look. Despite using largely subdued shades the kitchen stands out thanks to these daft little touches and with ample natural ventilation thanks to extensive use of glass ‘fresh mornings’ is what this kitchen advertises with glee!
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 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.
