In contemporary kitchens, sleek islands, that morph into dining tables, have become a staple. But what about good ol’ cabinets? Well, many a manufacturer try to reinvent the classic furniture element, and the results are, at times, simply stunning.
You can find all kinds of unique on the market – from the retro-futuristic Sant Louis to the freestanding Tivali. If you want to feel like a designer, Lago may be a good choice. And, no, that’s not a typo.
Time to swap out your boring kitchen island with one that is far more efficient and undoubtedly eye-catching! Marble island countertops coupled with a block of wood that can either serve as prep area or even the breakfast bar is a trendy choice indeed. Another nifty way to blend wood and marble is with an island that has a complete marble countertop but a wooden base and storage units with wooden doors. Matching bar stools and pendant lighting can complete a delightful kitchen that turns heads instantly.
Kitchen islands have also been an integral part of contemporary kitchens for a while. They’re beautiful, they’re convenient. And there aren’t many furnishings that can include so many functions at once. Versatility is their main virtue, however. We’re especially enamoured with D90 design by TM Italia.
Unique designs are constantly emerging on the market, you only need to keep an eye out. Mammut floor kitchen hoods certainly look impressive, but you may require much more space to accommodate even one of those.
You may not be able to enlarge your kitchen, but you sure can make it seem larger with reflective surfaces. That’s right–gleaming cabinets, countertops and tabletops amplify the light, as shown in the London kitchen below.
