The kitchen is an odd room. It’s a space originally designed for cooking but, with time, it has also become a social space where friends and families spend time together, where they chat while someone is making dinner or where they simply gather to socialize. But a kitchen needs to be, first of all, functional. It’s a space where style comes second but, nevertheless, doesn’t have to be ignored. It’s a space where everything has to be perfectly balanced.
Gone are the days when the kitchen was filled with just polished plastic surfaces and design that was typical of the 90’s ‘cubicle’ trend. Modern kitchens are once again going down the classic route and textural contrast is back in style, big time! With that mind, designers are turning towards both wood and natural stone to provide the necessary contrast even while keeping the ergonomics refined and cutting-edge. Apart from the warmth of wood, it is the exquisite elegance of marble that seems to be the preferred choice as cutting-edge kitchen compositions are being selectively draped in marble.
Let’s be honest…Sometimes there’s just not room to keep everything behind closed doors! If you have limited cabinet space, you will find that it is quickly filled. Try using the walls for extra storage. The kitchen below makes use of wall-mounted pot, knife and spice racks!
