When it comes to contemporary kitchen designs, there isn’t a better place to look than Italy. Italian designers and manufacturers look to envision completely different yet functional kitchen furniture. Minimal kitchen storage units with in-built technology may be the latest trend in kitchen design, but it’s not the only one.
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.
Pull and replace – This type of remodel is pretty much what its name promises. Your designer will replace everything that currently lies in your kitchen with newer stuff and that includes cabinets, countertops, appliances and a lot more. Remember that in this form, you will still use the same floor plan, but it will be just a new look to the old kitchen template already in place.
The beauty of adding wooden surfaces to the modern kitchen goes beyond mere textural contrast. It allows you to blend two different styles and add a hint of rustic, farmhouse, traditional or even industrial panache to the stylish, contemporary kitchen. While wood does a great job of lending that natural, rustic appeal, marble acts as a balancing element by elevating the ‘sophistication’ of the kitchen with its polished finish.
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.
Most often, it is white marble along with lighter tones of wood that seem to find space in the modern rustic or farmhouse kitchens. But those looking for something far more masculine and dashing can try out black marble countertops or dark grained hardwood.
