Here is one magnificent contemporary example of the two-toned kitchen design – the saffron yellow of the comfy kitchen islands (with a horizontal bar that allows the guest to be included in the food preparation proses) is in beautiful juxtaposition with the muted grays of the concrete base of the composition. As we mentioned the Deep-blue will be a hot trend and in this composition by Fala Atelier the Portuguese architecture studio it is cool how they had transformed an old house in Porto into contemporary and trendy home – with a strong colorful presence of the kitchen cabinetry and appliances in characteristic color.
There is a constant battle for storage over style and vice versa in kitchens. Designers have tried to address this by coming up with ideas which utilise every space available. The addition of under-cupboard plinth storage and ceiling-high cupboards helps enormously with storage, so take full advantage of every design trick on offer. Even large kitchens need all the storage space they can cram in. Large kitchens often double up as dining areas, so consider using a kitchen island as it offers a work surface, storage space and dining area in one.
One of the greatest functional benefits of the island unit is that it will greatly expand your kitchen storage space. The kitchen island being a piece of furniture itself can include a wide range of cabinet, drawers, shelves and attachments. You can introduce wine chillers and warming drawers, end shelves or a separated shelving unit, generally there are no borders to your imagination when it comes to increase the efficiency of the island. Have creative fun!
Think carefully about colour. A dark colour and dark units may close a small kitchen down, but will add immense drama to a larger kitchen. Dark colours are great for evening dining and entertaining, but if you are trying to maximise light it will be swallowed up by gloomy shades. Gloss cupboard doors are really popular at the moment, and they do add a real sense of chic and prestige to your kitchen. Think about textures and finishes at the same time as you consider light to make the best use of what you have. By keeping tall cabinets the same colour you can add a sense of height to a kitchen with a low ceiling. Using white wall cabinets on the walls and more brightly coloured base units gives a sense of space too. Another favourite trick that designers use is installing units which are on legs, giving the illusion of more floor space. Add a shiny floor surface and the effect is increased.
