SieMatic Kitchens have raised a very good proposition with this kitchen design; why choose one type of cabinet for the entire kitchen? All other rooms in a home are filled with coordinating pieces of differing styles, textures and colors to reach your desired effect, so why not in the kitchen? See the glossy ebony walnut of the fridge/ pantry, the matte lacquered finish of the lower cabinets, and then the polished chrome framed uppers. This kitchen is from their Beau Arts line.
Wren Kitchens seem to have a lot of things most of my clients want ticked off their kitchen lists; clean lines, gorgeous colour choices, and efficient designs. In this kitchen above, the long horizontal lines of the open shelving, and large drawers with tubular pulls are simple and elegant, it is a kitchen that accentuates a pretty modern lifestyle.
Three is the go to number in interior design, so it comes as no surprise that this gorgeous well appointed kitchen designed by Susan Fredman Design Group has 3 stone topped islands, and coffered ceiling inserts. This space could be used for so much, I find myself staring and imagining the cocktail parties, Christmas cookie stations, and just every day living that would take place in this extraordinary kitchen.
I love the simplicity of this Carrara topped island. The little details on the antiqued cast steel legs give this island a french feel. An open concept bottom is nice too, for either easy to spot goods or you could set a stool on either side and allow for leg room since the supports run near the middle. Since marble has a wonderful heat conductivity, it is often seen in bakeries for quick cooling, and the natural veining is gorgeous. Just watch the wine glass, since marble is porous too!
Small appliances are a fantastic way to add a shock of colour or add primary direction for a kitchen palette. Incorporate a fun colour in your kitchen cabinetry as a painted back bead-board like in this kitchen, or through small appliances like the Kitchenaid stand mixer- it is available in 27 colours like pistachio or persimmon.
