5 Kitchens that would redefine the typical
Kitchen is the metaphorical heart of any home – it is a place where meals are made, eaten and enjoyed, a place of bonding and carrying out of the most authentic functionalities of everyday life. Therefore, while designing a kitchen, its architectural planning comes even foremost to the interior design, though both of them are kind of mutually exclusive in the end. A successful small scale home kitchen design includes parsing out the right amount of space for the right kind of activities and knowing how to respect the functional pragmatism of the kitchen space. Next comes the part where we do have a lot of options – including a server’s kitchen or not, allocating a percentage of space to the decorative master’s kitchen or not, opening up a section for a kitchen bar or not, or using an open kitchen system or not. These are all aspects that need to be thought out in detail before starting on the interior detailing of the kitchen space. With that, there comes a lot of options with the style of cabinetry, materials, countertop finishes, backsplashes and more. There are a lot of choices to be made, in the light of which we will be looking at a few exceptional kitchen designs today.
A classic open kitchen formation, this one uses a beautiful color and material palate to amalgamate itself with the spatial construction of its surrounding ambiance. The bar stools and counter are key features of both the living and kitchen area, making them dual purposed and decorative at the same time.
2. Semi Open
This kitchen follows a semi-open floor plan with an added bonus of transparency. The style is borderline vintage, and the material palate leans towards quaint, if not simple. The overall effect is quite charming at best, and casual at worst.
Having an adjoining formal dining are to a kitchen has always been a trend of sorts, and this interior manifests itself by taking it up a notch and combing it a la apartment style with an open kitchen formation. The juxtaposition of light and dark schemes create an alluring effect that is complementary and contradictory at the same time.
An oblique take on the architectural formation of a kitchen, this design is not only bold but also forward. The laminates and media wall veneer create a matching effect that creates a harmony within the context of the overall ambiance and design.
5. Chrome and Gloss
High gloss has always been a market favorite when it comes to interior designing of a modern kitchen, and this one is no exception. However, pairing that up with contemporary stainless steel cladding and enacting an element of transparency via full glass wall was an ingenious take on this kitchen’s design.
