The kitchen is often an overlooked space when it comes to design. Consumers usually stick to simplistic designs with a focus on functionality. Not that there is anything wrong with that approach. We do however believe that the kitchen is the heart of the home, where families come together to share meals, and friends spend time having a chat while preparing drinks.
The design of your kitchen should never be overlooked, and you should consider making this heartbeat a feature space in terms of design as well as functionality. In this article, we take a closer look at the top 5 kitchen designs of this year.
1. Rustic Kitchen
Wooden kitchens are thought to be part of earlier models in the earlier period of modernity, but this belief is not quite correct. Modernism itself has developed in the form of many older beliefs and methods that were previously used. Re-adapted to include modern aspects, a rustic kitchen takes important functional aspects into consideration, while focusing on the aesthetic. Expect a variety of textures and a combination of styles including a mixture of modernist and traditional style.
2. Modern Kitchen
This wonderful kitchen consists of horizontal beams, marble counters and loads of natural light. A distinctive aspect of the modern kitchen is the absence of clutter, the clean lines and attention to functionality. All the appliances and cabinets are situated in an optimal layout to ensure you are able to cook and host with ease and pride.
3. Contemporary Kitchen
One of the most notable features of a contemporary kitchen is the use of both old and new design aspects. It is a sort of go-between the modern and the traditional, with extra care on accents and splashes of colour, and a sleek modern design to ensure the space is clutter-free and fresh.
4. French Country Kitchen
Think of a villa in the south of France, a cozy kitchen that is inviting with rich fabrics for the upholstery and a variety of textures to feast your eyes upon. A signature of the French country kitchen style is the use of different textures and textiles, old antique touches and distressed look surfaces.
5. Traditional Kitchen
A traditional kitchen is ideal for those who would like to focus on function rather than design. If you envision your kitchen as the hub of your house, where the kids will sit and do homework while you cook, this one is best for you. Envision cupboards with panel or glass doors, some antique touches of wood here and there, and details in antique cupboard knobs round this style off beautifully.
And that is 5 of our favorite kitchen designs and layouts handpicked just for you. Which one is your favorite? Sometimes it is possible to mix things up a bit, for instance, if you like the layout and design of modern, to add some traditional touches or splashes of color to make it your own.
