Kitchen / July 1, 2018 / Emile Georgette.
We recommend going with solid wood, in-frame doors for a quality finish. You then have the option of leaving the wood in its natural colour (with a varnish or wax finish), or splashing on a fresh coat of paint in the appropriate colour (just remember our tips from number one).
As a kitchen is a working zone, you don’t want the extra dining/living space to meddle in with your cooking and baking activities. Think about where guests will be seated while you busy yourself with food prepping – will there be space for a breakfast bar, keeping family and friends close yet still out of your way? Will you move your living room’s chairs and sofas to ensure an easy flow of conversation between seating- and cooking spaces.
The time of islands, peninsulas and breakfasts bars is far from over, considering that these surfaces (and their appropriate seating) will continue to ride the trend wave in 2018. It’s all about functionality and practicality. We don’t just mean lessening your carbon footprint, but literally adding greens into your kitchen for 2018. And don’t think you can escape with just a boring little potted plant in the corner.
Take the chairs, for example. In modern kitchens, the dining chairs will be identical, yet the country style is completely comfortable with different chairs surrounding the table. This also counts for cabinet handles and hardware – different ones will ensure some charm and give it a carefree and effortless look. Let this train of thought spill on over to other areas of the kitchen, like the lighting fixtures and décor.
