With some creativity and inspiration you have the chance to move away from the all too common kitchen designs. We challenge you to dare to be unique and to share your ideas with us. Here is our top 5.
1. White Kitchen with a Twist
We all love white kitchens, but they are so common nowadays, that it is hard to step out of the line. That until you check the above picture. Suspending the base cabinets is not only stylish, but is is also hygienic. If suspending is an issue, opt for high legs. The old bricks add texture and charm. You can replace them with reclaimed wood or other textured options that should be repeated above the upper cabinets for a balanced look. It is hard to believe that this kitchen is in a tiny apartment in Boston, which has been masterfully renovated by the architect Chris Greenawalt of Bunker Workshop.
2. Walnut and charcoal
This kitchen is strikingly beautiful. Walnut is really trendy, but it is also timeless. Strand Design, Minneapolis, created this complex project in which white walls highlight the wide variety of finishes including clear timber, sandstone, marble, cork, concrete, and steel.
3. Splash of colour
Red creates a love/hate reaction. If you love it, use it to create storage and an intense interest in the kitchen area. If you hate it, simply go for your favourite colour or a subtle hue. The colour scheme of this kitchen allows for infinite variations to replace the red. The grey upper cabinets tone down the intensity of the red, the wood adds warmth and texture, the mid-century chairs bring style. Simply put, everything goes very well together.
4. ”From Seine to the Mediterranean”
I know, the picture is worth a million words. This Barcelona kitchen has been designed for a French couple by Egue y Seta. It pulls together the Spanish creativity and the French charm. It is highly rated on Houzz and very highly rated by us for its beautiful combination of hexagonal tiles and wood floors, old brick wall, cheerful back splash tiles, Eames chairs and great lamps. The Acorn pendant light is a great option for this look.
5. Bold Pattern
This kitchen is simply elegant and sleek. Its black and white bold pattern, combined with the elegant copper from the Clava pendant light is backed by the white and black combination of the kitchen. The wood top is also great. If you favour the Scandinavian style, this is what you are looking for.
