KITCHEN DESIGN

GREY COLOR KITCHEN

Often used in bedroom design, the soft appeal of grey can cool many interiors. Yet one secret power remains – its subtle transformation of kitchens. Often left in the cold for warmer wooden tones, its ability to make a kitchen look fresh and contemporary works wonders for a range of home styles. Whether blending into white, creating the industrial or making smooth moves in charcoal, its range and depth of hue rival many traditional kitchen colours. Paired with brighter yellows and tonal blue gradients, it offers a clean palette without the drama of white or black.

ISLAND IDEA

As the heart of the modern kitchen, the island revs up the room’s function factor with extra storage space, work surfaces and as a cooking station. Perhaps, one of the most important roles that many islands play is that of gathering place. Family and friends love to hang out in the kitchen, and the island offers the perfect place to do just that. Today’s hardworking, multi-tasking kitchen island designs can be found in every style from charming country to sleek modern providing a myriad of varying functions to each space.

Generally speaking, there are six types of kitchen layouts: The One Wall, Galley, L-shaped, U-shaped, Island and Peninsula. There are no strict positions in which to order the stove, fridge or sink, and a kitchen can be combinations of one or more of the typical layouts. For example, you could have an L-shaped kitchen with an island or a peninsula, or a galley kitchen that is linked at one end. In designing a functional kitchen, the kitchen work triangle should be considered, which means that the distance between the sink, stove and fridge should be no more than 1200mm apart. Though, the concept of the kitchen working triangle is now evolving further to take into account multiple cooks, as well as new gadgets and appliances.Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
