Likened to a snowball gathering momentum, natural tones and materials is big across all interior design hemispheres, including kitchens. Brick veneer (or even brick if possible), adds a rustic one with nature feel, and if done right, will look terrific for time to come. We’ll see current kitchens being ripped apart to expose old natural beams, which look fantastic with stain or beeswax.
Poured concrete counters offer strength, style and are seemingly timeless in appearance. They offer a natural, organic look for those who are wanting such in their kitchens. These counters need to be sealed well, perhaps more than once, to prevent staining. Poured concrete can be tinted to be any color you wish. If sealed it is stain resistant and can be cast and poured into any shape you desire. Its appearance improved with age, as opposed to many others that start to look weathered and dingy after just a few short years. While concrete is heat resistant the sealer is not and hot pots and pans should not be placed directly on top of the concrete. Likewise, cutting boards should be used as well as chopping directly on to the concrete could damage the sealant. Concrete, requires just a little bit of maintenance and is a very desirable option at a very desirable price.
Wondering what to put at the center of it all? Deciding on a centerpiece for the dining room table can be a bit daunting… How do pick a scene stealer for a piece of furniture, or in some cases, an entire room? Believe it or not, the more we investigated this very question, the more it became clear that sometimes less is more.
