Pendant lighting is an interesting and fun way to add a bit of color in the kitchen. Since most contemporary kitchens prefer a minimalistic and highly ergonomic design, they can at times appear too sterile. A dash of vivid color in the form of exceptional pendant lights that sport an inimitable design can break the monotony. They also offer some flowing curves in a kitchen that otherwise sports only ‘clean and well defined’ lines.
Outside kitchens, like the one below and the pool house kitchen in the cover picture are on the up. While they’ve been growing and have been popular in the United States, other countries have yet to pick up on the trend. Weather is a limiting factor to some degree, but it won’t stop this trend from growing in those harsher climates, such and the United Kingdom and other areas in Europe with questionable weather. In wet, cold and blustery environments, a sliding glass screen would work well to prevent the need for constant cleaning from weathering, while enabling versatility in its use, both in gorgeous and questionable weather conditions.
Whether it’s a chic, contemporary model or a traditional one as pictured below, small, compact corner sinks make an ideal solution for small kitchens. Most kitchens don’t utilize the corer for anything more than a countertop or alliance, so this fresh little number is making a triumphant entrance into kitchen design, with companies like Villeroy and Boch leading the way in off the shelf designer solutions.
A brightly-colored backsplash would stand out with its bold color and an artistic backsplash would impress on a different level. But if you want to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in the kitchen, a brick backsplash is a wonderful idea. The texture and pattern are simple and very popular and a brick backsplash would manage to make the kitchen feel cozy and inviting.
Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar-seating option, adding low-profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.
