In our never ending search for quality design ideas, we stumbled upon some amazing ideas about how to integrate a kitchen in a living room. Logos is where we found the “Cooking and Living” project, which unites several unique ideas about interiors that combine the two. The project below was created for a family of four. Eli, Richard and their two kids wanted a special apartment, with spacious rooms, large access to the kitchen and the possibility to keep an eye on the children while having coffee for example. Which is why the designers came up with the perfect blend: a kitchen integrated in a living-room. We hope you will take a look and agree that this is a perfect fit.
New Accessories - Believe it or not, something as simple as adding new accessories can make a huge difference in your kitchen. Just getting new pulls and knobs for cabinets and drawers will add a new look in your kitchen. You can find these pulls and knobs in stone, resin, glass, wood, rubber, and metal. There are also a variety of styles that you can choose from too, so pick accessories that give you a nice modern touch.
Many Kitchen Island Styles. Kitchen Islands have become so popular that this has even led to the creation of unique design styles of their own. A kitchen island can have the same design as the main counter and cabinets or it can have its own unique design.
Use Some Paint - If you want a new kitchen look, one of the best kitchen ideas is to add a few coats of paint. Paint is fairly inexpensive, and you can totally change the look of your kitchen with a bit of paint. Consider painting your kitchen cabinets. You can add some color to your drab kitchen, just by painting your cabinets. When it comes to your kitchen walls, you can get creative with the paint as well for a modern look. Sponging, rag rolling, or even mottling are great painting techniques that will add some texture and class to your kitchen.
According to the National Association of HomeBuilders (NAHB), kitchen islands are one of the most popular kitchen design features among today’s consumers. The NAHB also reports that buyers of new homes have also indicated a desire for kitchen islands as well. Actually some 80% of homebuyers consider a kitchen island to be an absolute must.
The kitchen design ideas listed above are just the tip of the iceberg. We haven’t even touched on cabinet hardware, lighting fixtures, sinks and taps, paint colors or appliances. Matching appliances are ideal in any kitchen. Stainless steel appliances are a favorite because they match just about any kitchen design. Families with small children may wish to consider black appliances since stainless steel shows fingerprints. Put as much thought into the small features as you do the larger ones. Something as simple as buying the wrong cabinet hardware can ruin the look of the completed project.
In today’s post we would like to share one of the company’s latest work, especially developed for a residential project in Woolacombe, North Devon. The Outlook Curved Bespoke Kitchen features an elegant dining table with unconventional seating units integrated in an oval kitchen island. There is plenty of storage space available in the cupboards (including inside the kitchen island/seating combo), most of which is cleverly hidden away from sight. Generously-sized windows allow natural lighting inside, which contributes to an overall warm ambiance. The color palette in white and gray is tastefully disrupted here and there by powerful hues; take the green armchair for example, which adds an interesting traditional vibe, perfectly complemented by the entrance cabinet in matters of style.
When the homeowners began this kitchen remodel process, they were looking to redesign and completely reinvent their “builder grade” kitchen. Nothing was broken necessarily, but they never liked the design and the materials were lackluster. Case Design/Remodeling, Inc. was enlisted to transform the kitchen into the owners’ dream cooking center. The final kitchen features top-of-the-line finishes and appliances including separate refrigerator and freezer units by Sub-Zero, a 48” dual fuel Wolf range with integral grill, a custom stainless/oil-rubbed bronze hood, Bosch dishwasher with custom cabinetry panel, and a Sharp microwave drawer. Additionally, there were a few “his” and “her” requests for the new kitchen. For her, it was important to methodically plan each and every cabinet to include rollout shelving, toekick drawers at the island, and legs that flank the range and include narrow storage, among other items. For him, great appliances were a must-have so he could put his cooking and entertaining skills to use.
