While thinking of food preparation, you must consider some main appliances. For example, will you need an extra sink and if so, make sure that is at least nine inches deep to prevent splashing. The versatile nature of the unit allows you to introduce a cooktop with vent hood overhead or flexible butcher block if needed. Also, one often overlooked detail is whether or not you would like to have accessible outlets on your island – it is essential if you are using the space for food prep – blenders, mixers, etcetera devices will be grateful if you think about that matter in advance.
This season Minacciolo is introducing Minà – a novel, bold rust finish for kitchen design. Imaginative recall of the vintage appearance in Italian tradition this unusual material selection offers highly textured reddish-brown rust effect that has retro yet decidedly contemporary feel. The multi-purpose Minà Island has a special treatment that gives a unique aged look and also provides an appealing texture. Artistic custom made knobs and details add to the vintage charm of the assembly. The tall cabinets are reminiscent of ice-boxes from the early decades of the 1900-s, and the warm reddish highlights introduce cozy nuance to the premises.
The other tendency this season are the opposite design methods – using high-tech innovations of materials and surfaces the designers create large and massive volumes with shining surfaces and simple shapes. Here we can also observe the presence of wooden elements, but in those cases, they are used more as additions and artistic details not as a leading material selection. Dark colors and contrast are also eminent. The kitchen designs by Mina and bulthaup are a wonderful representation of this trend.
Skylights can be an answer to both the storage and lighting problem. By throwing light downwards and outwards, the need for small windows is reduced, freeing up valuable vertical wall space which can then be used for high-rise cupboards. With a galley kitchen, consider installing French windows opening out on to your garden. If you lay a deck right outside the exit you can leave the windows open during the summer, increasing the feeling of space by making a garden room.
