There is also a plenty of choice when it comes to the counter-top material. You can pick from Calacatta and Statuary marble, various wood finishes and even quartz depending on the usage of the kitchen station and the island. Traditional kitchens are all about attention to detail; from the cabinets and the sink to the dining stools and the windows!
The last few years have seen contemporary kitchens move away from the sleek and shiny towards a more ‘fusion look’ that combines modern comfort with classic aesthetics and inviting warmth. This is a trend that you can also see with the many gorgeous kitchens on display at this year’s Salone del Mobile. Following this path with timeless Italian craftsmanship, ingenious modularity and the natural elegance of wood is Heritage from Snaidero. Part of the new series of kitchens unveiled by the company at Milan 2016, this exquisite kitchen is another Iosa Ghini masterpiece that charms you almost instantly.
We did talk about the minimalist appeal and the space-savvy design of contemporary fireplaces, and the three kitchens below showcase this aspect in a truly mesmerizing fashion. The first kitchen in white utilizes the fireplace as a sculptural focal point that wows you instantly and gives the kitchen a fiery, dynamic backdrop. The second contemporary kitchen clad in marble turns the cool fireplace with a Calacatta marble surround into a feature that binds together the cozy conversation zone. And even if you want to usher in a hint of rustic magic into the contemporary kitchen, the sleek fireplace fits in elegantly!
There are plenty of ways that you can craft a striking copper backsplash that gives your kitchen loads of individuality and a striking metallic glint. Copper penny tiles are definitely our favorite among them all, as they not only bring the goodness of copper along with them, but also provide geo style and a sense of uniqueness. Small hexagonal copper tiles also offer similar perks, while larger square and rectangular pieces offer a more conventional look. In the modern kitchen, you can pick from a range of copper finishes that vary from hammered tiles to salvaged copper sheets and those with a cool, oxidized finish.
It is not just the classic kitchen that looks good with the giant fireplace and its aged brick surround. Sleek, contemporary fireplaces have found their way into every room of the house and the outdoors! Giving you an aesthetic and energy-efficient way to add a fireplace to pretty much any kitchen, irrespective of its style and size, today’s fireplace is both versatile and adaptable.
