If you actually think about it for a moment, the fabulous kitchen fireplace is neither an idea that is amazingly innovative, nor is it something that we have just stumbled upon. Gathering around the fire is undoubtedly as old as human civilization itself, and while the ‘fireplaces’ have changed and evolved, our urge for a sizzling hot focal point that offers heat and light has not. Adding a fireplace to the kitchen brings with it an air of luxury and style that is unparalleled. It can sometimes make use of that lonely corner in the kitchen and can bring the backdrop alive on other occasions.
Hands down, the largest issues were work space and storage. We doubled up on islands, creating one for eating and one for storage. Adding floor-to-ceiling cabinets added extra storage space as well.
While there are other cool kitchen styles, we have limited ourselves today to those that fit in with the design scheme of most contemporary homes. So, if you are upset about the omission of the likes of rustic and cottage kitchen styles, then do not fret too much. That is fabulous collection reserved for another day down the line!
Large metallic pendant lights, giant wooden tables and open cabinets that showcase the glassware are all an integral part of this style. Obviously some of the more brilliant designers have successfully managed to create a fusion between the industrial and the minimal or even the Scandinavian themes! But if you are just getting started, then it is best to stick to the simple basics.
The perfect farm-style kitchen and the classic hearth are pretty much inseparable, and it is the cozy hearth that sits at the heart of this beautiful and timeless kitchen. Undoubtedly, it is the farmhouse kitchen that seems the most ‘at home’ when coupled with a beautiful fireplace that has a stone or brick surround. Modern farmhouse kitchens tend to combine the practicality of modern design, shelving and kitchen appliances with this traditional appeal to offer the best of both worlds.
