In an earlier post, I presented 5 kitchen designs. The designs were posted as I consider the best idea for my kitchen project. Yes, my bathroom is in order, modern and very convenient. That took a bit of time as I have to oversee every detail. The conservatory project is almost done and so I believe it’s time to move on to the kitchen. I am mulling over these types of kitchen:
1. Rustic Kitchen Theme
My idea of coziness and warmth is distinctly felt whenever I see a lot of timber in a certain area of a room. My kitchen would be a combination of wood, vintage appliances, a fireplace perhaps and a marble countertop for a touch of contemporary design. It would most likely look the picture below.
Storage is important in every household but how they are presented is equally vital. I prefer wood of course with a rough hewn look to complement my rustic theme. But I am caught between polished, smooth finish to a distressed look. I wouldn’t want my kitchen to be seen as out of a log cabin design. It should be more rustic cum modern. What do you think of this cabinet? Is it too polished for my idea of a rustic theme?
I also like open storage as the content could be part of the decor of the kitchen. Open shelves must definitely added. Look at the photo below, the colorful bottles add to the essence of the kitchen. And the wares displayed on the other photo is a sight to behold. The antique shelf would balance the marble countertop and a modern sink.
3. Vintage Appliances
I would definitely put in appliances similar to these polished copper pots and pans plus this stove. Age-old, functional and definitely rustic.
A fireplace for me not only adds to a relaxing ambiance but in the kitchen, it could be multi- functional as a stone oven or merely to add heat during the cold season. Much thought have been done as to whether I would add one as the maintenance could take much time. The function and need exceeds the disadvantage I suppose when I saw this design. With a few modification, it would be perfect for my kitchen.
5. Modern metal sink
That’s much about my kitchen design with a unique combination of old and new. Convenience and functionality are first and foremost in my standards but design and aesthetic are very essential as well. What do you think?
