THE WONDERS OF LUXE CONTEMPORARY KITCHENS
Contemporary kitchens are a good fit for many homes. Whether you live in a trendy loft apartment or a period property, a striking contemporary kitchen creates the ‘wow’ factor and is an instant talking point when you invite family and friends over.
For this post we are focusing on one of the latest designs to come out of the Baystone In-frame range. Inherently classic by design, this shaker style in-frame has been flipped on its head and has been given a contemporary twist.
KITCHEN DESIGN FOR A TOWNHOUSE CONVERSION
This contemporary twist is induced largely by the inclusion of the Baystone kitchen in Stone Blue, within a magnificent townhouse conversion. The colour scheme feels edgy and luxe at the same time, incorporating a real mix of styles across limited wall space.
The modern lantern skylight, critall-style doors and windows added an industrial edge to the space, whilst tongue and groove panelling introduced a traditional twist to the design and made the doors really jump out.
KITCHEN ISLAND IS THE ANCHOR
The kitchen island is the perfect anchor for this minimalist kitchen. On the front side, slab drawers are paired with square end posts and then neatly finished off with a chamfered moulded plinth. On the opposite side, stylish shaker doors are incorporated beneath the sink, with a built-in oak chopping board set to the right-hand side.
EXTRA KITCHEN STORAGE
Storage is always high on the priority list when it comes to kitchen design. A set of three-panelled larder doors are incorporated in this particular set-up, to house a spacious pantry with solid oak drawers, brushed satin brass handles and butler’s door racks.
Adjacent to the dining area, a dresser unit has been added to provide additional space for tableware and drinkware. The open shelving is a nice finish that allows for the introduction of more decorative accessories and homely touches.
LUXE AND CONTEMPORARY COLOUR SCHEME
The finishing touches can make or break a kitchen, or any room in the house for that matter. Coloured doors are extremely popular right now and this kitchen embraces the trend fully with a clean, crisp and contemporary Stone Blue colour scheme. Alternative soft and pastel type colours will work equally as well too – like grey or pastel green. It’s okay to go with a brighter and bolder colour, such as red or orange, but too much vibrancy can over-do it and create a cluttered image. To maintain a contemporary look and feel, like the one offered by this wonderful townhouse conversion, it’s best to stick to your cooler and lighter shades of paint.
