Kitchen cultivar Part 2

Kitchen cultivar Part 2

Tip:

Have fun with bright and retro appliances –like those from Smeg and De Longhi’s Icona vintage collection – that would work well in a kitchen like this.

 

Green Peace

This kitchen in a home in Finland, fitted out by renowned Finnish textile company Marimekko, is typically Scandi and, surprisingly, the sea-green cabinetry together with plywood wall cladding of the surrounding interior envelope creates a neutral base for any other colour accents. If you want to inject colour into your kitchen as a focal point, then target the cabinets. Make sure you go for paint that is suited to the specific surface and that can handle lots of moisture, such as Plascon’s Velvaglo range in Monsoon Lagoon (G5-E1-1) or Emerald Shimmer (G5-1-1), which is ideally suited for wood surfaces in areas with lots of steam like a kitchen.

Traditional Gem

At first glance, the Gioconda Kitchen by Italian kitchen manufacturer Snaidero Cucine seems quite classic in terms of its aesthetic – no sleek or handle-free cabinetry here. However, there are some remarkable hidden details that update its traditional aesthetic, like the built-in hood that has been incorporated into the design of the back counter, which includes the hob and minimalist shelving. Another element that stands out is the integrated ambient lighting, which seems to float over the kitchen island. Province Lighting has a team of specialists primed for consultation on lighting design to suit any kitchen space. Currently a big trend in kitchen design is bling, whether in the form of copper pendant lights or piping or even metal-clad cabinets. The effect is one of luxury; in this kitchen it’s the feature wall made up of golden shimmering tiles that brings in a luxurious element. Italian glass mosaic-tile brand Bisazza, available at Kenzan Tiles, is spot on if you want to achieve this look. Snaidero Kitchens has a showroom in Hyde Park, Johannesburg.

‘Wow factor or flashy materials can create insanely gorgeous interiors. Done incorrectly, however, use of these types of materials can very easily deteriorate into tacky bling’ – Andy de Klerk

 

Modular Methods

Launched earlier this year, Ikea’s Metod Kitchen is not only compact, but its clever design that stands off the floor allows easy cleaning of typically hard-to-reach places. Known to be the most ergonomic and space-friendly kitchen in Ikea’s range. We also love the light timber cabinets, which work well against dark interior walls painted in Plascon’s Velvaglo in Artist Charcoal (P4-E1-1). Traditional black mosaic glass tiles with white grouting provide a touch of sophistication and complete the look. CTM has a host of different mosaic tiles to choose from. Ikea products are available to order locally through Nevada Furniture.
