New company Plykea launched a series of birch ply doors and worktops that can be attached to IKEA‘s ‘Metod‘ kitchen cupboards. Digital product designer Tim Diacon wanted a speedy way in which to create a handsome kitchen on a finite budget. Already possessing an IKEA kitchen, Tim searched for a company that could make a set of birch ply fronts. Unsuccessful in his quest, Tim turned to his friend Adam Vergette for help—Adam is a furniture designer and a one-time production worker with Vitsœ. The two men hatched a plan to create an online service that would provide reasonably priced bespoke plywood doors, drawer fronts, worktops and cover panels for IKEA kitchen cabinets: and so Plykea was born.
Finnish company A.S.Helsingö transforms the look and appearance of IKEA‘s Metod and older Faktum kitchen systems. A.S.Helsingö‘s doors and handles are created by Scandinavian designers and Finnish carpenters. They‘re made to order in a small Finnish countryside community, using quality materials and traditional craft methods.
Yes, a large window seat that allows you to lazily catch up on a midday nap does sound great, but not all of us have enough space in the kitchen to spare for such an extravagant addition! For those short on both space and resources, a small window seat with built-in cabinets underneath is the perfect option. Not only does it give you a comfortable resting spot in the kitchen, but also helps you with tucking away additional kitchenware that you normally do not use. It can also be used as a cool homework zone or even a small breakfast nook with the addition of a small table.
While it is easy to add pops of yellow, red or green to a kitchen in white and gray, colorful accents definitely seem like a thing of the past. Instead of color, think of other ways in which you can create contrast without altering the overall appeal of the lovely kitchen draped in neutral hues. Wood is undoubtedly a fine choice as it is both hip and brings a hint of natural effervescence to a contemporary setting dominated by man-made materials. Wooden cabinets and breakfast bars seem to be the popular option here followed by bar stools and floating shelves.
Most often, it is white marble along with lighter tones of wood that seem to find space in the modern rustic or farmhouse kitchens. But those looking for something far more masculine and dashing can try out black marble countertops or dark grained hardwood.
