The most noticeable and iconic feature of this new kitchen series is the ‘frame door‘ that combines a dash of Shaker furniture style and traditional kitchen door design with contemporary refinement and minimal modernity. The fusion is simply spectacular as these understated additions give the kitchen an entirely new look and set it apart from other contemporary compositions. Even in a crowd, Carattere is instantly recognizable thanks to this signature feature that is available with two different variants. Whether it is with fixed handles or with grip integrated into the cabinet door, these frame doors definitely make an immediate impact.
Looking for a kitchen that is inviting and yet carries with it a touch of modern minimalism? Marble is undoubtedly the right choice as a countertop material for such sleek kitchen spaces. Whether it is for the island countertop or just the prep and cooking zone, marble gives the modern kitchen a cultured finish even while ensuring that the neutral color scheme is left undisturbed. The natural strains of the stone still manage to create visual interest even as smart cabinet doors and kitchen islands clad in wood complete your dream kitchen.
Adaptive reuse of structures along with smart rear additions for aging homes has meant that the kitchens are increasingly acting as spacious, gathering spots for the entire family which also provide a transition zone between the interior and the outdoors. A large window seat in the corner of the kitchen that overlooks the rear yard or the wooden deck is now a more common sight in contemporary kitchens. From custom wooden window seats to box-style delights that create the illusion of a room within a room, there are plenty of ways in which this can be done. These woodsy wonders sure do bring additional warmth to the already chic kitchen…
The small window seat can also provide a welcome break from the wall of shelves and cabinets in the kitchen, ushering in some much needed contrast. The throw pillows, cushions and fabric of the window seat also bring textural change to a space that is otherwise dominated by wood, tile and metallics. Whether you use it as a after-school hangout for your kids (as you keep an eye on them) or as a wonderful conversation nook, the small window seat in the kitchen comes in mighty handy.
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.
