If you are a home chef who prefers the natural comfort of wood-clad joinery over the cold (and oft clinical) appearance of minimalist fittings, this article is for you. Take a look at these 5 kitchens that will hopefully inspire warmth in your own cooking space with their earthy, but no less stylish designs.
1. Tiled-in style
Instead of conventional tiles, the entire backsplash of this 4-room BTO unit’s kitchen was constructed using patterned European tiles that inject a hefty dose of colour and personality. Meanwhile, quartz counters and stainless steel appliances complete the industrial theme, in addition to imbuing the space with essential functionality.
2. Maximised potential
A clean galley layout maximises both sides of the kitchen by filling it with an abundance of storage options. Meanwhile, the choice of black quartz for the countertops serves as the perfect colour complement to the cooking zone’s cabinets and drawers, which make use of dark reddish-brown wooden laminates.
3. White and bright
Best described as clean and efficient, the wet section of the kitchen comes equipped with a series of handle-less, pure-white cabinetry for a streamlined look. In contrast, the dry zone possesses a pair of dedicated storage niches for an oven and microwave, as well as multipurpose cabinets of different sizes that are framed in warm wood laminates.
4. Multi-textured rusticity
Dealing with a darker colour scheme can be tricky, but this kitchen pulls it off perfectly with a combination of grey cement screed walls and weathered cabinetry. To give it a cool retro touch, the cooking space was also equipped with a pair of wooden sliding doors featuring wired glass panels.
5. Bring back the dark
Gently lit by covelights installed beneath acrylic panels, a quiet elegance can be found in the contrast between the dark wood panels of the kitchen’s cabinetry and white Caesarstone quartz countertop.
