– The leading color of kitchen furniture will consist of furnishing themselves (or walls if you choose not to leave them white).
– The color co-star is the floor.
– The last but not negligible are the working surfaces.

The choice of colors of  kitchen is very personal.

To simplify the choice even in this case, it may in fact restrict the field between a composition on white, a colored composition or a composition in which will prevail natural tones.

1. In the first case, the choice will be based on aesthetic qualities such as the sophistication and minimalism. Not everything has to obviously be white, but other colors can be introduced through some very brief details: the floor, in the frames and the edges of the floor tiles, in the coating, and also accessories such as carpets, curtains and tablecloths, etc.

2. If the choosen palette is colored, whatever is the combination of colors you will have a stimulating and very modern solution.

– In contrast, warm, dark or bright, in conjunction with maximum contrast can be useful to restrict the space, lower the ceiling, shorten a room too long.

The color of the kitchen furnishings is important

1) Red: ideal if we have a strong and determined character. It’s a good color to heat the rooms a little cold, although we recommend to adopt it only for details or surfaces not extensive.

2) Yellow: warm and primary color, perfect for the kitchen, but can also be adapted to areas exposed to the low light as it has the ability to make environments brighter.

3) Orange: it is the perfect color for the kitchen as it stimulates the appetite, and is welcoming. The advice is to break it with aluminum accessories to have a technological effect or wrought iron to create a romantic ambiance.

4) Blue: a very elegant color that always likes. Some nuances in blue can have a relaxing and calming effect. The darker color instead has the effect of restricting environments and therefore may be used for the kitchen very spacious.

5) Green: definitely the color that encourages focus and concentration, you should be chosen if you have an unconventional character.

December 20, 2012

The chairs for the kitchen must be practical, of course comfortable, space-saving, in some cases necessarily folding: so the seats complets tables and counters.

Comfort and durability are the features that you need to pay attention to when you choose the chairs.

For those intended for the kitchen should be given priority to lightness and maneuverability. Better prefer washable materials, without forgetting that the wood can be cleaned easily. To match them to the table must take account of the dimensions: between the height of the sitting and that of the plane are about 25-30 cm, even if we talk about stools.

It’s good to orientate always on models without armrests, which are easier to move. They are also thin and space-saving.

Trends

With the exception of  kitchens in style, where a table and chairs are often coordinated, usually the sittings for this room have metal frame with back in plastic, although there are models entirely in wood or upholstered with leather.

You can fold it up and put it back

The possibility of closing it does not affect the comfort of the chair. Indeed, in many cases, these models have the contoured seat and backrest curved designed to ensure the most correct position. Folded, have a thickness that does not exceed 10 centimeters. And, in general, weighing less than 3 kilograms.

Chairs  made of wood

The chairs typically have seat upholstered in fabric. Should be coordinated at the table but they can be comfortable with a table in glass.

For the finishing of wood are often used water-based paints. Non-toxic, are without solvents because composed of acrylic that can be emulsified in water. Their use is specified on the card accompanying the product.

Whatever choice you make, it is important that the kitchen chairs are comfortable, and if you have a space large enough you do not have to pay any attention to size of chairs, but keep in mind to buy things with a style.

Kitchen: ideas and solutions

December 9, 2012

Wood and glass to divide

The modern kitchen is separated from the living area by a sliding glass door and a fixed panel of the same material. These are separated by a double-functioning element.

Kitchen at all light

The kitchen furniture, arranged in form of letter L is willing to have gloss lacquered beige doors, while the roofs are frosted glass. The wooden floor is cut at 45 ° from ceramic gray tiles gray in corespondency with the working area.

Techno elements

In the past almost exclusively used in professional kitchens, stainless steel is now the protagonist in the compositions of contemporary taste and hi-tech. Hygienic and resistant to impact and corrosion, is offered in various finishes – smooth, striped, satin or brushed – even combined with each other.

A highly strength material

Stainless steel is marked by different acronyms depending on the percentages of chromium and nickel in the alloy. For the kitchen is used steel 18/10 “austenitic” characterized by a particular composition and marked with the letters Aisi 304. This material has high mechanical strength and corrosion resistance and is suitable for contact with food. Lends itself to molding deep, that is, to the realization of elements of complex shapes. For durability, the steel requires a careful maintenance. Daily cleaning should be done with neutral detergent or with soap and water, and do not need to use steel wool or abrasive products.
If the steel is not dried well,it forms streaks and patches of limestone. In some cases, the material may be subjected to painting treatments, which forms a protective film and do not allow to leave traces on working areas.

Contemporary tradition

Suitable for rustic or a tavern, fully kitchen wood is warm and welcoming. Is one with the dining area, which is ideally separated from the counter used as a work surface. The furniture can be completed by the iron candlestick, from tools and pots and pans hanging on the copper grids compartment. And it is designed for moments of conviviality, for example, for wine tasting with friends.

Showcases and cabinets

The furniture of the kitchen are arranged in a U so as to maximize the space. The composition is equipped on both sides with base and wall units with glass doors. The module is flush with the sink under the window, but the valve does not impede the opening because the frame has glass sliding doors.

With free-standing modules

It is inspired by the professional models, steel kitchen consists entirely of free-standing modules. Two container elements next to each other form a single work bench. The objects of everyday use are left exposed in order to have everything near you when you need it.

We were particularly impressed with how well is furnished one house in South Carolina. Is a house on the beach, which simplifies and highlights the principles that we are dealing with and that we appreciate. The house as a whole is eclectic and very original, focuses on staff. Is made on the basis of many different styles and different eras together, that gives it a touch of freshness.

4) An ambient that is decorated can be more interesting if you add pieces from different periods.

The furnishings seem more dynamic and modern if you combine it with pieces from other periods.. In the picture above, a shag carpet live comfortably with an antique clock. At the bottom, the transparent chairs by Philippe Starck are above fashion when combined with a rustic table. So we think that this could be a great tip if you want to have well decorated and unique interiors.

5) It’s better to have an own idea

It’s great ig you have an idea that makes sense in its generality and complexity, it is best not to follow fads and fashions or even better to know them and try to sort out their fashion and style, creating an interior design that brings with it the idea of ​​his own trend.

6) The art will mainly be a part of your home

Investing in art will give the interior a personality of those who live in and the most original style. It will increase by far the trend of the moment. Make sure that is your passion for art to dictate the choices of furniture.

During this period, it can be too easy to fall into the trap of the trend. But having time and devoting time to furnishings, will help you to analyze your own choices while remaining faithful to your own personality. Personal style will be able to stand the test of time and fashion.
