Island kitchen: 6 tips to obtain a timeless effect

Do you dream of having a beautifully practical island in your new kitchen?

Do you dream of having a beautifully practical island in your new kitchen??

Without doubt, the best place to start is by gauging the amount of space available. This is because the island must leave enough room for people to move easily around it; homeowners should also evaluate exactly what its intended purpose is - an island can serve as an operational working top with cooking and washing facilities, or it can simply be somewhere for chopping, peeling and spending time with guests or family. Today we would like to show you a stunning project created in France by our partner Cuisines Deco (Designer - Donato Cuoio) where two vital aspects of an island solution - its modern soul and functional beauty - are brilliantly set off.

1. HANDLEFREE DELIVERS A STYLISHLY SLEEK LOOK 

The main advantage here is a strikingly sharp and pristine aesthetic: integrated into the door, the handle vanishes from sight, forming a clean continuous line on the surface areas, both for the base units and cupboards.

2. BLACK & WHITE - AN ENDURING CLASSIC

Black and white works well in the kitchen too. Not only is it practical, it also has a purity about it, and, being capable of elevating a room and giving it a personal touch without pomposity, it is equally suitable for wide open areas and small spaces. The contrast of dark and light also brings out the essential minimalist beauty of contemporary kitchens and, with a clever use of shadows and juxtaposition of the various elements, this colour scheme exalts geometrical designs to perfection.

3. BETWEEN TWO SPACES: THE ISLAND AS A BRIDGE

Set in the middle of the room, an island acts as a partition between two areas serving different purposes. On the one side, the main part of the kitchen with its working zone and storage cupboards; on the other side, an eating zone for which the island is an essential surface to place dishes ready for consumption.

4. HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL

From a design viewpoint, the technical concept behind Way offers extraordinary flexibility in terms of composition: in this instance, we opted for cupboards with a vertical grip ledge which made good usage of the space above. Conversely, a horizontal grip-ledge design was preferred for the base units.

5. WORKTOP IN A SCENE-STEALING GRANITE

In this case, the choice fell on a black granite for the worktop. Granite is an extremely resistant stone: unsurprisingly, therefore, it is ranked second on the Mohs scale – which measures the hardness of all types of materials – just behind diamond. But most of all, granite embodies Nature itself - each worktop is unique and different.

6. RANGE HOOD BUILT INTO THE COUNTERTOP

Dedicated to homelovers who seek functional solutions that do not interfere with aesthetics: for this project, aspiration takes place from a pull-up unit which completely disappears into the countertop when not in use. Kitchen steam and odours are effectively eliminated at source - an ideal solution for island and open-space kitchens.
