The kitchen is the one room in the house where the family can meet for meals, cook together, help each other with homework or emails or just to relax with a steaming cup of herbal tea before bed.
This is why it is important that it is functional and equipped with all sorts of practical appliances. Yet, it should also be a comfortable and welcoming space where each family member can feel at ease and enjoy the pleasure of company from family and friends.
This is why we've put together 10 fantastic kitchen projects today, which will inspire and delight. We hope that by looking through them, you'll find some designs perfect for a family feast.
Let's take a look!
Wood is one of the best materials for a kitchen, because it helps to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. If you are concerned with too much wood stifling the environment, you can introduce wood in the form of a few select furniture pieces or simply the cabinets and drawers.
As we can see in this design, wood introduces a slightly rustic touch ensuring that the kitchen remains the heart of the home.
If we have children, we know that the kitchen can be an environment fraught with danger – sharp angles, appliances, electrical outlets, detergents, to name just a few.
To prevent accidents, opt for a simple and minimalist style like we see in this design. The linear composition allows you to maintain a neat and tidy atmosphere, while allowing freedom of movement.
If we want an elegant environment without sacrificing functionality, we should take inspiration from this project. Here we come across a modern and spacious kitchen where wood is mixed with more contemporary materials such as steel, glass and laminate. This creates a very chic and sophisticated environment.
The kitchen island in the middle of the room is the cherry on top, creating the perfect area for relaxing and coming together.
