The description 'contemporary interiors', is often quoted today, it conjures up the vision of white walls, concrete floors, often cold and austere. Contemporary Design cannot, and should not be defined by any set of rules. It simple is a term that describes an interior or form of architecture that is not 'traditional'.
This Kitchen from one of our projects is contemporary in design, but with classic overtones.
Finishes are the stand out feature, the use of veneers, the contrasting white cabinet work, stone bench tops, glazed subway tiles, walk in pantry and the use of quality Gaggenau Appliances, make this kitchen not only very stylish, but also very practical. The 3 meter Island Bench made from a slab of marble, which is 70mm thick, not only looks good, but is a perfect workspace. With a large overhang it can comfortably accommodate bar stools as well. The contrasting veneers, of toasted walnut, and zebra wood, used in the floating shelves next to the oven tower is striking.
Lighting is provided in the room, via energy efficient LED overhead lights, and the decorative retro industrial light above the island bench. Concealed lighting above the cooktop, provides practical, as well as decorative lighting at the same time.
A truly functional space, but at the same time, one that is timeless and elegant, but very much contemporary. The heart of the house, where meals are prepared, and people gather, what could be better than that.
