First we had the small under-counter wine refrigerators that were all the rage. Since then, wine storage as become more sophisticated — and much more attractive. Rather than just an appliance hidden under the counter, wine lovers can now display their favorite vintages in an attractive system that becomes an integral part of the design.
Here, BlueStar has created a spectacularly eye-catching design that is meant to evoke the Pacific Northwest with its red oven units and rich green cabinetry. Combined with chic copper-colored hardware and a dramatic, riveted hood, the colorful combination is classy and definitely not cheesy. It is a kitchen design idea that is warm and homey — perfect for a fun family space.
You can’t have a kitchen without a skin, but that doesn’t mean you are limited to porcelain or stainless steel. It’s a far wider field of options these days and many are exceptionally modern and stylish, like this one from Scavolini. Actually, the material here is a textured porcelain surface that is easy care, and does not resemble traditional porcelain in the least.
For a modern space, this concrete island is a marvelous kitchen design idea because it features drawers for storage, a sink with low profile hardware, and an induction cooktop that is integrated into the surface of the island. It’s a sleek look that has a bit of an industrial edge thanks to the material. It is a versatile kitchen idea that could be incorporated into an existing design.
