White Kitchen

Because, simply, white kitchens will always be best sellers thanks to their timeless hue. The choice of white cabinetry provides a crisp, smart look for your new modern kitchen or a classic backdrop for a country kitchen. Choosing a white kitchen could be the best decision you’ll ever make.

The usual design rules apply though, particularly where white is concerned. It’s generally acknowledged that a totally white colour scheme can look clinical, reminding us of an operating theatre rather than a warm, welcoming room that is the heart of your house.

Kitchen, dining and living blend into a single environment

Modern open -plan space

The modern kitchen is all about having a great space to cook, eat, socialise, gather as a family and relax. The appeal of the kitchen to be a part of the every day-to-day action has become so great; therefore, the average kitchen project has become so much more than simply upgrading old cabinetry. The kitchen, dining and living merge into a multi functional living space, which becomes a place for social gathering and offers scope for personal style preferences.

multifuncional space

Kitchen and living blend into a single environment where furniture is integrated together. In the living room, minimalist furniture that matches the kitchen helps create a space that transitions smoothly. The rooms are in dialogue through the furniture, geometries and finishes, maintaining their functions.

Shades of black: Kitchen interior trend 2018

Black in furnishing

Use of dark colours in interior design has become extremely successful after being presented during the Milan Design Week 2018. For years Nordic style has been stealing consumer’s hearts and now in combination with a range of dark colours; from intense browns to deep blues, from greys in to the shades of total black it continues to meet designers taste.

Black: complete, fundamental, sophisticated  and elegant. In character with those who love to dare. It is not easy to use, especially in furniture , but if introduced to your interior in correct way it can transform the atmosphere of your room enhancing it with sophistication that darker shades naturally possess.

It is the common perception, that black is associated with darkness: therefore because of its intensity it is often used in accessories or small furniture, often combined with lighter colours that make it appears weaker. It is perhaps the fact that we are afraid it will make our space look smaller and dim.

In fact, when using black wisely it can give your interior a touch of character and sharpness. More popular in industrial and vintage style interior, dark colour can give your space strong identity symbolising power, respect and authority. Perfect in modern interior with minimal furniture, also combined with white colour creates a timeless look.

Aliant-light

Black according to Feng Shui

The Feng Shui is a practice of Chinese and Tibetan origin, very ancient tradition. According to Feng Shui, the harmony of man depends on the balance. It states that the layout of the room and furnishings as well as the colours that dress them, must response to precise rules in order to create a calm environment that maximizes the well-being of those who live there.

Black adds depth to an environment and fills the space with energy: it is therefore suitable for furnishing rooms where the activity is dynamic, such as kitchen which is the centre of the house. It’s not advised to be used in  areas dedicated to relaxation and rest.

What to consider if you want a dark kitchen

One of the most important factors  to keep in mind when planning to use black in the kitchen is BALANCE. It is necessary to evaluate the size and shape of your room as well as lighting as black or in facts any very dark tint can dominate the entire environment.

If the kitchen area is a small space, using dark kitchen furniture will make it cramped, it is therefore advised to use light colour, only adding few black details. If however the kitchen is generous, choosing dark colour will make a great impact on your space and positively impress your guests. Black imply refined and luxurious style, especially when accompanied by lights that define its contours and enhance its depth. The black kitchen with appropriately positioned lights will appear scenographic.

As well as the aesthetic advantages, black kitchen also has other benefits: it needs little maintance, due to dark colours being very resistant and in opaque finish also masks the fingerprints, therefore the kitchen becomes much more functional and easy to clean.

The Aliant kitchen presented by STOSA is a perfect example of a dark kitchen enhanced by light colours. The pantry with opaque black glass doors and the window with brushed black frame doors and semi-transparent grey glass perfectly match the central island in HPL Argilla finish.  What STOSA created is a strong, elegant and extremely functional kitchen.

Aliant

In order to make the dark kitchen less impactful we suggest the trick of using light or bright colours as shown in the Metropolis kitchen. Use of black with combination of Pet Grau and Cool Grey Pet balancing the colour, creating a dynamic composition.

Metropolis

Alternatives to dark kitchens

For those afraid to use black in the kitchen, the shades of grey are a great compromise, they are elegant and at the same time timeless.  STOSA Newport kitchen is a classic- contemporary look that blends two shades of grey; the lighter Girgio Piacenza lacquered finish of the hood wall units and the island, the darker colour Gray Partridge Ash use in base units and frame columns.

Newport

Wide range of STOSA kitchens makes it possible to find your perfect composition, designed for different lifestyles and to meet different tastes and needs. Everyone can find the kitchen that best reflects their character by innovation, functionality, ergonomics and a quality that lasts over time.

The new model of STOSA kitchen soon will be on our display in our Cambridge showroom. Come and see one of kitchen designers if you are planning on upgrading your kitchen. We can advise you on the colour and finish to create your perfect space in time for Christmas celebrations.  Visit our showroom at 132 Newmarket Road, Cambridge, CB5 8HE
