Total opening

We continue with open kitchens and took it to the end to maximize integration, not only with the other rooms, but with the landscape. This Mediterranean house Minka Houses blends with the environment of the island of Formentera attention to detail. The kitchen combines warm colors reminiscent of land with neatness white, symbol of cleanliness and elegance. The whole house is on one level projected low altitude to have the minimum impact on the environment, so the kitchen avoids the high shelves and built at the same level, creating an open and zen visual effect.

For this minimalist distribution, small details make the difference. A good example are the white lights hanging from the island countertop, breaking the linear equilibrium of the house and creating an aesthetic and practical visual contrast.

The industrial touch

The industrial style also has its place in modern kitchens. This example of GUD, has a clean, modern and design office brings a touch of elegance to a contemporary apartment. This open kitchen serves to dress an entire wall of the diaphanous lounge area. Smeg recessed appliances integrate seamlessly into the kitchen furniture and the combination of metallic shades with wooden floors offers a game of contrasts that leaves no one indifferent.

It also works well to introduce natural elements or ensure that the kitchen is open to outdoor spaces that bring light and openness to stay.
