Classic glamour and minimalism in kitchen furniture
The kitchen is the heart of any home and it’s clear that it’s the kitchen furniture that has the greatest impact on the rest of the interior. Kitchen design determines the dynamics of a home, how many guests can be entertained and each detail can drastically change the mood of a kitchen. In this article, we will focus on one detail in particular – design. More specifically, a design that is the result of a fusion of classic and modern trends.
Elegant classics in a modern twist – understated, tasteful and pleasant. This is how this design vision could be described, which is why it has become so popular recently. When minimalism is starting to look old-fashioned but the classics can seem too old-fashioned, this modern classic style is just in time to refresh your latest project. It’s a style you can’t go wrong with, it takes the best of both worlds – clean, fluid design that manages to incorporate a homely feel.
What are the key elements for designing a kitchen in a modern classic style?
Neutral tones and clean, fluid lines
One of the most distinctive common denominators between classic and modern minimal styles is a palette of neutral tones. White, grey, beige and light brown – these are the modern classics. The light, neutral tones will keep the kitchen from looking oppressive and maintain a feeling of spaciousness. The lighter colours of the facades will also bring out the contours of the kitchen more clearly, so it’s important to think about how fluid the kitchen design is. The lighter shades will reveal it all!
Natural lighting and other solutions
Natural light is important in every kitchen, but it is especially important in a classic kitchen. Natural light will make the kitchen more attractive, but understandably the kitchen is used at dark times of the day, so it is advisable to integrate cosy, elegant and warm luminaires.
In addition, the light tones mentioned above are so emphasised as to maximise the use of existing natural light, thus reducing the need for artificial lighting solutions.
Hidden storage solutions
Minimalist and other contemporary modern styles make great use of a variety of clever storage solutions to keep that clean, flowing feel to kitchen furniture. In this case, storage solutions are what will make the classic kitchen more modern, by reducing the proportion of open shelving, for example, but incorporating a variety of solutions from our partners, such as Vauth-Sagel or Blum.
