A nature-friendly kitchen

     Light, bright colors, large spaces that communicate directly with the nature - this is how we could briefly characterize this kitchen located near the outside garden.

     Natural wood finish is discreet and beautiful, like fibers that we find everywhere in nature. The large, open space is responsible for setting all the furniture, which has created numerous storage spaces and work areas.

     The piece of resistance of this layout is the center kitchen island, the core of the preparation area. But this is not the only work surface; along the wall, the designers have designed another countertop, where we can find the stove and the kitchen sink. The kitchen sinks recommended for this kitchen would be stainless steel sinks, or light color natural stone sinks.

     The electric oven and numerous storage facilities don't occupy any space at all because the designers placed the two big cabinets in the side walls.

French style kitchen

Besides having a functional role, the kitchen is a place where we spend a lot of time. A kitchen can be arranged so beautiful that you'll never want to leave it.

The kitchen in the above picture is part of a "L"-shaped house. On one side is the bedroom and the living area, and on the other side we can find the kitchen with a separate dining space, the bathroom, and a closet.

The kitchen is also the entrance area in the house so, the identity of this area was very important.Through successful choices and inspired joints, the resulting product was a warm decor reminiscent of Paris.

Cooking area
Throughout the entire house, including the kitchen and bathroom, white wood floors are used to give the home elegance. In the same note, the kitchen walls are painted a discreet cream color. Pottery was only used in the cooking space, behind the stove and the kitchen sink. The owners opted for a glossy texture with small rectangular pattern. The granite countertop is an element of resistance, both visual and practical. The best kitchen sinks to go with the french style are the copper sinks and the stainless steel sinks.

The Parisian atmosphere was built from details. The round table with wrought iron top and the armchairs contribute to this atmosphere. Also the lamps with classic white shades, the plants, the thematic paintings and the framed photographs go well with the style. The cabinets are discreet in this setting because of the color white.
