A New Approach to the Kitchen: Tips from Caesarstone’s Design Experts
Our international team has become a veritable trend-setting force when it comes to innovation in kitchen design. Traditional kitchen designs have been challenged by the desire for ergonomic, efficient workstations and kitchen countertops that cater to the diverse needs of various surfaces, without compromising unique design styles and preferences. Here are our top 3 design tips for 2012:
1. HIT THE LIGHTS. Combining the natural, Mediterranean feel of stone or tile floors with the elegance of several suspended lights creates a sense of warmth. A top kitchen design idea sees recessed lighting replaced by various types of lights and chandeliers suspended from the ceiling – often above the centre island or dining area. This lighting trend allows for a more personal touch when it comes to style and design. This trend also enables you to get the most out of your floors and kitchen tops, highlighting their depth of colour, or natural shimmer and shine.
2. NATURE’S BEST. One of the most overwhelmingly popular trends in kitchen design is the use of natural materials and stone to create kitchen surfaces. With high durability and beauty, Caesarstone’s quartz-based surfaces have become an established feature in the kitchen, often replacing stainless steel sinks and creating new areas such as wall cladding and splashbacks (the area between the countertop and the cabinet). A highlight of natural materials is their longevity and diversity, allowing you to custom design elements throughout your kitchen that will last a lifetime.
3. SMART SPACE. Maximizing storage space has always been a priority in the kitchen. New storage trends incorporate dividers and sliding trays into cabinet and storage spaces, bringing space to previously cluttered kitchen areas. From shelf height to cabinet handles, when it comes to storage space, design is in the details. Designing your own, efficient, custom-made structures for your cabinets can increase your kitchen’s functionality, free up precious countertop space and create a more tranquil atmosphere.
