Nowadays, a lot of people are looking for kitchen design ideas.

Even if the living room is the social hub of a home, the majority of time is spent in the kitchen, especially when there’s a party going on, thus, the saying that all good parties end in the kitchen. This fact and not only makes it very important for you to come up with some very good kitchen design ideas. Whatever the budget may be, the results should always make you happy.

 

The designer Rabih Hage, made in his late 19th-century house, a kitchen where some Ingo Maurer gold-leaf ceiling lights hang over the main area. Behind it, you can find a concealed storage wall in grey-spot oak, perfect for all the kitchen paraphernalia. Since there’s a lot of entry due to the fact that the family is quite large, there is a professionally equipped, small space, in the back of the kitchen where food can be cooked away from the family.

Inside Joanna Vestey, a photographer, and her husband’s farmhouse (they form an eco-sensitive couple) the Aga from the kitchen was removed and replaced with a regular size cooker. They explained that they did not wish for something to exhale heat out day and night while they were looking for eco heating systems. This is one of the best kitchen design ideas you could follow.
A black stool, around the kitchen island, from Alfie’s Antique Market, contrasts with a limestone floor and with the white units. Adding a clean look of the room is a lamp placed above the dining table. Old School Electric provides similar lighting and, Alison Berger, a glass artist, produces similar work.

Sophie von Wedkind and Nicholas Spencer designed a London flat where storage room is one of the underlying features. One particular point which came out of the brief was owner’s feeling of hate towards clutter. This thing led to placing the oven within the streamlined, white units.

The translucent orange chairs from La Marie, for Kartell, by Philippe Starck, gives a burst of color to the predominant white kitchen, which also includes ceiling lights. A tall cabinet on the left side conceals the cooker.

Jonathan Tuckey, designer, while on a family ski holiday in 2008 in the Swiss Alps, found a timber paneled chalet. The house is disposed on four levels, where a timber-frame design is placed on a stone base. In order to remodel the top two floors, Jonathan carved out a double-height area to one side of the house. This way, he created an open living space which holds a kitchen with a dining table and a sitting room. Even if everything in the house is new, they designed some other things in order to complement the spirit of the original house. For an example, the original flooring was preserved and restored, creating a house that combines 21st-century comforts but with the character of the 17th century.
