Some details of kitchen design seem all too obvious and get our attention instantly. Then there are features that we consider add-ons and yet make a big difference to our kitchen both in terms of aesthetics and ergonomics. The pantry is undoubtedly one such space. Most of us go about planning for a pantry without much thought. It is only after you have lived with one for a few weeks do you realize that this storage space requires as much attention to detail and functionality as rest of the kitchen. From providing a space to stock food in those ultra-chilly winter days when you might get snowed in to keeping the kitchen organized a pantry does it all! Space is often the biggest constraint when homeowners start planning for a pantry. But even in the most congested and tiny home, there is always a nook that can be turned into the pantry. Sometimes it sits right there in the kitchen and on other occasions we need to look elsewhere to find some precious shelf space. But with a hint of ingenuity and right planning, you can design an efficient pantry that serves most of your needs.
Hexagonal tiles need not be always plain and simple. Patchwork hexagonal tiles might be a touch hard to find and also a bit more expensive than their regular counterparts, but they are well worth the extra cash you splurge. It is best to pick tiles that are monochromatic and do not delve beyond white and shades of gray. Since there is already plenty of pattern, color can disturb the modern appeal of your kitchen and also can give it a muddled look. These hexagonal tiles with pattern are perfect for modern eclectic, shabby chic and industrial kitchens. Looking for a kitchen that is truly minimal at its heart? Your search surely ends with the simply stunning Qi designed by Nendo for Scavolini! A modern masterpiece that imbibes the traditional, minimal dynamics of Japanese design, this state-of-the-art kitchen is all about doing away with mess and creating a polished and functional kitchen that is perfect for the contemporary home. Straight lines, a clean finish and curated wooden surfaces ensure that the Qi is both inviting and refined at the same time – a task that is hard to pull off at the best of times.
Bored with the simple and the mundane? Chalkboard doors for the pantry surely help in moving away from the usual and deliver a striking focal point in the modern kitchen. Chalkboard doors offer much more than a dark, visually unique surface in the kitchen. They also are a practical choice and let you chalk down everything from ‘to-do’ lists to a quick message to a family member coming home from work. It essentially becomes the communication center of your kitchen on busy weekdays and those blessed with artistic skills (or have little ones around) can also use it as a lovely, blank canvas! 2017 is undoubtedly a year when design and decorating world has taken turn towards natural materials and interiors that are more nature-centric. With that in mind, it makes plenty of sense to add a dash of wooden warmth to your contemporary kitchen. Breaking the monotony of polished and pristine finishes in the kitchen, a pantry with wooden shelves or even a sliding barn door offers welcome change. The sliding barn door also saves precious space when compared to traditional doors that swing open. And if you are just looking for ways to give your old pantry a woodsy upgrade then custom wooden boxes and shelves are a smart alternative to consider.
Your kitchen floor sees plenty of traffic and in a home with kids and pets, spills, dirt and a few slightly chipped spots are all too common. Maintaining your kitchen floor can be an absolute challenge at times and the more polished it is, harder it becomes. In such a scenario, concrete offers us a welcome alternative. Concrete floors offer a multitude of advantages both functionally and aesthetically. And the best part is that concrete floors are no longer considered ‘sterile’ or cold. Thanks to a spurt in industrial style kitchens and greater interest in cost-effective interiors, concrete has now become a trendy choice!
