The word ‘Qi’ in Japanese means a white container or storage unit. It is barely a surprise then that the kitchen is filled with white, bowl-styled storage units and closed wooden cabinets, which tuck away all the kitchenware and appliances. The entire kitchen here seems like a monolithic unit with one area flowing into the next. Even the dashing island at the heart of the kitchen plays into the overall thematic and diverse compositions ranging from the classic, L-shaped corner kitchen to the open, contemporary kitchen fit into this minimal design schematic. Qi is a great kitchen for the small urban home where one needs to find greater visual space. Providing versatile organizational solutions and space-savvy storage units, this sophisticated kitchen is definitely for those who love minimalism at its cultured best. Of course, you can always add warmer, more inviting layers to it with both décor and accessories!
Most modern homes simply do not have enough space for a walk-in pantry and in most cases; homeowners simply do not need so much of storage space anyway. A cabinet pantry takes up a lot less space and offers you lot more centralized storage room. This means you have all you need just an arm’s length away and unlike in case of the walk-in pantry, it is not a constant trip up the ladder to find something on the top shelf. Sure, there is the added expense of turning one of your kitchen shelves into a pantry, but accommodating one into your existing kitchen does help immensely. Since we are dealing with space-savvy pantry ideas, it is important to remember that the traditional walk-in pantry or the cabinet pantry in the kitchen are not the only options. Sometimes that forgotten nook under the stairway next to the kitchen, an unused mudroom cabinet next to kitchen or the laundry room storage nook can also act as a cool pantry. Just think about customizing the space, adding exactly the shelves you need (think beyond just shelves and turn to baskets or even bar carts) and the right lighting can turn a boring niche into a fabulous pantry.
There are few colors as versatile as blue and even in a world where gray seems to be taking over, blue still stands tall as a perpetually popular choice among homeowners. The biggest reason for this is how it fits in with a wide variety of themes ranging from minimal, contemporary and Scandinavian to rustic, coastal and Mediterranean. It is the finish of the kitchen island, material of choice and the shade of blue that combine to create the right island for your stylish kitchen. Increasingly white marble countertops are the surfaces of choice in most kitchens and these work beautifully when combined with an island in blue. Islands in darker shades of blue steal the spotlight in traditional and coastal kitchens while those clad in lighter, chic bluish-gray shades feel at home in modern and refined spaces. Combine these with kitchen cabinets in white and you have a dashing, cheerful kitchen.
You are always looking for ways in which you can enliven the kitchen by bringing something new and fashionable. Even though some trends tend to fade away pretty quickly and might not be worth all the effort and time, others tend to stand the test of time and serve you well for year, even decades at times! The geo trend definitely seems to be heading towards the latter as it continues to hold its own in the decorating world. Both homeowners and interior designers are looking for brand new ways in which they can add geo panache to the modern home. The hexagonal tile in the kitchen is undoubtedly a great starting point! Hexagonal tiles obviously come in a wide range of hues and also can be used to usher in pattern without breaking the color scheme of your contemporary kitchen. Whether you wish to do this by turning to a delightful, tiled backsplash or wish to do so using floor tiles, adding the silhouette of the six-sided polygon definitely makes a big impact.
