When it comes to the design of modern kitchen furniture simplicity is the catchword. No elaborate chairs or tables or lacy cushions for a contemporary kitchen. Instead you find contrasting colours, straight lines and simple shapes. Even the decorating items are very less in such a kitchen. Similarly, there is only a single colour for the walls and a single contrasting colour for all the furniture.
It is now a place where people converse, kids spend their quality time with parents, couple experiments with cooking, families watch television, people work or chat online, etc. This therefore invites a corresponding change in the furniture too. Modern kitchen furniture is thus a lot different from furniture used in the conventional kitchen.
On the other hand we can scrutinise the austerity of solid wood kitchen furniture and see that it is cheaper to buy than the new retro styles and provides better value for money. Bespoke kitchen furniture can be both extravagant and austere depending on what the customer wants. If we associate austerity with lack lustre looks and minimal quality and design then we are looking at cheap kitchen furniture, however in modern design we can have a combination of plain looks with top end materials and fully integrated equipment with all the mod cons. Many associate extravagance with what is beyond the normal requirements in any kitchen. There is a way however of achieving this apparent dichotomy. By installing individually chosen kitchen units you can design and create your own bespoke kitchen furniture being as extravagant or as austere as you wish. This method achieves a mixture of both extremes and can be very effective in providing kitchen furniture that bridges the divide between extravagance and austerity.
Kitchen islands can also be considered in the class of furniture because many people use the island to double as a breakfast bar. If you have the opportunity to design your island, then try to get the counter top to extend out farther than the cabinet underneath so the counter is comfortable to sit at. In addition, try to have the outer edge of the counter sit higher than the rest of the island surface. This is to make sure that there is no cross contamination between prepared and unprepared foods. The seating at a breakfast bar will most likely be stools. Stools with backs are more comfortable, but heavier so you need to weigh those options before selecting. Another helpful hint is to make sure there is enough room between the top of the stool seat and the bottom of the counter so that people are not squished in between.
