perfect mix of functionality and aesthetics. But who says you cannot have both? Below is a list of four timeless kitchen trends that can elevate your kitchen’s look and feel and provide maximum utility for your every need.
Your storage cabinets and the backsplash receive the most visibility in your kitchen. For a modern and elegant vibe for your storage space, we recommend lacquered glass shutters.
The coat of lacquer provides the glass with an opaque and shiny finish that will have your friends and family eyeing it with awe. It is also dust, humidity, and corrosion resistant, making it a super durable material for kitchen finishes.
Coming to backsplashes, a lacquered glass backsplash is easy to clean and maintain that also awards good looks. Besides that, another great advantage of having a lacquered glass backsplash is that it makes your kitchen appear spacious. The high-gloss finish reflects the lights in your kitchen, making your space appear vibrant and bright.
Professional planners came up with the kitchen triangle look years ago, but it continues to dominate kitchen interior planning because of its effectiveness.
The kitchen triangle rule dictates that the three main working areas of your kitchen — sink, refrigerator, and stove — need to form a triangle loosely. This rule was designed to ensure that the cook can move optimally and conveniently between the different working areas.
This design layout provides excellent utility and is a rule of thumb to help you plan out your kitchen layout without difficulty. We highly recommend implementing this layout in your kitchen. Besides that, this triangle formulation also looks coherent, organized and elevates your kitchen’s aesthetic appeal.
Most professional chefs swear by this design trend, and it has gained incredible popularity in recent times.
Firstly, glass cooktops have a smooth surface, making them super easy to clean. All you need is a wet cotton cloth, and a single wipe down will have them as good as new. Secondly, the properties of glass make it an even conductor of heat, which means it will evenly distribute the stove’s heat to your cooking utensil.
These cooktops are ideal for stirring sauces or caramelizing ingredients since they reduce the chances of overheating and burning your dish. Glass cooktops are also crack-resistant, so no worries about cooking on high heat.
The lighting can make or break the aesthetic of your kitchen, so spend some time picking the right lighting for your space. Yellow hues are an excellent lighting choice for lacquered glass fixtures.
Pick dome-shaped or flush mount lights and fix them high up. The higher the lights, the better the illumination. If you have a small- or medium-sized kitchen, this is especially useful since it opens up the space.
Besides artificial lighting, we recommend having some big and airy windows to let enough natural light filter in and better ventilation in the kitchen. If you want enough light minus the unbearable heat, explore Saint-Gobain’s energy-efficient window range(Sun Ban), which effectively blocks excess heat.
These were our select four long-lasting trends that can help improve your kitchen design and elevate its aesthetic. For more ideas and inspiration, head over to Saint-Gobain’s gallery.
