The kitchen was designed by , a Romanian startup from Buzau. They helped Oana build her dream kitchen, one that would welcome both real and virtual visitors. This kitchen has 2 of almost everything: 2 sinks, 2 refrigerators(one hidden in the kitchen furniture), 2 stoves, 2 ovens and a spacious kitchen island where Oana cooks her delicious recipes. She only has one kitchen hood, because if she would have mounted a second one, the filming angle would have been compromised. Measuring a total of 64 square meters, the kitchen and adjacent living room are both part of the home and part of the home “office”.
The secret to getting a warm contemporary kitchen is building a foundation of shapes that embodies contemporary style. From there, you can add features — in the form of color or material — that bring warmth to a kitchen. “Achieving a contemporary look that is also warm requires attention to balance, proportion and combinations of finishes, colors, textures that bring the space to life,” says Megan Padilla, senior designer at , in Silver Springs, Maryland. To get started, let’s look at the basic shapes and elements that set the stage.
Cabinets: “The easiest way to make a kitchen contemporary is to have a contemporary cabinet. If you have a slab door, that is a contemporary kitchen,” says Liza Riguerra of in Redwood Shores, California. A slab door or drawer is flat, in one piece, without trims or frills. Often it lays over the cabinet, as in this photo, but sometimes it is set into the cabinet frame (see next photo) in a construction method known as inset. In terms of colors and finishes, these cabinets may be white and glossy, as shown here, or matte and flat, and made from wood or a variety of laminates. Many finishes can work.
You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t have a dream-worthy kitchen remodel in mind. Most of us long for the day when we’ll finally be able to customize our cooking spaces. However, when that day finally arrives, doing so can feel like a Herculean task. There are so many unknowns: How do you even start something like this? Which improvements will appeal to buyers down the road?
