Cre­at­ing a fash­ion­able kitchen

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - NEW YEAR -

IF you aren’t look­ing for a to­tal redo, a jazzy ad­di­tion like a con­tem­po­rary faucet or retro fridge can up­date the space with min­i­mal fuss.

From hand-painted coun­try wall tiles to bold red re­frig­er­a­tors, colours in the kitchen can vary from clas­sic to trendy.

How do you know which colours will out­last trends? Color Mes­sages au­thor and Mean­ings and Pan­tone Color In­sti­tute di­rec­tor Leatrice Eise­man as­so­ci­ates clas­sic colours with el­e­ments of na­ture that we think of as ever-present: rock, stone, peb­bles, mar­ble and gran­ite; which in turn make such colours time­less.

“Neu­trals aren’t the only clas­sic colours. Colours can be rich and in­tense, like terra cotta or bright red, and still be clas­sic,” says Mary Jo Peter­son Inc prin­ci­pal Mary Jo Peter­son who is also a Kitchen & Bath De­sign News colum­nist.

Colours aside, one of the most at­trac­tive pro­pos­als of the lat­est trends is “rounded” fur­ni­ture, or what is known as curvi­lin­ear de­signs, as seen in Bief­bie Cucine’s Timo Plus range.

De­signed by Paolo Passerini, this curvi­lin­ear de­sign breaks away from the con­ven­tional con­cept of de­sign and cre­ates a lib­eral is­land kitchen that has no re­stric­tions in space and­move­ment. Er­gonomic de­sign is the key el­e­ment to the Timo Plus range. Em­pha­sised by the high gloss or matte lac­quered doors with the ab­sence of han­dles, the at­ten­tion is on the con­vex and con­cave lines of the kitchen. Com­ple­ment­ing the sleek door sur­faces are the work­tops rang­ing from brushed steel to mar­ble, gran­ite and quartz with alu­minium pro­files.

A per­fect bal­ance be­tween de­sign and tech­nol­ogy, the clever in­te­gra­tion of un­der­mounted sinks and domino hobs en­sure that ev­ery kitchen el­e­ment is in­ter-con­nected and within the reach of an arm’s length. Sim­ple ro­ta­tions al­low the user to move ef­fort­lessly from the wash­ing zone to the cook­ing zone and the work­ing zone. In ad­di­tion, it cre­ates a fun en­ter­tain­ment space for the whole fam­ily.

Biefbi Cucine has been pro­duc­ing high­qual­ity, stylish kitchens since 1976 in the pur­suit of de­sign and the ap­pli­ca­tion of the best tech­nolo­gies. Biefbi Cucine has al­ways held a con­stant de­sire to im­prove it­self to sat­isfy de­mand­ing cus­tomers, al­ways pay­ing at­ten­tion to mar­ket evo­lu­tion. The brand Biefbi en­sures that the qual­ity of a prod­uct is en­tirely made in Italy, com­bin­ing tech­nol­ogy, de­sign and craft tra­di­tion.

Timo Plus is ex­clu­sively avail­able in Malaysia through the Sig­na­ture net­work.
