Work­top Funk

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

The work­top is also get­ting an up­grade this year, with the trend lean­ing to­wards a more stream­lined, ra­zor thin, and edgy pro­file. There is also a very pro­nounced de­par­ture away from bright and re­flec­tive sur­face ma­te­ri­als like stain­less steel and pol­ished gran­ite; in­stead, duller and more de­mure ma­te­ri­als reigned supreme with dull mar­bles, matte lac­quer, and wired brushed me­tal head­ing the trend.

There is also a big play on coun­ter­top ex­ten­sions; cer­tainly not a new con­cept, but one that is see­ing slight evo­lu­tion. There is a dis­tinct move away from static or per­ma­nent pieces, to mod­u­lar blocks and seg­ments that can be moved and re­con­fig­ured to meet dy­namic needs while tak­ing up less space. These pieces are also fin­ished in con­trast­ing tex­tures in re­la­tion to the main work­top, and this can help to trans­form them into great ac­cent pieces that el­e­vate the over­all look.
