KITCHENS & BATH­ROOMS RE­PORT

GO WITH THE FLOW

Simply You - - Front Page -

Once the un­sung hero, where meal prep may­hem went on be­hind the scenes, the kitchen is now ev­ery bit the star, a place to show­case – and linger. Your taste may be ‘mod­ern fu­sion’, as above, where com­fort­able din­ing meets sleek kitchen de­sign with a nod to tra­di­tion in the de­tail­ing. Or you may pre­fer a ‘lean cui­sine’ aes­thetic, where min­i­mal fuss al­lows qual­ity ma­te­ri­als to take cen­tre stage. As for your pal­ette, dark tones or a chic mono­chrome are pli­able enough to al­ways be con­tem­po­rary. Pair with rich stone for state­ment benches or splash­backs and soften it up with light touches of green­ery. If you fancy some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent, earthy kitchens with tonal wooden notes glide eas­ily be­tween deca­dent and down-to-earth.
