At Pulp Design Studios, we’ve been designing kitchens for our clients with two kitchen islands that are spacious, full of purposeful storage, and great for entertaining.
The brick ceiling is evocative of a countryside French farmhouse and pairs so well with the wide plank French Oak flooring. We are seeing a resurgence in the modern farmhouse aesthetic and this is a beautiful representation of that trend. The warmth of the brick ceiling, wood floor and islands pair so well with the crisp white finish of the kitchen.
Smaller spaces are being opened up to incorporate broader entertainment functions. Often we are removing walls between kitchen and dining rooms and including an open island or peninsula to connect the two. This enables us to expand the size and functionality of kitchen and dining areas and allows these spaces to serve several purposes.
Mixed materials and finishes on everything from cabinets to hardware and fixtures has become popular as well as cabinetry with open shelving and even sliding doors. Appliances in a variety of colors are also trending.
