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.
Custom cabinetry with unique finishes and material combinations have opened a new realm of creative possibilities for homeowners. From high-gloss lacquers to cool matte colors and mesmerizing grain patterns, the sky's the limit in terms of specialty options.
Mixing metals is a great way to add visual interest, particularly in a kitchen. When you mix metals, like bronze and brass, you are creating depth. This works so well in a kitchen because you have the opportunity to use different finishes in your plumbing, hardware, and lighting. A matte finish combined with a shiny one creates a great balance. Strive for a coordinated look rather than a matchy-matchy one and the end result will be far more interesting than selecting the same finish throughout.
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.
