When a white kitchen with an island becomes a functional element of a youthful two-room apartment

When a white kitchen with an island becomes a functional element of a youthful two-room apartment

In the centre of Milan, a youthful flat is spread over two levels, welcoming a white kitchen with a functional island in the centre. On the upper floor, the elegance of total white is accompanied by a niche wardrobe with mirrored doors that amplify the perception of the sleeping area. Functional elements with linear and elegant aesthetics define the style of the entire flat.

A white central island dominates the kitchen area

Upon entering the flat, with its small but practical dimensions, the view is projected onto the kitchen, the layout of which makes full use of the available height with storage compartments. Acting as a visual filter, but at the same time as a functional element for the cooking area, is the central island that echoes the white aesthetics of the kitchen.

The worktop, in matt white Corian , becomes not only a work surface, but also a convenient snack top for aperitifs and quick meals.
In this respect, the folding closing mechanism plays a key role, allowing the (future) service stools to be concealed.
The front closure panels, in fact, rotate sideways to then be incorporated into the main structure and almost completely disappear.

The volume of the island consists of front-extension doors with internal drawers of different heights.
A solution that has now become predominant in the recently concluded edition of the Salone del Mobile, as well as clearly recognisable in previous editions.
The main advantage is certainly the more elegant and minimal aesthetics, in which horizontal cuts resulting from the division into drawers are eliminated in favour of a single door.

From the wall unit to the laundry corner: functionality marries total white aesthetics

The adjoining wall unit is made up of multi-level volumetric plays.
The service columns, incorporating the built-in refrigerator on one side and the combi-oven to its right, are accompanied by compartments with hinged doors running the full length of the kitchen.
On the same depth level, matt lacquered doors with a dishwasher in the central area and internal shelves in the surrounding compartments.

The central area, on the other hand, is characterized by a hollow section with worktop and sink, upper wall units with vertical subdivision and incorporated lighting with a more contained depth.

To ensure the best functional configuration, the side wall to the kitchen and central island accommodates a white lacquered door that covers the entire height of the room.
This conceals inside the laundry area with a washing machine and tumble dryer with columns accompanied by practical shelves for cleaning products.

The linear aesthetics are emphasised both in the choice of lighting, pendant above the white central island and LED strip lighting in the back wall of the kitchen, and also in the joining chain between the Corian top and doors below.
The material detachment through the aluminium profile becomes a horizontal reading element both for the back wall, joining the two side ends, and embracing the central island with kitchenette.

A wardrobe with mirrored doors embellishes the sleeping area

A six-door wardrobe with mirrored doors dominates the upper floor, accessible via a white painted spiral staircase.
The rhythmic vertical division is interrupted by a single horizontal cut at the top, creating an interesting geometric subdivision in the overall aesthetics. The choice of mirror-covered doors amplifies the brightness and perception of the room on the one hand and enhances the overall aesthetics at the same time.

The division into six doors is reflected internally in a symmetrical composition with double central compartments accompanied by two single compartments at the ends.
Compartments with hanging tubes are favoured, but there are also internal drawers and adjustable shelves for better organisation of clothing.

If for the lower level the kitchen with central island favours a uniform white aesthetic, the sleeping area marries contrasting aesthetics.
The bright exterior of the mirrored doors is in fact contrasted by the elegance of a matt black whole on which the elegant chrome hanging tubes can be seen.

The choice of a total white kitchen is always a contemporary and elegant solution. Its simplicity makes it easily adaptable to the surrounding context, whether it has a retro feel, as in this example, or contemporary pop, as in this realisation. It can also be combined with natural wood elements, such as chopping boards and snack tops, thus adding a hint of warmth, here’s an example! Or exploit plays of opacity and shine through different materials, making the room look fresh and bright, perfect for seaside homes!

Gray furniture for a masculine apartment

Gray furniture for a masculine apartment

Furniture in shades of gray is spread over the two levels of this modern apartment with a masculine imprint.
From the bookcase on the ground floor to the walk-in closet in the sleeping area, the furnishings are developed in an elegant and delicate way.
The dark-colored wood chosen for the parquet flooring matches the slate tiles that embrace the kitchen and bathroom areas from the internal staircase.

THE LIVING AREA MEETS THE ELEGANCE OF GREY FURNITURE

In a newly built residential context, this two-level apartment stands out in which the masculine imprint is elegantly softened by the choice of monochromatic furnishings.
The floors show character in the combination of smoked oak parquet and slate-effect tiles.
The floor is therefore dark, which is chromatically balanced by the walls that are tinged with white and the light furnishings that lighten and brighten the environment.

The lighting of the ground floor is combined with steps on the side of the staircase, these mark a luminous rhythm and accompany the upper floor.
To embrace the living area, a full-height bookcase combines anthracite gray backs with light gray shelves in the same shade as the surrounding furniture.
The anthracite gray that we find here in the lacquered shoulders can be replaced by black iron, as for example in this apartment with the same masculine soul.

Neutral tones thus become the protagonists of a story that narrates elegance and freshness.
Here are some other examples of furnishings in neutral colors.
The sofa is a darker gray and moved by velvety fabric, which is positioned laterally at the entrance and hides a lateral extension to allow maximum comfort.
Behind it, the stair handrail in anthracite gray painted metal matches the vertical shoulders of the bookcase positioned right in front.

THE RECOVERED KITCHEN

The bioethanol fireplace, housed in an open plasterboard structure, acts as a fusion element between the living area and the kitchen.
This, recovered from the previous house, is characterized by powder and wood tones and is combined with a rustic table with light aluminum chairs.
The wood of the kitchen and of the table, which are a lighter tone than the floor of the living area, recall it on a material level and create continuity between the two areas.

THE BATHROOMS IN ANTHRACITE GRAY

Accessing the service bathroom, full-height matt white bilaminate cabinets act as a storage room organized into shelves, hangers and drawers.
This light-colored anteroom creates a nice contrast and a clear break with the bathroom characterized by dark tones.

In fact, the anthracite tiles rise on the sides remaining at a height of 120cm and is combined with a bathroom cabinet in the same shade with a matte black back lacquered top.
Particularly the chosen sink, in transparent glass, which seems to disappear and get lost between the tiles and the top.

The second master bathroom, located on the upper floor, amplifies its masculine nature by completely covering the tiles in anthracite gray up to the ceiling beam.
The bathroom is very dark but the large skylight on the ceiling perfectly illuminates the room from above.
Here too there is a bathroom cabinet in shades, with the top in glossy back lacquered rather than opaque, which goes well with the reflections of the Globo ceramic sink.

FROM THE GRAY FURNITURE ON THE LOWER FLOOR TO THE BLACK AND WHITE CONTRASTS IN THE BEDROOM: A WALK-IN WARDROBE IN THE BEDROOM

If the lower floor is embellished with furniture in neutral shades of gray, the sleeping area is characterized by a more subdued contrast.
The recurring theme of anthracite gray is still found in the small study corner, through a desk with a metal structure and a medium gray linoleum top.
Here are some other examples of Smartworking corners where the working sphere is combined with a domestic environment.

Behind this, a walk-in closet develops at an angle creating a limited but at the same time functional environment.
Inside the walk-in closet the hangers alternate in height while in the center a central chest of drawers with upper shelves remains available for all the folded items.
On the side facing the bed, a small niche remains at the service and serves as an open bedside table useful for supporting small objects.

Cream furniture for elegant interiors

Cream furniture for elegant interiors

The elegant interiors of this apartment are recognized by the cream color of the furniture, declined in the different rooms with elegance and modernity.
The combination of materials with different finishes and nature creates plays of opacity and reflection.
Among these, the contemporary style kitchen is recognized by the natural top, the lacquered doors and the wall units covered in Lacobel.
In the sleeping area, on the other hand, the master bathroom and the service bathroom can be recognized by the chromatic and material combinations between the tops and the structure of the shaped furniture.

The beige natural stone worktop set the chromatic and material choice of this contemporary style kitchen.
Maintaining the neutral tones of the cream color, the base units and side service columns in matt tone-on-tone lacquer accompany the wall units covered in white Lacobel.
The recessed LED lighting is inserted inside the latter to provide support light for the preparation of meals.
The material choice of white Lacobel, capable of giving brightness and freshness to the room, is also reflected in the riser that accompanies the natural stone top.

Functional elements such as the removable basket to take advantage of the corner, large drawers and doors with removable trays make the use of this kitchen even more practical.
The full-height side columns, housing the built-in refrigerator and the oven, leave ample space that can be used as a pantry.

On the opposite side, beyond the sink with two steel basins under the counter, the shaping of the base and wall units closes the kitchen block.
It is precisely the smoothed profile of his comparison that softens the design lines of this kitchen.

A table with an anthracite-colored metal structure and chairs in eco-leather in the same shade echoes the material choice of the kitchen top.

The entrance area: between functionality and elegance

In the entrance area, a large service wardrobe acts as a functional element capable of optimizing space, while disappearing from view thanks to its linear aesthetic.
The stylistic choice takes up the cream-colored furniture of the remaining rooms of the house.
The full-height doors in matt lacquered MDF accommodate approximately half the height of the recessed handles shaped at the ends.

Internally, height-adjustable shelves provide useful space for the storage of household products, but also linen and kits for the change of season.
In the central doors, on the other hand, a hanging system exploits the horizontality in order to contain the depth of the wardrobe.

Compared to traditional hangers hung on tubular, this system consists of hooks that slide horizontally on a double row of tubulars, taking advantage of the available length. On the other hand, they have a slightly lower quality of maintenance of the garments. Not having the typical support structure for the shoulders of garments possessed by hangers, it is an optimal solution for coats and jackets that can be considered “in transit”.
As they do not require long-term accommodation, they are ideal for hosting guests’ coats and jackets or light clothing in temporary placement.

The master bathroom: elegant and with attention to detail

Introducing the sleeping area is a large bathroom also for guests with a glass shower and shaped furniture.
The latter is recognized by the choice of neutral tones and light colors. The shaped top in white Corian allows to host a pair of integrated washbasins in the same material, becoming a continuous element.

The composition of the piece of furniture consists of a pair of side doors with recessed handles shaped at 45 ° which are recessed with respect to the block of drawers and built-in washing machine next to it.
The stylistic line of this furniture guarantees a linear and elegant reading of the same, while not giving up the practicality of doors and drawers to contain products and bathroom linen. Accompanying the bathroom cabinet is a large mirror with integrated lighting.

The sleeping area between the service bathroom and compact but roomy walk-in closet

Adjacent to the master bedroom there is the service bathroom with a smaller-sized crystal shower. Also in this case, the service furniture is shaped to respond not only to functional needs but also to restore an elegant and characterizing image of the furniture. The black marble top houses a countertop washbasin and is shaped in the terminal part, softening its shapes. In the lower part, an open compartment adjacent to the wall becomes a support element to avoid floor stand or wall towel holder. Side by side, a pair of drawers provide useful space for small products, while leaving space for the bulk of the siphon and the pipes behind them. Finally, respecting the shape of the top, a curved door accommodates internal shelves. Accompanying the bathroom cabinet, providing additional space for the storage of products, is a wall unit covered in mirror. The aesthetics of this element responds to a division into three compartments whose conformation is light and soft to the eye. The division into three doors also allows you to take advantage of the central mirror part, inserting external light bulbs that give character and embellish the furniture. Sideways mirrored doors alternate with open compartments in white lacquered MDF, visually moving the aesthetic impact of the furniture.

Next to the service bathroom, the small-sized walk-in closet guarantees excellent capacity by making the most of the space with lacquered MDF shelves and fixed tubular hangers. The development of the components occupies the three walls adjacent to the entrance, also taking advantage of the corner arrangement to place the hanging garments on double height. Also in this case, the chromatic choice of the elements takes up the cream color of the furniture placed in the remaining rooms.

The contemporary style: the world of furniture nowadays

The contemporary style: the world of furniture nowadays

The simplicity and elegance of the contemporary style furniture conquers the tastes of customers with its light and minimal lines. From the play of reflection and opacity to the choice of highly resistant materials, to the eye for the environment and eco-sustainable choices.
Trends in recent years in the world of interior design have a well-defined direction, albeit in constant change.

What does it mean by contemporary style furniture?

Terms such as “fashions” and “trends” are now also commonly used for the interior design sector.
It happens more and more frequently to hear about interiors in a modern style, meaning interiors with linear aesthetics, elegant and natural materials.
However, it is important to be careful not to confuse the modern style, characterized by rigorous interiors common since the 1950s, with the contemporary style.

The latter is in fact a constantly changing style, its definition changes from year to year depending on the materials, colors and design lines spread.It would be impossible, for now, to give a series of universal guidelines that can continuously identify this style. All the more so if the trend of recent years consists in a recovery of the modern style reinterpreted in a contemporary key.

So let’s analyze the contemporary style furniture that has spread in recent years, with a particular focus on current trends.

High resistance materials for kitchen tops, plays of light and reflections and furnishings between sinuous shapes and iron details.

Colors and materials

Over the last few years, the trends in colors and materials for furniture have developed along different paths.
On the one hand, soft colors and natural materials emphasize an elegance that is increasingly closer to scandinavian taste. On the other hand, touches of gritty colors and a choice of avantgarde materials appears in order to guarantee excellent resistance and refined aesthetics.

If the attention to the ecological impact has certainly an increasingly topical response, it should be emphasized, however, that it is this second trend that characterizes domestic interiors. all the more so if the choice of avantgarde materials is accompanied by experimentation on new materials produced with recycled components and with a low environmental impact.
An example of this are the fabrics produced by Ikea and presented during the last Digital Design Week 2021, made with recycled fibers from old jeans and the new kitchen tops with a percentage of recycled cellulose.

Here then is that at the constant of neutral colors appear more decisive tones that vary from a light pale pink to a delicate sage green. Up to more gritty colors that in the current years have varied from mustard to teal, in widespread use throughout 2020, ending with terracotta that has every intention of invading domestic interiors during 2021.

The kitchen as a focal room of the living area

The changes in social and individual life brought about by the pandemic have also led to a different perception of the domestic environment.
The introduction of the smartworking concept has increasingly marked the demand from customers to provide angles for remote work within their homes.

Similarly, the kitchen, which has always played a fundamental role in domestic interiors, has rediscovered its centrality even more.
The passion for cooking, also underlined by the world of communication with programs and tv-shows focused on this theme, requires an ever-greater attention to the materials, aesthetics and functionality of this environment.
Here then is that the coverings of doors and drawers are equipped with increasingly sophisticated laminates.

The strength of these materials lies in the great resistance capacity and good maintenance, flanked by an increasingly refined aesthetic line. This is the case of fenix, a material appreciated for its absolute opacity which is accompanied by a softness to the touch.

As for the kitchen countertops, the principle of high resistance and excellent ductility translates into the choice of recomposed materials and innovative agglomerates. Here then is the choice of tops in Dekton and Neolith, and then move on to cheaper options such as Okite and laminated HPL.

Contemporary style furniture: 2021 trends

Already during the last Digital Design Week the new trend of contemporary design is clearly identified: the recovery and reinterpretation of the Modern Style.

For the living world this translates into the choice of sofas with sinuous shapes that emphasize important padding, accentuated by the choice of velvets.
From the immense corner sofas to which we have become accustomed in the past years, we have now moved on to more compact conformations.
Two- or three-seater sofas accompanied in case by matching armchairs or chaise longue and dormouse. The latter are in fact back in vogue, made contemporary by dynamic and fluid design lines.

On the floor, colorful carpets appear, with geometric patterns that increasingly come closer to the world of art, and shaped shapes with an eccentric inspiration. A masterful example is certainly the cc tapis production, also present in the contemporary interiors of this work between soft pink and pure white.

In the sleeping area, on the other hand, the beds increasingly equipped with a trunk structure are enriched with padded headboards, most of them with capitonné aesthetics.
There is no lack of details, especially in the bathroom but also in the living area, in iron.
This denotes the design lines of a clean and minimal aesthetic. Often combined with the choice of extra-clear glass, it creates a chromatic and material contrast of contemporary elegance.

To conclude …

The contemporary style furniture, albeit constantly changing, is characterized by well-defined design choices. It adapts perfectly to elegant and simple tastes, for souls predisposed to always remain in line with the latest trends and design products. Those who choose the interiors of their home in a contemporary style dare to choose character, even if combined with neutral contexts.

Giving new life to furniture: adapting them after a move

Giving new life to furniture: adapting them after a move

Facing a move means turning your life around, renovating your home and introducing new furnishing accessories.
Beginning to pack, you make a natural selection of the objects to take with you, recognizing for each their own emotional value.
Many times, this process also involves the world of furnishings, which accompany the owners in this moment of transition.
Giving new life to furniture also means renewing the context in which they are inserted, managing to adapt them in terms of aesthetics and functionality to the new environments.

Adapting furnishing to a new context

When the furnishings are custom designed, their conformation responds to the needs of the customers, perfectly matching with the architectural context in which they are inserted. In doing this, a strong link is born between the rooms in which they are inserted and the shapes, proportions and mechanisms of use of the furnishings.
This would suggest an indissoluble bond between the two components, which would break when the furniture undergoes a relocation.
It is absolutely not said!

In fact, among the potential of custom-made furniture there is a flexibility factor that allows us to give new life to furniture by making few changes.
These make it possible to transform the general imprint of the furniture in order to adapt it to the new context both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.

A perfect example are the adaptations made to these furnishing extrapolated from an apartment between classic and contemporary. Let’s discovery this apartment among transformed furniture and new additions.

The kitchen: increases the work space and storage volumes

The kitchen certainly represents the beating heart of a home.
In the case of this apartment between modern and contemporary, its conformation was born from a natural reading of the architectural context in which it was inserted.

The corner development made it possible to exploit the side part with service columns with anthracite gray lacquered MDF doors.
These are equipped with column ovens on the right, pantry with removable trays and a central compartment for the free-standing refrigerator. The front is made up of lower volumes with large drawers and service doors and upper wall units in a brilliant white Lacobel.

The new arrangement has provided additional useful space for the overall dimensions. Being able to use additional space on both sides, the most natural solution was to exploit the remaining gaps with additional volumes.
On the right, we provide a service column which houses a modern wine cellar accompanied by a door with height-adjustable internal shelves.

On the opposite end, the main problem arises when the worktop is made of natural stone, which has undergone a chromatic change over the years.
To avoid incurring a visible difference between the added part and the existing one, a wooden top was thus created. It also acts as a cutting board for preparing meals. An element that not only solves an aesthetically weak point, but also provides a functional solution.

The living area: a new contemporary aesthetic

To equip the living area, we recovered the furniture made in 2006.
The choice of colors was already avant-garde at the time. Even in a contemporary reworking they can adapt perfectly, resulting elegant and current. The TV cabinet in glossy anthracite gray lacquered MDF alternates flap doors with service drawers, whose recessed handles give visual lightness.

In this case, giving new life to furniture means adapting them to the new context in which they are inserted, managing to exploit the flexibility of the same.
Small changes have been made, mostly considered maintenance. Re-lacquering where necessary or remaking of structural parts.

The same approach was then applied to the service hanging columns, which are made up of doors in the upper part and small drawers in the lower part. Their new position side by side allows them to welcome guests introducing them to the living area and, at the same time, create a visual divider from the more intimate dining room.

Children’s bedrooms: new tailor-made solutions to exploit architectural voids

The sleeping area houses the two small bedrooms whose conformation alternates architectural voids with important structural elements.
A tailor-made solution was therefore designed in both rooms in order to include all the necessary furnishings without sacrificing practicality and visual freedom.

For the first bedroom it was therefore decided to take advantage of the basement that leads to the mezzanine area to equip it with a shaped wardrobe.
Since the room is intended for a child, the dimensions and heights necessary for the clothes have certainly facilitated the design. Despite having little space available, taking advantage of the inclined height of the basement, it was still possible to create a double-height wardrobe with alternating shelves with fixed hangers.
The wardrobe is accompanied by a standing alone chest of drawers which is also used as a support surface.
The large one and a half bed is inserted in a niche. The latter used in the depth to fix shelves with hidden lighting.

In the second small room, the depth of the niche is useful for a certainly wider wardrobe. Full-height doors with push opening accommodate fixed tubulars, drawers for linen and shelves for folded items to satisfy the needs of a young girl.

The master bedroom: a wardrobe like new

The master bedroom is best equipped with a large wardrobe with sliding doors placed parallel to the bed.
Its linear aesthetic combined with spot ceiling lighting allows at the same time to hide its grandeur.
The result is a capacious and functional volume which, in the aesthetic impact of the room, tends to disappear while giving character and elegance.
Relocated from the old house, the different internal height has led to a reduction in height which has thus made it possible to better adapt to new environments.

The composition of the wardrobe comes from a natural division into three departments, corresponding to the division of the sliding doors.
On the outside, the double-height hanger houses removable glass shelves in the center. These are particularly suitable for storing folded shirts using the external sliding mechanism to reduce the internal height between the trays.
In the central compartment, the large linen drawers are accompanied by a pair of shelves for folded items and hangers in the upper part.
The left compartment instead houses a double hanger to accommodate long dresses and coats whose greater height compensates for the reduced space reserved for folded trousers and skirts.

Giving new life to furniture does not only mean rejuvenating it and making changes to its aesthetics. The bespoke design allows you to create furnishings that are versatile and able to adapt to new environments. Restoring a balance between aesthetic conformation in relation to the room and functional needs becomes the main goal.
