Contemporary fireplaces allow you to get inventive with your kitchen design and the way you utilize the fireplace. A popular idea is to put the fireplace in an area where it can serve the kitchen, dining room and the living space in the open plan living area. Two-sided and three-sided fireplaces allow you to get this done with ease, and these smart fireplaces also become the protagonist of your cheerful and inviting ’social zone’. Those trying to take the experience of adding a fireplace to the kitchen can also take things to a whole new level with smart kitchen islands that house a fireplace within. For a kitchen that is simply sensational!
Not All Modern! The beauty of adding wooden surfaces to the modern kitchen goes beyond mere textural contrast. It allows you to blend two different styles and add a hint of rustic, farmhouse, traditional or even industrial panache to the stylish, contemporary kitchen. While wood does a great job of lending that natural, rustic appeal, marble acts as a balancing element by elevating the &‘sophistication&‘ of the kitchen with its polished finish.
If recent trends are anything to go by, then a sleek, contemporary kitchen with polished finishes and glossy surfaces is definitely a thing of the past! As much as the late 90s and early 2000s moved toward kitchens with clean lines and a monotonous, factory-made look, homeowners are quickly turning toward more ‘natural‘ designs with styles such as farmhouse, rustic, industrial and country once again making a big splash. And the gorgeous Granduca from Marchi Cucine is a charming and tasteful addition to this growing lineup of stunning family kitchens.
