TRENDING IN THE KITCHEN: SEAMLESS & STRUCTURED

Sunday, May 16, 2021

A kitchen that’s designed with real living at the heart of it, is a kitchen that’s built for life. At Life Kitchens we take a very down to earth approach to this philosophy in everything we do. For us, planning your kitchen is all about understanding you, your life, and the way that you live it. That’s why each and every Life kitchen is entirely unique, and tailored to you from start to finish.

We’re passionate about offering something for everyone and delivering the highest quality craftsmanship in every kitchen; with styles ranging from the ultra-contemporary through to the timelessly classic, and everything in between. With this in mind, we caught up with our head of design, Graeme Smith, to discover the inspiration behind our six latest kitchen looks – all dedicated to helping you re-imagine life in your kitchen. 

Welcome to the first two looks in our collection – SEAMLESS and STRUCTURED.

SEAMLESS

A welcoming kind of contemporary

“There’s often the perception that sleek and contemporary means stark, white, and overly minimal. However, our SEAMLESS look has been designed to embrace sleek modern living while injecting warmth and statement character throughout the whole space.

The handleless cabinetry in a soft, mid-toned Dust Grey effortlessly radiates light across the room. It keeps everything airy while providing the perfect backdrop to go deeper in places with measured drama and texture; the Burnt Ash island and bar insets, deep veined worksurfaces, exposed shelving, and grid-like handleless trims.”

Designed for real living

“The trick here is to soften this kind of look with greenery, a glassware display, or a few of your most treasured items. Despite the showstopping features, this highly social, open plan look has been designed with absolute practicality in mind; full height larders, integrated appliances, and a function-driven island with sink, hob and smart storage the whole way round.”

Sleek and seamless can be glamourous too

“A simple, handleless look can just as equally exude glamourous elegance if you’d prefer. Easily achieved through the careful selection of a warm neutral such as Cashmere, seen here paired with Mid-Oak feature cabinets, beautiful brass accents, and antique mirror styling.”

STRUCTURED

A classic take on industrial heritage

“There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to the design of your kitchen, and it’s absolutely possible to create a unique blend of your favourite styles. Whilst industrial looks can often be considered extremely modern and exposed, our STRUCTURED look shows how industrial features can be paired beautifully with softer classic design.

Keeping everything light and slimline is the key to holding this look together. Usually quite classic and solid in style, this Shaker cabinetry appears modern thanks to its narrow door surrounds and black trim handles that almost disappear. Equally, the strong concrete-style worksurfaces are super-slim in depth, with a fine spider veining for weightless delicacy.”

Layer it up

“It’s really important to achieve the right balance when two opposing styles come together. Go bold in places with features like black metal open shelving, industrial style lights, taps and furniture. But in contrast, layer this over lighter, matt cabinetry - seen here in Putty, adjacent to textured woodgrain insets to add warmth and interest at different levels. You’ll also notice that the floor and walls blend seamlessly into the cabinetry – a top tip for keeping a look like this light and open”.
