1. Minimalist corner kitchens (photo 2016)
Clean and simple kitchen facades with minimal finishing - the main trend of 2016. Carving and pretentious patterns are finally a thing of the past. Today, designers use other ways that make corner kitchens look impressive:
- Luxury shades, including chocolate, lilac, marsala
- 2 or even 3 colored facades, emphasizing each other;
- Brilliant metal accessories;
- Open shelves with unobtrusive decor;
- Built-in lighting of table tops and internal shelves of cabinets;
- Increased functionality, for example, smart corner solutions that maximize the use of space.
At the same time, the cold look of the minimalist kitchens was brightened up with the help of unusual kitchen chairs (retro and country design on the horse), indoor plants and warm wooden elements.
