Kitchen counter and worktop, a winning combination
How to create perfect combinations in your kitchen.
Cooking, eating, working and chatting: how many things you do in the kitchen! These are just a few of the activities that revolve around the room that par excellence warms our hearts, connects us to our emotions and reunites us with our family and friends in an embrace full of joy and warmth. This is why it is so important to create furnishing compositions that can make this dream come true every day. Thanks to solutions such as the kitchen counter which joins the worktop, in different ways, to form areas that are the ultimate example of functionality and conviviality.
When the kitchen has a clear “urban dimension”, it goes without saying that the style focuses towards the more contemporary, extremely clean and minimalist, or the industrial one that tends towards more vintage and “social” features. In the latter case we can create a cosy kitchen, based on the Diesel Open Workshop mood, in which the snack bench becomes a natural extension of the top, forming a corner that can be used on two sides where comfortable stools can be placed. Finishes and colours do the rest: the new Pinstripe Oak for base units and cabinets, the Bronze profiles of doors and handles, and the Calipso Quarz tops, all tone on tone, express an incredibly warm and sophisticated elegance.
Another example is given by the kitchen with a large snack bench that extends in parallel to the wall composition, in the centre of the room where you have all the freedom you need to move around. On one side is the cooking area, on the other is the breakfast bench with stools, in an open solution that connects the kitchen to the living room area characterised by a large table in Corian Deep Bedrock, in total continuity with the kitchen tops.
In this Boxlife project we can see a kitchen where the Stained Aluminium metal effect lacquered wall units and the Titanium Grey matt lacquered base units match the lighter tones of the wood effect floor. The snack bench closes the peninsula with an Arabescato Stoneware top, becoming the dynamic and central element of an open configuration where the kitchen is connected to the rest of the house.
Another peninsula solution, but in this case there are two main areas of the kitchen completely monochromatic in Bromine Grey Fenix NTM®, connected to each other by an essential Anthracite finish snack bench.
The top is placed higher than the worktops and has comfortable stools where you can have breakfast, a quick lunch or simply sit down to read the newspaper. A kitchen with a strong metropolitan soul, beautiful and equipped with all functions.
When the island occupies the centre of the scene, different furnishing possibilities can be created, according to the style and space available. With the use of different materials, the kitchen turns into a privileged place for experimentation. Like in the LiberaMente model with its clear modern imprint, where the sophisticated Malé White Fenix NTM® comes together with the warm Sunset Walnut of the cabinets and the Nabuk Oak slats for the breakfast bench top, fitted with the adjustable Slender support and placed in an unprecedented way to the worktop that extends along its entire length.
White and wood finish are the elements that also distinguish this model in the Carattere line, where the island with Satin finish Steel top accompanies the Nordic Oak veneered kitchen counter, creating a beautiful colour ensemble with the other Prestige White glossy lacquered furnishing elements.
Inserted in a more classic model like Family and in a smaller room, the island expresses the appearance of an area where many different activities can be carried out, giving the kitchen a deep sense of familiarity.
In this relaxing harmonious composition, you can see how the two thicknesses interact (2 and 4 cm) on the island’s top, with the comfortable and scenic Statuario laminate breakfast bench that enhances the aesthetics of this multi-purpose area.
