Not just a snack! Introducing the kitchen counter
Let’s find out the various models, materials and possibilities of inclusion within a modular kitchen, also in its interaction with the living room.
A furnishing element with outstanding functionality and considerable styling appeal, the kitchen counter makes it possible to put together creative solutions that adapt to various contexts and types of modular kitchens. Let’s look at the innovative materials and shapes to choose from to accommodate all possible requirements.
More work in the kitchen
There are multiple “ingredients” available to build a tailor-made and comfortable kitchen space, where you can try your skills at the hob. One of these is the possibility of having appropriate surface space to cook with all the professionalism of a real chef! The kitchen counter offers this precious function: it provides extra centimetres to the space afforded by the worktop so you can move around more freely and practically with the tools of the culinary trade.
In an island composition the kitchen counter constitutes the added element that supplements the accessorised operating monobloc with everything you need to wash, cook and store in the dedicated base units underneath.
In this version of the Mia by Carlo Cracco model, it stands out from the adjacent steel top also for the material used to make it, namely Pietra d’Iseo-Ceppo Stoneware. Moreover, where accompanied by dedicated stools, it can also become the element of a snack area to have a quick bite to eat.
In a home where there are no boundaries and where various moments throughout the day cross over onto one another, the kitchen and living room furniture are integrated to create new configurations, thanks to modular cabinets and tall units or equipped walls leading into the living area.
In a kitchen that is physically separate from the living room and at the same time joined to it by a wall that also serves as a bookcase, the large island in the middle has a bench with a top in Glacier White Corian® and Jaipur Elm Decorative Melamine finish fitted with a hob and sink, drawers, pull-out baskets and a table top with metal supports where the family can get together and share a meal.
A practical and efficient solution of the Motus project to avoid inserting a table in the kitchen too, should it already feature in the adjoining living room area.
This island solution is also innovative, as it brings together all the kitchen’s primary functions. Starting with its base unit with doors, shaped drawers and pull-out baskets in Light Grey glossy lacquered finish, it develops originally into an unprecedented breakfast bench veneered in Vintage Oak wood.
