Use of greenery and tiles can create more peaceful kitchen area
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/22/2013 -- When a young couple wanted to create a kitchen they could be proud of and could use as a getaway from their busy daily professional lives, they looked to make their kitchen something more than just a cooking area.
The two do love to cook, but they also enjoy entertaining, and so they needed a space that involved both the amenities of comfort with the capability of function. They also were looking for a kitchen that would have a natural, less forced, connection with the large patio out back.
That is why a team of designers implemented a more creative and visually connective feel to the couples house.
Making sure the kitchen had significant light was the first step in making sure there was a feel of life and vibrancy in the kitchen and living area. Adding colors that echoed the lush greenery of the surrounding outside was another important touch to make a seamless transition from outside to in.
When it came to laying out the kitchen, it was important to make everything handy and available without sacrificing what needed to be in sections for ease of organization. Making sure the island was large and spacious was a most-important specification, as cooking and entertaining can certainly take up space.
Gleaming glass tiles for the wall, with six variations of green joined in a cross-reed pattern. The wall was built with concave and converse tiles, creating an optical wave-like effect that underscored the general beauty of the kitchen, while adding a spark of delicious life to it. Reflection of light through greens gives a natural and healthy feel to any kitchen, especially when light from outside is refracted through the tiles at different points in the day.
More importantly, with added space, a natural feel from the greenery of plants and green tiles, and use a sense of handy organization, the entire kitchen feel more in control and at peace. This can be an important aspect of a kitchen for those who have busy lives, or are busy during entertaining.
