Modern Opulence Bundled with Comfort in Kitchens

Kitchen WorktopTo furnish new homes in modern interior design style is not an easy task, with the variety of materials and items for each room available in shops and advertised on the basis of their functionality, sleek design, and comfort. There are certainly predominant patterns in the furnishing of new homes or renovation of other ones. The approach is with a view to providing novelties in the ambience to obtain a feeling of changes eagerly awaited by all householders. Furthermore, the second consideration is the strife for all the comfort that can be achieved for rest and relaxation in bedrooms, pleasant hours spent by the entire family in living rooms, or busy cutting, spreading, slicing, sprinkling on svelte kitchen granite worktops.

The elegance and opulence in bedrooms, living rooms and guest rooms are staples that everyone expects for attaining the right unique home ambience. Luxury and opulence in kitchens sparkling with granite worktops and new style kitchen furnishings are still considered a little surprising, although the attitude is changing fast. But the surprise is truly nice, and increasingly more people opt for more sparkle in their new modern design kitchens by choosing granite worktops that boast the same colour as kitchen cabinets – with the abundance of granite colours available that is easy and adds extra style to new kitchens with uniformity of colours and nuances.

People prefer darker colours for their kitchen granite worktops, and according to specialists besides considered more stylish such granite varieties also prove to be more durable. Durability is especially important for work surfaces like granite worktops where a lot of activities are done on a daily basis. When openings are cut for cookers hobs and for sinks, these sections become more susceptible to breaking, and choosing granite worktops in dark colours is recommended by renowned granite manufacturers and interior designers. Another rule of thumb is to consider kitchen layout and size to see how slabs of granite will be used to form worktop surfaces, as granite slabs are produced in sized of up to approximately three metres. In fact, because some granite colours tend to be unstable when manufactured in slabs over 2.6 metres long, so joining of granite pieces can be necessary.

Fitting sinks in granite worktops is another important consideration. With inset sinks, simple cuts are needed which are not as expensive as cuts needed for undermount sinks. To achieve the best quality of cutting undermount sinks, manufacturers use computerised cutting systems, as cutting by hand does not result in such sleek cutting quality.

Interior design is offering a new aspect of elegance for modern homes – newly furnished and renovated kitchens with opulence and sparkle that are not inferior to those of other rooms which traditionally steal the attention in terms of stylishness. Adding elegance to kitchens where people spend so much time truly pays off for lifting the mood and adding pleasure to hours spent in luxury, cooking and preparation activities performed in comfort and amid cutting edge fittings and kitchen top surfaces.

    We’re well into 2017, and some of the kitchen worktop trends that started the year are already fading away. Here are 5 trends with staying power.   1. Solid coloured stone Natural stone has natural variation, so it’s rare to find a slab of granite or marble that looks entirely uniform. In fact, the variation and patterning is what makes those stones so sought after, so it’s perhaps a little ironic that solid colours are a hot trend in stone worktops. Whatever the reason, manufacturers like Consentino are […]

For several years, many people from the building industry had been trying to come up with some kind of a synthetic form of granite. Later on, this gave way to the birth of liquid granite. The term was coined because of the strength of the materials which will be used to create granite worktops. The synthetic version actually looks like granite and even feels like it. There are even a lot of paints right now in the market which resemble the appearance of granite. After a few years of the […]
