Adding a touch of European craftsmanship to your kitchen, Palazzo Kitchens & Appliances offers the best of both worlds – local design with international flair. We showcase three of their picks when it comes to design trends for 2017
Custom-designed locally, Palazzo Kitchens & Appliances turn to German artisans to craft their kitchens, ensuring their designs are not only perfectly suited to your space, but are approached with a wide scope of design ideas, product access and technology.
'Our kitchens are made in Germany and are high-end in their finish and quality. Yet we can create them to suit all budgets, be it for a new home, renovation or new build', explains Victoria Street Branch Manager, Charlotte Neale.
‘Our designers are on hand with their wealth of expertise and knowledge to guide our clients through their journey’, says Charlotte. ‘Building anything from nothing is a challenge in itself; our designers are trained to think spatially and to see the over-all picture.' As Charlotte explains, 'a designer can keep you to your investment level and save you time and effort'.
With two designers recently invited to attend the Nobilia in-house exhibition, where they were exposed to 74 different kitchen displays showcasing the latest in technology, design and innovative solutions, you can rely on this team to create truly unique solutions.
For purists seeking aesthetics and a functional design in every last detail, the choice is easy: Atmos – an elegant, timeless play of colours in stone grey, polar white and graphite, which is clearly defined and perfectly structured.
Available in an array of different finishes, ranging from high-gloss and soft lacquers through to various coloured glass fronts to simulate wood finishes, Atmos is unmistakable with its cubic style and precise, horizontal lines.
Igniting thoughts associated with openness, transparency and purity, it is no surprise that white ranks as Germany's absolute favourite kitchen colour.
Yet this can easily become boring - unless both design and planning are refreshingly different and dare to depart from the mainstream. With its curvaceous lines and soft-looking shapes, this kitchen – Onda – stands in stark contrast to the once rigidly puristic design.
Matt black lacquer
The repeated spray coating of black matt lacquer kitchen doors produces a dark tone with a rich depth of colour, making black matt lacquer kitchen units ideal for a stylish and sophisticated modern kitchen design.
Black matt lacquer is most commonly chosen for large open-plan spaces, but works for smaller kitchen spaces too, and is beautiful in combination with contrasting colours such as white, cream or even a high-gloss finish in a wine red or blackberry tone.
Alternatively, integrating black matt lacquer kitchen units with a warm gloss wood veneer introduces varying textures and contrasts, making for a captivating and exciting design.
