Nothing showcases the changing seasons quite like a makeover. As the weather cools and homeowners travel back indoors, the focus returns to the heart of the home, the kitchen. At AyA Kitchens & Baths, Fall/Winter 2014 offers a fusion of designs and styles.
High visual and tactile, texture – a predominant kitchen trend for 2014 – spreads from the floor to backsplash to cabinetry. With influences ranging from streamlined Scandinavian design to rustic Canadian farmhouses, wood is more prevalent than ever. Natural, raw materials like barn board, exposed beams, and brick are embraced alongside sleek surfaces, opposing imperfection with fluidity. Oversized metal hardware – in brass, bronze or blackened steel – compliments the warehouse-reminiscent look.
Cool and Clean
Get more with less. Simple elegance and clean uninterrupted lines return this season. Influenced by Japanese minimalism, hardware vanishes for cabinetry tree of knobs and pulls. As seen in the Avani Arc Collection, high gloss and matte finishes contrast crisp, eye-catching accentuation.
You don’t need a palace to feel luxury in the home. Rich jewel tones and lustrous finishes and hardware bring extravagance to the smallest of spaces. Mink browns, deep reds, and greys sweep across cabinetry doors and walls for big impact. Back glass is available in dramatic palette of colours, such as Crimson, Anthracite, Oyster, and Pitch Black. Integrated appliances blend seamlessly into the space without taking away from a kitchen’s dramatic appeal.
Space Saving Solutions
Reclaim unused space with a custom-designed kitchen that maximizes nooks and crannies exclusive to your home. At AyA, drawers replace many cupboards for increased functionality; small appliances hide beyond miniature garage doors; and open shelving celebrates items that are as beautiful as they are purposeful. Full extend pull out drawers and spice racks keep everything in reach, while built-in compartments for compost and recycling take the mess and hassle out of waste removal.
