IDS12: Kitchens, Kitchens, Kitchens!

The 2012 Interior Design Show had no shortage of kitchens. The kitchen designs leaned towards sleek contemporary designs, where only a few broke the mould and went for a more traditional look.

IKEA created a sleek black and white kitchen that would fit in nearly any modern home. It was simple, beautiful and timeless.

AyA Kitchens decided to take the luxury angle with their kitchen. Tomas Pearce created a room that looked more like a night club than a kitchen. We know quite a few people that would love to have this beauty in their home. Black cabinetry hid all the appliances, storage units and sinks.  A wood textured wall graced the sitting area and the island was “under lit.” Notice the beer tap in the island? This kitchen is definitely something you can entertain with.

Varasmus created a condo-sized kitchen that has quite a retro feel. They were proud to showcase their signature stainless steel solid piece counter-tops. Varasmus sells and installs full kitchens. We loved the usability and practicality of this ‘room.’ The countertop is easy to maintain, hygienic and sloped so that water will drain into the sink. We also loved the plate drying racks over the sink.

Cranberry Hill Kitchens created a very traditional kitchen. This kitchen has beautiful features and moulding. The range is the centre piece of this space with a nearly floral tile backsplash. Note the gorgeous moulding and wood tile flooring.

Valcucine showed off their ingenuity by hiding nearly everything, including the kitchen faucet. At first glance we thought they were selling cabinetry, and boring cabinetry at that, but they were quick to show us the secret behind this kitchen. A light touch reveals clever hidden compartments and storage units.
