Fancy kitchen: what features does it have? How to design an fancy kitchen?

Fancy kitchen

If it is true that the kitchen is the heart of the home, an fancy kitchen can all the more be an excellent calling card for welcoming guests.

In modern interior design, this room of the home has expanded its boundaries and embodies, also in its furniture choices, the concept of conviviality. It is no longer just a space in which to prepare meals for the family, but a room to share with loved ones, with whom to spend quality time.

What needs do fancy kitchens fulfil?

An fancy kitchen is a space to be enjoyed as much in everyday life as in special moments. Depending on the case, it is a room that fulfils a purely practical function, if it is only used for preparing meals, or it becomes an entertainment-oriented room, if friends and family gather around the work area to drink, eat and chat all together while food is being prepared.

Ultimately, an fancy kitchen is a versatile and very often multifunctional space. Each of its elements is carefully selected to meet the most practical needs and to ensure an optimal user experience.

Aesthetics, as is only natural, should not be underestimated. Materials, finishes and colours must be balanced and harmonious, ensuring an excellent overall result.

The versatility of fancy kitchens is also expressed in terms of size. A sophisticated space can be created no matter how many metres are available. Rather than a constraint, space limitations should be seen as a stimulus to find original, made-to-measure solutions tailored to one’s needs.

How to design an fancy kitchen? All the best tips for optimal design

To succeed in designing an fancy kitchen you must, first of all, understand the characteristics of the space to be furnished. In particular, the type of room must be analysed. For example, the design will be structured differently if the kitchen is housed in a separate room from the rest of the house or if it is located in a space that continues towards the living area.

The presence and size of windows, columns and other structural elements must also be carefully considered, in addition to the size of the room to be furnished, of course.

From the point of view of interior design, many different solutions can be adopted, guided by one’s own taste or inspired by current trends. Those looking for a solution that maximises functionality and minimalism can consider structuring the kitchen by arranging the various elements in a line, on one or more walls.

Fancy kitchens with a modern character often integrate an island  or peninsula. These elements not only perform an aesthetic function, but can improve the usability of the kitchen, becoming the space in which food is prepared and cooked.

An fancy kitchen can also be designed by opting for the installation of one or more wall-hung modules, or for a kitchen without wall units. In order to understand which configuration is best, it is important to understand in detail what each person’s organisational needs are and what their preferences are in terms of design and aesthetics.

What style should be chosen to create an fancy kitchen?

The ways in which the concept of an fancy kitchen can be interpreted are really the most varied. There are those who consider the ultimate in elegance to be the use of solid wood furniture with a timeless design, and there are those who consider the simplicity of contemporary design to be the ultimate in elegance.

In choosing the style to adopt for the kitchen, personal preferences therefore play a decisive role and influence the choice of materials, colours, structure and the arrangement of the various elements that make up the room.

Those who love the classic style, for example, will probably commission an elegant wooden kitchen with warm colours and a linear layout. This will be complemented by a beautiful design table surrounded by comfortable and cosy chairs.

At the opposite end of the spectrum will be elegant contemporary-style kitchens, characterised by the use of light colours, smooth surfaces and innovative materials. In these kitchens, there is often no table, which is replaced by an island or peninsula, to be used for snacks or a quick meal.

Halfway between these two approaches is the so-called classic-modern style. In this case, classicism is toned down, for example through the integration of modules with contemporary lines or through the use of modern finishes or colours.

Making a kitchen design elegant can also be the ability to enhance a particular element in the room, such as a window, exposed beams, a fireplace or columns. These avenues are the way to a made-to-measure design .

Decorators and interior designers therefore have endless possibilities to create an fancy kitchen. By mixing materials, styles and layouts, they can best meet the needs of those living in the home and, as a result, achieve an optimal result, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
