In this contemporary apartment, you’ll find a decorative kitchen countertop and splashback in an ergonomic space.
Homeowners dig apartments with predominant white walls, ceiling, and floors. It’s a blank canvas — they are free to try anything to improve the design. In this apartment, the homeowner focused on upgrading the kitchen. Here, they installed a decorative kitchen countertop and splashback. Matchy, those two are the stars in this kitchen.
Solid surface countertop
Look at the rusty-looking countertop above the white island and kitchen cabinets. It’s not metal, it’s not stone. It’s a solid surface countertop. This is a perfect mid-ranged price countertop. If you don’t prefer laminate counters, opt for this one. It comes in a multitude of colours and designs, like this unique auburn material.
The designer of this kitchen went for a colour that will stand out from the all-white interiors. The reddish-orange countertop added warmth and visual interest to the room.
Apart from aesthetics, there are other advantages of using a solid surface countertop. For one, the material is non-porous. That prohibits the growth of germs and bacteria, so you have a sanitary workspace.
Also, a solid surface material’s colour and design go all the way through from top to bottom. You will still see the same material even if the material chips after impact. No worries, you can even out the surface again using fine grain sandpaper.
Concrete and glass splashback
Another star that shares the limelight with the countertop is the concrete countertop. That’s not real concrete; just a photograph protected by a layer of clear glass.
Glass is smooth and easy to clean. plus the concrete design underneath somehow hides the food stains from cooking.
Other notable design features
This kitchen boasts a spacious workspace. The cook can move freely from the counter to the island and back.
There are many storage options in this kitchen. You have closed cabinets, open shelves, and a built-in wine rack.
Finally, you gotta love the sitting area near the kitchen. There’s a comfy window seat plus a set of living room furniture.
