Unique Kitchen Design Elements to Design a Dream

By | October 11, 2017

Unique kitchen design elements make realizing dreams easier, simply because they give the cook room such variety. Everything from cooker hoods to cabinet handles comes in a myriad and one designs that can turn the most utilitarian kitchen into a chef’s dream.

Modern Cooker Hoods

Since we mentioned them first, let’s take a look at the modern cooker hoods. They are simply amazing. You can find them in a form of simple but stylish metallic tubes, cool slide outs, and all kinds of other shapes. Finishes vary, too. Stainless steel and glass aren’t the only two options today.

Designers take every opportunity to make the hoods less bulky and appliance-y and rather more alluring and decorative.

There are also futuristic designs, if you don’t mind lacquered plastic and curvy lines. Built-in extractor hoods are, too, available, if you’d rather not have one hovering over the stove.

Unique Kitchen Design Elements

Unique designs are constantly emerging on the market, you only need to keep an eye out. Mammut floor kitchen hoods certainly look impressive, but you may require much more space to accommodate even one of those.

Addressing attractiveness (or lack thereof) of ceiling hoods, Elica created a design that resembles a crystal chandelier, which will certainly give your kitchen that elegant luxury feel.

But even if you aren’t against the ceiling variety, there are more shapes than the familiar rectangle. You won’t have to look hard to find some designing options.

Interior Architecture

You can always count on interior architecture to add a unique touch to any of your rooms. It can be as simple as molded ceiling or an oddly-shaped window. Of course, you can go much further, if you’re just in a planning phase of your home.

Windows, skylights, and transoms may not be the most intricate of interior architecture elements but they will definitely bring lots of daylight to the kitchen, and open it up to the views.

Andrew Maynard went unconventional route with a staircase that runs through the surface of a kitchen island.

Unique Finishes

Unusual finishes may not always be practical but they are mostly always unexpectedly impressive. Rare stones while undoubtedly gorgeous aren’t your only option, though. Simple materials like wood and concrete can look quite unexpected, if you find a different use for them like this wooden cooker hood by Elica.

Live-edge wood elements make not only an unexpected and gorgeous addition to the kitchen but also render it trendy. Even that, however, isn’t necessary to make an impression. Think weathered tiles with a graphic print or a stock photographic mural.

A simple contrast in materials can also be enough to create dynamic in the interior that will be instantly recognizable.

One-of-a-Kind Islands

Unique kitchen islands often require lots of space, but as long as it’s not an issue, they can truly transform the room. Various brands tried different shapes, but a rectangle is still pretty much the industry’s favorite. You may find traditional islands with unusual oddly-shaped elements, though, like the design below by Elmar.

No need to outfit the entire kitchen in custom cabinetry. Investing into a unique kitchen island, however, makes sense, since it’s always the main focal point of the room.

Those unusual islands are as functional, in case you wondered, so don’t hesitate going with something bolder.

Unique Kitchen Design Elements: Hardware & Features

Even hardware can make much difference in the kitchen. Modern kitchen sinks and hardware look for more than to provide you with appropriate functions. Also kitchen features may range from something familiar like a peninsula to an unexpected fireplace.

SAOTA never fails to take luxury to the next level with every new project. In Glen 2961 they built a fireplace into the side of a stone kitchen island.

Photographic murals and other types of wall decor aren’t as widespread in kitchen decor, but that’s what makes them a great decor solution.

Accessories & Furniture

Kitchen accessories and furniture don’t have to be the means to an end. For instance, unique lighting fixtures can become an original design element in your kitchen. That minimal kitchen below would look too ascetic without the two extendable angled lamps.

Kitchen furniture design is too varied right now to stick with boring. You’ll also find it pleasantly multifunctional and cool.

Of course, repurposing old vintage furniture can have its advantages. For one, it’s unique and may also be free. What’s not to love?

Unique Storage Ideas

Similarly, storage doesn’t have to be a headache in a contemporary kitchen thanks to all the storage-friendly kitchen furniture. Aster Cucine created a kitchen design that is specifically tailored for wine lovers, while Team 7’s island with the longest pull out drawer is made with pedantic hosts in mind.

Kitchen cabinets don’t have to be made out of wood. Fixer Upper makes a point with wispy open glass shelving. Supported by golden tubular pillars, it allows plenty of daylight to travel further into the open plan kitchen from the living area.

More unique kitchen design elements are to be found in the great wild that is internet. Take a look around to design your dream kitchen.
