The kitchen is the area in our homes where we most spend time. Here are 5 elegant and functional kitchen designs to give you decor inspiration.
A kitchen must be two things: stylish and practical. It’s the most-used area in the house. Where you prep meals, where the kids do the homework, where the entire family has breakfast and where you do unpleasant chores such as the dishes and so on. It’s very important to find a balance between these two aspects so you actually enjoy the time you spend in this area.
This elegant kicthen with greyish cabintes and subway tile blacksplash is the perfect balance. It has plenty of storage, a beautiful kicthen island, which is one of the best ways to add both elegance and functionallity to a kitchen. Then elements like the pendant lamps, the bar stools and the marble countertops add a touch of elegance. Open shelving is a great way to add a casual vibe to your elegant kitchen.
Adding chandeliers on top of a kitchen island, that offers both storage and counterspace, is a great way of combining elegance and function. Of course the all ambiance of this all-white kicthen is extremely luxurious, with all the little detais and rich materials. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be functional. I mean 2 stoves and all that storage are pretty functional.
A minimal kitchen with high quality pieces is a great way to have this balance. Black and gold furniture and elements always add that touch of elegance. If your kitchen has straight lines like this one opt for more elaborate pieces like these bar stools or the Draycott pendant lamps.
This kitchen, designed by Kelly Wearstler is definitely stylish! But in case you’ve missed it’s also incredibly functional. The island in stainless-steel-clad with brass trim is an extremely luxurious touch. LUXXU’s pieces would fit right in.
Who knew a kitchen is these colors could look both so elegant and functional? The brass kitchen island with a marble countertop makes this kitchen very unique. It belongs to Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent’s former New York apartment. Other elements like the marble shelves, the black cabinetry, the lamp and the decorative pieces take this kitchen to the extra mile when it comes to elegance.
