WORDS Nathan Scolaro
Those in the know give us the "how to" on leading trends in kitchen and bathroom design.
The sleek kitchen, with its clean lines and seamless
design, is the entertainer's choice -- able to hide
the mess and e ort that goes into preparing food.
As Natasha Leembruggen from K&B Exclusive
says: "It's an inviting, yet subtle space that will draw
in homeowners and visitors alike with its seemingly
minimalist appearance, then capture them with its detail."
The sleek bathroom has a similar impact, and often
takes only one piece to evoke a particular mood.
Although reflective and shiny surfaces (such as high
gloss lacquers, glass, mirror and stainless steel) are
characteristically sleek, one can still achieve a striking
design (without incorporating these materials) by limiting
the colour palette and choosing an angle that will unify
the main features in the room.
"The key is clean lines and integration," Natasha says.
"Integrated fridges, dishwashers, sinks and ovens are
products made for the sleek kitchen.
"In the bathroom, it's all about tubs that sit flush
with the floor, wall-mounted handleless cabinetry and
frameless shower enclosures."
Using minimal furnishings and generally creating an
uncluttered space is also important when designing a
sleek kitchen or bathroom.
Sharp lines make a strong statement in this innovative kitchen
