White color in the interior of the kitchen as an ageless classic
A creative family from New York turns to professional designers for help in creating an interior of an embedded kitchen using ready-made hanging cabinets.
The Brooklyn pair of Bosco Sodi and Lucia Corredor like clear lines, restraint and low cost of kitchens from Ikea. But they were not satisfied with the fact that their new house would not be different from thousands of others. Driven by a desire for European standards and a desire to avoid banality, they turned to Jennifer Leavy to design a unique kitchen for them.
Levy placed the lockers from Ikea in a symmetrical way, using even the space above the refrigerator to give the room a more original look. On the right, in one of the lower cupboards, a microwave oven was set up.
To conduct wiring, I had to move the lower cabinets a few centimeters from the wall. The designer dug the gaps with pieces of facing panels. "We often resort to this, for example, when we can not move the plumbing. Cabinets because of this a few are issued ahead, but, as a rule, this is not particularly noticeable, "notes Levi.
The glossy surface of the doors makes the room brighter. Two cupboards stand on both sides of the refrigerator and serve as store rooms. Tile in the style of the metro covers the whole wall.

The highlight of the kitchen is a custom-made breakfast rack from specially treated wood. The designer claims that she managed to find the perfect balance between elements with contrasting textures: on one side of the kitchen, glossy surfaces dominate, on the other – objects from monochrome rough materials.
You can see that there is a partition between the sink and the bar counter. It supports the work surface. The other two simply complete the image of the rack. As Livi says, this is a great place, and homeowners are happy to use it to grab a bite and drink wine.

By creating focal points, Jennifer bets on dark colors. In addition, these shades perfectly hide the shabby. To make a difference in the modern look of the kitchen, Corredor gets a few vintage gizmos, for example, a box for storing small things, and places them around the room. An apron, made to order from stainless steel, provides a snow-white wall with reliable protection from splashes.
Metal parts hardly stand out against the background of white lockers
The author of the project decided not to cover the entire wall with an apron, because in this case the interior could have turned out to be too cold. The hood is connected to a duct system arranged inside the wall. The dark countertops create a contrast with the white glossy finish and emphasize the horizontal lines of all technical devices and the bar counter.
