Form Meets Function: Designing Your Kitchen With Elba
The kitchen is becoming more and more prominent when we speak of decorating a house. The challenge though is making the space both functional and aesthetically-pleasing: we look for ranges that can accommodate our cooking needs, and keep utilitarian items around. But why not have both design and function? Keep scrolling for inspiration to make your kitchen space just as eye-catching as it is functionally powerful.
ADD A VINTAGE FEEL
Vintage-inspired kitchens generally feel homey—they’re comfortable spaces you’ll want to spend a lot of time in. The great thing about these is that they’re very personal, so in putting together your vision, your specific needs and personal taste will set your kitchen apart from the rest. Add a vintage feel to your kitchen décor with a hanging lamp, wooden chairs and stools, woven baskets for storage, and even pieces with sentimental value. And don’t forget the freestanding range—we love the classic look of ELBA’s Italian vintage cooker as it embodies design elements from the past but combines it with technology of the future. The ELBA 9D VXX 838 freestanding range has a convection oven and 5 powerful gas burners with flame failure technology and knob-integrated ignition control, accessible through a sleek control panel with retro drop style knobs. Other vintage elements include double rail oven handles, a classic back guard, the lower plinth, and bevelled cooktop surface corners.
MAKE YOUR SPACE CUTTING-EDGE MODERN
For more modern, urban spaces, sleek, minimalist design elements emphasize the meeting of form and function. A monochrome color palette, metal fixtures and details, and clean lines are the key elements to achieving the look. ELBA’s Elegance Series of built-in cooktops and ovens fit especially well with modular shelving and furniture. Their designs use clean lines and modern materials to achieve sleek, yet aggressive styling. On the functional side, the series of cooktops and ovens offers outstanding design, industry-leading performance, and user-friendly ergonomics. By using finer materials, the ovens are able to achieve a minimalistic design with thin side profiles, slanted edges, and a high contrast finish.
