Kitchen Remodel Featuring An Interesting Mix Of Concrete And Reclaimed Wood

We’re going to take a look at a very nice kitchen remodel from Amsterdam. It has a beautiful industrial vibe and it features an interesting combination of materials. The current look and design of the space were the creation of designer James van der Velden of Bricks Amsterdam. The task was to remodel the kitchen, not just the whole space.

The combination of wood and concrete is a very interesting choice for the kitchen. Both materials have beautiful textures when analyzed separately and they contrast with each other when put together. It’s this contrast that makes the choice of materials so interesting in this case.

The designer chose them for both functional and aesthetical reasons. Concrete is a nice material to use in a kitchen because it’s durable and strong. Wood, on the other hand, is a softer material with a warm look and a texture and color that makes it look cozy.

They are the heart of the home, full of life and warmth and interaction.

Traditional kitchens are work-focused and incorporate basic materials in their designs. Contemporary kitchens tend to be sleek and refined and stylish. It’s a lovely kitchen that incorporates the best of both worlds within its proverbial walls.

10 Smart (and Affordable) Space-Savers for the Kitchen

Most of us probably don’t have as large of kitchens as we would like. It seems like there is always plenty – and then some – of stuff to fill the cupboards and drawers and spill into overflow storage areas. While we might need to take a step back and look at this as an Accumulation of Stuff problem (as opposed to a square footage problem), it’s also nice to know that there are some great, affordable space-saving options for our kitchens. Here are ten such smart kitchen ideas:

Stick your sink in the corner and install a wall-mounted faucet. This is especially beneficial to tiny kitchens with very little counter space, because the sink doesn’t “chop up” what little counter space there is. As an added bonus, wall shelves above the faucet provide a great place to store cheerful décor or useful kitchen items.
