How to create soft geometry in your kitchen by Johnny Grey

How to create soft geometry in your kitchen by Johnny Grey

It is important to create an easy flow of movement in your kitchen, for both practical and aesthetic reasons. In his book, Kitchen Culture, design expert Johnny Grey shows you how with his expert tips on soft geometry in your kitchen.

how-to-create-soft-kitchen-geometry-by-johnny-greyKey aspects of planning

Create an easy flow of movement throughout the space so that obstacles feel they belong rather than impose. Imagine that a river has been flowing through the space and over time the water has ground away all protrusions. The river makes its pathway easy flowing.

Design central pieces with rounded edges, particularly central islands and peninsulas. This makes for easier use of the work surfaces too.

At pinch points where distances between the cabinetry is tight create soft shapes that allow for smaller corridors, allowing one to make bigger work surfaces when space is limited.

Avoid always using the walls to position the cabinetry. Think of the focus as being the centre of the space with people using the kitchen being able to look around the room, not just the walls. This is more sociable and makes better use of the room.

As a design exercise imagine yourself moving around as if you were partially sighted. This helps you decide how easy it is to perambulate around the furniture without being injured or disrupted.

Be aware of the role of peripheral vision; what happens at the corner of our vision uses up a lot of mental activity surprisingly. The lack of sharp edges makes for more relaxed movement.

Use curves which add a soft, sensual quality to the design but don’t employ them everywhere. They work best when there is a functional basis to their deployment.

Kitchen Islands

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

A kitchen island design can be as simple or as complicated as you like and tailored to suit your specific needs.

You can design a kitchen island for any purpose. If you want to simply use it as a table for sitting around to eat or have a sink plumbed in to do the dishes in, it can be done. The first thing you have to decide therefore, is what you want from a kitchen island design.

Once you know exactly what your kitchen island is going to be used for you can think about how you want it to look. You can get flat kitchen islands or multi-level kitchen islands. If you’re using your island to sit around then a flat level will be much better. However, for working and ease of use a multi-level kitchen island is the better design.

The kitchen island is often the focal point of a design, therefore special attention has to be given to it’s appearence. People often choose to have their kitchen island custom built to ensure it fits in perfectly with their design. Either way, it’s worth making sure the island will look right in the space before making any decisions.

The amount of space you have in your kitchen will also be a factor when deciding what to use your island for. If you have room for a bigger island then you can have things like a second fridge or dishwasher as well as a sink and space to sit at. Small kitchens will only be able to incorporate a smaller island with smaller features. However much space you have to work in, think about what you can realistically include in your island.

A new idea is to use multiple islands in a kitchen design. For instance, some people choose to have an island to sit around and eat and another for food preparation and the washing up. If you have the space, then a multi island kitchen can be both practical and original.

We have more information on kitchen design and can also divert you to some great suppliers of islands and other kitchen furniture.

Oyster by Veneta Cucine is beautiful collection of minimalist kitchens which offer new solutions in functionality requirements. Italian kitchens are well known to come in sleek and simple designs. For this reason, you can expect Italian designs to be more contemporary and modern looking. Kitchens are made in black or white colors, but always in combination with wood. Thanks to such choice of color, kitchen looks contemporary and in the same time natural. The wood has natural and warm colors, that is highlighted by steel handles and appliances, modern striking design and other traits.

This is a unique characteristic of Italian kitchen designs. Voids are built-in deliberately to create the illusion of a bigger kitchen. This is possible because of the minimalist approach that Italian designs adopt.
