Kitchen is the place where we are spending a good part of day, so it would be nice to have a beautifully designed cooking place. Fortunately, there are plenty of designers out there that can turn a kitchen into a work of art.

The nautical trend has been lifted to the next level with this ship-inspired kitchen by Alno. The modern Marecucina kitchen boasts beautiful wood details and an artfully shaped countertop, skirted in clean, white cabinets that provide plenty of stylish storage – out of sight, out of mind. A lighting panel is integrated into the mast. Complete the look with ultra-modern chrome hardware, or take it to new heights of luxury with a stunning gold faucet and accessories. The look is ideal for minimalist kitchens.
And now something brave and modern. The Argento Vivo kitchens by Italian company Ged Cucine is all about color. The vivid orange hue is the perfect over-the-top complement to the kitchen’s minimalist, straight lines and almost clinical simplicity. Entertain guests while you cook at the stunning built-in breakfast bar, which flares at one end into a table for dining. Another really cool feature is the glass-topped table illuminated from within, offering romantic ambient lighting while you sip your wine.
It might look pretty, but if it doesn’t work then what good is it? This practical kitchen by Italian kitchen company Veneta Cucine has it all – fashion and function and we love such combinations. The Liquida kitchen puts into practice some important principles, according to the designers. This custom-style kitchen features modern, lacquered facades with minimalist details and an integrated light that illuminates your work space and looks out of this world. The only thing missing her is - you!
We simply adore the Alu kitchen's wine and cheese theme. Designed by Martin Steininger, this new specialty kitchen offers everything for the wine connoisseur just short of the wine itself (you will buy it, won't you?). This entertainment island offers stylish under-counter bottle storage and boasts an integrated concealed compartment for wine and cheese degustation silver ware. Add to that a sink and a sleek, transparent-door fridge and you can practically smell the urban-style cooking.
And the real beauty for this instance of Design, art and nice stuff. The Suprema white kitchen designs by Moka incorporate color in an unexpected way. The modern, white kitchen cabinet faces give this often-cluttered, chaotic space some sweet serenity with a clean, contemporary look. The countertop, backsplash and details are done in a variety of vibrant hues. Just choose your favourite and let it inspire you. Let your kitchen reflect your style which will grow with this one, we guarantee. ■
