- 22/02/2019 @ 12:16
Modern kitchens are becoming ever more minimalist, with a focus on handle-less design, open plan living, and more subdued colour schemes. Darker design options are increasingly popular, and with this rising trend, comes an expectation from the end consumer. Dark furniture radiates a sleek elegance – within and without. That means bright whites are out and subdued tones are in! But how best to capitalise on this growing popularity?

Worry not! Here at LDL, we’ve come up with 6 must have design elements for darker kitchen designs. So, without further ado, let’s delve into the details an examine exactly how to forge your dark design dreams.

A kitchen is only as good as the team who fit it and the components which comprise it. You build a project from the ground up, nowhere is this true more than in designing a kitchen. That’s why we’re starting our blog with this quintessential must have. Your number one priority should be to consider the details and to find the hinges to match your aesthetic design.

  1. BLUMOTION CLIP top hinges are a mark of engineered excellence. Not only is Blum’s patented soft-close technology integrated into the hinge itself, but there’s an optional finish which is as aesthetic as it is practical.  CLIP top BLUMOTION is now available in stunning Onyx Black! Dark hinges discreetly complement furniture and create a lasting visual impact. Install the motion technologies you’ve come to love without comprising on aesthetics or form, with Onyx Black CLIP top BLUMOTION!
But what about storage?

  1. Cupboards are a relic of kitchens past. Cramped, cluttered, confounding and terribly constrictive; isn’t it time to choose a more ergonomic innovation? Drawers are the optimum storage solution and with each passing year and fresh study, we see this fact being compounded and corroborated all the more. Offering increased ease of access and boasting ever higher storage capacities, the refinement of storage solutions has reached a pinnacle with LEGRABOX. Deeper, higher and wider than ever before, the options are endless. From deep drawers, to high fronts, Blum’s LEGRABOX has an up to 70kg carrying capacity and an unmatched smoothness of motion.
