In terms of combining traditional and contemporary designs, pine is the outstanding material used in furniture design. Though widely utilized across every room layout, the material is especially popular in kitchen design. This is primarily because the kitchen and dining area often captures the most intense natural light, and the tones of sunlight are complimentary to the light and earthy aesthetics of pine. It is therefore not surprising that pine kitchen furniture is among the best selling in the consumer market place.
Individual Pine Kitchen Furniture Components
The center piece of any kitchen layout is the table and chair set. Fortunately, most manufacturers produce pine kitchen tables and pine kitchen chairs with this in mind, with a diverse range of traditional and contemporary designs available for purchase. They also come in many different sizes from small to intermediate and large, meaning that there is a shape, size and aesthetic of pine table to suit any requirement. Even with particularly unusual room designs, many manufacturers provide customized tables to order, in any style or finish.
In contemporary terms, the style shaker tables are prominent as the most popular. These are inspired by the classic Bohemian designs prominent in country and farmhouse kitchens, and their simplistic and linear design has been recreated to compliment contemporary room layout trends. These designs are made more impressive by the fact that they have remained practically untouched and unaltered since their initial conception centuries ago, and their sales presence in the market is expected to grow further over time.
Pine kitchen cabinets and units are available in different design styles, with single units, corner units and corner base units often used to produce an overall kitchen view. These units form and shape the perimeter of the kitchen area, and advancements in design have created individual and freestanding pieces of furniture to create extra space or extra storage, or to simply vary to shape of the kitchen and dining area.
Freestanding Pine Kitchen Furniture and Kitchen Islands
Freestanding kitchen furniture or islands are very popular in contemporary room design. Not only do they provide extra cupboard and storage space, but they also create a visual effect unique to a particular kitchen. Typical pieces of freestanding pine kitchen furniture include single or double unit cupboards, which are suitable for larger and more spacious kitchens. They can reside in the centre of the kitchen area or at the perimeter, depending on the requirements of the homeowner.
The advent of pine kitchen islands has served a dual purpose: to provide a subtle increase in the use of pine furniture in the kitchen, and also to provide a storage space and functional kitchen surface. They can be included in a kitchen as mobile (so that they can moved to different areas of the kitchen depending on their application) or fixed and stationary for the requirements of simple items or condiment storage. Also available in different widths and heights, they provide a finishing touch to a pine kitchen furniture collection to maximize the brightness of natural light.
