Mminimal or industrial  kitchens – cool, elegant and bare of distracting titbits – work so well in old buildings. The straight, angular lines of 21st century minimal kitchens contrast beautifully with the ornamental plaster ceilings and decorated wall panelling that were “de rigeur” in the 19th and 18th century. Just like my earlier post on the modern-classic mix, the one enhances the other.

I think white on white works best in the classic ornamental spaces. And steel and bare brick or concrete work best in old industrial lofts. Which minimal kitchen has your preference?

Sstrakke of industriële keukens – cool, elegant en zonder troepjes overal – zijn zo mooi in combinatie met oude gebouwen. De rechte en hoekige lijnen van deze keukens uit de 21e eeuw contrasteren perfect met de ornamentele plafonds en gedetailleerde muurpanelen die zo “in” waren in de 19e en 18e eeuw.

Net als mijn eerdere post over de Modern-Klassieke Mix, halen de moderne klassieke elementen ook hier het beste in elkaar naar boven. Ik vind wit met wit erg mooi in de klassieke ruimtes met gestuukte plafonds en wandpanelen. En stalen keukens zijn perfect in oude industriele lofts met rauwe bakstenen muren. Wat vind jij het mooist?
