"Functionality first is the European way." This is what kitchen designer and director of bulthaup Denver William Landeros advises readers in a recent article about how to achieve a European style kitchen by CH&L magazine. Bulthaup is a world-renowned German kitchen manufacturer famous for innovative designs that marry minimalist aesthetics with incredible efficiency and precision. In other words, bulthaup is the archetype of modern European kitchen design.
To achieve your own sleek, European-inspired kitchen design, Landeros recommends quartz countertops like Caesarstone. The leading brand in premium quartz surfaces, Caesarstone countertops are not only highly functional, but they also offer a chic, minimalist aesthetic. And on top of this, Caesarstone quartz countertops are made of natural materials, a fundamental element of European design.
Owner and lead designer at Exquisite Kitchen Design, Mikal Otten additionally advises to keep it contemporary. Think clean, horizontal lines and crisp contrasts. For sleek European kitchen designs, Otten likes juxtaposing cold stone floors with warm woods, for instance.
Finally, avoid clutter at all costs. Keep your Caesarstone countertops or Caesarstone floors clear of any unnecessary items. A true European style kitchen feels is perfectly organized with everything in its right place. As a result, European kitchens feel clean, spacious, airy and wide-open.
