Feeling the Burn: REHAU RAUVISIO ingrain™ Roasted Oak

Design takes influence from many different art forms. This year, cabinet craftsmanship takes a cue from “Shou Sugi Ban,” the traditional Japanese method of preserving wood through charring. Modern manufacturing now enables the replication of the rich variegated shades and details achieved through this form of wood preservation for a graceful worldliness that gleams confidently.

Blues in the Kitchen: REHAU RAUVISIO noirTM Midnight Dash

Kitchens are feeling blue in every shade and hue. Cabinetry, tile, appliances and more are moving away from white to various shades of azure, cornflower and navy to create a kitchen space that evokes a powerful mood. Daring, show-stopping designs lurk just around the corner as these colors form a foundation that elevates wood elements and backsplashes, creating combinations that are unexpected, beautiful and elegant. A kitchen washed in blue sets the stage for a serene and tranquil atmosphere, which is ideal for the central hub of the home to accommodate everything from meals to workspaces.

Rhythms of Nature: REHAU RAUVISIO terra™ Riverfront Elm

Organic patterns found within nature, such as the rippled graining of wood or the veins of a leaf offer a sense of serenity. Because these patterns have a calming effect, designers are looking to emulate the same comforting patterns and tranquil environments for homeowners. Cabinetry featuring natural wood-grain tones and tactile “ribbing” are in demand as they cater to both physical and visual senses.

The Art of Contrast with Black and White: REHAU RAUVISIO noir™ After Dark and REHAU RAUVISIO crystal™ Bianco

Just like the little black dress or the classic black tuxedo that never goes out of style, the contrasting black and white combo reigns supreme in the kitchen. Whether opting for sleek matte or radiant gloss finishes, the stunning impact that black and white have lends a powerful dynamism that keeps drawing designers and their clients back to this bold color combination.

Streamlined Upgrades: REHAU integrated handles

Just as layering necklaces adds depth and personality to an outfit, the choice of cabinetry handles dramatically plays into the final look. Designers complete the aesthetic of a space by integrating products that enhance the overall ensemble. REHAU integrated handles offer the ability to add that dynamic touch. With accentuated modern lines and unique streamlined styles, these handles are the perfect final touch to creative cabinet designs.
