How to Get the Aran Kitchen Look
For those with a little more budget and space to spare, the Aran kitchen is the next step toward building the home of one’s dreams. With their clean, modern, and highly urban look, Aran Cucine’s designer kitchens are the stuff of aspirations and represent another class in design excellence.
While an Aran kitchen may not immediately fit within your budget, we have a few tips and tricks on how you can achieve the same effect for your kitchen. By incorporating these, you’ll be well on your way towards your very own designer space – the designer in question being you!
Inspired by the stones of Reggio Calabria comes ZR Ragno.
Aran Kitchen Tip #1: Emphasize Sleek and Clean Lines
The one thing that all Aran kitchens share is their emphasis on sleek and clean lines all around. Whether it’s the perfectly symmetrical kitchen island or the impeccably balanced wainscotting on each cabinet door, these lines serve to bring a sense of structure and cleanliness to the visual spectrum, setting the mood from the moment you walk into the kitchen.
The flooring plays an important role in supporting this look too. Most Aran designer kitchens opt for wood planks and stone tiles, which complement the sleek and clean lines around the built-in furnishings. When selecting tiles for your Aran-inspired kitchen, you’d want to make sure that you get rectified tiles like ZR Ragno, which have the perfect 90-degree edges of rectified tiles for a flawless installation.
Aran Kitchen Tip #2: Dominate with Earthy and Neutral Colours
Another distinguishing feature of Aran designer kitchens is their colour palette, which tends toward earthy and neutral colours, with only limited pops of solid pastel shades. This results in an effortlessly classy look that is also calming and conducive to kitchen work.
If you’re not feeling particularly adventurous, wood brown, cement white, and stone grey are all perfectly neutral colours that go great in any combination. The only thing you’d want to ensure is that your surface colours tend towards matt rather than glossy, as this is another component of the minimalistic and clean look.
Aran Kitchen Tip #3: Opt for Marble Backsplashes & Accents
Now for the flourishing touch: once you have your basic elements in place, it’s time to add the accents that will make the kitchen feel like one that’s truly your own. While within the Aran Cucine range, each designer has their own preferred way of accenting the space, our failure-proof pick would be marble accents, whose glossy surface and abstract design have the ability to infuse personality into your kitchen without running the risk of clashing with other elements.
For an especially impressive look, you would do well to make use of big slab tiles like Vogue Grande, which would be able to form your entire backsplash with a single piece of tile. You can download the Vogue Grande catalogue for free by clicking here:
Aran Kitchen Tip #4: Add Surface Texture Selectively
The modern sensibilities of Aran kitchens are very much rooted in previous movements such as Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern, both of which have a touch of retrofuturism. So, when thinking about the surfaces, you’d want to be selective about them: steel, stone, and other plain surfaces should be the focus, while textured surfaces, like terrazzo, should only be used sparingly.
When selecting your flooring, you would want to ensure that your tile shade variation is limited to V1 or V2 for most cases, for V3 under special circumstances. After you have the other elements in place, feel free to play around and see what fits best!
