What is an Urban Kitchen?

What is an Urban Kitchen?

Urban. It’s a word that gets thrown around a lot these days for anything remotely ‘cool’.

The word ‘Urban’ actually refers back to the Latin translation of ‘the city’, but what does that mean for a kitchen?

Well, more than you’d think at first glance.

City Heights

The concept of an Urban kitchen is taking inspiration from the outdoors, but we’re not talking about the idyllic things like the seaside, or fields of green.

It’s in the beauty of things we often take for granted, especially in the city.

Colours & Materials

When you take a closer look, you’ll see that the colour palette of these kitchens is often the greys, whites, browns and blacks that most towns or cities have in common.

 ‘Industrial’ materials are also prevalent in the urban kitchen; Brick, metals, concrete and wood are key to nailing this particular look.

One of our favourite Urban kitchen designs and indeed our most popular, is the Kali by Christopher Mark:

It isn’t just the natural elements that Christopher Mark considers.

Drawing inspiration from brassieres, bars and corner shops in the form of neon lights, breakfast bars and seating booths, this kitchen range produces modern kitchens that still manage to feel familiar and inviting.

It’s these attributes that make them an excellent choice if you’re considering a multi-functional space with a social atmosphere.

Available in a wide range of materials and colours – as well as bespoke details – there is something for everyone.

At Glotech, we’ve fitted our fair share of these spectacular Italian kitchens, and we do a pretty good job at it. So, if you’d like some help adding a bit of ‘cool’ to your kitchen, just get in touch and we’ll arrange a chat.
