When it comes to kitchen trends, creating impact is always near the top of the list. Here’s a look at just a few kitchens impact that have come across my screen lately:

This kitchen has tremendous impact with its dramatic color scheme and metallic drawer fronts. | japanesetrash.com

Talk about impact. This kitchen has tremendous impact with its dramatic color scheme, wide plank flooring, focus wall with no upper cabinets, trio of hanging pendants and those amazing metallic drawer fronts.


A gorgeous sunken kitchen that makes a statement using all wooden finishes--including the ceiling. | japanesetrash.com

On the other end of the impact spectrum, we have this gorgeous sunken kitchen that makes a subtle–but clear–statement using all wooden finishes–including on the ceiling. One of my favorite touches here is the use of ottomans as low counter stools.


The framing of this kitchen feels like a stage opening, giving it a very theatrical effect. | japanesetrash.com

The way this black and white kitchen is set within a frame is very theatrical, giving the space a heightened and dramatic feeling. The high-gloss, GLAMasculine finishes add to that effect.


Minimal kitchen. With logs. Brilliant. | japanesetrash.com

Here the pendulum swings to the opposite side once again, with a starkly minimal kitchen where the impact and serene beauty comes from an under counter space filled with logs.


Impact in this kitchen is accomplished using layers. | japanesetrash.com

And here’s a kitchen that uses layering to create impact – layering of materials visually: wood/marble/cabinets/backsplash, and layering of color and texture. This kind of mixing makes magic when done as expertly as is shown here.

Leather, concrete & glass make this a remarkable & refined masculine living room | japanesetrash.com

Leather, concrete and glass make this a remarkable and refined masculine living room. At least, if this were a living room, that is. It’s actually part of the offices of Brazilian architecture firm, Marcos Bertoldi Arquitetos. No matter the current usage, that combination of materials is a recipe for greatness–and the other pieces, like that table and the pendant lamp, are simply terrific. Oh, and I almost forgot the floor. I don’t know if you can tell, but it’s made of that textured industrial rubber that has coin-like flat bumps along the surface. From my point of view, this is a brilliant selection of elements all around. Can you just imagine the feeling in this space? Plus, being able to look out onto the lush, tropical grounds is sweet. This definitely has some modern Bond villain’s lair realness about it as well.
