Nova Kitchen, kitchens and furniture

Nova Kitchens, unleash your idea of home

The history of kitchens Nova begins in the early 90s by a reality company specializing in the production of modular kitchens in classic style. Since the early years, the company follows a steady path of development, knowing place with outstanding results in the growing mobile market in Italy. Thanks to the increase in revenue, already in the late 90s Nova Kitchen can expand its facilities with two important interventions at the factory, so as to bring it to a covered area of 10,000 square meters.
With the advent of the new millennium, a important investment in machinery allows you to start a new production line and style kitchens are progressively oriented towards the modern , focusing in this way the development efforts on design and research materials. The company also says so in the contemporary furniture market, responding to the needs of the client's taste and flexibility of the global era.
To support these important steps of their maturation, shrewd strategic choices have marked a growth path consistent with the ' commitment never to betray the soul of the original business of identity. Over time, this philosophy has led us to consider flexibility as a fundamental hallmark of design solutions Nova Kitchen .
Bearing this in mind, the new production line is accompanied by a new department devoted entirely to the customization of the product, with a true inside own workshop and are able to study solutions for projects of furniture exclusive.
The valuable network of partnerships and robust synergies established with the excellent craftsmanship of the small territory, eventually contributing to the realization of compositions with attention to detail and with a strong appeal "Made in Italy".

Fool-Proof Stovetop

It seems like every time I try to light the stove I always choose the wrong knob! Clearly, I’m not the only one because Caner Aras’ Eclipse Gas Cooktop makes it easy to navigate from knob to burner. The knobs themselves safely recess into the top when not in use, ensuring that one isn’t accidentally activated while working around the stove.

 Centre of attention –  Graceful merger of kitchen, dining and outdoor area

Designer : Kim Duffin CKD, CBD, Sublime Architectural Interiors (Sumner Park, Qld)

In a climate that allows alfresco living most months of the year, it makes sense to open up a home's interiors to fresh air and sunshine. Designers may even go so far as to blur the line between indoors and outdoors completely. This project by kitchen designer Kim Duffin forms part of a redeveloped home in an inner-city suburb. Duffin says he took the client's initial brief and applied his own vision. "The design places a dining area, kitchen, appliance pantry, powder room and a large outdoor space at the rear of the home. We wanted to bring all these various elements together in one large volume, in a way that would optimise space and create a connection between all zones.
"The outdoor and indoor areas read as one space, separated only by large bifolding doors and a change in flooring direction. Similar tones and finishes link the two spaces visually."
The kitchen is set to one side of the room, downplaying its presence, with the prep areas out of sight, in the new appliance pantry.
"We were able to reconfigure the rear walls to assimilate the appliance pantry on the right, by the kitchen, and powder room to the left, near the stairs. Both ancillary spaces are hidden from view behind doors in the panelling. The refrigerator and freezer are also integrated, to the left of the appliance pantry door."
A window splashback forms a connection to the outdoors and brings additional natural light onto work surfaces. Glass fronts on the upper cabinets also help make the room feel lighter. The long, linear nature of the cabinetry is accentuated by recessed aluminium pulls. The run of cabinets continues outdoors to the alfresco area. While the finished effect is seamless, all-weather finishes have been used outside.
To maximise floor space and downplay its presence, the island backs onto the booth seat at the head of the dining table. The raised seat back conceals kitchen clutter from diners. "The Caesarstone tabletop is the centrepiece of the kitchen," says Duffin. "This has a clear acrylic substrate that allows the engineered stone to be side and backlit. LED lighting colours can be matched to any RGB-paint value – the possibilities are almost endless." As the room is open to a shared driveway, laser-cut aluminium screens bring a degree of privacy. This feature is repeated on the other side the room, by the stairs.
