Choosing kitchen appliances

To match the right appliances with your Colombini kitchen, here are a few simple suggestions: whether it is classic or modern, the important thing is to keep its identity without sacrificing anything in terms of practicality.

Which appliances to choose for a classic kitchen?
For a traditional kitchen, appliances in classic or country style can be chosen, but steel may also be a solution to give a modern touch.
If you choose steel, be mindful of the oven handle and the cooking hob knobs: do not combine steel appliances with modern handles that have a glamorous and minimalist design, it is best to opt for large solid knobs with a clean cut, almost professional, style.
The sink can be in synthetic material or in steel; soft rounded lines suit classical kitchens better, fitted “overmount”, i.e. raised from the worktop, or alternatively “undermount”.
Which appliances go with a modern kitchen?
If you love modern kitchens and are looking for integrated appliances with a more contemporary styling, you can choose between a steel oven or one in white or black glass, to match the colour of your kitchen.
The cooking hob can match the oven or the worktop: it is often matched with the top if the oven is not immediately underneath, but further away, for example in a tall unit. Here too, consider the handles: if you choose the latest ‘handleless’ opening you can match it with an oven that has a glass handle or no handle at all, in order to give the composition continuity. You can then accentuate this linear styling by choosing an induction hob with no knobs, with touch controls.
Sink can be in steel or in synthetic materials; in this case you can risk squarer and more minimalist shapes; or an “undermount”, with an attractive design and very much in fashion, or even sinks with ultra thin edges that simulate the same effect but at a more affordable cost (these can also be fitted on laminated worktops).
