The chalet decor is a mountain hut style with lots of wood, stone and other natural materials, which means that it is very cozy and very welcoming. When you design a room in such a style, you get a very welcoming space that you never want to leave. A chalet kitchen is a nice place to cook, eat, have conversation and overall cook. How do I design one? Here are a few ideas.
Styles, material and color palettes
Every chalet is about wood and stone, in any interpretation you like. It can be traditional, with more vintage furniture, a large fireplace, stone slabs, and a stone wall. It can be contemporary or minimalist, with sleek cabinets with no handles or knobs, with built-in appliances, and a stylish hood. It can be rough, with lots of rough wood and stone, with all natural decor and design, and of course you can mix up the styles the way you see it.
The color palette is usually quite natural: different shades of wood and stone, you can add concrete, different types of marble and bricks, for example, dark metal. You can also be non-traditional and rock a very bright chalet kitchen to make it feel fresh and flooded with light, or a dark, moody chalet kitchen with a touch of masculine design.
Furniture and appliances
As for furniture, you usually have kitchen cabinets and you can vary to have upper and lower cabinets or just prefer lower ones and rock a large window for a mountain view. A kitchen island may have a dining area – a raised countertop – and can also be used as a dining area. Build in some gadgets or prefer bold ones that go with the style and are fun!
