The art of living is embodied in the kitchen and it takes centre-stage as to where a family’s lifestyle starts.
According to Forbes’ magazine, the kitchen is the most important room in your home
in every way, but especially as a luxury statement. The art of living is embodied in the kitchen and it takes centre stage as to where a family’s lifestyle starts. Houses listed with “luxury kitchens” sell faster than similar properties unable to boast this design feature.
Commissioning a true luxury kitchen means not having to accept limitations.
Consumers want a broad range of product, finish, and colour choices, so where better to start than with Poliform at onepercent? A meeting with Charis Mallia,
Operations Manager, is an education and a pleasure. Charming, multi lingual and
unflappable, she is currently juggling a number of new developments and
refurbishments, across Malta, for both national and international clients.
Poliform, an iconic Italian brand and company, began life as an artisan workshop
and is today a benchmark for superb organisation of inner space to create the most
beautiful external aesthetic. Function with form you might say.
As a number of their clients are not based full time in Malta, the service offered by
Poliform caters for both the time starved and the absent homeowner, as well as the
dedicated homeowners looking to create a beautiful and functional kitchen.
Understanding the client’s desired use of the space is essential for a successful
design and onepercent’s team of qualified designers ensures that this is a given.
Once format and purpose of use are established, the joy of choosing begins and
what choice there is.
Sophisticated luxury can take many guises and kitchens have fashions. However, the
idea of timeless elegance never goes out of fashion, so use of material is key. Charis
points out that the external finishes such as glass, wood and marble are universal
favourites but the visibility and perfection of the wood grain for surfaces, the
satisfying weight of drawers with solid maple, internal cutlery trays, the curve of the
glass doors on cabinets to create reflection and light play are all hallmarks of
onepercent’s kitchens and it is these features that show the true luxury of the
finishes. This is investment shopping for your home.
A classic open floor space, as in most Maltese apartments, allows for the kitchen to
be intrinsic to every part of life: from a quick breakfast to a smart dinner to a large
party, the ‘island’ is integral to this flexibility. The surface of the island - whether
wood, marble, glass or steel - is cut at an angle to create an elegant silhouette and
clever lighting creates moods as well as providing the practicalities of seeing what
you are cooking and eating
LED lighting has really taken over task lighting in the kitchen for its energy
efficiency, cooler temperatures, and longer lamp life. Poliform go one step further
with internal lighting to cabinets - both storage and display – to create an ultra-luxe
ease of use. Mix this with handle-less doors, wine refrigerators, integrated coffee makers and a spectacular spice rack and even the most uninspired cook will relish his
or her new environment. Functional items - hobs, sinks, taps, hibachi and
refrigeration all are seamlessly integrated into the beauty of the design scheme to
give the client the ultimate kitchen; and with a range of worldwide Poliform
showrooms as well as the team in Malta, it is luxurious ease all the way.
