Contemporary kitchens are normally described as modern and minimalist with characteristics including horizontal lines, asymmetry and minimal ornamentation. Space and light are hugely important to create a sense of space, as is the use of high tech gadgets and materials. Glass, steel, chrome and gloss finishes bounce the light around the room, while concrete and exposed brick can inject a functional, almost industrial ambiance.
Contemporary kitchens design encompasses styles from the 1940’s to the present and the materials used tend to be man-made rather than natural.
When designing a contemporary kitchen there are lots of questions to think about. Is there enough storage? Where will you put the appliances? Have you chosen the right lighting? But more importantly, what sort of design suits you and your family? We spend a lot of our time in the kitchen, beaten only by the bedroom, so it’s crucial that the kitchen works both practically and aesthetically for our lives.

Think carefully about what you want from a contemporary kitchens design so that the space works just the way you want it to. White units keep the space bright and their high gloss finish is easy to wipe clean. Quiet, muted colours determine the direction of design. The kitchen setup will gain expression and life through ingenious combinations of colours, materials and a sophisticated surface feel.
A pop of colour – whether on a piece of furniture, a bowl of fresh fruit or in a vase of flowers ensures that your contemporary kitchens design still feels warm and welcoming. You want a contemporary kitchen design that blends style and function for a space that is cutting edge yet still inviting.
