When it comes to contemporary kitchens, sleek and stylish are probably the two words that first spring to mind. Contemporary kitchens are designed with function and practicality as the top criteria, so straight edges and simplicity are two trademark features. But for any kitchen, in any home, its important not to forget about the personal touches that bring real character to your home. So how can you add warmth to your contemporary kitchen, while sticking to the design style? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design professionals. From contemporary to traditional styles we have something to suit every home, and every theme. And this is our guide to designing a contemporary kitchen with warmth.
Add warmth to your contemporary kitchen
So, how can you bring character, personality, and warmth to your contemporary kitchen? Well, there are a number of things you could consider. These include:
- Add wooden elements- Wood is a naturally warm material that can evoke strong emotional connections and responses. From a wooden worktop to timber effect floor tiles, there are a number of ways to bring natural wood into your kitchen. And this can help to soften the glossy tones and almost clinical edges with a natural feel.
- Choose curves- adding a curved edge to your worktop, your cabinets or even your sink can help to soften the otherwise strong edges in a contemporary kitchen, and add a more unusual but striking visual effect. This can also help your kitchen feel more warm and welcoming.
- Use warm colours- plain white kitchens are still the number one choice for properties across the UK, but you can bring colour into your design with painted walls, and tiles, or you could opt for coloured cabinets. Choose a colour scheme that allows warm colours to be used throughout, including luxurious reds and purples and deep blues.
