Contemporary Kitchen Styles

Matching innovative technology, and practical and functional solutions, with streamlined surfaces and modern design, the contemporary kitchen style is versatile and appealing. It’s little wonder that more and more homeowners and landlords are opting for a contemporary kitchen design. Here at Homematas we are home renovation experts, and Preston’s leading home and kitchen company. As a result, we have produced this guide to contemporary kitchen styles.

Sleek and Streamlined

Contemporary kitchen design harnesses the streamlined, straight edged approach. Keeping things simple with no decorative flairs, the contemporary approach is striking and elegant. As a result, cupboards tend to be flat with no ridging, and handles match up with perpendicular accuracy.

This sleek and streamlined design continues with tiling in the kitchen. Using un-patterned and plain tiles with a contrasting grout can really accentuate the straight edged and square approach.

Colour choices

One of the popular colour combinations for contemporary kitchen styles is the pairing of stainless steel with white. This is because the colours are both neutral and reflective. As a result, they can help contemporary kitchens feel larger and less visually cluttered.

In contrast, coloured appliances can tend to “jump out” visually, detracting from the sleek and streamlined desired effect.

Having said that, there are many other colour choices for contemporary kitchen suites. Whichever you choose, you need to follow the colour guide lines. These are:

  • 60% one dominant colour
  • 30% a secondary colour, and
  • 10% an accent colour.

As a result, your colours will work well together and avoid colour clusters.

In summary

Contemporary kitchen styles are all about blending the practical with the minimalist. Sleek and streamlined kitchen design, with sharp straight edges and bold, sweeping curves can really wow. Especially if this is coupled with the right colour choices for the space. If you are looking for a contemporary kitchen suite, why not take a look at we can offer, here at Homematas?
