When it comes to kitchen design, we at Homematas are Preston’s leading experts. So we know what we are talking about in terms of contemporary kitchens and making your kitchen designs a reality. As a result, we have produced this guide to planning and creating a contemporary kitchen.
One of the stand out features of contemporary kitchens is the streamlined design and sleek finishes. This counts for both the work-surfaces and the cabinets. So when you are planning, make sure you research and aim to create a handle-less kitchen, with a high gloss finish with straight edges and no decorative features.
In addition, designing and creating a kitchen doesnt just stop with the work-surfaces and the cabinets. The tiling too is an important part of the kitchen design. And again, this needs to stick to the streamlined, glossy design.
Second on the agenda when planning and creating a contemporary kitchen is the colour range. Neutral colours that do not make a statement are popular for contemporary kitchens, including white. However, this can be bland and instead you can inject some personality with just a hint of colour. Especially with a high gloss finish.
If you would rather create a bold and vibrant contemporary kitchen, and avoid the potentially clinical feel, opt for coloured cabinets in one strong colour like red, purple, or blue.
Whichever style you opt for, vibrant or neutral, make sure you stick to plain and simple appliance and fixture colours. Otherwise they tend to stand out and detract from the streamlined design you are working hard to create.
An effective colour guideline to follow outlines:
- 60% of the kitchen in one dominant colour
- 30% a of the kitchen in a secondary colour, and
- 10% an of the kitchen in an accent colour.
