Contemporary kitchen design focuses on clean, sharp lines, while at the same time incorporating a mix of colours and finishes. When modernising your kitchen, you may wish to take a look at some of the following tips, which will help to achieve that practical, yet warm look that is so desirable for today’s modern household.
Introducing high-tech appliances is one way of creating the contemporary kitchen appearance. From built-in cookers and in-drawer dishwashers to fridge freezers, toasters, kettles and other useful gadgets in gleaming stainless steel or polished chrome finishes, these appliances will invariably generate a modern feel.
Innovative, stylish kitchen units will not only enhance the contemporary look; they will also make the best possible use of often limited space. Tall cupboards, wide drawer units and handle-free doors reflect modern design and are becoming increasingly popular. Mixing birch, walnut or oak with units in high gloss white, grey or black will enhance the sleek, yet warm contemporary feel of your kitchen.
Where space allows the introduction of a kitchen island, additional storage and/or workspace can be created easily and with style, especially if the island is topped with a modern composite worktop.
Composite worktops are available in a vast array of colours, textures and finishes. Brighten your kitchen by adding off-white, almost sandy-textured ‘Línea Astral – Lactea’ Compac worktops, or add a touch of sparkling elegance by choosing Quarella worktops in the sparkly, deep blue ‘Azul Luciente’ finish.
For a touch of warmth on the other hand, you may wish to opt for Diresco worktops in the warm-brown ‘Beach Africa’ finish. Whichever colour or texture you choose, these and similar composite work or counter tops are available in varying thicknesses and can be cut to any size or shape, making them extremely versatile.
Frost, heat, moisture, stain, crack, chip and scratch resistant and almost maintenance free, composite tops can be used in any part of your kitchen to provide additional work, dining or storage space; provide excellent value for money and offer the perfect answer to all your questions concerning modern kitchen design.
