Contemporary Kitchen Styling Tips
To truly get the most out of your contemporary kitchen design, you have to understand the principles of contemporary design. Sleek, seamless, and clutter-free, a contemporary kitchen draws the focus to the cabinets and work-surfaces.
The overall shape of the kitchen layout is emphasised throughout kitchen design. As a result, you also need to plan the layout.
Cabinets finished in gloss, with no texture, and a smooth edge help to create the appearance of a seamless contemporary design. Consider innovations in contemporary design including:
⦁ Sliding panel doors that have a push release mechanism, opening sliding larder pullouts with no handles
⦁ The Russian doll effect of drawers within a much larger cupboard to prevent the external appearance from being too segmented.
⦁ A solid surface design for the work-surfaces and splash-backs which will leave no joins or grouting.
When it comes to your contemporary design, keep the clutter to a minimum by:
⦁ Using a cabinet design that hides drawers and smaller cupboards inside the larger design.
⦁ Avoid spices and ingredients being placed in racks or baskets on work-surfaces as this breaks up the visual appeal.
⦁ Consider hiding the appliances like fridges, freezers and dishwashers inside the cabinet design.
