How to Create a Contemporary Style Kitchen
A contemporary kitchen style can perfectly complement a new build home and add a touch of modern elegance to a period property. It is often said that the kitchen is the heart of the home and in the latest blog post from Cooker Solutions, we take a look at ways you can create a contemporary kitchen style.
When it comes to a contemporary style kitchen, you’ll want to keep the colour scheme fairly neutral. By sticking to colours of the same pallet, you are able to accentuate certain areas or features of your kitchen design with pops of colour, which can later be changed to suit your style.
A contemporary kitchen wants to look sleek and modern, so use neutral colours to avoid adding a barrier to the eye and keep an open plan feel.
For decor, think glossy ceramic tiles which will work well to bounce light around the space, keeping it feeling bright and spacious. Splashbacks are a great way to add colour to the kitchen and also a statement feature.
The type of flooring you choose for your kitchen will often depend on the amount of space you have available. However, if you are on a budget, a top tip would be to use vinyl flooring that has the appearance of more expensive materials, such as wood or tiles.
To create a contemporary style kitchen, you’ll want to use integrated appliances which are neatly tucked into units, hidden from view. An exception to this will be your oven, which can often be made into a focal point in the kitchen area.
Integrated LED lighting is often used in contemporary kitchens as a point of interest, and to add a cosy vibe to a modern space that can sometimes be viewed as cold or bare.
