Modern Kitchen Elements
Putting tastes and styles aside, the main priority for those looking to upgrade their kitchens to a modern one is the technology. With advanced kitchen technology making a substantial rise throughout the market, the advancements of innovative appliances and high-tech kitchen accessories are becoming increasingly sought after. This technology incorporates clean and minimalistic styles which are highly practical.
Modern kitchen designs are focused on space saving and optimisation of existing space and storage, the use of high-tech appliances helps to achieve this. With options of handleless cabinets, under counter lighting and bespoke kitchen furniture, you can achieve a spacious, stylish and modern kitchen which is both practical and efficient.
Depending on what materials you choose, you can make your kitchen truly modern with the right kitchen worktops. Modern kitchens are all about simplicity and ease of use but they should also be strong and durable with minimal maintenance. While Granite worktops are still a popular choice, many people are now opting for stronger, non-porous and minimal maintenance materials. Quartz worktops are a great alternative to Granite as they look similar but Quartz is non-porous, extremely hard and durable and they also give you flexibility to work with during installation.
Corinan worktops also offer you ultimate durability and strength and they are very easy to maintain. Your choice of worktops depends on your budget and needs but keep in mind, that a modern kitchen should be easy to use, clean and requires minimal maintenance. Choosing a worktop that needs a lot of care and maintenance could be more trouble than it’s worth.
Handleless Doors and Cabinets
Due to the sleek and minimalistic designs of modern kitchens, handleless doors and cabinets are a must have for today’s current trends.
Handleless kitchens feature innovative designs and smart storage options which enable you to optimise your available space. Handles are becoming increasingly outdated, they can be deemed unattractive and can make your kitchen look cluttered. Handleless doors and cabinets can make your kitchen look smooth, clean and minimalistic.
As well as being safer, cleaner and easier, handleless kitchens can also provide you with the added benefit of various storage solutions. They are a great way to integrate appliances and hide them into the décor; appliances such as ovens, washing machines, bins and fridges can be hidden into or behind doors and cabinets to give your kitchen a spacious and airy feeling. This gives you more freedom to use the extra space for additional seating or the ability to add more personal touches to your design.
Colours and Styles
A modern kitchen often consists of simples colours and styles. As the saying goes ‘less is more’ this is very true with a modern kitchen. It is important that you avoid patterns and styles which are too busy and complex, as this can make your kitchen appear cluttered and unwelcoming.
Choose colours which will enhance the light in your kitchen, extremely dark or dated colours can make your kitchen appear smaller and enclosed. Popular colours for today’s modern kitchens are grey and white, the shade of these colours can be chosen to your preferences but it is a good idea to choose a shade which will enhance your space and work well with your flooring and lighting.
Hardware and Appliances
Modern kitchens usually have hardware and appliances to match. It is important that you upgrade your appliances such as cookers, fridges and lights etc so that they are modern and fit in with your new kitchen. There are options of modern sinks and faucets such as: waterfall taps, pull down taps and hot water taps which are becoming popular in today’s present day kitchens.
With sleek hardware to match your décor, it is best to choose smooth and clean styles with colours such as silver and chrome. It is important to focus and these appliances and materials so your kitchen blends well together.
