How do you take an outdated kitchen and place it into 2017?
Creating a modern kitchen style doesn’t mean completely ripping out every cupboard, tile and appliance you have. Sometimes it can consist of making a few choice additions to your room. You would be surprised how the little things can make a massive difference to how your home is perceived.
This week in the Kitchen Warehouse LTD blog we want to have a look at a modern kitchen style. Not just in regards to what it is, but how to actually achieve it.
So, lets look at how to get your room into 2017 with some small and large upgrades
Handleless Kitchen Cupboard Doors
It is no secret that handleless kitchen cupboard doors give off that ultra modern look. What else provides a contemporary design like this?
For a start they just look sleek. Without the handle there is a real slimmed down feel about these doors. They look fantastic in any kitchen but they really add that complete stylish look to a room that you want to be modern.
Given the range of colours and shades that you can buy handleless kitchen cupboard doors in, there isn’t a design out there that they won’t fit seamlessly in with. If you want to create a modern look then this is a good starting point.
Remove The Clutter
Modern kitchen’s aren’t meant to have loads of appliances and items on the worktops – they are made to be clutter free.
This is method that you can use where you don’t actually need to purchase anything. Remove as much as you can from the work surfaces and store it away. In fact, why not use some smart storage solutions so you can find everything you need in a hurry?
This isn’t just a way in which you can create a modern kitchen style, it has many practical advantages as well. It sets a calm and spacious environment in which to cook and prepare food. The idea of filling your kitchen worktops with appliances and things that should be stored away have no place in a modern design.
Use Darker Shades
We always seem to come across the idea that a kitchen should be bright, airy and full of light colours. With a modern style you can go a bit wild and incorporate a lot of colours that wouldn’t ordinarily be used in this room.
Black and grey are two colours that work really well in a modern kitchen. Far from making the room appear dreary or depressing, they actually provide a cutting edged design that works to great effect. Most people think of brown wooden colours and whites when it comes to kitchens but the opposite is true in a modern environment.
You can even contrast these darker shades with striking colours such as red for a true contemporary style.
Install Smart Appliance
Finally when you aim to create a modern look you need the new appliances to go with it.
A kettle that you can control the temperature and turn on/off with an app? What about a smart oven that uses a camera to look at your food and determines the best way to cook it by setting it’s own temperature and time? You can even get a fridge with a built in camera for those times when you are out shopping and can’t remember if you bought milk yesterday or not.
The possibilities are endless.
Creating A Modern Kitchen Style
It doesn’t take a whole lot of effort to transform your kitchen from one that looks outdated to a completely modern design.
Start by adding in handleless kitchen cupboard doors, move onto changing the colour scheme to a darker tone and then supplement all this with smart appliances. Get rid of all that stuff on your work tops as well.
It only takes a few steps to create a new kitchen style and make your family and friends jealous of your new ultra-modern home.
