I want you to do the following: close your eyes and imagine a modern kitchen. What type of image do you conjure in your mind’s eye? I bet it’s a sleek design, a handleless space that’s clean, functional and minimalist with un-interrupting features and pops of colour!

I think you and I are on the same page. Modern kitchens are aesthetically pleasing and can reflect the beating heart of your home. If you’re looking to design a brand-new kitchen but aren’t quite sure where to start, we’ve put together 5 simple design ideas for you to debate when it comes to your new modern style!

The colour pop

Having a sleek white kitchen is a fantastic way to brighten up a room. To add that additional modern twist, have bursts of colour come from accent pieces around the room. Some ideas to consider could be having a bright blue knife block, or a beautiful red fridge which acts in stark contrast to the beautiful white.

The minimalist approach

A clear room means a clear mind. A minimalist approach doesn’t have to be applied to just your kitchen; it can also be applied to your way of life! Handleless kitchens are the perfect backbone to any minimalist design with smooth surfaces and hidden storage in every nook!

The open concept

Having a kitchen that opens out naturally into the dining room or living room is perfect for the cook who loves to socialise. Prepare the starters whilst your guests chat to you from across the kitchen island! Do you have kids? This is a great way to keep an eye on them without any walls to block your view!

Dark and stormy hues

Why not flirt with the idea of breaking the mould? From bright and light to dark and luxurious, the seductive allure of a black, navy or dark brown kitchen can show off your elegance and sophistication. Add a little drama in the kitchen by experimenting with black countertops, chrome chairs and dark matt accessories!

A Parisian appeal

Fresh, vibrant, luxurious, what else could you ask for when it comes to your kitchen? Parisian chic works well if you have a small kitchen area to play with and can look bright and green with accent plants and hanging baskets. Stylish and homely come to mind when we see these kitchens!
