5 Must-Haves For A Contemporary Kitchen

Ever dreamed of having a chic and stunning kitchen in your home? Think sleek lines, glossy finishes and minimal clutter. Well there's a way you can create a cooking space that’s modern and functional, no matter how big or small your kitchen may be. Here are 5 must-haves to achieve a contemporary kitchen... 

Streamlined Units

Keep things fuss-free and minimal by going for cabinets with sleek, even finishes. Opt for a slab design in either matt or high gloss, to create a sleek blank canvas. Alternatively, if you fancy something with a little more warmth, consider one of the high-quality veneer finishes that are on the market. Stick to long bar handles that will replicate the even lines of the cabinets, or even better, choose handleless doors instead. 

Slick Splashback

There are so many options for kitchen splashbacks nowadays, that it’s easy to find one to match your style. If you’d like something more streamlined than the usual tiled option, consider going for coloured glass. These smooth glossy panels are great for adding a shot of colour to a white kitchen and the reflective surface gives the impression of a light and spacious room. You could also choose a stainless steel splashback, which looks particularly stunning behind a cooker.

Stylish Storage

For an uncluttered look in your contemporary kitchen you’ll need some great storage. The key to planning storage is to declutter first, so go through all your kitchen cupboards and be ruthless. Once you know what you’ve got, you can choose the perfect drawers, cupboards and shelves to store it all. Wide drawers are a brilliantly efficient way to store pans and crockery, while narrow pull-out cupboards can make use of small niches.

Great Gadgets

Add some extra functionality to your modern kitchen with a gadget or two. Maybe you love a smoothie in the morning, so a Nutri Bullet might be the perfect gadget for you. Or perhaps you love a slowly cooked casserole, in which case a Slow Cooker might be the perfect pick. 

Lavish Lighting

Lighting is crucial for getting your contemporary kitchen design right. It needs to be practical and good-looking at the same time. Use undercounter LED lights to create a warm ambience in the cool, slick space, as well as to provide functional task lighting on the work surfaces. If you really want to make a statement, add a modern pendant light to illuminate the whole room and for a striking design feature in the centre of the space.
