Modern lifestyle and design tendencies connect kitchen with other social areas, creating open, clean, multifunctional space with fluid motion between different functional zones. So, contemporary kitchen must combine function, aesthetics and technology.
Though the general feature of all modern kitchens is minimalism, there are a lot of ideas to get your kitchen have that personalized look.
Natural materials are still in the focus. Natural wood and metal accents from brass and copper play the main role in many design projects.
Luxurious marbles return to modern design scene. Whether used as a floor covering, backsplash or for countertops, marble gives the timeless and luxury effect.
Searching the personalized color or color combination can be a beautiful adventure. The main thing you should remember is that color in the kitchen is something that will last for long term, and its main function is to create comfortable atmosphere.
Natural woods like walnut are still winning. Warm hues that remind outdoors like blacks, browns, grays, and beiges are on-trend in 2020.
If you are looking for some modern ideas of color, pastel tones, deep blue, all shades of ocean green, dark green color have big influence in 2020/2021 season.
Experimenting with dark colors can give your kitchen luxe and dramatic effect. There is a variety of combinations to express your style in dark colors. You can use black cabinetry, work surfaces, or black walls in combination with natural wood, warm chocolate colors and smoky glass. On the other hand, black is often used in metal framing and appliances accent.
If you want to add some glamourous glittering, golden accents will do it perfectly. Golden taps, or golden sink, mirrored glass with golden hue will give that luxurious touch that you look for.
Because kitchen is exposed to the dining and living room area, handleless kitchen cabinets remain one of the biggest trends.
Technological advances in push-pull mechanisms means that it has become possible to hide handles in both wall and base cabinets. If you prefer not to have push-open cabinets, then recessed handles provide the same sleek look and can be lined with contrasting colours and materials to add interest.
Clever concealed storage
We need to store plenty of things in the kitchen, so storage is a must in the kitchen.
These can include: appliances, drawer dividers for cutlery and utensils, pull-outs for spices, tray dividers, roll-out trays and caddies for pots and pans; as well as wastebasket cabinets for garbage and recyclables and/or deep drawers. These will make it easier to store foods, drinks and small appliances.
Open shelves and showcases
Open shelves provide an opportunity to create a real gallery aesthetics. Thoughtfully displayed collections of dishes, mugs, boxes, whatever your heart is will give your kitchen a personalized and sophisticated touch.
If you do not want to compromise and choose only one style, there are lots of opportunities to create your unique kitchen. By playing with tones and textures, mixing finishing and adding accents you can create your personal style, including traditional, industrial or vintage elements.
