5 TIPS TO GIVE YOUR KITCHEN A FUNCTIONAL-MODERN LOOK

Creating your perfect modern kitchen is a thrilling part of your new home design. The kitchen is the heart of a home, so it is important that you create a space that you love and feel comfortable in.


Whether you're partial to an all-white design or live for a pop of colour, there's nothing like a sleek, modern kitchen.


Many manufacturers offer different variations - from ultra-modern, minimalist mix of eclectic furniture fronts traditional and modern functional kitchen. But combining individual elements of the kitchen together can be difficult.




We have compiled a list of 5 tips to transform your kitchen into a modern yet functional one.



1. Choose an inspiring colour palette


The colour of the kitchen can not only add to the ambience of the house, but also plays on the mind of the people in there.

The kitchen world is moving away from white cabinetry and people are incorporating coloured cabinets.


The right colour palette can dramatically change the feel of your space. This is a personal choice and statement for everyone.



Tip 1 – To achieve a cool tone for your kitchen, use bright hues for the wall and appliances, contrast them with dark bench-tops or cabinetry. To achieve a warmer tone, use browns or other neutral like grey giving a cosier look when the family comes together.



2. Appliances on display


We couldn’t stress more about the ideal positioning of kitchen appliances as modern kitchens are all about being sleek, clean and minimalist.


Keeping most of the bench top clear is a good idea to add to the organised look.



Tip 2 - Another way to achieve the sleek look is by hiding large appliance like the Fridge and the Dishwasher in a cabinet space.

3. Open Plan all the way


If you have set your mind on creating a modern style kitchen, avoid confining it to a single room.


An open feature really adds an attractive feature to the house giving it a spacious feel.



Tip 3 – if you are regularly entertaining guests an open plan can achieved by breaking a wall and combining the kitchen with the dining room.

4. Consider Natural Lighting


Having ‘enough’ lighting in the kitchen is what adds to the functionality of the modern kitchen while meal-prepping or cooking.


There is nothing better than natural light, incorporating windows into the kitchen area makes it feel it airier and more open, helping you cruise through your daily tasks.



Tip 4 – If natural lighting is not an option and you want to add some glam, combine white and gold adding glitz without the fuss.


5. Wood is Good


All modern kitchens don’t have to incorporate sleek engineered stone and laminates.


Don’t be afraid to add some timber or a timber veneer with a concrete splash back with white bench-tops giving an extremely trendy and homely feeling.



Tip 5 – using wooden flooring with white cabinetry is a good pairing style for achieving a modern look.
