As mentioned, designing a contemporary kitchen is about more than the fixtures and fittings you choose (thought these are important, too). What’s at the core of a contemporary kitchen is a space that can function as the hub of the home with plenty of space for engaging and entertaining.
The way we use our kitchens is evolving, with a desire to create open-plan spaces designed for entertaining taking precedent. Maximizing natural light is (arguably) the key to designing a contemporary kitchen that fits this new-found requirement. After all, light has the capacity to make a space feel brighter and more spacious – particularly when paired with an all-white scheme – which will make it a more pleasant place to spend time.
One of the trends that will stand out in 2019. A feature for any kitchen brought in as a backsplash or a floor tile. Ceramics can add a retro or modern vibe to your kitchen. They are in for 2019, but we cannot guarantee how timeless this trend will be. With the improvements in digital printing technology, we should be seeing more advanced tile patterns in the next few years.
Kitchen design professionals refer to the sink, stove and refrigerator as the kitchen triangle. It’s the area of greatest activity, so designing a kitchen triangle requires careful planning and unobstructed access. Of the three, the sink typically sees the most action, though your triangle should also have easy access to the stove and refrigerator, as well as your countertop workstations.
Regardless of your kitchen’s size or layout (L-shaped, galley, U-shaped or island), the sum of all the legs in a work triangle should not be less than 10 feet or greater than 25 feet. If the work triangle is too small, people will be tripping over each other. If it’s too large, food preparation could be a tiring task.
Starting a kitchen design project to save money is a common mistake; it can actually waste more money, time and energy if you do it wrong. Professional designers have the latest ideas and information, and they can help you identify your needs and translate them into an efficient plan that fits your taste and budget.
