Whether you’re planning a kitchen remodel or renovation, or simply want to spruce up your existing space with new lighting, rugs or decor, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in the beautiful kitchen design ideas below!
However, when creating a kitchen there are lots of elements to think about. Is there enough storage? Where will you put the appliances? Have you chosen the correct lighting? Will you proudly display pots and pans, utensils and ovenware, or will you tidily store them all away? But more importantly, what sort of design suits you and your family? We spend 12% of our lives in the kitchen, beaten only by the bedroom, so it’s crucial the kitchen works both practically and aesthetically for our lives.
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.
Instead of tearing out your upper cabinets, try updating your kitchen wall decor by placing one or two floating shelves on an open wall. Floating shelves come in many styles and are easy to install. Keep the floating shelf display items minimal and color-coordinated for a magazine-ready look.
Although it’s not necessarily a mistake, the latest kitchen trends and high-end equipment may not be the best choices. Trendy colors and designs have a short lifespan, and you may never see a return on your large investments in the latest kitchenware. Look for kitchen innovations and appliances that are timeless.
Don’t write off your dream of having a stylish, contemporary kitchen, just because you’re working with a smaller space. Almost all of the tips and tricks we’ve shared can be incorporated into a small kitchen with a little thought and design know-how.
