Phillipa Marion November 12, 2019 Kitchen
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.
Although it can be a big investment, a good ventilation system makes cooking and dining more pleasant, especially if your kitchen opens to a living area or family room.
We’re not sure we’ll ever be tired of Mid-century modern interiors, which makes them the perfect point of inspiration when designing a contemporary kitchen. We love the pairing of this stylish (and very Mid-century inspired) dining set with modern appliances and and otherwise sleek, minimalist interior.
To make the task of a kitchen refurbishment a little less daunting, we have asked a number of interior experts to share their favorite kitchen designs with us. From contemporary and modern designs to rustic and Scandinavian trends, here are plenty of beautiful kitchen design ideas that will help you create the perfect heart to your home.
Nothing says contemporary or minimalist quite like an all-white scheme. Simple, yet effective, this stand-out scheme makes a real design statement (as long as you can keep it tidy).
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.
