How To Create A Modern Kitchen

Updated: Feb 21, 2023

The latest contemporary kitchen designs are a simple and sophisticated option for transforming your kitchen into a modern space. A streamlined, contemporary kitchen design combined with integrated appliances is the perfect way to create yourself a new modern kitchen.

Go for clean lines

If it’s a modern, linear space you’re after, then handleless cabinetry is for you. Our Schüller ranges of handleless door cabinets with a clean-lines for a very modern aesthetic. In smaller kitchen spaces, the absence of handles helps to make a room feel bigger, while in a kitchen with lots of cabinetry, it prevents an overload of handles. The smooth, sleek handleless appearance is extremely popular and it's easy to see why.

Stay neat

The key to modern design is a clean, uncluttered feel to work surfaces. Hiding kitchen clutter, particularly in open-plan kitchens is essential, so plan in plenty of storage with deep pan drawers, tambour units to keep small appliances, crockery and china out of site. Floor to ceiling cupboards can hide a multitude of sins so if you have space, they’re a good investment. Remember, though, for your kitchen to work efficiently, you’ll want easy access to all these things when you do need them, so we recommend siting pan drawers by ovens, larders close to prep areas and china close to the dishwasher.

We work with luxury worktops such as Silestone and Dekton that are now producing man-made composites that look like natural materials. Of course, while they can look just like marble or concrete, the real benefit of these surfaces is that they are much easier to look after than natural stones, particularly very porous ones such as marble. They’re also fabulous for creating feature splashbacks to match your worktops.

Adding Appliances

Modern kitchens really are about clean lines, and that goes for appliances, too. Integrate as many appliances as you can and if possible, place items such as washing machines and tumble dryers in utility rooms. Keep sightlines clear by installing simple below cabinet, in-ceiling or pop-up extractors rather than fancy hanging pendants, keep fridges and freezers behind closed doors and invest in good-looking, hardworking built-in cooking appliances and a sleek glass zoned induction hob. Finish off with a few modern-day luxuries such as a boiling water tap offered by Quooker, pop-up power points and cool lighting.
