Here at Kitchen Design Centre, we pride ourselves on being at the cutting edge of design. Our stunning range of contemporary kitchens catches the eyes of customers all over the North West, and in this week’s blog post, we’re taking a closer look at what’s on offer in terms of contemporary kitchens in 2014.

Is a contemporary kitchen right for your home?

Whether you’ve just moved into a new house, are looking to change your interior, or you’ve realised your kitchen has become outdated, it may be time to invest in a new kitchen.

While the prospect may sound daunting, bringing to mind stark kitchens full of stainless steel and razor-sharp edges, modern kitchens are all about maximising space and minimising clutter while incorporating beautiful shapes and textures.

The clean, sleek designs of our contemporary kitchens can be fully customised to include features that you’ll love, from natural materials to elegant curves, making your kitchen a room you love spending time in.

No kitchen is an island

But a stunning island or peninsula can be a brilliant addition to a contemporary kitchen.  Having an island or peninsula incorporated into your kitchen layout is a sure-fire way to transform the space within the room.

Islands and peninsulas have a number of functions: they can be used as preparation areas, breakfast bars, cooking and storage space and more.

And, when coupled with an eye-catching designer island cooker hood, a statement pendant light or an unusual counter-top, an island or peninsula can provide a stunning point of focus in your room, even if the rest of the design remains quite traditional.

Wall to Wall

One of the most common complaints about kitchens is the lack of space.  No matter how many cupboards and drawers we have, there always seems to be a need for more!

Making the most of wall areas is one way in which kitchens can benefit from having additional space, and our contemporary kitchen designs are brilliant for incorporating extra storage without resulting in a cluttered and claustrophobic feel.

By stacking units from floor to ceiling, making the most of space around ovens/grills, integrating large appliances and being savvy with hidden storage space, you can still enjoy a kitchen that feels sleek and spacious.

Additional Living Spaces

Kitchens aren’t just for cooking, and a contemporary designer kitchen can be customised to include space for homeowners to entertain, socialise and relax.

Additional features such as sofas, breakfast bars, break-out spaces and cubbies can bring added value to your home, both in terms of financial value and functionality.  The talented team here at Kitchen Design Centre can help you make the most of your contemporary kitchen space, so why not head down to one of our showrooms today for a free, no obligation consultation?
