Three of 2018’s best modern kitchen design ideas

One of the most fascinating things about kitchen design is that it never stops evolving. Every year brings new trends and ideas for you to incorporate into your kitchen, and we’re passionate about being the people to help you do it! So far in 2018 we’ve seen some fantastic ideas for modern kitchens emerge – sometimes from the minds of our very own designers! Here are the favourites which have captured our own imaginations – have a look through, and see what you think!

Take the edge off with curved worktops and islands

There’s lots to love about our modern designer kitchen for Mr and Mrs Hall, including its stunning range of powerful Neff appliances, and its truly captivating red accents. Another of the kitchen’s most striking aspects, however, is the curved wooden breakfast bar attached to the central kitchen island. It’s a particularly uncommon feature, and creates a fascinating focal point for the whole kitchen. It’s practical, too – an ideal option for smaller kitchens, as it gives you more room to manoeuvre round the space without having to worry about bumping yourself off square worktops.

Lift your kitchen’s look with floating shelves and storage units

Floating midi units are a particular favourite of our designers here at Kitchen Design Centre, and we know exactly how to use them to create a stunning final effect. In this family-centric kitchen, our designer Simon Thomas used wall-mounted floating midi units to enhance the contemporary feel of the space, fulfilling a key requirement for our customers Tracy and Simon.

Floating midi units have an inherently minimalist style, making them a popular choice for modern and contemporary kitchens. Apart from giving the kitchen an undeniable wow factor, they also increase the feeling of space in it too, which can give you valuable breathing room in modern kitchen designs that might otherwise seem too cluttered. Floating shelves and storage units alike are also particularly appealing in open plan kitchens, as they soothe the transition from the living area to the cooking space.

Be more black-and-white with a monochrome kitchen design

Colours can really help you put your own personal stamp on your kitchen – which is something we’re very passionate about here at Kitchen Design Centre! When it comes to colours, you’ve got a huge range of choice – from blue to red to purple – and all this means that it can be easy to overlook simple but striking monochrome styles. Monochrome colour schemes like this one are often underestimated in their ability to give kitchen an air of effortless sophistication – a fantastic complement to modern and contemporary kitchens alike. You’ve got plenty of options when it comes to the various shades involved, too. Darker shades can add a touch of drama to your kitchen, whereas lighter tones can brighten up a space, enhancing any natural light flooding in.
