Traditional kitchens with a modern twist

traditional-kitchen-modern-twist

The comfort of a classic traditional kitchen adds a warm and cosy heart to any home. And while quality craftsmanship and materials are the key to their success, traditional kitchens can easily be tailored to include a pleasing, contemporary touch as well.

In this article, we explore some of the best ways of creating beautiful traditional kitchens with a modern twist.

Modern materials in a traditional setting

Chrome, glass, Perspex – and even concrete – can be surprisingly attractive additions to traditional kitchens, adding interest and texture that plays wonderfully against the moulding and fine details of a classic room.

Bring modern materials into the room in the form of counter-tops, cupboard handles, cupboard fronts, and panelling, to break up the overall look.

Say contemporary with colour

One of the quickest and easiest ways to add a modern twist to your traditional kitchen is with colour. A quick lick of paint in a fresh, vibrant shade, or elegant wallpaper with an eye-catching print can really transform your room. And it’s up to you how far you go – you can opt for an all-over injection of colour, or make a feature wall really pop.

If you’re looking for a less permanent solution, or if you’re not 100% sure that a wall of colour is for you, why not opt for a splash-back or panelling in bright, easy-to-clean glass or Perspex? Alternatively, stools, utensils or seat covers in a lively shade can lift a room from traditional to modern with a twist!

Contemporary Kitchen Appliances and Furniture

Sometimes, just a few modern touches can be enough to give your traditional kitchen a different feel. From chic fridge-freezers and extractor hoods in brushed chrome to statement lamps and bespoke LED spots shining through glass-front cupboards, there are plenty of ways to bring a high-tech touch to your traditional room.

The same goes for furniture: sculpted plastic chairs juxtaposed against a solid oak table; a bright, oversized clock above a traditional mantle; or some dramatic planters with spiky, tropical foliage – little touches like this can have real visual impact.

And if you prefer to keep your kitchen looking traditional but performing like a high-spec modern kitchen, we have a wealth of stylish kitchen appliances from leading brands like Neff and Quooker that can be fitted discreetly into your home.

Led by Design: A Sleek, Luxurious, Contemporary KitchenDesign was of paramount importance for Derick and Mandy when it came to choosing a kitchen company to replace the kitchen in their Barrowford home.They approached three other kitchen companies but Kitchen Design Centre and Designer Suzanne Ryan were the obvious choice: Kitchen Design Centre's design focus, instead of a heavy sales approach impressed them and they were delighted with Suzanne's first design, feeling she understood the brief to create a high-end kitchen.Suzanne changed the layout of the kitchen space completely. Their existing kitchen lacked flair, consisting of a peninsular-based layout which resulted in a lot of wasted space. She totally reconfigured it, creating a much more open space and introduced a large island in the middle of the kitchen which not only creates a focal point in the room but also provides the perfect dining area.To read more about this project, head to the link in the bio.
