Buying a Contemporary Kitchen

Factors to consider for modern design

Magnet Kitchens Nova White

If you’re looking for a brand new kitchen with a more modern look, you’ll have a wide range of contemporary styles to choose from.

You can adapt a contemporary look to suit your home and a good design will reflect both the function and style of your kitchen.

Looking into colour schemes is a good place to start in kitchen design. Whilst monochrome is a timeless choice, you can give it a modern twist with smooth, high-gloss textures accompanied by metallic hardware. Magnet’s Nova White is accentuated with the sleek silver of the cabinet handles, an extractor hood and a Neptune tap for a gleaming contemporary feel.

Bring your kitchen into the 21st century in style, with a unique grey and copper colour scheme. The impact of Magnet’s Newbury Grey kitchen is down to its moody mid-grey matt finish, complemented by on-trend copper handles and accessories. The combination is so chic it will be a guaranteed talking point in your home.

Minimalism is often synonymous with a modern kitchen style, so try to keep your space clutter-free. Magnet has excellent options for subtle storage, including the Plinth Drawer, a neat little storage option that makes use of otherwise dead space at the bottom of your units, with a streamlined appearance.

The Cabinet Plus Innovation is the ultimate in stealthy storage. The cabinet is located at the back of your units and slides in or out of sight at the flick of the switch. This innovation is as much a conversation starter as it is a functional storage space. Modern technology like this is another great way to create a kitchen that personifies contemporary design.

Finish and texture also play a large part in the contemporary style. Aim for smooth lines and sleek surfaces that can be achieved with stone worktop surfaces and glass splashbacks for example.
