Trend alert: Modern Luxury

Discover the modern luxury trend’s contemporary twist on timeless opulence

Want to have the most Insta-worthy kitchen on the block?

The modern luxury kitchen styling trend combines sleek, refined lines and bold, rich hues with opulent touches for an exquisite yet thoroughly contemporary look that all your neighbours will want to copy.

Your choice of kitchen cabinets is key with this look, as it’s all about creating a sense of drama. Deep midnight blue or darker grey tones are the perfect choice to add impact to the room, but opt for a matt finish to keep the look understated and tasteful. Traditional shaker style cabinets or sleek slab doors work equally well with this trend, so you’re free to choose the style that works best within the wider décor scheme within your home.

Once you’ve decided on your kitchen cabinets, next think about complementary hues for the walls and decoration within the room. Pair cabinets in deep tones like petrol blue or dark grey with feature walls and furnishings in softer shades like blush pink or muted mustard to create contrast.

Next, match cabinets in darker hues with splashbacks in a pale marble effect or glossy metallic tones, matched with worktops in sumptuous natural stones like marble, quartz and deep granite. Using these luxury materials will create a sense of timeless elegance, while contrasting dark and lighter tones will add an extra element of drama to the room.

The fixtures and fittings in your kitchen are also a brilliant way to add a subtle hint of character and opulence. Instead of the usual silver-tone sinks, taps and handles, try warmer tones like rich copper, antique bronze or brushed gold to stand out from the crowd.

It wouldn’t be a luxury kitchen without sleek technological gadgets either, so why not treat yourself to a built-in wine fridge or coffee maker, or upgrade to Samsung’s connected kitchen appliances to save yourself time and energy in the kitchen.

Finally, to put the icing on the cake for your gorgeous new kitchen, accessorise with jewel-tone soft furnishings in plush velvet, designer geometric light fixtures in sleek metallic copper and striking monochrome crockery. After all, the modern luxury trend is all about embracing the finer things in life!
