In modern homes, the kitchen is not just for cooking. A changing home dynamic and purposeful design have adjusted the way we use and interact within our kitchens. The kitchen is now considered the heart of the home – they're dynamic spaces where the family can come together to share a meal, the place where friends can meet and socialise, or just a great place to relax and unwind.
Whatever the kitchen style you want in your home: be it the ultra modern, sleek and stylish, a traditional charm or simple elegance, let homify help you create a kitchen that fulfils its potential. Here are some of the trending kitchen ideas that have caught our eye:
It's amazing how a little bit of colour can change the whole dynamic of a room. Here we see a splashback used to introduce colour to the kitchen. The bright and vibrant shade of green interplays wonderfully with the metal sink and wooden benchtop. Don't feel limited to just splashbacks – colour can be introduced in many other ways. Even a brightly coloured benchtop, appliance, or even lighting, can give your kitchen a splash of colour it needs.
Design experts from Devol Kitchens have focused upon utilising natural light to create a sense of openness. There is a tangible airy lightness to this room. Notice how the white shade enhances the kitchens subtle features and provides a clean contemporary look. The choice of unassuming appliances and kitchen items immerse into the style of the room. We especially love the tasteful copper coloured hanging lighting which add that little bit of spark.
Unifying the exterior to the kitchen is another fantastic way of adding a special dynamic to a kitchen. From this perspective we can see how the kitchen has been connected to the outdoor area. Retractable panel doors create the sense of openness and promote movement between the different areas. No need for dominant colour shades or quirky design features, connectivity and openness really is the main feature of this kitchen.
Finding the balance between an industrial look and managing to create an environment that is warm and inviting - LWK Kitchens prove that the warehouse look can be achieved whilst retaining that comforting home feeling.
This space really does stimulate the senses. A white, black and grey colour scheme gives the kitchen a certain unity, whilst the top end appliances really give this kitchen a certain wow factor. The flooring choice is intriguing, and really adds to the genuine warehouse feel.
Even when working with the tightest of spaces there is a chance to be creative. Those awkward cabinet corner sections can be a real nightmare to work with, but the clever minds at Tim Jaspen have built a custom cabinet drawer that really works with the angles. The drawer is pulled out to reveal a generous amount of usable storage space. We can see how certain ingenuity can make any space work!
Looking for something a little more traditional in style? Here we see white cottage-style cabinetry being used in a modern kitchen make-over. Glenlith Interiors LTD have recreated a coveted old charm that draws a sense of comfort from a bygone era. There is a generous amount of storage space provided by the beautiful cabinetry. Detailing on the cabinets enhance the room's cottage feel whilst the inclusion of contemporary stools is a clever contrast that gives the room a part vintage – part contemporary feel.
