Contemporary Kitchens

It is hard to define the contemporary kitchen style as it is a style that is constantly changing, evolving and spans many types of kitchens. Contemporary design is very much of the now and forever changing, taking some cues from modern such as the sleek clean lines however minimalist is not what you will find here. Contemporary kitchens often combine elements from the modern period with a mix of traditional elements to create a sleek kitchen that feels more liveable.

Combining shaker doors with modern on show appliances and granite worktops is a popular choice here. Equally modern gloss doors combined with wood worktops, stainless steel appliances and tiled splash-backs are equally popular, there really are no rules.
