Modern Kitchens

Modern kitchen design dates back to the 1950’s, a design movement that embraced clean sleek lines and simplicity. However we generally think of simple sleek lines, minimalist decoration and linear layouts, all combined with the latest technology in both materials and appliances.

Simplicity is the key to a modern kitchen, allowing the natural beauty of the materials to shine. Our handle-less and slab doors are the most popular choice when designing a modern style kitchen and are often combined with a granite effect or real wood worktop. Appliances are often hidden within the kitchen cupboards and hardware is kept to a minimum contributing to the minimalist look of the kitchen.

We have a huge range of doors, worktops, appliances and hardware on display in our Kirby showroom that are suitable for this kitchen style and our team are always on hand to help pick out components that will be suitable for you new kitchen design and budget.

Matching plinths and end panels complete this kitchen and all help to achieve a simple modern look.
