There are obviously a number of different styles of kitchen but choosing the one that suits your particular tastes and needs (as well as those of your family) can be tricky to say the least. We’ve taken a look at three very distinctive design styles which will undoubtedly appeal to you depending upon your character and what you wish to do in your kitchen, the hub of any family home. For those who like things designed to suit their specific needs, a modern design of kitchen is the perfect way to go. Whether it’s with appliances, storage, or furniture, modern kitchens can be designed specifically for your needs and tastes, which make them very efficient places in which to cook and dine.
Glossy surfaces like granite or stainless steel can give the look of a professional kitchen, even in cheap kitchens, for those who fancy themselves to be the next TV chef star. These shiny surfaces reflect light and, with suitable lighting, can really add to the vibrancy of the room. If you prefer a more traditional look, maybe a classic country kitchen style would suit you best. This is a far more relaxed style of kitchen that is based on old French rural homes in which practicality is the key.
Making the room feel friendly and welcoming is important to this design, so this is the style for you if you enjoy entertaining family and friends in a relaxed atmosphere. Bright, warming colours are typical of a country kitchen, with yellows and oranges often associated with this approach. For those of you who prefer the styles of days gone by, a retro kitchen is a great way to stand out from the crowd. There are some styles that never go out of fashion and many of those come from the 50s and 60s. Bright blues and reds on cabinets, with classic retro chrome handles look great in contrast to natural white walls. Of course, the black and white check tiled flooring is an iconic retro look and is still used today in modern kitchens. If you want to check that your colours won’t clash when designing the different aspects of your kitchen, get hold of an online kitchen planner to help with the visualisation. Whatever kind of chef or entertainer you are, there will be a kitchen style that will suit you and your needs, so be sure to put a considerable amount of thought into this crucial decision.
