Contemporary and Classic Kitchen Inspiration

Your kitchen is where you will spend several hours each day which is why so many homeowners take the time to plan and invest in the perfect décor, features, and fixtures. It’s more than just a place to prepare meals. Your kitchen is also a room where the family spends time together and you probably entertain guests in this part of your home quite frequently.

When choosing the design for your kitchen, you will be faced with several options. One main choice you will need to make is deciding between a modern or classic kitchen. Your choice in style or theme will then affect all of your other choices including the type of worktops you install.

For a modern kitchen, the contrast of black and white is very popular. Perhaps choose shaker cabinet doors, sleek appliances (possibly chrome), and top it all off with some dark grey granite worktops. If you want more of a contrast, you could choose dark cabinets with a lighter natural stone worktop and dark appliances. Make sure that your floor is light so that your cabinets don’t blend into the floor.

As for the more classic or traditional approach, you might prefer using white or various shades of brown. Wood is popular and you could choose wooden floors as well as wooden cabinets paired with light cream natural stone worktops. Don’t forget to choose the appropriate hardware for your cabinets in order to suit the more traditional theme.
