As the heart of any home, it makes sense that the kitchen is ‘the room homeowners most frequently remodel’.
When it comes to refurbishing your kitchen, there are numerous kitchen design styles you can opt for depending on your needs and preferences.
Honing in on a particular kitchen style can be difficult if you’ve never planned a refurbishment project before.
If you’re looking for inspiration for kitchen design styles, we’re here to help.
Popular kitchen design styles include, but are not limited to:
1. The contemporary kitchen
2. The country kitchen
3. The traditional kitchen
4. The coastal kitchen
5. The industrial kitchen
While the contemporary kitchen seems like a broad style, it’s maintained its position as one of the most popular choices for kitchen renovation projects over the years.
Modern kitchens showcase a range of notable characteristics, from open floor plans to space-saving storage solutions.
Popular design features of a contemporary kitchen include everything from sleek cabinets to mixed chrome hardware to smart appliances that feel so futuristic you won’t believe you’re in your own kitchen.
Modern kitchens owe much of their clean and polished appearance to sleek cabinets, usually in colours such as white, black, or grey.
From smart ovens to voice-control lighting, smart appliances also fit seamlessly into a modern kitchen and can greatly contribute to making your life as easy as possible.
Another kitchen design style you can explore with your design and build company is the country kitchen.
A well-designed country kitchen should be the epitome of a calm and cosy space, and somewhere you can sit to relax and take the day off.
Common features might include hardwood floors, glass cabinets, and exposed pots and pans that contribute to a comfortable living space.
In terms of appliances, classic is the way forward for a country kitchen, with many often boasting a porcelain, brass, or stainless steel classic range stove.
Additionally, a quintessential feature of a country kitchen is a porcelain country sink.
If you’re looking for a more classic kitchen design, then you might prefer to discuss the option of a traditional kitchen with your contractor.
Traditional kitchens often include features such as natural wood cabinets and neutral tile backsplashes that work wonderfully to create a calm and classic space.
Bringing it back to the basics allows you to put your own stamp on your kitchen in other ways, such as adding homely decorations that make your kitchen look and feel like it’s your own as opposed to a showroom straight out of a magazine.
By keeping things simple, then, you can emphasise the natural beauty whilst also prioritising the functionality of the space you have.
Next up is the coastal kitchen design. This style of kitchen is designed to evoke and emulate a relaxed atmosphere that you’d likely feel by the seaside.
The colour scheme for this style of kitchen is light, with light wood and lightly coloured cabinets, with colours such as white, light brown, and different shades of blue taking precedence to resemble seaside colours.
From rattan furniture to linen curtains to exposed wood, the finishes of a coastal kitchen are designed to ‘bring the serenity of the seaside into your home’.
Whether you live by the beach or just want to create a space that makes you feel like you do, opting for a coastal style is the perfect way to create a serene kitchen.
Last, but not least, for a highly contemporary kitchen, the industrial kitchen is a great option.
Boasting stainless steel appliances and concrete kitchen countertops, an industrial kitchen is one of the most low-maintenance designs you can opt for.
From exposed brick to wood beams to concrete worktops, and open floor plans that allow natural light to shine throughout your home, an industrial kitchen strips a space back to basics effortlessly whilst still maintaining a contemporary look.
Whichever kitchen design style you go for, having an open line of communication with your chosen design and build company is essential to ensure that you are on the same page.
