When it comes time to remodelling your kitchen or if you are building a new home and you need some design inspiration for your kitchen, most of us choose modern. The crisp white of a minimalist kitchen combined with colour offers a stylish and sophisticated area that you can be proud of, but where do you start.
You need to bear in mind that if you have an older home or a cottage style home, a modern kitchen may not be the right choice for you. When remodelling your kitchen you need to look to the future, if you will sell your property at some stage in the future your home will need to appeal to potential purchasers and if your purchasers are looking for a cottage style home, the kitchen no matter how beautiful, can easily put them off.
The first step in designing a new kitchen is to look at the space you have to work with. Often adding an extension or knocking down walls to make it larger and open plan are necessary. Do you want a centre island or do you intend having the kitchen wrap around the walls? Is your kitchen going to be the heart of the home where the family gather at meal times or where most of your entertaining will take place?
If you love entertaining then a centre island is a useful tool cutting off the kitchen from the dining area while enabling you to chat to guests while you add the final touches to an exciting meal.
When choosing your appliances you need to ensure they blend in with the décor of the kitchen. When choosing a white kitchen to keep it modern with shiny pure white cupboards, choosing black or silver appliances will ruin the entire style of the kitchen. When choosing white as your main kitchen colour, then choosing white appliances will complement the space.
Choosing counter tops can be a daunting process, there are so many to choose from. Choose from the white that will blend in with your décor to concrete and marble, you will need to decide how modern you want your kitchen and whether you want to follow the white theme throughout or try something different such as the concrete, which is the new favourite when it comes to modern designs.
Splashbacks are when you get the chance to add your colour; most modern kitchens look fantastic with a bright red splashback or a lime green. Adding the colour just gives your kitchen that finishing touch of life that you need when going minimalist and modern.
Choose your splashback carefully; it needs to compliment your kitchen while blending in with the rest of your home, www.glasssplashbackuk.co.uk/ has a wide selection for you to choose from to give your kitchen that final touch to make it completely spectacular.
