CONTEMPORARY KITCHEN FINISHES
Contemporary kitchen design is often described as minimalist, functional and very modern. The style is often characterised by a preference for man-made materials such as stainless steel sinks, worktops or splashbacks, laminate flooring and frosted glass inserts to create a sleek, unfussy appearance with clean lines.
Available in a vast range of different style and colour choices, our contemporary kitchens are not only exceptionally well made, they offer versatile solutions for any home and any type of property. Take the Tavola Cinnamon kitchen, for instance. It’s light and airy, with curved doors and a modern cornice, but given added depth with the unique horizontal grain of the Tavola design.
The Odyssey kitchen is a bold but beautiful colour choice that will add a real wow factor to your home. The sleek brushed chrome handles on the kitchen units are full width, adding to the contemporary appeal.

Contemporary Kitchens FAQs
What does a contemporary kitchen look like?
There are several ways to distinguish between a contemporary kitchen from other styles. Contemporary kitchens can be modern in style, but they can also incorporate features from other styles too. A contemporary kitchen uses design styles of the moment, using cutting-edge appliances and technology, to develop a minimalist look that’s clean and efficient. Contemporary kitchens use the latest technology and advanced appliances, such as built-in coffee makers, induction stovetops and higher-performance extractor hoods.
This style of kitchen often uses materials we know and love in new ways too, such as glass or concrete countertops, to achieve a stylish and unique look that’s also practical. One of the most common signs of a contemporary kitchen design is the use of layered materials with plenty of texture, such as mixing wood and stone, or layering shapes for a decorative effect.
What is the difference between modern and contemporary kitchens?
Modern and contemporary terms are often used interchangeably, but there are differences between these styles. The kitchen is the heart of the home, so it needs to be a space for multitasking – where you can cook, entertain, work and relax.
While contemporary kitchens are characterised by their sleek, minimalist layouts which are almost artistic while also being functional, modern refers to a design movement of the early 20th century which embraced clean lines and an extensive use of natural materials. By definition, contemporary trends are of the moment and eclectic time as a result.
Which colours work well for contemporary kitchens?
There are several colours which work well with contemporary designs. White contemporary kitchens are popular as they are sleek, modern and offer a neutral base for other colours, but black and grey can also work brilliantly.
Blue contemporary kitchens, such as teal or turquoise, are also increasing in popularity, as this shade works well with wood worktops or cabinetry, or stone counters. However, you can make any colour work well for a contemporary style – sticking to a monochromatic colour scheme is a great way to use colour in an elegant yet current way.
How can I achieve a contemporary kitchen on a budget?
There are various ways to achieve a contemporary kitchen look without a huge budget – from considering the appliances you truly need to thinking about how you’ll use the space, you can create a layout that works for your home and your budget.
One way to keep costs down without losing out on the aesthetic you want to achieve is by changing a few key features without renovating the whole kitchen – for example, you can switch out cabinetry for a handle-less design, update your worktop for a stainless-steel alternative or use glass splashbacks for a sleeker look. Another way to affordably adapt your kitchen to a contemporary look is to avoid structural alterations, whether that’s making the room larger or move electricity and gas metres or piping which can bump up the price of your renovations considerably.
