A Modernistic Lookout Into A Contemporary Kitchen:
|A perfect example of a Cutting-edge Contemporary Modular Kitchen.|
According to definition, modular design is an approach that subdivides a system into smaller parts or modules that can be independently created and then used in different systems to drive multiple functionalities.
"Contemporary" typically means of the moment or current, the design that prevails in the very moment. Contemporary kitchens can be modern as well, but they can also have elements of other styles. When I think of what makes a kitchen contemporary, it most often includes cutting-edge design and technology and use of new trends and materials. To be more luminous, let’s say today we are being more focused on the contemporary style kitchens and its subservient attributes. The most popular designs nowadays are found to be contemporary in design and form while some are even modern, all the more they become interesting as we see how functional and wieldy they are.
With more of us choosing open-plan living, the kitchen has increasingly become central to the look and feel of our homes. In order to play to your kitchen’s strengths and boost its designer appeal, you must start off with proper planning. Simply follow the following steps:
• Planning Your Layout
• Color & Finishes
• Fixtures & Fittings
• Contemporary Design Features
• Joinery & Hardware
• Adding the Wow Effect
• Ensure Maximum Compatibility & Functionality

An informal dining area, centered around a table or island unit, defines this as a flexible living space. Many modern kitchens are open-plan, featuring distinct zones for cooking, eating and lounging. An island unit can act as a boundary between these areas, creating a subtle division.
The principle of maximizing light and space is all-important in the modern kitchen and this is achieved with a combination of generous storage and plenty of reflective materials. Glossy white cabinets, stainless steel veneers, and glass or mirrored back-splash all help to bounce light around the room. Meanwhile, curved corner units can be used to create a streamlined look and handle-free cupboards keep the finish clean. Within a pared-back scheme there’s room for carefully chosen dramatic pieces. At its most simple, the focus might be limited to bold taps or a show stopping floor-lamp, but the decor of modern kitchens has become increasingly striking. From glamorous engineered surfaces to the uncompromising industrial ingredients of concrete and steel, design is more confident and extreme than ever before.
During the initial concept stage of planning a kitchen, talk with your kitchen designer about what you want and how you use, or would like to use, your kitchen. He or she can then assess the space to establish the best layout for achieving that, effecting a smooth flow from one work zone to the next. Essentially, kitchen zoning is based on a designer’s knowledge of aesthetics, usability and efficiency, but the beauty of this approach is that there’s room for flexibility.

it makes a noticeable difference!
New technology and modern materials are included to varying degrees in contemporary kitchens, but features such as a beautifully integrated composite sink, the reassuring safety of an induction hob or the sense of luxury created by soft-close drawers and cupboards are particularly appealing.
Professionally-inspired elements include extendable spray taps and units ‘wrapped’ in stainless steel. The breakfast bar has evolved into an overhanging table, making island units an even more versatile choice. When a modern kitchen is more adorned with texture and pattern, it goes contemporary. The glass tile, concrete counter-tops, whimsical lighting and bar stools add another layer. Finally, as TVs, speakers, laptops and sofas firmly establish themselves in the kitchen, it’s clear that this is a place where comfort, functionality and innovative style work together.

Contemporary can be soft, earthy and eclectic as well. The funky modern light fixture in the foreground contrasts with the different tile materials on the island and back-splash and the muted counter-top surface.
Add Personality to Your Kitchen - Quirky little details, unexpected ingredients and smart styling help give a kitchen its own identity. A little imagination and some inventive styling can softly steer this room toward a look filled with personality. Make your kitchen work-space stand out with colored ceramic tile, back-painted glass, butcher block, a cozy banquette and room for lots of cookbooks in a stunning shelf. A boldly graphic wall and soft lit cabinets can create a strong focal point in the kitchen area.

Against a minimalist white cabinetry, colored LED lighting along the floor and under the upper units adds ambiance, interest and depth. You can change the hue of your multicolored system to suit the mood or occasion. Programmable LED lighting lets you restyle your kitchen at the touch of a button.
Create a gallery. With plenty of white, reflective surfaces and masses of natural light, a kitchen can be the perfect place to display art. Showcase your taste and personality, whether that’s quirky and kitsch or classic and refined. Consider creating a gallery wall, being careful not to position it too close to the sink or stove. As an add-on, employ the rule of three. For accessories such as vases or canisters, display them in odd numbers, in particular three, for maximum style and impact. This simple design trick can elevate your kitchen from ho-hum to hello.

Don’t forget to add the ‘Wow Factor’ to your kitchen! There’s more to getting a fabulous kitchen than designing and installing it. It's the little details that elevate its overall look and appeal. Remember, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication!

When a graphic designer and an architect put their heads together on a kitchen redesign, the result is a stylishly simple space with improved functionality and upgraded amenities. If you are not confident enough, the better idea is to consult and hire experts to avoid wastage of time and money, in other words to avoid repetitive experimentation to reach your envisaged imaginary semblance. Think before you embark on the creative venture and don’t risk it to start off without a master plan. Good Luck!
