FOCUS ON…Classic contemporary kitchen

25th Apr 2019

A classic contemporary kitchen design gives you an elegant, stylish look with a modern twist.

Seamlessly merging classic design features, such as panelled door fronts, cornices and mantels, with contemporary materials and state of the art appliances gives you a great contrast between old and new. While classic kitchens traditionally use muted colours, the classic contemporary trend embraces colour, so we see more two-tone kitchen designs with strong greys and blues mixed with the more muted colours, bringing the design right up to date.

This kitchen design in Exeter is the perfect example of classic contemporary kitchens as it mixes elegant shaker doors, cup handles and a mantel with a more modern island, breakfast bar and bold blue hague colour. It has all the latest appliances and Quooker Flex boiling water tap which contrasts perfectly with the traditional Belfast sink. This design really makes the most of this light airy room, tall ceilings and age of the property.

The classic contemporary design must still streamline worktops and clutter; people love to hide everything away for a clean look when having dinner parties and coffee with guests, so a functional larder unit is perfect because it looks traditional and beautiful but has space and organisation to hide food, condiments and small appliances away.
