The modern style is probably the hardest style to define. It can be a combination of smart design ideas with flat surfaces and horizontal lines, cool colour schemes and interesting or extravagant features. These kitchens are often integrated with technologically advanced hardware, elegant materials and the latest designer European appliances.

On the other hand it can be the pure simplicity of some designs that make a kitchen ‘modern’.

A modern kitchen can have the cabinets flow through into the living area to create a kids area, a desk or multimedia unit.

With a modern design you can be as creative and unique as you like.

Type of doors:
  • Flat surface doors with the optional finger pull to make the kitchen handle free. Mostly with a gloss finish.
  • Reconstituted stone, stainless steel or laminate. Thickness can vary from 20mm to 60mm or more with sharp edges.
  • Use of the same material as the benchtops.
  • Painted glass.
  • Powder coated aluminium composite with the optional print applied to it.
  • Mainly stark white with a gloss finish, often combined with reds, bright yellow or blue or sometimes black.
  • Standout appliances, stainless steel or completely glass fronted.
  • Rangehoods can be hidden away in overhead cabinets or be wall mounted.
  • The use of prints and bright colours. Features in earthy materials such as concrete and veneer are becoming more popular within this style. This is a great option to make a modern styles feel cosier.
  • Built in LED lighting with motion sensors and optional dimmers.
  • Thick, floating shelves.
