Tips for Creating a Modern Kitchen Design

Feb 20, 2023

When it comes to designing a modern kitchen, there are several things for you to consider to ensure everything comes together. We’ve highlighted just a few of them below.


Before you choose the fixtures and finishes for your kitchen, it’s important to settle on the right layout. Take a look at our previous blog post on choosing the right kitchen layout to see the pros and cons of each. Ideally, you’ll want to choose a layout that maximises space and efficiency, from the placement of your appliances through to food preparation areas.


While you may choose to opt for open storage, modern kitchen designs offer lots of options for cabinetry. Consider sleek soft-close drawers, overhead cabinets and other custom finishes, in tones that help to bring your kitchen and living space together. Remember, storage is key – you’ll want to make sure you have strong organisational options to keep everything nice and tidy.


Just like the cabinetry, benchtops play a crucial role in both small kitchens and large kitchens. Engineered stone, laminate, marble and granite are all popular materials that offer durable and stylish practicality for many years to come.


Take a look at our previous blog post about choosing the right kitchen splashback. The right splashback can make a real statement in your modern kitchen design, for all the right reasons. There are many materials you can choose from, from the tiled splashbacks in traditional kitchens, through to glass splashbacks and standout metal options.


To bring out the best in your modern kitchen, you’ll want to invest in good lighting. Make sure you have the right combination of task lighting (over your food preparation areas), accent lighting (to draw attention to cabinetry or other design features) and ambient lighting (to help set the mood).


Many modern kitchen designs now incorporate integrated appliances, which helps your dishwasher, fridge and oven to blend in with your cabinetry and other features. Our Flexi team can discuss the various ways this integration can be achieved to help you create a seamless look.
