A Modern Kitchen with a Traditional Feel
Finding a hybrid of traditional materials and modern design elements to create a homely and welcoming kitchen for socialising and family.
This kitchen is just a few doors up from the other bungalow in Disley in which we fitted a modern Image Gloss kitchen. With this, we knew the layout and style of the property well and so could advise on design and installation logistics accordingly.
The couple wanted a dedicated space for socialising and for the kitchen to support their socialising spaces – namely the dining area and outside patio looking over the canal.
For the design, the couple wanted a modern feel but they tend to lean towards more traditional materials. So with this, we designed a hybrid using traditional materials such as the oak doors and granite worktop, but designing in curved corner units and longer drawers to give a modern feel.
The worktop is a 30mm granite – a traditional, standard depth worktop would be 40mm – so the slightly thinning lines enhance the modern feel of this kitchen.
Generally speaking, thinner lines and wider drawers give a modern feel and look to a kitchen. Whereas deeper worktops, cornice and pelmets, and smaller (but more) drawers are rooted in a traditional, classic kitchen design.
We made customised cornice and pelmets on site as the kitchen range from our suppliers come with a traditional, deeper design. By making 20mm thick cornice and pelmets it again enhanced the modern feel of the room, whilst still utilising the traditional materials.
Whether you’re looking for a modern or traditional, shaker-style kitchen, we can work with you on the design to create a hybrid as many homeowners want the homely feel of traditional kitchens, whilst also having a modern 21st Century feel to their home.
