Are you tired of your current kitchen setup and want to blow some new life into it? AfriKitchens is your answer for modern kitchen design solutions. With us on your side, you can enjoy that on-trend look and feel with a brand-new design and layout that suit your needs and preferences. Today, we will be looking at some trend-setting elements of a modern kitchen design in 2021.

Utilising Various Materials

Modern kitchen designs utilise various materials that are sourced from different origins to create a kitchen that looks and feels unique. Whether it is recycled metals, light/dark wood, or marble, these elements can be cleverly worked into the design to add something special in your kitchen. Mesh cabinetry is another modern trend, using wire mesh cupboard doors to add a little twist as opposed to conforming to regular wood grain or painting them a solid colour.

Creating Bold Contrasts

One of the key elements of a professional modern kitchen design is to create contrasting areas. Worktops and cupboard doors would usually contrast each other in colour, for example, the worktop counter would be a dark marble and the cupboard doors would be a light wood grain. The wall colour and cabinet door colour can also be used to create larger contrasting areas. Modern kitchen designs lean toward bold and brave colour schemes, and with us on your side, the sky is the limit.

Kitchen Islands

Modern kitchen designs can also incorporate an island into the design and layout, implementing a sizeable worktop counter in the middle of an open space in the kitchen. This counter can function as a worktop for cooking purposes and can also double as a counter where you can sit down and enjoy a light meal and beverage. These island counters will match the height of the rest of the kitchen counters, which is normally a standing height. Therefore, barstools are a common sight in kitchens with island counters.
