Does your kitchen feel a little bit out of date? In some cases, your kitchen could be as old as your house and look every year of it. Some older kitchens can really stand the test of time, others with less timeless features start to show their age before too long. You wouldn’t wear the same clothes that you did in the 90s, so why should your kitchen? If it fits the style of your home, a sleek, modern kitchen could be just the thing your home needs.

When it comes to kitchens, the terms “modern” and “contemporary” are often used interchangeably. “Modern” can refer to a particular style, whereas “contemporary” just means the style of the time. What people usually mean when they use either is that they want a more up-to-date kitchen, one not in a traditional style.
There are no strict rules when it comes to designing a contemporary kitchen, but the following are some features you’re more likely to find in kitchens not traditional in style:
Flat panel cupboard doors - traditional kitchen cabinets feature ornate doors with protrusions to add extra detail. In contrast, more modern kitchen designs feature subtle, sleek doors to tie into their minimal design. Modern kitchen cabinet doors also usually feature understated stainless steel or chrome handles.
Minimalistic design - modern and contemporary kitchens tend to place more focus on clean lines. This means flat panels doors, discrete fixtures and appliances, and no one feature overpowering any of the others.
Bold colours - you don’t have to have bold colours if you opt for a contemporary kitchen design, but there is room for more daring colour choices than with traditional kitchens. Instead of being limited to soft earthy tones, you can express yourself with a dark kitchen, duck egg blue kitchen, or even all white or glossy.
One of the main benefits of choosing a bespoke contemporary kitchen is the freedom you get in choosing the features. If you don’t have to stick to a specific style you can mix and match bits that you like to get something truly unique to you.
Of course, being given free rein could make for some unsightly kitchens, but we’ll work with you to make sure all the elements of your future kitchen work together.
Have a look at some of our contemporary kitchens to get a better idea of what we can do for you:
Don’t need your entire kitchen redone? In some cases, just a few small changes can make a world of difference. As well as fully fitted kitchens, JMT also offers worktops, splashbacks, and kitchen cabinets, even introducing new doors can enhance the look within a kitchen. So if there are any additions you’d like to make to freshen your kitchen up, let us know and we’ll see how we can help.
Because we’ll give you a kitchen that’s simply something else. All of our kitchens are bespoke and handmade, so your new contemporary kitchen will be unique to you.
After you arrange a free visit from JMT, we’ll come by to measure up and discuss with you what you want. We’ll look at your budget and work out how to give your new kitchen at a price that you’re happy to pay.
We’ll look at how much space you have and also what will go on in your kitchen so that every eventuality is covered. Want to enjoy breakfast on a kitchen island unit? We’ll make sure there’s an overhang for legroom. Fancy yourself the next Mary Berry? We’ll make sure you have worktops that are easy to clean flour off.
Our team will keep you up to date with how your kitchen is coming along, so you’ll never be in the dark about how long’s left.
