If you’re looking for something understated or contemporary, then a kitchen or bedroom that takes advantage of modern style principles and trends could be right up your street. Open, light, minimalist and clean are key to a modern feel. Below we will explore which styles to consider.
Slab (flat) doors are one of the most effective ways to achieve a modern design. Their lack of texture or pattern provides a minimalist appearance and, due to this, they can be used in virtually any finish without looking out of place, which gives you unmatched flexibility and choice. Slab doors work especially well for fitted wardrobes, allowing it to be cleanly integrated as part of the wall.

Using handles is old hat. There are a huge number of styles available these days which can eliminate the need for them at all. Handleless doors provide a flat profile and a convenient way to open the door. One of the most common styles is a J-pull, named due to the J shape of the groove which is built into the door. These offer an easy-to-use, full-length way to open the door.
Another style of handleless doors is the true handleless configuration, which allows you to make any door handleless. This is done through the use of a handleless rail, which is recessed into the unit and allows you to reach in and pull the door from the back. The choice you have in this style is unmatched, due to the ability to use a slab, shaker or any other style you could think of.

Another unique way in which the kitchen or bedroom can be made modern is by omitting doors altogether. Open units with shelving are a great way to make your room stand out from the ordinary design. They remove the cost of buying doors and hinges, which lets your budget go further. The great thing about this is it can be mixed in with other styles, allowing some units to be open and others closed, which can really improve the variety and individuality in your bedroom.
Gone are the days of creams and oaks, a recent modern trend is using a bold colour. Bedroom & kitchen manufacturers have finally caught onto this, and the number of choices is large, ranging from dusky pinks to indigo blues, you’re sure to find one that piques your interest. These can then be paired with a complementary wall and tile colour, or if you’re very brave, a contrasting colour. The great thing about this range of stylish colours is the uniqueness you can bring without adding many patterns or clashing textures.
