With New Year fast approaching, it’s the perfect time for New Year’s resolutions. And while many people will be thinking about joining a gym, or losing weight this January, choosing to transform your home could be the more successful option. And a home transformation should always begin with the kitchen. After all, the kitchen is the hub of the home. Here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen design experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to choosing a new kitchen this New Year.

Choosing a new kitchen this New Year

A new kitchen can be the best way to transform your home. Kitchens can be incredible design features for any home, and a new kitchen can lift up the rest of your property. So what type of kitchen should you be looking for? Well, there are many to choose from, including:

  • Contemporary kitchens- sleek and stylish, contemporary kitchens use sleek glossy surfaces, and cupboard doors that are often handleless. These contemporary kitchens are based on basic design principles, emphasizing straight lines and plain edges, with no major designs or embellishments.
  • Traditional kitchens- these are perfect for period properties or homes with a more traditional feel. The cupboards and cabinets are often embellished with beveled edges to add visual interest, and your fruit bowl wont look out of place on the side!
  • Rustic/country kitchens- with a lot of charm, rustic or country kitchens typically use a lot of wooden and natural features to create a warm and welcoming environment. Colours like pale green and blue, yellows and orange can also be used effectively throughout a country kitchen, unlike the more neutral contemporary or traditional kitchens.
  • Shaker kitchen- Shaker kitchens are similar to traditional kitchens, but without the embellishments. They use all natural material, including natural handles and accessories.
