Shape: What we really mean here is the use of curves or straight lines in kitchen design. Curves are most significant in classical and traditional kitchens, where softer edges is the key trend. Curves are also popular in modern style kitchens while for a contemporary look, sleek sharp lines will stay in vogue. Contemporary kitchens need sharp lines to distinguish themselves from even modern kitchens, with slimline worktops and end panels adding that finishing touch.
Materials: Kitchen tiles can be ceramic or porcelain, both of which are more than adequate for domestic use in your own home. Glass mosaic tiles are also suitable for use in the kitchen as a decorative border or stylish splashback. Kitchen floor tiles need to be a stronger material (still ceramic or porcelain) as there will be more traffic and daily use.
Door Design: In the past few years, kitchen door designs have become much more simplistic. For contemporary kitchens, the trend has moved towards flat panel doors with no detail. An extension of this is the move towards handless doors, and this is going to continue in 2011 with many more homeowners choosing handless kitchens. Even with classical or traditional kitchen styles, the door designs are more simple than before, with many designers using shaker style doors, even with in-frame kitchens. This gives off a very classic bespoke look.
