1. Use ceramic for a modern kitchen

Ceramic has a very clean and elegant finish, giving your kitchen a very glossy look and feel. It also features a very smooth surface.

2. Install quality counter tops

Use materials that support high temperatures and are easy to clean. Polished concrete is an excellent and economical choice. For more refined tastes. we recommend marble or granite.

3. Use small appliances to make the most of space

Say goodbye to heavy tools in the kitchen and start using small utensils that are practical to clean and easy to store.

4. Make the most of the corners to create the kitchen of your dreams

Use shelves to keep your kitchen organised. If you have limited space, install shelves and cabinets so that you can organise your cutlery, crockery and appliances more adequately.

5. Install a kitchen island with storage space to save space

Kitchen islands are a very modern and savvy addition to the kitchen, providing the area with extra storage space as well as an extra surface area for cooking or preparing food.

6. Glass is a wonderful material for the kitchen due to its practicality when cleaning

Having a glass-lined counter top provides a unique glow to a kitchen space. What's more is that you only need soap and water to clean it.

7. Install flashy elements like lamps and tables full of creativity and unique design

One of the most important factors in a kitchen is lighting. This is a functional element that also illuminates your creative design.

As we can see in this design, steel is a great choice.

12. Choose materials that add value to the environment

Granite and steel are wonderful options. It doesn't matter if your kitchen is large or small, you can choose materials that will stand out.

Granite, for example, can be chosen according to your favourite colour.

The kitchen bar subtly separates the small kitchen from the rest of the home, without cramping and crowding the area.
