Contemporary Kitchen

Select Kitchens walk hand-in-hand with you to design and renovate your dream Melbourne contemporary kitchen.

The simplest way we can describe Contemporary Kitchens is ‘of the present time’.

Contemporary Kitchen Design

What made a kitchen design, contemporary in the 1970s is far different from what makes a kitchen design, contemporary in the 2020s.

And the challenge in defining what a contemporary designed kitchen means in this presentation comes from the ever-changing nature of designs.

In this era, popularity comes from warmer colours, charcoal tones/ accents and premium fine wood grains. 

This could mean a light white kitchen with woodgrain cabinets that display a horizontal grain. Or grey stone kitchen island benches a concrete style appearance. Or large tiled splashbacks. Or slim and simple handles. The list is endless.

Variances occur in the finer selection of colour tones, as well as skewing towards warmer hues that add to a homely feel in your kitchen. These serve as the foundation of the current contemporary kitchen style.

Melbourne Contemporary Kitchen 

During our contemporary kitchen design process, we utilise open plan design principles that work towards being simple yet elegant.

We focus on blending aesthetically pleasing practical lighting with materials, kitchen features & cutting edge kitchen products like:

  • Frameless kitchen cabinetry
  • Basic flat doors and panels
  • Benches that are spacious and uncluttered, can be used as dining space
  • Hardware which is both large and simple
  • Basic slab designs, minimal and no fuss
  • Ample lighting using latest design pendant lights
  • Modern kitchen stainless steel appliances integrate seamlessly with their surroundings

A Contemporary Natural Relaxed Style

Furthermore, during your dream contemporary kitchen’s renovation, we provide you with a wide selection of premium stone slabs and flooring materials such as…

  • Corian Stone
  • Acrylic Solid Surfaces
  • Caesar Stone
  • Concetto Stone
  • Motivo Stone
  • Marble
  • Quantum Quartz
  • Natural Quartz

Custom Designed Contemporary Kitchen Styles

Whether you desire a modern kitchen arrangement for epicurean cooking, a design for entertainment or a multi-purpose style, our artistic designers make bespoke concepts that are tailored to your tastes, day-to-day needs and budget.

Our award-winning artistic kitchen designers consider the following points when designing your contemporary custom kitchen plan:

  • Spatial efficiency and practicality
  • Ergonomics
  • Aesthetics
  • Suitability
  • Budget and Quality

Key Design Cues of  Melbourne Kitchen with Contemporary design

When creating Melbourne contemporary kitchens, some people like to go for subdued, natural colours; others like to incorporate splashes of teal or lime to add bright colours naturally.

  • Kitchen cabinets with neutral colours such as grey kitchen colour are the safest bet for general appeal while still staying stylish
  • The colour of the cabinetry can work as the base in the colour palette for other surfaces too
  • Contrast can add a unique touch to the other elements in the kitchen
  • Think out of the box and use bold colours
  • Lighter colours below and darker ones above can give your kitchen an uplifting look
  • For a more striking effect, use subtle colours mixed with bold cabinetry

Contemporary style kitchens can also be blended with other kitchen styles, creating more options for you such as contemporary country kitchens.

However, if contemporary kitchen design is not your style, Select Kitchens can assist you with other kitchen ideas like a classic kitchen concept, modern kitchen design, French Provincial or Hampton style kitchen.

We had such a wonderful experience with Select Kitchens. Not only were they amazing to work with and extremely... professional, they went above and beyond to ensure the job was completed on time. They completed our two bathrooms and kitchen, making them look exactly how I had imaged, but for a reasonable price. Everyone we dealt with was lovely and clearly experienced.Would highly recommend them and will use again!read more

Very unprofessional and unpleasant experience. The sales person and the company owner treated us with contempt simply... because we asked to have our kitchen done by the date that was agreed on at the signing of the contract and we wanted to withheld payments so that they can do their work. Schedules seemed to always change without early notice. And we were fooled on the price of our kitchen which was done $10000 more than what the actual price should have been as we found out from their competitors. Never will use their services and i will make everyone within my community aware to not use their more

The staff at Select have been so professional, courteous and helpful. Their designer really nailed the brief -... designing a unique, modern kitchen that still looks right at home in our very 1970's house, without looking kitsch. Their builder and the whole team made the renovation process so easy - always very considerate, friendly and polite, very clean and efficient workers. The quality of their work is fantastic. The whole build was straight-forward and stress-free. Thanks guys - I love our new more
