Designer kitchens is all about getting the very best in kitchen design and quality. White kitchens will continue as the most popular colour choice for kitchens but we will see softer and alternative variations of this style.

And their flexibility helps you bring pin-sharp contemporary design to any environment.

Within the 1980’s, new developments in design took place that echoed the ambitions of the Bauhaus and Frankfurt kitchens in designing creations to facilitate the housewife in cooking and completing kitchen tasks with the upmost ease and efficiency. Given how highly effective this utilitarian design is, definitely take it into account when considering kitchen designs. As with Bauhaus, the Frankfurt Kitchens had continuous worktops and integrated units.
