Create a Natural Kitchen with a Contemporary Twist

Take inspiration from nature and use deep earthy colour palettes, textures and materials just like Wrenovator Aimee. By seamlessly bringing the outdoors in with our textured Milano Ultra kitchen, Aimee has created this dreamy on-trend look that’s calming and unique.

Love this look? Follow these top five styling tips so you can recreate a similar striking design in your own home, no matter what shape or size your kitchen is…

Dare to be dark

Our sleek, handleless wood-grain frontals are a fabulous option for contemporary kitchen lovers who want a dash of industrial style. Wrenovator Aimee has chosen textured Nero Grain to create a real statement.

But if you have a smaller space or lack in natural light, we’d advise lighter colours from our Elements range such as Limed or Harvest Oak. They still offer the same “wow factor”, but will naturally create a brighter and lighter room.

Adding natural texture

By bringing in multiple natural materials, it instantly creates a calming luxe look. For your worktops or splashbacks opt for Xena Quartz – one of the most stunning yet hardwearing stone materials on the market. For drama, let your worktop waterfall down your island or peninsula.

Looking to add natural accents? Then there’s plenty to add. Such as metallic bar stools, lush house plants, seagrass rugs, statement stone flooring or even add a feature wall with vertical wooden wall panelling like Aimee’s design that really ties the whole theme together.

Integrated appliances

Let your accessories and statement natural accents do the talking and opt for tall tower units to seamlessly build-in your appliances and create a fresh smart look. With our good, better and best options our expert designers can advise you on what suits your budget and needs.

For dark kitchens, choose black appliances to blend in with your design and create uninterrupted lines across your whole design. Induction hobs are one of the best sellers for island designs, as not only are they easy to clean and create a smooth-flowing look, but they use 70% less energy consumption compared to your traditional hobs.

Go handleless

Combine your natural textures with a handleless kitchen range for an ultra-modern design, it will never date and this smooth-faced range is super easy to clean.

For that designer style opt for Wren’s true handless Milano kitchen, where you can pick from limitless textured colours as well as metallic or coloured profiles. This will draw the eye to the sleek lines of your kitchen and will ooze luxury, contemporary vibes.

If you’re on a budget, Wren’s recently introduced its lush Linea range which has smooth lines and a crisp finish with copper or chrome profiles. The possibilities really are endless to create the look of your dreams.

Secret storage

The secret to a modern look is by keeping it minimal. Ensure you have plenty of clever storage solutions behind closed doors, just like Aimee’s space, which has a must-have secret utility room to create order and organisation, allowing her kitchen to be a place to rest, relax and cook.

Think integrated wine racks, cutlery dividers, built-in bins, magic corners, spice racks and pull-out larders to name a few. The more you make of the interior of your kitchen, the more free worktop space you create so you can let your kitchen space shine!
