    I’ve been thinking about how best to sell modern kitchens to you, for our Beautiful Kitchens poll, and I’ve decided that, really, I just don’t need to. Now I know Ysanne and Rachel may be shaking their heads at this no-sell option, but I assure you it’s no sneaky tactic – I truly believe that modern kitchens speak for themselves. After all, what’s not to love about killer curves, clean lines and state-of-the-art appliances?

    No matter how much we may love the cosy traditional look, or a homely Shaker style, after a busy day most of us want no-mess, easy cleaning and a kitchen that we can show off to guests with a sleek, stylish appearance.

    Bringing your kitchen into the 21st century needn’t mean it will be quick to date and leading-edge materials, such as glass, acrylic, wood and hi-gloss are proving ever popular. We love designs by Metris, Warendorf, Alno and Ikea – for more kitchen ideas see our May 2010 issue.

    This swanky monochrome design by PTC Kitchens proves my case in point – it’s not just a kitchen, it’s a social space and thus deserves to look the part. Thank you for voting modern!

      You’re right of course, Laurie. It’s the CHOOSING that’s the snag for me. I love aspects of all three design styles and try to incorporate them all into my own kitchen–a real mish-mash of eclectic kitchenosity!

      It’s interesting that ‘modern’ kitchens gets the nod as the favorite style which makes me wonder why? Is it functionality, social space or cleanliness that makes it the most appealing? My guess would be a bit of all three but I would also think it would have to look ‘right’ in context to it’s surroundings. I would be interested to hear your thoughts.
