A lot of people can’t resist the bold yet minimalist look of the modern kitchen. The sleek, seamless look fits perfectly into many existing house designs and the low maintenance approach means that upkeep is easy. The clean lines of the modern kitchen are often made possible through the use of integrated design features where clutter and appliances, the curse of many kitchens, are kept completely hidden. Integrated kitchens are highly functional and when you see them in action, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner!

For some integration inspiration, let’s take a look at how you can incorporate integrated design ideas into your modern kitchen.

What is an integrated kitchen?

In many kitchens, appliances reign supreme and are in full view at all times. Similarly, clutter can creep its way onto benchtops due to insufficient storage. With an integrated design, kitchen appliances blend in seamlessly with the rest of the cabinetry and are not visible in the final look of the kitchen. Large appliances such as the fridge and dishwasher are therefore hidden away instead of being a focal point. Storage solutions are also put into place so there is no visible clutter on any of the benchtops.

What are the advantages to integrated design?

In terms of modern kitchen design, integrated kitchens are the perfect solution. They add to the clean look of the modern kitchen as the eye is drawn to streamlined cabinetry rather than clumsy appliances. If you have an open plan home, integrated design gives a sense of flow as there are no appliances to obstruct your line of sight. Given the focus on storage, it means that everything has its place and the clutter-free approach is easily maintained. As well as being aesthetically effective, integrated kitchens are also designed to be fully functional with appliances located in easy to access locations for total convenience when entertaining.

How can integrated design be implemented for me?

If you’re interested in adopting the sleek, modern look of integrated kitchen design, it’s a good idea to speak to a kitchen design expert. They’ll be able to give you specific advice based on the space you’re working with and offer suggestions that you may not have thought of. Many people initially plan to replicate the current layout of their kitchen into a modern, integrated look but there could be a far more efficient way to design your new kitchen
