The kitchen is the heart of any home. In the world of interior design, modern kitchens have gained immense popularity. With their sleek lines, minimalist aesthetic and functional layout, modern kitchens offer a perfect combination of style and practicality.

If you're looking to create a modern kitchen that oozes elegance and sophistication, we've got 7 inspiring tips from Angelourenzzo designs.

Choose Minimalism

At the forefront of modern design, Angelourenzzo is passionate about the perfect combination of colours and materials. By adopting minimalism, one of the fundamental bases for creating a modern kitchen, it's possible to achieve a harmonious balance. The atelier can create a clutter-free space, through simple lines and elegant finishes, where each element is carefully selected to convey a clean and sophisticated aesthetic. Neutral colours such as white, beige or grey are the perfect canvas to paint a minimalist environment.

Angelourenzzo's project in Póvoa de Varzim is a shining example of this concept. The atelier chose handleless cabinets, which created a continuous look that provides beauty and ample and organised storage space.

Incorporate Innovative Materials

The pursuit of uniqueness is the driving force behind Angelourenzzo's choices. When creating modern kitchens, incorporating innovative materials is an essential element. It is the perfect opportunity to explore the potential of rich and fascinating surfaces.

The Paredes de Coura villa project is an inspiring example of this approach. With marble worktops and wooden details on the island base, luxurious elements are added that captivate the eye and provide a unique experience.

Prefer Open Spaces

Open spaces are like a blank canvas for Angelourenzzo to create true works of art in modern kitchens. Removing walls allows a sense of spaciousness and fluidity, inviting free movement and encouraging social interaction.

Santa Maria da Feira's Villa project is an inspiration, with an open-concept kitchen that integrates seamlessly with the dining area. The absence of physical boundaries allows for easy interaction and creates an inclusive atmosphere where everyone feels welcome.

Play with lighting

Proper lighting is crucial in making a modern kitchen both beautiful and practical. Angelourenzzo has mastered the use of light and shadow to create the desired ambience. Employing layered lighting techniques can enhance the depth and functionality of the space. The Granja Villa's kitchen project is a tribute to the smart use of lighting with recessed and under-cabinet lighting, resulting in a visually appealing and well-lit kitchen.

The installation of dimmer switches allows you to adjust the lighting levels according to different occasions and moods, creating the perfect atmosphere for every moment.

Harness the Power of Colour

Angelourenzzo knows the power of colour to transform a kitchen into a visually appealing space. The minimalist colour palette comes to life with the addition of bold accents.

The Japandi House project is a notable example of a modern and elegant kitchen, using predominantly blue tones and grey accents. The contrasting colour combinations or monochrome schemes assemble a perfect balance. Additionally, the careful selection of colours can influence your kitchen atmosphere. Cool tones like blues and greens can promote a sense of tranquillity, while warm tones such as yellows and oranges can evoke energy and enthusiasm. Choosing the right colours that suit your style can create a harmonious atmosphere in your home.

Integrate Smart Technology

In the pursuit of excellence in modern design, Angelourenzzo finds smart technology a powerful ally. From voice-controlled lighting to intelligent appliances: these innovations add practicality to the kitchen and contribute to a futuristic and sophisticated design.

Smart technology combines functionality and style, taking the cooking experience to a new level.

Focus on Functionality

Functionality is a fundamental pillar in modern kitchen design. Angelourenzzo knows that visual beauty must go hand in hand with everyday practicality.

Angelourenzzo's project in Leça do Balio highlights the importance of functionality by incorporating smart storage solutions. With sliding drawers and vertical storage, space is optimised; and convenience is increased, creating a kitchen beautiful and highly functional.
