If you’re looking for a super stylish modern kitchen then this new addition to Neptune’s kitchen range, called Limehouse, might be just what you’re after. It’s effortlessly cool, taking inspiration from industrial form and function with an update for contemporary living. Let’s take a look at this modern kitchen along and the complementary kitchen table and chairs, bar stools plus pendant lighting.
Modern kitchen – view the design
This kitchen is all about linear design with clean lines. It’s very much a modern take on a traditional industrial working kitchen. It has a pared back, almost simplified style.
The design suits a wide range of interiors. If you have a warehouse or loft apartment, this kitchen looks amazing set against exposed brick walls. It would also be super stylish in a contemporary or period home.
It’s been hand painted in the Lily colourway which is soft, neutral and unobtrusive. This complements the ceramic Plymouth rock work surfaces. The paint shade also contrasts exceptionally well with industrial aluminium splashes like the sink and taps.
If you want to make sure a kitchen will withstand the wear and tear of modern living then attention to detail is crucial. The Limehouse cabinets actually come with new patent pending hinges. These are discreet and hidden into the frame featuring an off centre pivot to ensure those doors close smoothly. The appliance cabinets feature innovative joinery so the housing will accommodate any of your white goods. Of course the price of this kitchen really depends on how many units you require. To give you an idea, the starting price is £11,000.
Modern kitchen – seating ideas
They’ve even thought about the seating and you have several options. The new upholstered Shoreditch Bar Stools are a new take on a twentieth century classic. It has a contemporary shape and smooth flowing lines so looks visually appealing. It’s also very comfortable thanks to an innovative design. You can opt for this version without a back rest – £225.

For kitchen table and chairs, this new Buckland Bench seat is very versatile. It can be set against a wall, in a corner or free standing. This comes in a fixed size but you can add more kits to extend it easily enough. It’s been painted in a neutral Fog colour which coordinates well with the Lily colourway of the cabinets. The short bench is £675 and £925 for a long seat bench. You can add additional chairs with backs like these Montague Lloyd Loom Chairs – £195. You’ll also need a table; this picture features the Harrogate which comes sized 170cm. There is also an extendable version which goes up to 260cm – £795-995.

Modern kitchen – lighting ideas
If you’re fitting a new kitchen then it’s a good opportunity to rethink your lighting. Recessed lights are a good option with the addition of pendant lighting over the breakfast bar or counter tops. These work particularly well in groups of three to create a feature. Here are two examples to give you an idea.
Byron White Pendant
To accentuate the industrial design of this kitchen, the Byron White Pendant would be ideal. It’s clean and modern with a gloss white exterior and luminescent interior. It comes with a 110cm cable so is designed to hang at eye level – £95. The Imperial Nickel Pendant is certainly splendidly shiny. The cable length is 115cm – £175.
