Many homeowners today are seeking a modern kitchen design with simple lines or sleek slab doors with either no pulls or slim cylinder pulls. In a modern kitchen, each cabinet serves a purpose and is uncluttered, with neutral colors and textures. The grain on the wood cabinets can either be horizontal or vertical. Windows open up the space and contribute to a more spacious feel.
The color palette for a modern kitchen has whites, grays, blacks, and natural woods or stains. Accent colors such as red, black, or yellow can be used to draw attention. Wall and base cabinets can be two different colors, or the island can be a different color or a stained wood. Modern finishes in the kitchen include stainless, chrome, black, or the new brass.
Warmer decorative touches can be used to create other kitchen designs, such as a modern farmhouse kitchen.
Maximized Storage Space
To maximize space and convenience, one can select base cabinets with drawers, rollout shelves, pullout organizers, and compartments. You can also use a flip-up door cabinet with a pulldown storage area to make a statement on the wall. Bringing some wall cabinets down to the countertop with glass doors can also maximize your storage space according to your needs.
Hardware should be straight with angular or cylinder lines or industrial handles. Use LED under-cabinet task lighting and pendant lights to add natural light to the kitchen. Avoid lanterns or crystal chandeliers. To top off your modern, sleek kitchen, choose a quartz countertop with minimal veining.
The Modern Kitchen in a Nutshell
A modern style kitchen is different from a contemporary one as it does not rely on what designs are trending at the moment and can change with the times. It has a distinct look with clean lines, neutral colors, and optimized function.
