Modern kitchens are highly functional and space-saving in nature. Therefore, they are ideal for any size of house from tiny ones to spacious mansions. If you are planning a new construction or a remodel of your kitchen, you may be in a quandary as to how to design it to best suit your needs and preferences. To help you with your endeavour, we provide you the following ideas that you may want to incorporate into your design.
Combine Different Textures
Create an interesting look for your kitchen by mixing together different textures. For example, blend smooth countertops and pressed-tin splashbacks since these have a unique texture to them.
Use Natural Materials to Enhance Your Modern Kitchen
Turn to natural materials for your cabinetry and countertops. Wood for the cabinetry can be stained rather than painted to show off its grain pattern. Marble and granite are two examples of natural stone that are ideal for countertops in a modern kitchen, or you can opt for an engineered quartz product that includes a high percentage of natural quartz if you so desire.
Sleek, Minimalist Cabinetry
Regardless of the material that you use for the cabinets, they should be of a sleek, minimalist design that conserves space while they are still highly attractive and functional. After all, this is the main focus of the modern design.
Stainless Steel Appliances
Not only are stainless steel appliances as modern as possible in design, they also are highly attractive and low maintenance. Stainless steel is easy to keep clean with a soft cloth and mild detergent. You even can use glass cleaner on it. A kitchen sink of stainless steel also is a wise investment for its modern looks and easy care needs.
Add an Island for Extra Work Space
When your kitchen is large enough, add an island to gain extra work space. There are different configurations from which to choose on these islands that include such ideas as:
• A plain island for work space only
• One side of the island for food prep with the other side designed for the addition of stools for an eating area
• The inclusion of a sink or cooktop in the island
Use Contrasting Shades to Highlight Certain Features in Your Kitchen
Another idea that creates an eye-catching kitchen is to use contrasting shades to highlight certain features. If you choose a light shade of cabinetry, choose a dark shade for your countertops or vice versa to achieve this effect.
