Modern Kitchen Design Ideas
There are a lot of different design ideas for a modern kitchen. If you have decided to revamp your kitchen, it can be difficult to choose which style will suit you best. Here are some modern kitchen ideas to help you make up your mind.
Zoning is very popular and is often used in modern houses. It is fashionable to build or buy houses with one large room. This versatile open plan space means that you can make the most of the room you have available and don’t lose floor space to extra doors and walls. This incorporates your kitchen, dining and living space into one area, which can make your main living area look bigger.
It is important to create separate zones in your space so it doesn’t lack character. A great way to do this is by using a kitchen island for separation. This will give you additional storage space, too. One popular idea is to use the dining room side of your kitchen island as a dining table area. This saves you space and looks stylish.
Mobile space dividers such as a kitchen cart, like this Wood Top Rolling Kitchen Trolley, can further increase the versatility of your space because you can move it wherever you want in the room. Increasing or decreasing the size of your zones may be important to you if you are entertaining guests or have a large family.
The minimalist look is very hot right now, with many people opting for this image in the kitchen. Minimalism looks wonderful in the kitchen because it creates clean lines and clutter-free workspaces. This is harder to pull off than it might sound because you will need a lot of storage space in your kitchen to keep items out of sight. Integrated appliances will allow you to hide your kitchen appliances behind a cabinet door so they are not in view.
Opt for sleek cabinet doors rather than shaker style or wood paneled doors if you want to go minimalist. Recessed spotlights will create a sleek finish to your kitchen ceiling and blend in well with the minimalist appearance of your space. Although a minimalist style can be achieved in a smaller kitchen, it often looks better if you have more space.
Industrial-style kitchens are very much in style right now. You can achieve this look by using stainless steel worktops and silver or chrome appliances. Add a double oven to enhance your industrial kitchen look, and for a final touch, you can display knives against clean white tiles. This will make you feel like a professional chef when you are creating delicious dinners and desserts for all the family.
Shiny surfaces will have the effect of making your space look bigger, so this style works very well in a smaller kitchen. Nevertheless, it will look equally stunning in a bigger space. It will brighten up your workspace, which means that your kitchen will be an easier and more pleasant place to work. Pendant-style lighting that is finished in chrome looks wonderful in an industrial-style kitchen. Be sure to place these pendants strategically to get the best task lighting, and make use of the natural light by keeping your windows clean and uncluttered.
Professional chefs like to work in kitchens full of stainless steel as this material is easy to keep clean and hygienic. This works just as well in a home kitchen, especially in times of the pandemic and lockdown.
If you do not want to go for a complete kitchen makeover, adding a few splashes of color can give your kitchen a completely new look. This works best against white or wood-effect cabinets. Opt for a neutral floor and walls, and choose the color you are going to use to add vibrancy. This should be something bright that will really bring your space to life. Green, red or even pink can look fantastic here. Use color splashes with items such as kettles and toasters, like this Retro Style Toaster in Red. You could even change your tile color for a vibrant contrast. This does not have to be expensive or time-consuming as making one or two color changes can make a big difference to the overall appearance of your kitchen.
Hopefully, these style tips have given you some great kitchen ideas to work with, whether you have decided to add some subtle changes or give your kitchen a complete overhaul. Enjoy revamping your kitchen in your new style!
