The Modern Kitchen: 10 Tips To Upgrade Your Design

By vanteam, January 31, 2020

If you are planning on renovating your kitchen, you are in the right place. Below, we give you some tips on how you can give your kitchen a more contemporary look, without spending all of your savings.

Mix Materials To Create A Modern Look

To create a modern look, opt for shaker style cabinets or simple fat front styled ones. Marble is both light and dark tones is a popular material choice for modern kitchens. Some people use it for their kitchen islands as the focal point of the kitchen, while others cover all sides of the kitchen to give the illusion of one large piece of stone. While it is less common, many people experiment with stainless steel similarly.

Closed Storage Space

Closed storage space is something that you should prioritize when trying to create a modern kitchen space. Floor to ceiling cabinets is an efficient way to maximize storage space.

Opt for Neutral, Cozy Tones

The best way to warm up the clean lines of a modern kitchen is to use warm colours, such as beige or off-white. They will also make a smaller kitchen appear larger.

Combine Styles For a Unique, Modern Look

You can be modern without giving up personality when designing your kitchen. The predominant style of your kitchen can be modern, and you can add accents to another favourite design style. 

Unique Room Dividers

If you want to minimize or separate rooms in an open concept home, room dividers are a great way to do both. You have many options available to you, such as fluted glass, accordion doors, or wood structures that will also add visual interest to your home.

Emphasize Architectural Details

If your kitchen has any interesting architectural details, don’t be afraid to emphasize them. People sometimes mistake modernity for being cold but you can still have a modern home that is also warm and welcoming.

Add Multi functional Accessories

In many modern kitchens, you will find many built-in features such as small appliances. The options are endless and you should base it on what will maximize efficiency for you.

Versatile Island

Your island is the focal point of your kitchen, which means that it should be functional and visually pleasing. Your island can include a sink, a stovetop, or a dishwasher.

Maximize Light

Lighting plays a big role in creating the atmosphere of your kitchen. You can have recessed track lighting or suspended lighting, among many others, all of which have specific functions.

Personal Touches

When doing any renovation project, don’t forget to add some personal touches. You want your kitchen to feel like home. Whether you like fresh flowers and like to have various tech gadgets around, make sure that it feels like home to you.
