A Checklist for Your Modern Kitchen
Among 2019’s home trends, modern kitchen designs are very popular and for good reason. These modern, minimalistic, and contemporary looks are clean, sophisticated, and note-worthy. The details that go into attaining the modern look can be a little nuanced, but with the help of a professional and reputable designer, and an idea of what to look for, you can achieve your dream modern kitchen remodel.
Here are seven ideas to keep in mind when planning your modern kitchen design:
Watch the Lines and Shapes:
Modern design is comprised of many long lines terminating in sharp corners. The length and angles help make the clean, sophisticated look this type of design is loved for. However, adding a hanging light fixture of unusual shape or a unique backsplash with a pop of color can add a fresh, personalized twist. An interesting focal point serves as a nice extension to the modern look and a great conversation piece.
Consider Alternative Materials:
Stone, copper, concrete and wood compliment the modern look with a natural feel. For those looking to add a bit more warmth than modern design usually lends, these materials are sure to do the trick. That’s not to say they diverge from modern design, however. On the contrary, the contrast is very modern.
Cleanliness Through Organization:
Contemporary style looks clean because it is clear of clutter. That cleanliness comes from efficient organization. Storage space that has been optimized with dividers, hangers and sliding drawers can help alleviate messes and provide a home for each kitchen item.
We’ve already mentioned the option for an out-of-the-box light fixture. Having one or two of these can add a dramatic flair but track and recessed lighting are also very valuable in modern design. These lighting options cast lots of light on walls, which helps emphasize the contrast between decorated and bare space.
Accentuating a View:
One of the best parts of modern design is its ability to direct the eye. Its clean lines are awe-inspiring in itself, but it does not detract from the focal point. This type of design seems to play off natural beauty by being so minimalistic in its nature. With this in mind, selecting windows and doors that allow for the best views is key.
Appliances and Furniture:
Most often, stainless steel appliances are the go-to for modern designs. However, many kitchens feature appliances with faces that match the cabinetry, causing them to blend in. Another popular option is choosing appliances with glossy finishes.
The best time to consider sustainable kitchen designs is when you are considering a kitchen remodel. Reclaimed wood, energy-efficient appliances, and recycled countertops do not need to take away from your modern look. Instead, choosing to make your kitchen environmentally friendly takes your kitchen to a new level of modernity, as it carries on the sentiment and not just the look.
