Composed of clean lines and elegant finishes, modern kitchen focuses on one function, to facilitate the preparation and cooking of food in open areas. A combination of natural and synthetic materials are mixed with a palette of colors ranging from neutral to bold to make a modern style kitchen. So before you buy kitchen appliances for your kitchen you should first keep reading to find out what you can do to make your kitchen more modern before putting it to use.
The colour palette for a modern kitchen goes from a range of bright colors to neutral tones. The tones you can consider using with this style are red, orange, turquoise, emerald green, black, silver, cream and white. Your best bet is to choose a combination of two to four and incorporate these colours throughout the space, on walls, on the kitchen counter, on the floor, in closets and even inside the devices. For example, you can choose black, silver and white for major items, such as cabinets and countertops, and use one of the boldest tone accents to give the room decoration a touch of colour.
Natural stone is a popular choice for modern kitchen counters, offering a sleek, clean design and a bright appearance. Granite and marble are perhaps the best materials to choose from when it comes to stone, as they are durable and able to withstand wear and tear from exposure to heat and water when cooking. These stones come in a variety of colors that work well with a modern design, such as black, gray and beige. The disadvantage of these natural stones is that they can be expensive. If you have a limited budget, ceramic tiles can be a better option for you as it, too, is a durable material and comes in a variety of colors that work with modern designs. Stainless steel countertops give your kitchen a unique cutting edge look.
When choosing kitchen cabinets, clean lines are the key. Wood such as maple or oak is ideal. Another option is black or white laminate cabinets. The doors of frosted or clear glass that open from the bottom are attractive options for upper cabinets. Install handles or drawer handles of brushed nickel or stainless steel. The floor to ceiling cupboards add continuous space that is a key feature of modern design lines.
The stainless steel appliances are now the latest trend in modern kitchen design, but the black and white appliances also work well in this design. Place a French door refrigerator with a freezer on the bottom. If your kitchen requires an electric stove, install one with a smooth coating. A large fan placed on the stove serves as a focal point and gives the kitchen a professional look. The modern social kitchen by Fisher and Paykel combines all the above and is a great example.
