A new kitchen can make a world of difference and will elevate the appearance and value of your home significantly. Modern kitchens are very much in demand and if this is the type of design you are interested in, there are several elements you need to consider to bring your dream kitchen to life.
You can achieve a contemporary space, regardless of the size of your kitchen, so do not feel discouraged because you have a small space and remember that renovations will allow you to change your layout, open up the room and design your kitchen in a way that will make your space seem bigger. Trendy accessories like stools, light fixtures and pops of colour can help you create a modern kitchen and one of the first things you need to focus on is your new cabinets. You can choose neutral options or stick to a classic white or, if you really want your kitchen to stand out, you can choose bold cabinets in a colour that pops. Deep blues are very popular and selecting a bold colour will provide your kitchen with a very sleek look while making a beautiful statement. You can incorporate natural wood shelves that create a stunning combination to achieve a very modern look.
Consider the type of flooring you want because this too can make a very big difference. There are several options you can choose from and a very popular trend is checkered tiles, which can make a space pop. Black and white tiles are a favourite and this design will ensure your kitchen never goes out of style, so don’t be afraid to look at different ideas because modern kitchens do not have to include traditional elements and there is a lot more room for creativity.
The addition of an island will also help your kitchen feel modern, so this is definitely something to consider if you have space for it. This will provide you with additional storage space and create a beautiful seating area as well. Modern stools pair perfectly with a kitchen island and you will no longer have to deal with a lack of seating. A kitchen island is a perfect place for family and friends to gather and you can choose one that blends in with the rest of your kitchen design or choose to add colour so that your island pops. If one thing is for sure, it’s that an island is a big part of a modern kitchen, so see if your renovation will allow for one.
