When choosing furniture for your kitchen, ask yourself if you want to use art as inspiration behind your furniture choices. Modern art employs simple shapes, clean lines and bold color choices. The fewer design elements, the happier the artist becomes. A kitchen chair, for example, will consist usually of a single-piece seat that sits on four straight legs. The kitchen cabinets should be in simple shapes: squares or rectangles with simply shaped handles. These cabinets should be in bold colors or white. Chrome handles are common in the modern kitchen. If these ideas do not appeal to you, your kitchen might be based upon other design elements.
Integrated appliances - those interested in modern kitchens often want their homes to match their contemporary, on-the-go lifestyle. If you don't cook a lot, drawer dishwashers (designed for smaller loads) and under-counter fridges are perfect - and they look good in modern kitchens!
If the chairs in your kitchen can serve many purposes while still being chairs they are modern chairs. If the chairs can be used as works of art, they are modern/contemporary chairs.
Obviously these two approaches to designing the modern kitchen are not mutually exclusive. It is entirely possible, especially with the help of modern designers, to fuse these two approaches to the modern kitchen into a single design. Modern kitchen design is subjective. It is more about making sure that the person who uses the kitchen is happy. Good modern designers will be able to help you infuse your kitchen with modern art elements and modern technology. Of course, if you prefer to focus on a single approach (a modern art approach with classic appliances, for instance) that is quite possible.
Minimal décor - modern kitchens are meant to be minimalist; the old saying 'less is more' holds true for contemporary kitchens. A few open shelves, a modern picture or painting for the wall, a small backsplash - all these design elements are simple and modern.
Open floor plans - a modern kitchen design trend that has quickly gained popularity is an open floor plan. This creates a very social atmosphere, great for both entertaining and casual nights. The 'social kitchen' often features a large island, which provides space for preparing and cooking food as well as a surface for eating or simply helping the kids with homework!
