Stainless steel - stainless steel has prevailed as one of the top finishes in modern kitchens, and this trend probably isn't going anywhere for a while! Easy to clean, stainless steel can be used for countertops, cabinets, backsplashes and appliances (microwaves, ovens, sinks, toasters - you name it!).
Appliances in your new kitchen need not be the most recent release from a major appliance company. While having the fancy new refrigerator or the hottest new 5 burner cook top may be nice, does it fit into your overall decorating scheme and budget? Believe it or not, a retro refrigerator, if working properly, could be the right fit for your new kitchen. Even your kitchen hood exhaust fan from a different time period can work, as long as it functions fine and does not pose a danger to the rest of your house.
How advanced do you want your kitchen appliances to be? Some people love getting kitchen ideas from up to the minute technology websites and catalogs. If, to you, a modern kitchen uses highly technological appliances, look for refrigerators, ranges, etc with computers installed. A range that sits into the counter and uses a computer chip to raise the temperature of the 'burners' is a modern stove. A refrigerator with a computer chip that tells you to buy more cheese because someone ate the last piece earlier in the day would be ideal in your kitchen.
By standard definition, a modern kitchen is any kitchen that uses electricity or natural gas. So technically speaking, I guess every kitchen in the western world is known as a modern kitchen. However for the purposes of this article, we're going to expand the definition and focus on the conveniences of modern kitchen design and the benefits that you can potentially enjoy every day no matter your lifestyle.
For the purposes of this article, we will use the terms modern and contemporary interchangeably. While in terms of art history the two are very different, when looking at furniture, there is not a lot of difference between the two.
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.
Kitchens can enhance the interior of your home and add personality to the space, no matter what style they are. If you prefer modern spaces and want to get cozy in a contemporary kitchen but aren't sure where to start, there are some considerations to keep in mind.
