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.
If you choose to take a modern technology approach to your design, modern kitchen designers will search out the to-the-minute appliances and technological kitchen advances. The kitchen will feature a computerized refrigerator, stove, oven and other appliances. It is highly likely that this kitchen will feature a kitchen computer and a console in which portable devices can be charged. It is also likely that there will be a computerized central device that will alert family members to scheduled activities, messages and other plans or notes.
Neutral colors - not only do modern kitchens thrive on neutral tones, but you also won't find a lot of different colors. If you want to add splashes of color to contrast the neutral shades, it's fine as long as you don't go overboard. It's best to stick with just a few bright colors to balance out the space, not five or six different colors. Too many different shades can be overwhelming.
Typically, in a kitchen, there is little decoration. The most decoration will come from the color chosen for the cabinetry, furniture and appliances. Some choose to paint everything a single color. Others choose to paint the walls and cabinets a single color while choosing appliances and cookware that is painted in a sharply contrasting color. If your kitchen space is small, you can create the illusion of space by choosing a single color for your walls and appliances. If your kitchen is larger, you can create textures and a decorative feel by choosing contrasting colors.
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.
