When it comes to designing the modern kitchen, people typically take one of two design paths. The first path uses modern art as inspiration to create the overall look of the design. Kitchens, of course, are everywhere (any kitchen that uses an electric or gas stove and oven can technically be considered modern). But another tack for the kitchen design is to choose the latest and most recent technologically advanced kitchen appliances and features available. These features are then surrounded with decorative elements of the designer's choosing. Qualified modern designers will help you figure out a balance between the two tacks.
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.
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.
Cabinetry of a modern luxury kitchen will distinctly lack extra features found in traditional style designs. Most modern cabinets are simple, square or rectangular shaped, without fancy door handles. Although 'plain' the look of the cabinetry is sleek, clean, and highly functional. The look is all about working properly and showcasing your personal style. In fact, you may wish to completely leave cabinet doors off for the sheer convenience of access and sexy open look.
Most of us want what we think of as a 'modern' kitchen. But what, exactly is a modern kitchen? Can't the term 'modern' be used to describe every kitchen that employs electricity? Technically, aren't all kitchens considered a modern convenience? If so, how do you get modern ideas?
Going green - more and more people these days are opting for greener kitchen designs. Eco friendly modern kitchens are popular and, contrary to what some people may think, don't look unattractive at all! Features you can find in green kitchens include recycled paper countertops, bamboo flooring, LED lighting and energy efficient appliances.
