Modern kitchens usually have appliances, ovens, and ranges that are all design focused and often top of the line. Varying industrial materials are very popular such as metal, wood, glass, and stainless steel. Color palettes that focus on muted colors such as white, gray, and navy are popular in modern kitchens. That, however, doesn’t mean that you can’t use other colors. Modern design style can provide a neutral backdrop and allow for splashes of brighter colors as accents. What is the right design and layout for a modern kitchen? Modern kitchens come in all shapes and sizes and can fit in with any type of kitchen layouts. That being said, there are certain design elements that fit best in different kitchens. What it comes down to is how your family uses the kitchen. If you are a busy family where the kitchen is mainly used to grab a quick bite of food, rather than to make a four-course meal, then a kitchen with more free space is optimal for you. If you are more of a chef, then certain designs that allow for the perfect kitchen triangle are going to work better for your kitchen style. If you are unable to remodel your entire kitchen to mix up the layout, try adding a kitchen island to get the design you want. Explore our guide to kitchen islands to learn more about how this piece can transform your space. How do I choose the right countertop for my modern kitchen? Choosing the right countertop can be difficult and largely depends on the needs of you and your family. If you choose something like a white porcelain tile that will take a different level of upkeep than something such as wood or stainless steel countertops. Take a look at our guide to choosing the right countertop. Don’t forget you can also look through photos and browse ideas of modern kitchen countertops by searching tile on Digs. How to add storage to a modern kitchen? Modern design is all about function. Sometimes with all of that function you don’t have any ideas for new storage space. Fear not! Additional storage fits into modern kitchen design better than nearly any other kitchen style. Check out our kitchen storage guide and learn how to free up more space in your kitchen. How can I make my kitchen more modern? There are a few ways to remodel your kitchen to make it more modern. The quickest way is to change out the hardware. A simple swap of cabinet pulls, a new sink, or even just a new faucet, dishwasher or microwave can give your kitchen a more modern feel. Find our guides on upgrading your kitchen appliances here.
