When decorating a modern kitchen you get to play with a few different looks to get the one you want. You can try a sleek, futuristic look with stainless steal and the latest kitchen gadgets or go for a more colorful retro look with bright colors and fun pieces. Just make sure to focus on simple, clean, and functional items and colors when decorating your contemporary style kitchen. Need some help? Check out these decorating tips:
When choosing colors for a modern style kitchen, it’s best to stick to classy grays, silver, black, and white. Bring in color by using one popping accent of your choosing—red, purple, and yellow are all good colors to use. Bring this accent color in by using it in cabinets, the refrigerator, or small appliances like toasters and coffee makers. Colors shown above are: NG 66 (primary), NW 15 (trim), and (from left to right) ICS 5-7, NG 64, ICS 5-8 for accents.
Glass or stainless steel containers add counter storage options while maintaining the sleek look of a modern kitchen. If you want to go for a brighter, more retro look for your kitchen, try small appliances in bright colors. When decorating this space, minimalism is best so avoid cluttering your counters and walls with decorative items. A magnetic knife rack on the wall can show off a beautiful set of knives while also being functional.
Bright hand towels are fun and easy ways to add as splash of color to the kitchen. Avoid floral patterns and instead go for interesting geometric pattern or a modern art design.
From floor to ceiling, a modern kitchen should have a clean, minimalistic feel. Shiny black and white ceramic tile can give the flooring a mod look, while stainless steel or granite gives an upscale and contemporary flair to counter tops. Hardware and fixtures (like a fabulous one-touch faucet) should look simple and unadorned. When going for a retro modern style, think curved pieces. If you’d like a more futuristic modern feel, go for harder edges and geometric patterns.
