When you think of modern kitchens, you probably imagine stark walls and sparse accents. That does not have to be the case, though. While minimalist designs are in right now, it does not have to feel cold and bare. Here are some tips to help you adopt a modern look for your kitchen that still feels warm and inviting.

Keep It Simple


An easy way to get the modern look is by sticking to a monochromatic colour palette. Choose a neutral colour for your walls, cabinets, and countertops. Add dimension by choosing flooring and counter stools that are a vibrant, warm wood colour. A few potted herbs add life to the area and are also practical to have around when cooking. 

Skip the Cabinets


Instead of wall cabinets, opt for open shelving made from clean, unfinished wood. Ditching the clunky cabinets will open up your kitchen and make reaching for dishes and cookware easier. It will also give you the opportunity to show off your beautiful plates and cups.

Black is the New Black


Black kitchens are modern, sleek, and on trend. Combine dark countertops and cabinets with a light wood to give the space a more homely feel. The shade is also ideal for hiding messes made by families with little ones. 

Grey does not have to Mean Blah


Mixing solid greys with patterned accents can make a kitchen look cool and calm rather than dull. A geometric backsplash in this shade can add just the right amount of excitement to a neutral kitchen. Add statement lighting in the same shade to keep the space fresh, fun, and modern. 

Kitchen Canvas


Use an all-white kitchen as a canvas by adding a pop of colour here and there. If you like the look of white countertops, floors, and walls but want to add a bit more excitement, consider colourful appliances and serving ware. This way you can get creative without committing to a colour for more permanent and expensive fixtures. 

Industrial Meets Chic


An industrial themed kitchen can still look elegant and soft. Add some fresh cut flowers to your island and a stainless steel backsplash, so you do not have to worry about oil splatter. Your kitchen will look fresh and clean. 

Rustic can be Modern


Combine opposing elements to create a truly unique, but enchanting twist. There is no need to choose between one or the other when you can have both. Masculine rustic fixtures can balance modern, feminine fixtures seamlessly. 

Warmth


Dark wood cabinets and floors can add warmth and comfort to a modern kitchen. Skip metal hardware on drawers and cupboards for a more streamlined look. Dark wood is also favoured by many, making it a good investment should you ever want to sell your house. 

Add Fun Accents


Silver pendants give off party vibes while oversized, coloured backsplash tiles can brighten up a cooking space. Quirky kitchen accents add interest to an area. They make your kitchen stand out among a sea of neutral tones and skylights.

Make the Backsplash the Spotlight


Even if you have simple countertops and cabinets, a unique backsplash can change the whole vibe of the kitchen. Show off your personality with a mural or a nature design.
