Many outdated kitchens were built to include walls and walls of upper cabinetry to house dishes and cookware. Often times, these cabinets consume the eye and make the kitchen feel crowded. If you’re looking to open up the space of your kitchen and don’t have and room to grow outwards, consider removing the upper cabinets. This frees up the wall, allowing for modern open shelving with a few decorative items and dishware.
Your kitchen is most likely the busiest area of your home, and the place people are most likely to congregate in. Modern kitchens embrace this by adding seating to the kitchen. Whether you choose countertop stools and seats at a breakfast bar, or you opt for a banquette or bench at a window side table, seating can make your kitchen have a whole new appeal. Busy families with children doing homework to parents entertaining friends while cooking make seating essential in your modern kitchen.
Adding or replacing kitchen cabinets can be expensive. And if you rent, the project may not even be allowed. Why not buy some good, inexpensive bookcases and make a storage wall for all your kitchen items?
When most people consider kitchen and bathroom fixtures, they only consider the finish since that’s what impacts the overall style of the space. However, in most cases, the finish is only a top coat that’s placed over a different underlying material. The material you choose will impact both your price point and the lifetime of your fixtures.
Metals going modern in kitchen design include matte aluminum, stainless steel, brushed gold, and copper – try these materials out in your cabinetry hardware, pendant lighting, and range hood options.
