By standard definition, a modern kitchen is any kitchen that uses electricity or natural gas. So technically speaking, I guess every kitchen in the western world is known as a modern kitchen. However for the purposes of this article, we're going to expand the definition and focus on the conveniences of modern kitchen design and the benefits that you can potentially enjoy every day no matter your lifestyle.
Kitchens can enhance the interior of your home and add personality to the space, no matter what style they are. If you prefer modern spaces and want to get cozy in a contemporary kitchen but aren't sure where to start, there are some considerations to keep in mind.
While technology can pose an image of cold and uninviting, a modern kitchen embraces state-of-the-art innovation with classic design ideas - clean lines, clear countertops, bold colors, contrasting design elements, and simple shapes. A modern kitchen can be both a technologically advanced and warm and inviting space.
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.
Contemporary furniture - if you've decided you want a modern kitchen, don't just update the cabinets and countertops. There are a multitude of contemporary chairs, tables and other pieces of furniture - you have literally hundreds of options. Instead of buying traditional or plain kitchen chairs, go for contemporary stools to go with your island. Little touches like this can go a long way.
When you take a modern-art centric approach, you will want to focus on clean lines. Clean lines are incredibly important to the modern art design. Kitchen designers will tell you that, if you want a modern arty 'feel' to your kitchen, you will want clean and straight lines. You want clean counters and clean walls. In this design, modern kitchen will be free of knick knacks or other decorations. Any counter top appliances, like a toaster, a coffee maker or a microwave, will match the kitchen's color scheme and either blend in to the walls and counter surrounding them or stand out starkly in contrast. These kitchens, according to modern designers, are free of wall decorations, flowers or other superfluous elements.
Technology is typically the first association people make with the word 'modern.' And if you want your kitchen to be technologically advanced you will focus on computer chipped appliances and computers. Today appliances use computers to set temperatures, timers, food expiration dates, and even alerts for inventory restocking. A modern kitchen may very well include a large flat screen TV to display recipes, family calendars, household schedules, and it's certainly more fun to cook while watching videos, searching websites, or listening to music.
