The kitchen is an intensely private space for the family. From ancient times, the kitchen has always been associated with unity and harmony that the family shares. It is not just a place for cooking, family members gather around for meals and it is often believed that if an outsider is allowed into the kitchen, he or she is not an outsider anymore.
In contemporary times, interior designing styles and trends for kitchens have undergone a massive change, but the basic elements remain the same. Here are a few tips that can help you choose a stylish decor for your modern kitchen , without compromising on the element of warmth and coziness.
A minimalist approach is always appropriate for the kitchen- it helps you emphasize more on the usability and keeps the kitchen clutter- free. Both the partners in modern families work today and they are always on the move. The lady of the house does not spend the entire day in the kitchen anymore. Hence, the kitchen should be designed and organized in such a manner that it enhances work quality and saves time. One of the most effective ways of making more room is to opt for built- in kitchen cabinets.
Unified Color Theme
As much as we would like it, modern apartments do not have kitchens with adjacent parlors- it is a luxury gone with the Victorian and Edwardian era. An average apartment does not have a lot of space for a kitchen. The question is to enhance the sense of space. This can be done with the help of soft and muted colors which make the room look larger than what it is.
Sleek and straight lines always look more chic and contemporary than curves and bulky motifs, which exude a more old- world feel. So whether it’s the wallpaper or the tables; the appliances or the lamps and holdings- opt for neat and sleek designs. They look very stylish and contemporary. Avoid designs that look cumbersome. Again, opt for sliding doors whenever possible; they look smart and chic and do not open outwards, thus saving space.
Include modern elements and concepts in the kitchen. You can have a small area for the bar or you can opt for digital patterns for the floor – the options are limitless. Laminate flooring with interesting patterns are also an affordable option. The extensive use of glass and steel can also add to the trendy look of the space. Opt for steel or wrought- iron racks. All of these will add to the overall look of the kitchen.
