With so many people spending much more time in their homes during the pandemic, kitchen design has become more important than ever. If you’re finding that your kitchen seems too cluttered and chaotic, it may be time to embrace a modern kitchen design.
Minimalist Cabinetry with Clean Lines
You’ll find that modern kitchens typically feature minimalistic cabinetry with simple features and clean lines. The flat panel type of cabinets is consistent with this style. In addition, cabinet hardware is sleek and flush with the surface, often extending the full length of the drawers. Of course, many homeowners do love highly stylized cabinets and hardware, so feel free to decorate according to your personal tastes!
Plenty of Storage Space
The modern kitchen aesthetic embraces the uncluttered look. In order to accomplish it, you’ll need plenty of storage space for your countertop appliances and other kitchen necessities. If your kitchen has a small footprint, your renovation plans might include building an addition onto your home or expanding the kitchen into other existing rooms to allow for more kitchen space. This can allow you to create a walk-in pantry to give your family plenty of storage space.
Beauty from Natural Elements
As a general rule of thumb, the modern style of kitchens eschews excessive ornamentation. However, that isn’t to say they lack ornamentation altogether. Rather, the ornamentation typically comes from the natural beauty of the materials. For example, the aesthetically pleasing grain of wood in the cabinets becomes more readily apparent when it’s allowed to take a starring role in the kitchen. Likewise, the beautiful veining of a marble countertop or the natural pattern of a granite countertop will draw the eye.
