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.
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.
Typically, in a kitchen, there is little decoration. The most decoration will come from the color chosen for the cabinetry, furniture and appliances. Some choose to paint everything a single color. Others choose to paint the walls and cabinets a single color while choosing appliances and cookware that is painted in a sharply contrasting color. If your kitchen space is small, you can create the illusion of space by choosing a single color for your walls and appliances. If your kitchen is larger, you can create textures and a decorative feel by choosing contrasting colors.
Most modern furniture serves more than one purpose. This is not just because the modern art movement calls for this, it is because humans are creative! Do you use your coffee table to store blankets or games? Do you use bookcases as places to display your photos and plants? You have just helped your furniture become modern furniture! To consider your chairs modern kitchen chairs, they need to pull double or triple duty: do you use them as stepstools or as small tables? You have modern chairs in your kitchen!
When choosing furniture for your kitchen, ask yourself if you want to use art as inspiration behind your furniture choices. Modern art employs simple shapes, clean lines and bold color choices. The fewer design elements, the happier the artist becomes. A kitchen chair, for example, will consist usually of a single-piece seat that sits on four straight legs. The kitchen cabinets should be in simple shapes: squares or rectangles with simply shaped handles. These cabinets should be in bold colors or white. Chrome handles are common in the modern kitchen. If these ideas do not appeal to you, your kitchen might be based upon other design elements.
Going green - more and more people these days are opting for greener kitchen designs. Eco friendly modern kitchens are popular and, contrary to what some people may think, don't look unattractive at all! Features you can find in green kitchens include recycled paper countertops, bamboo flooring, LED lighting and energy efficient appliances.
