It might help, when searching for modern kitchen ideas, to narrow your focus. What does 'modern' mean to you? Is it an art movement? Does it refer to a specific type of technology? Is it simply a design idea? Figure out exactly what you want to have in your kitchen before you begin shopping. When you start looking for kitchen ideas and inspiration, narrow your search to the following niches:
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.
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.
Neutral colors - not only do modern kitchens thrive on neutral tones, but you also won't find a lot of different colors. If you want to add splashes of color to contrast the neutral shades, it's fine as long as you don't go overboard. It's best to stick with just a few bright colors to balance out the space, not five or six different colors. Too many different shades can be overwhelming.
Minimal décor - modern kitchens are meant to be minimalist; the old saying 'less is more' holds true for contemporary kitchens. A few open shelves, a modern picture or painting for the wall, a small backsplash - all these design elements are simple and modern.
Open floor plans - a modern kitchen design trend that has quickly gained popularity is an open floor plan. This creates a very social atmosphere, great for both entertaining and casual nights. The 'social kitchen' often features a large island, which provides space for preparing and cooking food as well as a surface for eating or simply helping the kids with homework!
