Modern interior design refers to an uncluttered, minimalistic style. Some even say it looks futuristic, due to the toned-down colors and lack of unnecessary detailing. Recently, we have seen an upwards trend in this simple, modern style. It is especially popular in kitchens since the sleek look adds to the clean feeling everyone wants in that particular space. However, the simple, modern style doesn’t mean your kitchen has to be boring. Let’s look at some tips on how you can add some modern kitchen updates while still having fun and being creative.
Upgrading your hardware and other effects is a small thing that can make a huge difference in the way your kitchen looks. In modern design, certain metals are typically used to fit the aesthetic. Change out your outdated metals to stainless steel, matte aluminum, copper, or brushed gold to add some modern kitchen updates. These metals can be incorporated into a wide variety of hardware, including your kitchen sink, cabinet hardware, and lighting fixtures. This is the easiest way to add a modern touch to your kitchen, especially if you are on a budget.
If you don’t want to take the plunge and get a new set of cabinets but still want to modernize them, simply stain or paint over your existing cabinets! Painting your cabinets white or black will give you that instant modern look. If you still want to achieve a modern style but want to have some fun, then give your cabinets a coat of sea green or charcoal gray paint.
Removing one or two upper kitchen cabinets and replacing them with open shelving is a great way to give your kitchen an open, sleek look. This can also be a fun way to add decorative pieces and show off your kitchen accessories.
Going modern doesn’t mean your kitchen has to look boring. Adding some modern decorative elements such as a plant, your favorite cutting board, or a bowl of fruit can allow you to show your creative side. Simple decorations like these are a budget-friendly way to add a few modern kitchen updates.
This tip requires a bit more planning and construction, but we guarantee it will give your kitchen a more modern look. Tearing down an unnecessary wall will give you an open concept look that is common in many modern kitchens. Maybe you have a wall that connects your kitchen and dining room that is starting to seem like a waste of space. Even increasing the size of a doorway or opening can give you a similar effect.
