If you’ve updated your kitchen decorating with fresh, fashion-forward colors and a focal wall, it’s time to add layers. The latest trend in kitchen design is open shelving, instead of cabinets. This look lightens a kitchen up by creating visual space, but requires you to hide all the tupperware and mismatched glasses in fewer cabinets.
Take a quick glance at your kitchen. What do you see first? A dingy, boring wall? Or worse, an outdated faux paint job complete with ivy or fruit-themed stencil work? It’s time to make a change.
Use pendant lights or a series of mini-pendants to enhance the beauty and functionality of the kitchen. Pendants look great above kitchen sinks, while a series of mini-pendants work well over breakfast bars and kitchen islands. Install under-cabinet lighting to make sure that the counters have sufficient lighting for common kitchen tasks.
The way we use our kitchens is evolving, with a desire to create open-plan spaces designed for entertaining taking precedent. Maximizing natural light is (arguably) the key to designing a contemporary kitchen that fits this new-found requirement. After all, light has the capacity to make a space feel brighter and more spacious – particularly when paired with an all-white scheme – which will make it a more pleasant place to spend time.
As mentioned, designing a contemporary kitchen is about more than the fixtures and fittings you choose (thought these are important, too). What’s at the core of a contemporary kitchen is a space that can function as the hub of the home with plenty of space for engaging and entertaining.
We’re not sure we’ll ever be tired of Mid-century modern interiors, which makes them the perfect point of inspiration when designing a contemporary kitchen. We love the pairing of this stylish (and very Mid-century inspired) dining set with modern appliances and and otherwise sleek, minimalist interior.
