You know the modern formula already: clean, open, minimal, functional. But you may not know how to make the sleek design aesthetic have character, be family-friendly, or even a little bit colorful. Whether you want to go full-on mid-century or have something a little more contemporary, let these modern kitchens inspire you to think outside the farmhouse box.
We all know that small kitchens can be tricky when it comes to adding the unexpected. Think about painting or wallpapering the inside of your cabinets, or springing for a surprising backsplash. This pint-size kitchen really takes advantage of its wall space by adding in a metal rack above the sink for tools and utensils.
If you’ve run out of wall and counter space, look up. Your ceiling is often untapped (and full of potential). Try a heavy-duty ceiling pot rack or try a DIY project like the owners of this small kitchen who created a hanging bar. Apartment Therapy writer Nancy Mitchell lives in a small studio in Manhattan with very limited counter space. She remedied that by bringing in a compact rolling cart which acts as an island.
"The notion of open shelving, until recent decades, has always included a chilling fear of exposing the tangled cabinet innards," states Stephen and Janessa Gertz of MILIEU. "But when implemented properly, open shelving can function as a fantastic way to showcase tableware. It may give height into a little kitchen, developing a mild open atmosphere.
Beatriz says customers are also searching for more room and flexibility in utilizing bigger cookware, and Thermador's latest induction cooktop, Freedom, provides the largest usable cooking surface available on the marketplace. "With quicker and more exact heating, unparalleled energy and standout simmering results, induction cooking is a way we could anticipate will continue to trend up," she states.
