When you have just a few cabinet doors and a small stretch of countertops, your best bet for making a decorative splash just might be your refrigerator. This homeowner didn’t let size get in the way of showcasing artwork in this teeny kitchen. In fact, he took the opportunity to let oversized art shine.
A modern kitchen, whether it’s part of an open plan or if it’s a separate area, would usually have a simple and clean décor. The furniture would have simple lines without unnecessary ornaments or decorative details. Also, special attention is usually given to the way the space is used and organized. It’s why modern kitchens have lots of storage space, most often hidden in unexpected places.
As for the fixtures and appliances, some models are preferred. An under-mount sink is preferred to a drop-in model because it’s more practical and hygienic. Stainless steel appliances are usually chosen and they also usually feature similar finishes and designs. This detail helps with the overall décor that needs to be minimalist but still cohesive and stylish. But to better understand this style and to also find some inspiration for future projects, we have prepared a series of examples.
The ’70s are alive and well in this retro kitchen, whose chartreuse color palette and simple cabinetry give off a groovy feeling. Should you have a small dated kitchen you’re not too happy about, try leaning harder into its era to really make the most of it. Rather than committing to painting your cabinets or choosing a crazy-colored appliance, infuse color through your accessories, like in this kitchen space, which features light blue and red accents.
