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.
Do not let the connotation of industrial turn you off. It can look totally elegant and clean (start with some fresh flowers on your island), and a stainless steel backsplash will take all those oil splatters like a pro.
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.
