Ultra glossy kitchens tend to look a bit Euro-mod, but there’s no denying the reflective (read: light-bouncing) properties it offers. This inviting space brings shine thanks to a glossy subway tile backsplash. When you’re a renter, it’s not always feasible to add on-the-wall shelving, even if they are incredibly useful for expanding your surface area. One of our Design Editor’s go-to solutions to this? A cheap baker’s rack, like this one from Target.
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.
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.
