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.
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.
This one is particularly useful if you find yourself in a studio where every room kind of just spills into the next. Should you have a window in your teeny kitchen, consider adding draperies, which will invite the same coziness your living room offers, encasing you in purposeful design. Weren’t blessed with tons and tons of cabinetry to stash away all your tools, pots and pans and the likes? Make your own fortune, instead! Take a cue from this vignette that uses a simple yet stunning copper bar to add hanging storage.
