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 kitchen is not for the faint of heart, but aside from its apparent boldness it also makes smart use of the empty space above the stove, by using it to house liquor and cookbooks, which probably don’t get daily use.
Paint colours work nicely with layout styles. They are also safer colour options since they readily complement and combine with different tones used at a kitchen, for example floors and accent colours.
