Three Features of the Modern Kitchen
Our kitchens are often a gathering place. It's often a place where the family comes together to hang out, cooking and eating together. With the amount of time spent in this room, it is no wonder the kitchen tops many people's renovations wish list.
Many people are choosing a modern style for their kitchens, bringing a sleek and simple feel to a room that often feels like the heart of the home. Even if a full renovation isn't in the books, it is simple to add a modern touch to your kitchen with just a few staple pieces. Let's focus on three elements we see modern kitchens:
1. Stainless Steel
One of the biggest features in many kitchens upgrades and remodels is the introduction of stainless steel dishwashers, refrigerators, stoves and more.Add the popular Rondelle stainless steel knife block to match your appliances. This material instantly adds an air of sophistication to the room.
The island is a go-to gathering place in the kitchen. Everyone can gather around and nibble on some snacks while catching up. Add a few stools to increase the comfort of hanging out around the kitchen island. Not to mention it gives you a little more counter space to work with during meal prep, particularly useful if you are prepping to host a party, it's also a perfect place to set out the food for your guests
3. Neutral colors with vibrant accents
Add to the sleek, luxury of a modern kitchen by decorating with neutral colors, keep your cabinets and your appliances in hushed, clean tones. You can bring that splash of color in with the accents, keep a few colorful plants, or use decorative storage jars to add bits of color here and there.
