There are lots of ways of decorating a kitchen. The options tend to get limited because the kitchen needs, first of all, to be functional and practical. This means that the decorative elements take the second place while the storage is on the first. One way of making the kitchen seem clean and airy is to adopt a modern or contemporary décor.

The lines are clean and well defined and the furniture is generally geometrical. As for the colors, the white is usually a common choice. Also, the black and white combination never gets old. You can also add some spots of color to create some contrast. Choose colorful and vibrant decorations like the lighting fixtures for example.

Another very important aspect in the kitchen is to have plenty of storage space. For that, choose spacious cabinets, with plenty of shelves and drawers. Moreover, the shelves are a very good idea too. They can be placed anywhere there is some free space and they are very practical and functional. If you want to add a sophisticated touch to your kitchen, choose abstract and complex pendants and other decorative items like a mirror for example.

The colors always need to complement each other. So choose a color palette and combine the tones in a harmonious way that would eventually create a warm and cozy space. If, on the other hand, you’re aiming at a more dramatic look, choose contrasting colors and mix them. Usually people opt for combination of black and white, white and red, grey and brown, green and beige, yellow and green, purple and grey etc. These are just some pointers. You can create your own contemporary kitchen by using your imagination.{pics from porcelanosa}
