How To Choose Modern Furniture For The Kitchen

The kitchen, besides being the heart of the house in many cases, is also the room that usually keeps up with technology and design trends. In other words, kitchens get updated more often and modern and contemporary furniture is what you expect to find there. So let’s see what your options could be if you decide to give your kitchen a modern makeover.

A lot of modern kitchens also include a sitting/ dining area composed of a minimalist table like the one designed by Eeron Saarinen and a few classy dining chairs such as the Eames molded plastic chairs with wooden dowel legs.

When designing a modern kitchen, built-in appliances should be at the top of the list. They allow you to give the kitchen a minimalist and organized look and to make the most of the space. But keep in mind that you’ll most likely need custom furniture.

Hidden drawers.

How space-efficient is this kitchen island? Just look at all these drawers. There’s a ton of storage space here for everything from tableware to dishes and pots and pans. But the best thing is everything remains hidden and the only visible features remain the induction cooktop and the sink.

Curved lines.

Clean lines and sharp angles usually define modern interior design but curved lines can also be a characteristic. Look how refined and elegant this kitchen looks with that gorgeous ceiling and the oval freestanding hood.

Eye-catching lighting.

The little things and accent details play a very important role in the case of modern and contemporary kitchens. The lighting fixtures are often bold and interesting. In this case, they take advantage of the overall black and white design.

Kitchen island with fireplace.

Think out of the box when designing your modern kitchen. If it’s part of the open floor plan, the island will most likely be the element that separates the kitchen from the living room so you could include a fireplace in its design.
