A modern kitchen, whether it’s part of an open plan or if it’s a separate area, would usually have a simple and clean décor. The furniture would have simple lines without unnecessary ornaments or decorative details. Also, special attention is usually given to the way the space is used and organized. It’s why modern kitchens have lots of storage space, most often hidden in unexpected places.
