Do you want a kitchen that is spacious, aesthetically pleasing, stylish, and practical? Then you would need to think about getting a contemporary design for your kitchen. A modern kitchen offers functionality and streamlined space solutions that are suitable for a kitchen of any size. But, what makes a kitchen design contemporary? Let’s take a look. 

The Backsplash

Your backsplash is usually the first thing anyone sees when they walk into your kitchen. That also means it is the first indicator of a contemporary kitchen. There are new backsplash trends that create an appealing minimal feel to your kitchen. Many interior designers have suggested ditching your cement backsplash and getting a marble or tiled one. Unlike the cement backlashes of back-in-the-day, these designs are sleek and modern. They are also more durable and easy to maintain, perfectly fitting into a contemporary kitchen’s aim. Therefore, consider the practical choice of going for white or grey tone or rectilinear porcelain tiled backsplashes.

Tiled Flooring

Your contemporary kitchen should offer practicality such that it is easy to use. Well, you would need the right floors to achieve that design. And although a modern kitchen promotes minimalism, it does not mean you cannot get a little color or pattern in there. You can choose to install tiles on your kitchen floor, with a bit of a pattern. Suppose you have a white color scheme for your kitchen. In that case, ensuring that every aspect of your kitchen is white would be, well, too white. Therefore, add some creativity in your use of color and patterns while ensuring safety and functionality by using porcelain or natural stone tiles to avoid slipping and sliding.

The Cabinetry And Countertops

The cabinets and countertops of a contemporary kitchen are functional. In some cases, modern appliances are built into the contemporary kitchen cabinets to create a more uniform appearance and save space. For the counters, you should consider adopting a granite pattern or a classic soapstone design. These make it easier to clean and also create an ambiance of elegance and modernity.

Light Fixtures That Make A Statement

Lights make all the difference in a room, so place some in your glass cabinets to offer a practical solution for when it’s darker. You can place lights under the cabinets as well to illuminate the countertops. You can also get pendant lighting to create a sharp yet classy statement. You should ensure that your kitchen also makes way for natural light to seep through to make your kitchen look spacious, creating a minimal yet spacious kitchen.

Updated Hardware

Some interior designers regard your kitchen hardware as jewelry. And like jewelry, your kitchen hardware adds some spice to the room’s overall ambiance and style. This is why it is vital to change worn-out door knobs and handles. You can also repaint some of these hardware elements to create a more appealing look.
