With its earthy tones, basic structure, and freedom of space, this modern kitchen design offers a good balance of masculine and feminine accents to meet the needs of any person or family. The stone countertops and backsplash offer a nice contrasting texture to the smoothness of the lacquer millwork cabinets.
Color blocking, the use of bright contrasting colors on an otherwise bland background, is the key to making this space jump out at the viewer. Clear glass pendant-style light fixtures provide lighting without detracting from the intended focus of the color blocks. Cleverly placed white accessories (in this case a tea set) add a bit of dimension to the foreground to separate the island space from the back wall.
Modern kitchen decoration means sometimes using unusual materials. Many designers in recent years have begun utilizing concrete as a kitchen texture for countertops. However, few have thought to incorporate it into the structure of the kitchen island. This design melds concrete, stainless steel, and wood together in a sculpted island that is a work of art in its own right. Butcher-block style countertops provide a prep surface with the addition of convenient knife storage.
There is no reason why a modern kitchen should cost any more than other kitchen design styles. The whole idea of modern design is to create elegant spaces that use materials efficiently. You won’t need to waste money on needless features or decorations. The beauty of the design will lie in its functionality, meaning that in theory, a modern kitchen should be extremely cost effective. However, any kitchen will be a major investment, so take care when designing your own, and choose design teams to work with who really know the modern style inside out.
