Steel and other metal compounds will be a good way to add some modernist excitement to the kitchen, and are similarly hard wearing. The key is to find a worktop material for your modern kitchen which will be easy to clean, durable and which fits into your overall design. Don’t buy an exotic stone worktop, just because it looks great on its own. How does it fit into your plan? One element out of place can spoil the balance of a modern kitchen.
A great idea to create a modern kitchen design is to choose a firm contrast between the floor and the cabinets and walls. This doesn’t mean clashing red tiles with blue painted surfaces. Instead, look at cool grey stone and wooden cabinets, or go for a light cream or white colour scheme. Bright colours will generally upset the harmony of the overall design and should be avoided.
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.
The colour will come from the odd decorative feature or flowers, not from the major elements of the modern kitchen. Kitchen islands are a nice feature, which allows you to include modernist stools and add more functionality to the kitchen for coffees and light bites. When lighting is used, it tends to be better to use recessed lights that are built into the kitchen fittings.
