The New Modern Kitchen

new and modern kitchen design ideas

The design of the new modern kitchen has forever changed.  The new
modern kitchen is far from the cold, showroom-looking kitchens that were
once considered contemporary.  The design savvy homeowners are aware
that a modern or contemporary design has more to
do with the functionality and use of the space than with the final
(outlook) of the room.  The main focus in remodeling or designing a
kitchen nowadays is about planning and making the right choices to make
life in a kitchen more enjoyable and productive. 
The pictures below show some images of what a modern kitchen design
looks like today.

Five Characteristics of Modern Kitchen Design

A smart kitchen layout 
The layout of a kitchen is probably the
first point of reference for any designer.  Not only it should be easy
and functional but it should also provide a comfortable atmosphere for
social gathering.  This
is the place where we usually get together with close friends and
family to cook, drink and laugh together.

Durable and beautifully designed kitchen appliances
When selecting appliances stainless steel is still, the first choice.  Not only are they modern looking but they are also beautiful.

Family first
Kitchens with double functions such as eat-in area and perhaps an area where kids can do their homework are the norm now a days.

New modern design elements
White marble is perhaps the most prevalent design element in a modern
kitchen at the moment. Subway tiles is a timeless style that goes well
in any kitchen design and it’s constant use makes them a modern choice.
 White, light color cabinetry or high gloss
finished cabinetry is also a very modern selection.  Open shelving,
especially in small spaces, can make all the difference.
Color palette

Today’s kitchens tend to stay away from saturated colors
and prints.  They share either a monochromatic color scheme or a two tone.  I uploaded this kitchen below into my pinterest account 5 weeks ago where you can see not two but three different colors with the green standing out.
