For most families and couples, the kitchen is the space in the home which is used most. Given this fact, it makes perfect sense to really invest time, energy and money into this room when it comes to a remodel. Whilst traditionally designed kitchens have grown in popularity in recent years, we are seeing a much larger move by consumers to create chic, modern kitchens. Kitchen trends don’t come and go at great speed, and today’s modern kitchen style will certainly remain in style for many years to come.

Let’s take a look at some tips on creating the perfect modern kitchen for your home.

Color Options

There are predominantly two colors which help you to deliver a great looking kitchen, and they are black and white. Both of these colors will help you to create a foundation for your kitchen and they combine perfectly with the metal finishes of kitchen taps, wooden flooring or brightly colored tiles. When it comes to selecting your counter and cabinet colors, these are the two main tones to look for.

Island Life

If you have the space to play with then creating an island in your kitchen is a great way to give it a modern feel. The island can be used for eating, food prep and for social gatherings too. Even a small island can deliver a really style feature for your kitchen, and the added space is great when it comes to storage.


Whereas a more traditional kitchen welcomes the clutter of hanging pans and packed shelves, a modern look kitchen cuts back on this and instead offers a minimalist feel. Using sleek kitchen mixers rather than multiple taps, faux cupboard doors to fill in space and cabinets without handles, you can create the minimalist dream which so many modern kitchens offer.

Functional Style 

Modern kitchens are not just about delivering a sleek look and minimalism, they should also offer smart functionality which help you to cook and clean in a more efficient way. From multi-functional kitchen sinks to gadgets such as a tap above the stove and Smart technology on fridges, the modern kitchen is every bit as functional as it is stylish.

Statement Splashback

Using black and white as your base gives you the chance to really deliver style statements in other ways, and a colorful splashback is just one way in which you can achieve this. The splashback is primarily functional, ensuring that walls don’t get covered after cooking, but it is also a great place for you to introduce your own unique style.

Everything in Place

And finally a core feature of modern kitchens is that everything has its own place, something which traditional kitchens couldn’t offer. In this kind of kitchen cabinets are designed specifically for the herbs, tools, gadgets or crockery which will live there. This not only helps you to maintain a tidy kitchen, it also looks stylish and adds to that perfect combination of functionality and class which a modern kitchen can offer.

If you are looking to renovate your kitchen and give it a modern look, these are some tips which you should look to bear in mind.
