It might help, when searching for modern kitchen ideas, to narrow your focus. What does 'modern' mean to you? Is it an art movement? Does it refer to a specific type of technology? Is it simply a design idea? Figure out exactly what you want to have in your kitchen before you begin shopping. When you start looking for kitchen ideas and inspiration, narrow your search to the following niches:
Open floor plans - a modern kitchen design trend that has quickly gained popularity is an open floor plan. This creates a very social atmosphere, great for both entertaining and casual nights. The 'social kitchen' often features a large island, which provides space for preparing and cooking food as well as a surface for eating or simply helping the kids with homework!
Technology is typically the first association people make with the word 'modern.' And if you want your kitchen to be technologically advanced you will focus on computer chipped appliances and computers. Today appliances use computers to set temperatures, timers, food expiration dates, and even alerts for inventory restocking. A modern kitchen may very well include a large flat screen TV to display recipes, family calendars, household schedules, and it's certainly more fun to cook while watching videos, searching websites, or listening to music.
Obviously these two approaches to designing the modern kitchen are not mutually exclusive. It is entirely possible, especially with the help of modern designers, to fuse these two approaches to the modern kitchen into a single design. Modern kitchen design is subjective. It is more about making sure that the person who uses the kitchen is happy. Good modern designers will be able to help you infuse your kitchen with modern art elements and modern technology. Of course, if you prefer to focus on a single approach (a modern art approach with classic appliances, for instance) that is quite possible.
Contemporary furniture - if you've decided you want a modern kitchen, don't just update the cabinets and countertops. There are a multitude of contemporary chairs, tables and other pieces of furniture - you have literally hundreds of options. Instead of buying traditional or plain kitchen chairs, go for contemporary stools to go with your island. Little touches like this can go a long way.
When choosing furniture for your kitchen, ask yourself if you want to use art as inspiration behind your furniture choices. Modern art employs simple shapes, clean lines and bold color choices. The fewer design elements, the happier the artist becomes. A kitchen chair, for example, will consist usually of a single-piece seat that sits on four straight legs. The kitchen cabinets should be in simple shapes: squares or rectangles with simply shaped handles. These cabinets should be in bold colors or white. Chrome handles are common in the modern kitchen. If these ideas do not appeal to you, your kitchen might be based upon other design elements.
