Believe it or not, once upon a time, furniture was purely functional. Furniture designers did not make an effort to put any sort of artistic design into their furniture-the furniture was strictly utilitarian. Today, however, modern kitchen chairs are works of art! Some people assume that modern chairs and contemporary chairs need to be painted in certain ways and be made from specific materials. The truth is that as long as your chairs have artistic merit and can be multifunctional they can be considered contemporary chairs and modern chairs.
Some people might scoff at the idea of a chair being a work of art but contemporary kitchen chairs are often exactly that. The sign of the modern kitchen chair is that it does not have to serve any real purpose for people to appreciate it on an artistic level. Are your hairs artistic enough to fulfill that requirement? Could you sit one of your chairs in the living room, not put anything on it and still have people admire it for its artistic merits? If so, then you have modern kitchen chairs!
Minimal décor - modern kitchens are meant to be minimalist; the old saying 'less is more' holds true for contemporary kitchens. A few open shelves, a modern picture or painting for the wall, a small backsplash - all these design elements are simple and modern.
Stainless steel - stainless steel has prevailed as one of the top finishes in modern kitchens, and this trend probably isn't going anywhere for a while! Easy to clean, stainless steel can be used for countertops, cabinets, backsplashes and appliances (microwaves, ovens, sinks, toasters - you name it!).
Appliances in your new kitchen need not be the most recent release from a major appliance company. While having the fancy new refrigerator or the hottest new 5 burner cook top may be nice, does it fit into your overall decorating scheme and budget? Believe it or not, a retro refrigerator, if working properly, could be the right fit for your new kitchen. Even your kitchen hood exhaust fan from a different time period can work, as long as it functions fine and does not pose a danger to the rest of your house.
Neutral colors - not only do modern kitchens thrive on neutral tones, but you also won't find a lot of different colors. If you want to add splashes of color to contrast the neutral shades, it's fine as long as you don't go overboard. It's best to stick with just a few bright colors to balance out the space, not five or six different colors. Too many different shades can be overwhelming.
