If you’re looking to remodel your kitchen, there are plenty of ways to go modern. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the choices out there and end up making decisions that you’ll regret later on. That’s why we’ve compiled this list: it has everything you need for a simple yet professional-looking kitchen design.
Take a cue from Scandinavian kitchens.
Take a cue from Scandinavian kitchens.
Scandinavian kitchens are very minimalist, featuring clean lines, white walls and floors, and lots of open space. They also have plenty of storage space–you’ll see sleek cabinets with glass doors or cupboards with sliding doors that hide pots and pans from view. Scandinavian kitchens often feature an island or peninsula that separates the cooking area from the rest of the room for increased safety when working near hot stoves or ovens. Natural light is another key element in this design style; many modern Scandinavian kitchens have skylights to bring in natural light during winter months when sun hours are low (or if you live somewhere like Alaska!).
Minimalist kitchen design.
Minimalist design is a great way to make your kitchen feel bigger and more open. It’s also perfect for small spaces, as it doesn’t take up much room visually or physically. Minimalism is environmentally friendly, since it uses fewer materials and resources than other styles of decorating might do. This makes it affordable too!
If you’re someone who likes to cook at home often (or if you just want an easy cleanup), then minimalist … READ MORE >>>
I’ve always loved cooking, but I used to dread my kitchen. The cabinets were outdated and mismatched, the countertops were dull, the floor looked like it belonged in a basement and there was no way anyone would ever want to eat what I made in that room. So finally I decided it was time for a serious renovation. But before you dive into your own project—whether you’re upgrading one room or an entire home—here are some of the lessons I learned along the way:
Plan for the worst.
When planning your kitchen renovation, it’s important to think about the worst-case scenario. You have a contract with your contractor, but what if they don’t live up to their end of the deal? What if they go out of business or get hit by a bus before the project is done? What if you find out that your beautiful marble countertops are actually made from asbestos and will kill anyone who comes into contact with them?
You should always plan for these kinds of things–that way, when something does go wrong (and it will), you’ll be prepared for whatever comes next!
Check out a few stores.
- Check out a few stores. When comparing prices and materials, it’s important to note that the same product can be listed at different prices from one store to another. Make sure you’re comparing apples with apples by checking out both the price and quality of materials at each place you visit–and don’t forget to ask if

If you’re like me, you spend a lot of time in your kitchen. It’s where I make breakfast, lunch and dinner—and sometimes snacks. So why not design your space to be as happy as possible? This is how I did it:
First things first.
Before you can design a kitchen that’s perfect for you, it’s important to organize the space. The first step is to clean out all of your cabinets and drawers and organize them in a way that makes sense to you. You might choose to put all baking supplies in one drawer or grouping together similar items like spices and oils into their own section. Use labels as much as possible so that when someone else uses the kitchen they know where things go with minimal effort on their part (and yours!).
What’s your style?
Your kitchen is a reflection of your personality and taste, so it’s important for you to think about what style best suits yours.
Style can be defined in many ways: the look, feel and functionality of your kitchen. It also reflects who you are as an individual and how you want others to perceive you. A person with a modern style might prefer sleek stainless steel appliances while someone with more traditional tastes might choose white cabinetry with dark granite countertops instead. The key here is not just what looks good but how well all these elements work together in order to create an efficient workspace where food preparation becomes enjoyable rather … READ MORE >>>
I’ve always wanted to do a small kitchen makeover. My kitchen was dark and outdated, and I knew it needed some updating. So, when we moved into our new house last year, I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to finally get started on my dream project. Painting it white brightened everything up—and made it feel bigger! New cabinet hardware and knobs add a modern touch to our old cabinets. These simple changes made such a big difference in our kitchen!
I’ve always wanted to do a small kitchen makeover.
I’ve always wanted to do a small kitchen makeover. I’ve lived in this house for over 10 years and spent many hours in the kitchen, so it was time to give it some TLC!
I enjoy cooking and baking, but my favorite part of the room is definitely that huge window overlooking our backyard. It makes me feel like I’m on vacation every time I look out at all that green grass and sunshine!
The only thing I don’t like about this room is how dark it gets when we close those blinds during winter months–but thankfully now they’re open again!
My kitchen was dark and outdated.
My kitchen was dark and dated. It had no personality and was a place to eat, not cook. The cabinets were old and beat up, the countertops were worn down, there was no ventilation for the stovetop or oven (which led to major cooking fires) and it just seemed like everything … READ MORE >>>
Less is more in a small kitchen
If your kitchen is small, you can maximize its space by using contrasting colors and textures. For example, a light-colored backsplash with a dark gray accent will draw the eye. You can also add bookshelves on the walls to create visual interest. Open shelves against a textured wall create a warm, rustic feel and can help distract from the lack of space.
Bright colors enlarge a small kitchen, making it feel more spacious. Consider using a bright shade of paint on the walls and cabinetry. This will give the room a welcoming feel during the day and set the mood at night. Yellow is the perfect color for small kitchens, since it can be used on both the walls and the cabinetry. Add yellow dishware and powder-coated barstools to brighten up the room. Another idea is to paint the doors of one cabinet or the pantry door in a bright shade.
A small kitchen can still have a stylish design with the addition of plants and colorful accessories. You can also use paint or open shelving to create a more spacious and airy look. Avoid crowding your kitchen with too many pots or items. Instead, consider adding some potted plants.
Vertical shelves in a small kitchen are an excellent way to maximize storage space. You can run them up and down the wall or even install them at a slight angle. This way, you can make use of … READ MORE >>>
