20 of the Most Beautiful Modern Kitchen Ideas

The kitchen is the hub of the home. Everyone uses the kitchen for more than just eating a meal; it is where you gather to visit, entertain, work on homework, maybe pay pills, and spend time with family, cooking and laughing together. You want your kitchen to be as inviting as it is functional, so choosing the right equipment, décor and fixtures can set the mood and theme for the room that gets used more than any other room in the house. Dressing your kitchen up in a modern design can bring your kitchen up-to-date and give it a more stylish and desirable appeal. Whether you plan to sell your home or live there forever, giving your kitchen a facelift can give it a more clean and streamlined look and make it more modern and updated. If you are wanting to give your kitchen a modern overhaul, but do not know where to start, here are some tips.

1. Countertops

Your countertops are one of the main features of your kitchen and take most of the brunt of the activity in the room. You use your countertops for everything, from chopping to preparing the meals and more. There are many different types of countertop materials, including marble, ceramic tile, Corian, or laminate. Choosing the right type of counter tops can really make your kitchen stand out and add style, but it should also be functional for how you live your life. You want a countertop that fits your budget, how much care you want to invest each day, and what type of lifestyle you live, with how much you use your counters and how hard on them you tend to be.

2. Faucets

There are many types of faucets and fixtures and choosing one that is perfect for how you cook and clean, will make life easier in the kitchen. For instance, a gooseneck faucet makes filling pots easier, not to mention, cleanup is a breeze when you have lots of space between the faucet and pots, pans and dishes, to maneuver them around in the sink. They are also sleek looking and give a more modern touch to your kitchen.

3. Cabinetry

Aside your countertops, your cabinetry is the next biggest feature of your kitchen and gets the most attention. Your cabinets should be functional as well as beautiful and for a more modern look, you may want to steer away from the norm open and close door cabinetry. Try adding some cabinets with pocket doors, swinging doors, or lazy Susan cabinets. Glass doors or open shelving cabinets allow you to display some of your best dishes or other decorative items. Choose unique handles with a modern flair for a more updated look to your cabinets and kitchen.
