Conversely, modern and contemporary kitchen design styles often incorporate up-to-date, present-era materials such as metal, glass and lacquered wood or laminate, and their design is often fairly unadorned, sleek and simple compared to their traditional counterparts. Angular cabinetry styles, simple and straightforward hardware, and flat, efficient surfaces are common in modern kitchen designs. Additionally, these styles may feature bold colors as an opportunity to express a bit of style personality, whereas traditional designs tend more toward muted or historical color schemes.
Macy Guillemot Kitchen Decorating, August 12th , 2017. Many homeowners who opt for a one-walled open kitchen design compensate for the lack of storage in clever ways. A large kitchen island is a familiar sight in a one-walled open kitchen, and islands can be a great storage option, as well as offering several other important uses, from seating and dining to food preparation. Some open kitchen designs even feature islands with sinks, to maintain the classic work triangle between the sink, refrigerator and stove. When it comes to storage, islands in a one-walled open kitchen may feature sets of pull-out drawers, cabinets, and even appliances or convenient features like a lazy Susan or pull-out garbage can. If a one-walled open kitchen design isn‘t in the cards for you and an L-shaped or other design is planned, you can still easily feature a kitchen island if the space allows.

Let your space dictate the scale and style of your removable island. For example, choose a narrow model for a galley kitchen and an open-base style for a space with a modern aesthetic. These workhorse pieces serve double duty in small kitchens by maximizing countertop space and storage through shelving, which readily offers visual access to kitchen supplies and essentials. Combine kitchen island convenience with style by choosing a material like stainless steel or wood that complements your existing finishes; uniformity conveys the feeling of spaciousness in a smaller room.

Lighting is a particularly key feature of open kitchen designs, since open designs tend to incorporate more space than their closed-in counterparts. Finding the right balance of coverage, style and function can be a challenge, but if you focus on the three basic lighting types—main, decorative and task—you should have no problem lighting your open kitchen design. For main lighting, consider a track that encircles the room or runs through the middle of the entire design. A chandelier or large handing pendant can light the dining room space. Task lighting is a great idea for sink, cooking and food prep areas. And finally, decorative lighting can be a great feature for the tops and bottoms of cabinets.

As such, they can cover more intricate designs, such as cathedral doors and arches. The wood grains are very realistic-looking, though the solid colors are more limited. Wood veneers are actual, real wood, and they come in different sheet sizes. With wood veneers, you can change the wood type while maintaining the integrity of all-wood cabinets. Like laminate, wood veneers can also be bought with the adhesive already applied to the back, or you can apply the adhesive yourself.

Stefania Morice Kitchen Decorating, August 19th , 2017. Don‘t believe what you‘ve been told! Small kitchens do indeed have the potential to charm as much as their larger counterparts. Because visual clutter can minimize an already small space, approach your small kitchen redesign with the charge of keeping things simple. Attain simplicity by keeping countertops clutter-free. Take advantage of unused space, like a bare wall, the alcove above the cabinetry or an empty window sill to add decor sparingly. Uniformity also produces simplicity, as evidenced in a monochromatic color palette and grouping similar items. For example, create visual continuity by pairing like items such as a collection of decorative plates, a set of storage baskets or a grouping of photos in coordinating black frames.
