Integrated appliances - those interested in modern kitchens often want their homes to match their contemporary, on-the-go lifestyle. If you don't cook a lot, drawer dishwashers (designed for smaller loads) and under-counter fridges are perfect - and they look good in modern kitchens!
For the purposes of this article, we will use the terms modern and contemporary interchangeably. While in terms of art history the two are very different, when looking at furniture, there is not a lot of difference between the two.
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.
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.
On the other hand, you might have to have pre-meals in the kitchen to enhance the cooking experience. Cooking time can actually be more enjoyable when you include either your household or your guests. It winds up being yet another opportunity to share life together. You may pick to have typical seats or stools from which your household can delight in light treats as they wait for the real meal.
When you take a modern-art centric approach, you will want to focus on clean lines. Clean lines are incredibly important to the modern art design. Kitchen designers will tell you that, if you want a modern arty 'feel' to your kitchen, you will want clean and straight lines. You want clean counters and clean walls. In this design, modern kitchen will be free of knick knacks or other decorations. Any counter top appliances, like a toaster, a coffee maker or a microwave, will match the kitchen's color scheme and either blend in to the walls and counter surrounding them or stand out starkly in contrast. These kitchens, according to modern designers, are free of wall decorations, flowers or other superfluous elements.
