Sleek and slick are the buzzwords behind modern and ultra-modern kitchen design these days. One of the most common and popular design themes for kitchens these days is the industrial look. This style presents a cold and professional look that means business. Within many modern designs stainless steel appliances and cooking utensils dominate, and both countertops and floors are made from stone. Concrete and slate are most popular for floors, while granite tends to dominate modern countertops.
Of course, the floors of such kitchen design ideas will be made of wood as well. You have the choice on what type of wood you want to use and on what type of finish to apply on it. Just make sure that it goes well with the other parts of the kitchen and not look out of place.
Concrete or rich colored woods are a great way to create a modern design aesthetic. Most classic or traditional kitchens use white-washed or light colored wood to create the look so go the opposite way for modern! Minimal furniture and features also help to create a modern feel. This also helps with maintenance and clean-up too. Check out these images for inspiration.
Measure your kitchen. Before you do anything else, measure the dimensions of your kitchen so you know exactly how much space you have to work with. This is incredibly useful when it comes to picking out furniture and appliances as you can start to imagine where the different things will fit. A lot of people estimate with their designs and it comes back to bite them at a later stage. Don’t be one of these people.
Every weekend, especially around the summer, many owners put up their house for sale near your area. You can visit these homes when they are open for viewing. You can dash straight into the kitchen and take notes of the layouts or floor plans you like. This is a chance to see what other people’s kitchens look like. Be sure to look at such things as cabinetry, proximity of the stove, sink and refrigerator, countertops and flooring. You should be able to get a feel of what your neighborhood has by visiting several of these open homes. Naturally, the quality will vary in each home you visit, but you will get a firsthand look that will help you find the features or the styles most appealing to you.
