Home renovations are a great way to turn your house into the home you have always wanted. The kitchen is one of the most common home renovation projects. There is so much to work with and so many valuable additions you can make in the kitchen. If you love to cook, love contemporary designs and having a functional space, the following are some modern kitchen remake ideas you can try in your home:
The kitchen island is a great way to create a more multifunctional workspace in your kitchen. A kitchen island is a must-have feature in any contemporary kitchen design. It creates a lot of workspace, can also double up as a breakfast bar or dining area and leaves a lot of room for storage underneath. You can use bar stools around the kitchen island.
Pendant lights work great over the kitchen island. These lights hang low on long cables. At least two or three pendant lights in a row can really light up the kitchen area. Pendant lights come with a variety of lampshades in lovely designs.
Granite and marble counter tops
Contemporary kitchen design is largely associated with sterile, clean cut and geometrical edges. Nothing fits the bill better than granite and marble counter tops. They have such an elegant and lustrous finish that glistens well with good lighting. Granite counter tops are also very durable and easy to maintain. They also come in a variety of cool hues of grays and browns that work well with almost any color scheme you choose for the kitchen.
Repainting your kitchen walls can also give it a trendy new look. There are two main options, go bold with bright statement colors or opt for the monochromatic theme. You can choose colors such as all white, all grey or all ivory for monochromatic designs that are still very elegant.
The kitchen cabinet designs contribute to about forty percent of the kitchen design and appearance. Contemporary kitchen cabinets include minimal detailing on the cabinet doors, sleek metallic handles or no handles at all. With such cabinets, you need to push the edge of the door inwards slightly so it can spring open.
Kitchen cabinets without handles give the cabinets such a minimalistic look. You can also add lighting under the kitchen cabinets to improve lighting by removing the shadows cast by the cabinets.
