If you're like most people, your kitchen is the heart of your home. It's where you cook, clean and spend time with friends and family. It's also an important part of your design style, which means that upgrading it to create the perfect modern space can be an exciting project for you! We've gathered best tips from Davidson Remodeling for creating a stunning modern kitchen.

Installing a waterfall island.

A waterfall island is a good way to add counter space and create a focal point in your kitchen. They can be used for prep work, food preparation, and dining. It’s best to have one on either side of your kitchen island or peninsula for maximum functionality and design appeal.

Integrating appliances and cabinets.

An important step in designing your dream kitchen is making sure that the style of your appliances match the cabinets. Make sure you have a classic refrigerator, or maybe one with a modern handleless door. A dishwasher with rounded edges will go great with those sleek countertops.

Blending wood and metal for warmth + visual interest.

The trick to balancing a modern kitchen is to use wood for cabinets and metal for appliances. Wood provides warmth and visual interest, while metal is modern and sleek. Mixing these materials together creates the perfect balance of warmth and coolness that makes this style so striking.

Choose a good countertop material.

You should also consider the type of countertop material you want. Granite, quartz, marble and solid surface are all good choices. The best one for you will depend on your kitchen's design and what fits with the rest of your home.

Painting your kitchen walls white.

Painting your kitchen walls white can be a great option for those looking to create a modern design. White is a neutral color that blends well with other colors as well as wood and metal, which are also popular choices in modern kitchens. Painting your kitchen walls white will add brightness and create an overall sleek look. You can even use white cabinets to give the illusion of a bigger space in your small kitchen.

Adding plants to your design.

Plants are a great way to add life to your kitchen and they’re easy to maintain. Adding plants in a modern design doesn't necessarily mean you have to get them in pots or hanging baskets. You can actually use succulents as part of your decor, or even silk plants that look real.

What else can be done to get the modern kitchen look?

  • Start with a modern color palette

When you're designing your kitchen, start with the colors. Use neutral shades such as gray and black to create a calm and relaxing space that doesn't distract from the clean lines of your kitchen.

  • Add some natural light

If you have access to natural light in your home's design, take advantage of it by installing windows near sink areas so there's plenty of natural light during meal prep or cleanup time!
