Read this short article about some of the significant trends in modern Kitchens if you are getting ready to make your kitchen more trendy than ever. One of the hottest trends in Kitchens is the interplay between vintage and futuristic elements. To create a stylish kitchen that looks like it’s from another time, consider combining vintage furniture with today’s latest technology.
The first modern Kitchens were designed in the early twentieth century. They looked like older homes, because of their design elements like massive painted walls and the use of mass-produced furniture. As the materials and techniques for building Kitchens improved, they began to look less like old homes and more like contemporary homes. There are still older homes that look modern, but most modern Kitchens are much more sleek and polished than they did in the early days.
Furniture was the first mass-produced, but now this is starting to change. Of course, Kitchens do not always use the same kind of furniture, so try to incorporate something that looks vintage into your modern kitchen. For example, if you were using an old dresser in your kitchen, try to find a similar-looking piece that was mass-produced. The best parts for looking like vintage pieces are the ones that are designed to be mass-produced. Look for a dresser with doors or a piece that has been painted a neutral color.
Just as the furniture changes to the new era
So does the interior design of Kitchens. The furniture in the kitchen used to be mostly made of wood. But now many people are choosing to go with granite or other stone countertops. The surface on these countertops is smooth and usually reflects light beautifully. If you’re lucky enough to have a large bay window in your kitchen, consider using those stones as countertops instead of purchasing a new glass table and a new set of glass coffee tables. Again, look for a dull gray surface or an off white color.
Other changes are happening in the style of Kitchens. Not long ago, kitchen sinks were made of stainless steel, but now they are being replaced with porcelain basins. The porcelain basins have a matte finish, so they will blend in with the walls, even though they may be a little hefty. The porcelain is also dishwasher safe, so you won’t have to worry about scratches or stains on your countertops or tables. Another significant change in Kitchen fittings is the variety of lighting.
For many of the newer trends in Modern Kitchens, light is all that matters. To do this, you’ll want to get wall sconces for each island and sconce holders for your island islands. You can also get faucet shades with matching handles. There are also several lights installed throughout the kitchen to bring light into every nook and cranny. You can find fixtures that can mimic an electric stove, massive chandeliers, and wall sconces.
Stainless steel, chrome, brass, bronze, and gold appliances
In the past, stainless steel appliances were the norm. But now you’ll find many instruments in a chrome or pewter finish. Silverware holders are becoming more popular as well. You’ll find brass, bronze, and gold plated sinks and cutlery as well.
Modern Kitchens have evolved, but they are not nearly as hip or funky as they once were. However, there are still many of the same furniture choices, the same themes. And styles that can be paired with other contemporary Kitchens. The trend is to combine “modern” with “hippie.”
