Kitchen Remodeling Guide for a Modern Space

Add White to Brighten Up the Space

kitchen remodelingA staple of a modern kitchen is its simple, clean, and sleek design. Incorporating white is one of the best ways to achieve this look, whether it’s with white cabinets, countertops, backsplash, or a combination. To create a distinctly modern look with your cabinets, opt for a sleek, angular design with minimal hardware.

Incorporate Stainless Steel

Adding industrial-style elements can help create a modern look in your kitchen. Stainless steel is an ideal choice, and there are a number of ways you can incorporate it. Some ideas include stainless steel appliances, tabletops, hardware, or even cabinets for a bold look. Some hanging light fixtures incorporate stainless steel, as do light switches and outlet covers. 

Update Your Countertops

Having old, outdated countertops can detract from a modern look. Upgrade to glossy, sleek countertops to modernize your kitchen. One of the most highly coveted materials is granite, for its beauty and durability. However, it’s also one of the costliest, so if granite isn’t in the budget, quartz, marble, and laminate are great alternatives that can get you more bang for your buck.
