Remodeling your kitchen is a big task, but right now is a great time to do it. If you decide to get modern kitchen cabinets and would like to make sure the rest of the kitchen looks good with them, you have to plan first. So, what needs to be considered when choosing accessories in your modern styled kitchen? There are many things that you should think about when setting the modern style in your kitchen, such as:
Colors, Textures, and Shapes
Modern kitchen cabinets can be any color and shape so once you choose your cabinet style, you have to choose the color and shape. Colors that are going to be in style this year (2016-2017) are bright colors (i.e. red, yellow, orange, purple), rough textures (i.e. marbled, wood grain, raised patterns), and rounded shapes (i.e. ovals, circles, waves). Our design consultants at Teka Kitchen Gallery Inc. can help you find exactly what you need.
Floors, Walls, and Ceilings
If you have modern kitchen cabinets, you need to make sure that the floors, walls, and ceiling are modern styled as well. We have design consultants who can help you by sitting down with you in your home and designing a 3-D blueprint to work with. With bold colored cabinets, you should go with a solid gray, black, or white, or wallpaper with the bright color accented in the design. The ceilings are becoming more important as a focal point of the kitchen. Any reason to look up is good for modern design. A colorful mural or wall decals that bring the eye up to the ceiling and off their electronic devices for a while. Floors should be a glossy laminate in a color that accentuates the walls and cabinets or a textured surface like wooden planks or tile.
Modern appliances include stainless steel with a built in oven and slide-to-open doors that can steam, bake, or grill with the touch of a button. A ceramic or induction cooktop with stainless knobs. A French door refrigerator with an advanced water filtration system, hands-free auto fill water dispenser built into the door, and a smart manager to monitor what is in your refrigerator, when it expires, and more without even opening the door. High tech accessories to go with the high tech world.
Granite, marble, or another natural surface with a sleek and shiny look giving the entire counter the look of one big sheet of glass. Colors can be made to match or contrast your cabinets, depending on the look you would like. Teka Kitchen Gallery can help you choose what goes best with your kitchen cabinet style.
The lighting should be bold and beautiful. Gone are the days of the chandelier, but you can still use a glass accent in your lighting. Anything with a modern style, that matches the rest of the room’s décor. Recessed lighting under the cabinets all around the kitchen are a great touch because they are beautiful as well as practical.
With modern styled cabinets, your plumbing fixtures can be almost any style you like, except for certain types such as antique or old-fashioned. This is a personal style choice although there are many modern updates to plumbing fixtures, like a built in water filter or a detachable sprayer.
