Instead of a striking colour, you could also opt for pastel shades. These tones make for a relaxing and warm atmosphere in any home and you can be pretty generous with these shades too.
As you can see in this project, green pastel tones have been chosen for the kitchen design. The wooden bar stools and white finishes make for a harmonious overall look and feel.
The colour grey is perfect for a modern kitchen as it gives it a very minimalist and uncluttered look and feel.
Combining the grey shades with other colours creates a very impressive look and feel! Don't you love how these design professionals have brought in an olive green tone in the form of the kitchen island?
These designers made the most of a small space. The kitchen cabinets and shelves are conveniently spaced out and there is even a breakfast bar for that morning cup of coffee before rushing to work!
Although there is not that much room, there are still plenty of surfaces for preparing and cooking delicious meals.
What is also striking in this project is the colour. The orange brings in a very warm and inviting atmosphere and shows us that a small kitchen doesn't have to be boring.

Contrary to popular belief, a modern kitchen can also include some rustic elements. As you can see in this kitchen, stone has been included. This works in harmony with the rustic wooden features and the contemporary design.

An interior style is not complete without a personal touch. As you can see in this modern kitchen, several elements were chosen because they give that personal touch to the space. These include the funky bar stools, the cheerful wallpaper and the wooden elements.
The greatest enemy of a modern kitchen is clutter. Therefore you need to keep your kitchen clean and organized.
You can also opt for a white kitchen combined with metal elements. The white will highlight the clean look and feel, while the metal will bring in some edge.
But watch out – you'll need to clean your white kitchen a lot more frequently!
If the dimensions of the space allow, a kitchen island or breakfast bar is very practical and it brings a cozy atmosphere to the space. This is a great casual meeting spot for the family too!
Have a look at these kitchen islands to treasure.
Often, the kitchen opens up into the rest of the home, which doesn't have to be a problem. A kitchen looks very modern and sleek if it spills over into the living space, as we can see in this image.
We can also see how a kitchen island has doubled up as a dining room table, while forming the division between the living room and the kitchen.
A modern kitchen is often decorated in a minimalist style, with a table and some chairs or bar stools completing the picture.
Don't worry about putting too much furniture in your kitchen however. This quickly makes the space look messy and crowded. You don't want a messy kitchen!
What is striking about any modern kitchen is the integration of unique or original designs.
As you can see in this kitchen, two special and funky lamps have been added to the space, which work in harmony with the striking red chairs.
Not only do these look great, but they pinpoint the kitchen bar as the center of the kitchen.
Just don't overdo the funky elements – subtle and simple go a long way!
Do you love nature? Then bring nature into your home!
A number of green plants can be added to the kitchen, creating a lively atmosphere in the house. A modern kitchen therefore does not have to be plant free.
If you do go for plants, make sure you put them in the right place such as the window. Also choose colours that are going to highlight the space.
We conclude that a modern kitchen can be enhanced by opting for a sleek and white design.
In this project, we can see that the kitchen is made up of white kitchen cabinets, a white kitchen island and a white dining table. This ensures a clean and minimalist look and feel.
The striking lamps also brings a personal touch to the space.
