A modern kitchen is one that makes use of the limited space that most of us have in urban quarters, even as it brings in a sense of style to dwell in the often open spaces. If you have been looking at updating your kitchen to make it a more modern space, then here are 14 tips to help you do so in an effortless manner!

1. ​Ceramic for a neat and elegant finish

Ceramic has a smooth and even look that matches well with sleek surroundings and all kinds of glossy or gleaming fittings.

2. ​High quality and robust material

Use counter tops that are robust and withstand high temperatures. For this, you will need to choose high quality material such as natural stone, solid surface counter tops which mimic stone or laminate.

3. ​Smaller appliances for bigger style

Installing and using small appliances and fittings can lead to an expansion of the space in the visual sense. This cozy kitchen was designed by the architects at STUDIODWG ARQUITETURA E INTERIORES LTDA.

4. ​Make use of corners

Transform even the smallest corners of your home in order to create the kitchen of your dreams. Make a statement with bold colours and a defining scheme.

5. ​Shelves for a smart bar

You can create a smart bar in your kitchen by installing a shelf over the main wall of your open kitchen. Use spiffy lighting to make a lasting impression.
