Katy Massey. Kitchen Redesign Ideas. October 18th , 2018.
When choosing furniture for your kitchen, ask yourself if you want to use art as inspiration behind your furniture choices. Modern art employs simple shapes, clean lines and bold color choices. The fewer design elements, the happier the artist becomes. A kitchen chair, for example, will consist usually of a single-piece seat that sits on four straight legs. The kitchen cabinets should be in simple shapes: squares or rectangles with simply shaped handles. These cabinets should be in bold colors or white. Chrome handles are common in the modern kitchen. If these ideas do not appeal to you, your kitchen might be based upon other design elements.
Integrated appliances - those interested in modern kitchens often want their homes to match their contemporary, on-the-go lifestyle. If you don't cook a lot, drawer dishwashers (designed for smaller loads) and under-counter fridges are perfect - and they look good in modern kitchens!
Modern art is made up of everything from the last of the impressionist paintings to Andy Warhol's soup cans and everything that came between them. Something that got painted five minutes ago could be considered modern. Thankfully, when it comes to figuring out whether your chairs are modern chairs in your kitchen. There are just two criteria to keep in mind: are the chairs multi functional and are they artistic enough to be appreciated on their own while not serving any practical purpose? What does that mean?
When it comes to designing the modern kitchen, people typically take one of two design paths. The first path uses modern art as inspiration to create the overall look of the design. Kitchens, of course, are everywhere (any kitchen that uses an electric or gas stove and oven can technically be considered modern). But another tack for the kitchen design is to choose the latest and most recent technologically advanced kitchen appliances and features available. These features are then surrounded with decorative elements of the designer's choosing. Qualified modern designers will help you figure out a balance between the two tacks.
Obviously these two approaches to designing the modern kitchen are not mutually exclusive. It is entirely possible, especially with the help of modern designers, to fuse these two approaches to the modern kitchen into a single design. Modern kitchen design is subjective. It is more about making sure that the person who uses the kitchen is happy. Good modern designers will be able to help you infuse your kitchen with modern art elements and modern technology. Of course, if you prefer to focus on a single approach (a modern art approach with classic appliances, for instance) that is quite possible.
Technology is typically the first association people make with the word 'modern.' And if you want your kitchen to be technologically advanced you will focus on computer chipped appliances and computers. Today appliances use computers to set temperatures, timers, food expiration dates, and even alerts for inventory restocking. A modern kitchen may very well include a large flat screen TV to display recipes, family calendars, household schedules, and it's certainly more fun to cook while watching videos, searching websites, or listening to music.
For the purposes of this article, we will use the terms modern and contemporary interchangeably. While in terms of art history the two are very different, when looking at furniture, there is not a lot of difference between the two.
