Must haves for a modern kitchen design

When you tackle a kitchen renovation, you have to consider the kinds of finishes and fixtures you’ll use. Elsewhere in our Inspired series, we showed you some style staples of a cottage kitchen. Here we’re focusing on what goes into a modern kitchen decor.

A commercial-style kitchen faucet is a great addition to any modern kitchen design, not only because of its shiny chrome finish and sleek design but because of its high-powered sprayer. We love a faucet that marries form and function!

A great workspace is a must in any kitchen, but you’ll find a large multi-tasking island in most modern kitchens because they create an open floor plan when used as a division between cooking and living spaces. They are also great because they’re so versatile! You can handle food prep on one side while friends and family are seated on the other. It’s also a great spot for serving when guests are over!

Flat-front cabinetry gives your kitchen that clean, sleek look that is indicative of a modern space. Whether you opt for plain wood or painted, we love the way a simple cabinet door creates a seamless look that you find in modern kitchen decor.

Contemporary kitchens often have a waterfall countertop, where the countertop material extends down the side of the cabinetry and meets the floor. It creates a long, beautiful line that feels both luxe and restrained.
