Modern and Fun Kitchen

Modern design doesn’t have to be completely minimal, nor void of interesting colors and shapes. For example, this small kitchen obeys most of the tenets of modern design, but inserts a whimsical backsplash tile and upholstered bench to give the space a vibrant personality.

 

Designer Notes

This kitchen is flush with modern design elements, but it’s a strip of tile with post-modern flair that demands attention. The large format rectangular tiles feature iterations of artistic circles in orange and chocolate on an almond-colored background. The bench seating picks up on the hue from the tile.  While the rest of the kitchen isn’t quite as sprightly it provides easy-on-the-eyes modern details that don’t overwhelm the space with additional colors or curves. The slab door cabinets, which provide strong modern design lines, have a dark peppercorn stain and offer lots of storage with no visual clutter. The two major horizontal surfaces – the quartz countertop and the maple floor – are both in white, offering a sharp contrast to the cabinetry.
