Small Modern Kitchen Ideas

A modern style works well in small kitchens since it focuses on clean lines and performance. A modern kitchen will feel neat and contemporary. Modern kitchens reduce clutter and create functional work areas. It can save you money using modern materials for any small space that is big on style.

Modern Materials

Modern kitchens use man made and natural materials. Search for cabinets with a frosted glass insert having a maple wood facing. Horizontal upper cabinets which the door opens from the top take presctiption the cutting edge of design. Large steel handles and drawer pulls will improve your existing cabinets. A stainless steel island can behave as a work surface and eating area in a tiny kitchen that doesn’t have a breakfast nook.

Bring glass to your kitchen to give the illusion more light in a small space. A Plexiglas or tile glass backsplash adds subtle color without overwhelming a little kitchen. Look for counter tops, cabinets and furniture with straight lines which are evocative of modern style. Curves are hardly ever found in a modern style and may make a small kitchen feel cluttered.


Keep accessories low in modern design. This really is perfect for a small kitchen where space reaches a premium. Keep your countertops free from clutter so you can use every sq . inch of countertop as a work surface. Store appliances in cupboards for any cleaner look. If you have a colorful mixer display it on the sturdy floating shelf for additional color in the room. Use magnet strips on your wall to store knives and metal spice jars while giving your parking space modern style.

Modern Colors

Modern kitchen design plays on neutral and bold colors. Stick to a color palette that includes black, silver and white for any modern kitchen. Use this color scheme on more expensive items for example flooring, cabinets and appliances. You can transition your design style into another look inexpensively if you are using neutrals. Bring in a pop of color for example red, orange or turquoise through dinner plates, barstools or a tile backsplash. Paint the walls a white for a modern look that will not overwhelm a small room.


Appliances may dwarf a little kitchen. Consider slightly smaller appliances to release space. Space-saving appliances often come in condos or rentals and therefore are fully functional. Stainless steel is popular in modern kitchens but white or black appliances will also blend right into a modern color palette if you’re focusing on a budget.
