4 Modern Design Ideas for Your Kitchen


A traditional kitchen with a modern twist.

What’s the best way to pick out the design for your kitchen remodel? We think it’s important to, first and foremost, do an assessment of what you’re unhappy with in your current kitchen. Then, thorough research is required to learn about what your options are and whether they’re a good fit for your kitchen. You may want to pin ideas to a board or create a scrapbook of your favorite clippings from magazines and online sites.

But the most important step is to speak to a contractor, lay out your expectations, and ensure that you have everything you need to get started. Still, before you do, we want to help you take a step in the right direction, with an overview of the types of designs people are choosing for their kitchen remodels throughout Los Angeles. Read on to see 4 modern design ideas, and then start researching the kitchen your heart is set on!

Contemporary Kitchens

If you really want to go all out and have a modern kitchen that will draw oohs and ahhs from your houseguests, there are many ways to achieve this. In general, a contemporary kitchen is made up of sleek lines, with flat cabinets and square, flat cabinet doors.

A contemporary look can be a great fit for those who’ve been wanting stainless steel appliances. In addition, you can have lots of fun with the colors and architectural fixtures within modern kitchens. You can add a pop of color to cabinets and walls, for example, or go industrial with commercial-grade sinks.

Farmhouse Kitchens

For a kitchen to be “modern,” it does not necessarily need to have a futuristic “modernist” look to it. The same modern appliances can be added but with a classic look that makes a farmhouse kitchen feel like home.

Farmhouse kitchens are known to have large apron-front sinks and classic range tops, making them ideal for cooking. Vintage details and open shelving will remind you of the past, while a large kitchen table makes the room feel welcoming to all who visit.

Cultural/Themed Kitchens

You can always theme your kitchen around your own personal style, or around a culture whose culinary and cooking style you admire. For example, you can make a smaller kitchen feel like a Parisian bistro with intimate lighting, window awnings, and cookware that hangs from the walls on display. You can turn a larger kitchen into a modern Asian-inspired style with light woods, a professional cooktop, pendant lighting, and a minimalist design.

And, of course, you can always theme your kitchen around your own personal interests or trade up kitchen accessories for the latest trends.

Classic Kitchen

For a kitchen that will stand the test of time, there’s always a demand for traditional style. A classic, traditional kitchen will have plenty of familiar details, but you still have the chance to customize it to your own needs. Classic wood finishes or white cabinetry, smooth marble countertops or a sleek black counter, neutral palettes and subway tile or bright backlashes: there are so many possibilities!
