Top 5 Modern Kitchen Designs

Even within the “modern” category there are many different styles to choose from! Your kitchen renovation will depend on a number of factors such as personal preference, budget, and current kitchen layout/size. However, it’s always a good idea to get some inspiration before moving forward with your own renovation. Check out our list of the top 5 modern kitchen designs to find out what you like (and don’t like!)

#1 – Modern With A Classic Touch

It’s easy to see why this gorgeous modern kitchen showcased on Elle Decor made it to our list. The sleek, white cabinetry and white walls contrast perfectly with the dark floors and few darker cabinets attached to the island. Speaking of the island, the beautiful, large island acts as a great place to either prepare food or meet with friends and family. Though this kitchen is modern through and through, the rustic lights add a classic touch to the room. This kitchen shows that just because you go modern doesn’t mean you have to give up all things traditional.


#2 – Light Colours & Open Concept



Sometimes, when people think “modern,” they think shiny and white. However, they are many ways to make a modern kitchen! Modern does not have to mean colourless! If you love the modern design and a splash of colour, you’ll love this kitchen from House & Home. This open concept kitchen/dining room is complete with a large dining table. One side fits chairs, while the other has benches! A unique and fun touch to this modern design. The colourful lights contrast well with the light wood tables and blue-grey floors. Everything about this room is connected in one way or another, bringing together a cozy and contemporary design.


#3 – Wooded Wonder

This beautiful wooden design by HomeDsgn is another great example that you can definitely have an awesome modern look with wooden cabinets! This kitchen sports lots of storage space, as it mixes cabinetry and shelves together in one continuous design. The unique backsplash adds just the right amount of colour to this wooded wonder. The stools fit in perfectly with their wooden tops and sleek modern design. Everything contrasts well against the darker floors.

#4 – Industrial Twist

This ultra-modern kitchen mixes many industrial elements, creating a truly unique kitchen for those with truly unique taste! The hexagonal design begins on the floor and reaches up the wall, tying the design together and bringing your focus to the social side of the room. The kitchen almost feels like everyone’s favourite coffee shop in the heart of any city’s downtown core. The modern kitchen sports an open design and many attractive components such as the unique hanging lights and glassware storage unit above the seating area.

#5 – Minimalist Kitchen

This modern kitchen from HGTV shows you can have your modern kitchen with white cabinets and white flooring while still adding splashes of colour. This kitchen sports a dark backsplash and a hint of colour added to the kitchen island. You will also notice that the island and counters are mostly clear of additional decor, enhancing the minimalist look. However, this helps the few accent pieces added to the kitchen, such as the flowers, really pop!
