Design Your Kitchen for Seamless Function

Home RemodelerThe concept of a home kitchen has been upgraded from a functional space to the heartbeat of your home. Homeowners do not just use their kitchen for cooking – they also use it to come together as a family and entertain friends. To ensure this, modern home designers are prioritizing seamless open plan spaces that flow with the rest of the home and encourage socialization. Here are some of the top tips you can use to create a similar seamless kitchen in your home.

Install Seamless Cabinets

Cabinets that do not have handles offer a seamless look to a kitchen, enhancing its modern aesthetic. The look opens up more space and makes the kitchen look clutter-free and minimal at the same time. You can also go the extra mile by painting the cabinets all the same color for a chic look.

Merge Modern with Traditional

You should also consider vintage wooden kitchen cabinets made from traditional solid wood with unique handles. Adding built-in appliances, such as a stove or a chimney will add to the seamless look.

Add Pendant Lights

A pendant light suspended on top of the kitchen island or table will add visual appeal to your kitchen in a modern way. The warm glow of the LED lights will make the space look cozier and bring the décor of the space together. Also, go for under-cabinet lighting to add a cozy element.

Add Color Smartly

Vibrant colors, such as red and yellow, may make a kitchen seem quirky and fun, but shades of grey can bring the aesthetics of this space together. Kitchen islands or cabinets painted grey-green or blue-grey can add a sophisticated touch to a kitchen. If your kitchen has a wooden floor, consider painting it these colors for a unique look.

Consider Metal Hardware

A few years ago, cabinet hardware used to be designed to blend into kitchen cabinets. Today, we have more options allowing homeowners and interior designers to be more creative. Add warmth and charm to the space by drawing attention to the shape and size of the hardware you choose with nickel or brushed silver options. If you want to renovate your kitchen down the road, changing the hardware can help you get a new look and make the space look more seamless.
