Is your kitchen looking a bit tired and outdated? If so, you might be looking to give your kitchen a revamp. These five steps will help you to create the modern kitchen of your dreams.

1. A kitchen island

If you’re looking to modernize your kitchen you might well consider investing in a kitchen island. Not only do kitchen islands look beautiful, but they are versatile spaces that can enhance your kitchen. You can use a kitchen island as a breakfast bar, or a space to relax with a glass of wine. Kitchen islands give you more space for cooking preparation, plus space for storage. These can be quite the investment, yet they are a great way to add value to your kitchen.

2. Hardwood flooring

3. A farmhouse sink

Rustic sinks are back, but with a modern twist. If you want to design a trendy kitchen, what you need is a farmhouse sink. These are deep sinks with an exposed side to the front. The idea is that the sink blends with the surrounding counters. A farmhouse sink is both beautiful and practical. You can wash large pots and pans with ease, (these sinks make washing up a real breeze)!

4. Modern art work

One real easy way to modernize your kitchen is to choose some modern artwork. With the right artwork you’ll enhance your kitchen space, and create a contemporary look. It can be difficult to choose artwork for the kitchen, and you may not have much wallspace to work with.

If you’re lacking wall space perhaps you might like to choose a sculpture? If you do have a large wall to work with, consider creating a gallery wall? Food photography is a great way to give your kitchen a modern restaurant feel. You might prefer modern abstract paintings? Whatever art you choose, you’ll want to spend some time thinking about your kitchen color schemes.

5. Revamp your lighting

If you want to improve your kitchen space you might consider revamping your lighting. Modern chandeliers look great in a kitchen, and these come in many different styles. When you’re choosing your lighting and appliances, it’s best to keep things as eco-friendly as possible. There are lots of eco-friendly interior design ideas that you can try.

Using these simple steps it’s easy to design a beautiful and modern kitchen. Before you make a start on choosing your decor you may want to sketch out a rough plan. Planning your interior design choices can help you to get organized, and ensure that you create a consistent style.
