The latest trend in kitchen decor is a “modern colorful” look. With more people looking for ways to simplify their lives, they are looking for easy ways to update the kitchen without spending a lot of money. Kitchen cabinets are often one of the last things remodeling experts are asked to do. Modern color schemes make it easy to change the look of your kitchen cabinet doors. Instead of dull black or dark red wood, you can replace those with beautiful, colorful custom cabinet knobs that have a funky style.

Be Very Stylistic

Color schemes for kitchens can be very stylistic and complex. With modern kitchen design choices, you can have fun and experiment with many different color schemes. You can use a monochromatic color scheme to keep the room clean and organized. If you want to add some color to your kitchen, use complimentary colors for your cabinets, countertops, flooring, appliances and accessories. For more ideas on color schemes, check out modern kitchen design magazines and online websites.

If you are on a tight budget but you still want modern kitchen design options, you can still update your kitchen with new cabinet hardware. One way to upgrade the appearance of your cupboards is to change the door knobs. These are available in many different hardware styles and finishes including brass, brushed nickel, polished chrome and many other options. Choose a knob in a unique color shade to really give your cabinets an individual flair. You can also add interesting lettering to your hardware.

 Modern Hardware Selections

There are modern hardware selections that feature intricate details like stainless steel knobs in bronze or black. They feature colored glass in chrome or satin chrome. Some cabinet hardware sets include a pull out trash can for cleaning up after cooking or baby food containers. You can add beautiful modern lighting to your kitchen cabinets with special light fixtures that are designed to compliment your modern lighting fixtures.

 Includes Many Types Of Tile, Backsplash And Flooring

Modern kitchen decor also includes many types of tile, backsplash and flooring. You can find many mosaic tiles that have been decorated in beautiful modern patterns or you can choose from a simple solitaire tile. Other options include marble, limestone and even granite tiles. These look beautiful as tiles on their own or you can use them as a backsplash in your kitchen.

If you want to add a splash of color to your walls, you can install bright tiles on the floor. Try using a bold pattern or create a geometric theme in your kitchen with tiles. If you need a touch of drama in your modern kitchen decor, try installing a large scale Murano glass vase as your centerpiece. The effect it will have is dramatic and very unique.

Bottom Line

When you are choosing modern kitchen decor, you don’t have to limit yourself to just white cabinets. You can use any color as long as you keep in mind how it will relate to the rest of the design and how it will work in your kitchen. Mix and match until you find the best combination that suits your needs and your personality. Also make sure to keep your budget in mind when you make changes to your kitchen decor so that you won’t end up having to do it all over again.
