Featured Post

The kitchen is the hub of the family home, it is the place where you will cook together and eat together in many cases

Your kitchen needs to be somewhere that your family can relax together and so the design must suit your tastes.

Some people like traditional kitchens while others prefer a more modern design.

In 2020, we believe that a modern design is the best option.

In this guide, I have some tips to help you modernise your kitchen. Read on to hear more about this.

Start With The Flooring

You might think that the first step to modernising your kitchen is working on the cabinets but this is not the case at all.

You should first focus on the floor as this is the base of the room.

In a modern kitchen, we would suggest that you opt for some nice laminates to really tie the design together.

To do this, you should find a reliable carpet and flooring company that supplies and fits laminate flooring.

Modern Cabinets

If you want to make your kitchen appear more modern, you are going to need to spend some time looking at the cabinets.

If you have wooden cabinets that are looking a bit dated, this isn’t going to achieve your desired look.

It might be expensive to totally replace your cabinets but it will be worth it in the end.

For a truly modern look, I suggest that you go for some silver or chrome cabinets.

Don’t forget about the handles as these are very important.

Swap Out The Appliances

If you are hoping to save some money when modernising your kitchen, you probably don’t want to hear the next tip.

When we buy appliances, we expect them to last us for many years but if you have some older looking appliances, you are going to need to swap them out.

Some of the appliances that are usually on show include the fridge, the freezer, the washing machine and the toaster.

These need to look modern or else they will look out of place in your new kitchen. Have a look online and see if you can get some chrome appliances that match your new cabinets. 

Hit The Lights

Another thing that you are going to want to consider when you are modernising your kitchen is the lighting that you have.

If you have old looking light fixtures then these aren’t going to help you achieve your desired aesthetic. The best lighting solution for those who want to achieve a modern design is spotlights.

The great thing about spotlights is that they can draw attention to different parts of your kitchen and can look sleek at the same time. You won’t have anything hanging from the ceiling and can enjoy a spacious, modern kitchen.

Keep It Free From Clutter

Finally, if you want to modernise your kitchen, you should try to keep it free from clutter.

Traditional kitchens tend to have a lot of things lying around but in a modern kitchen, you’ll find a clean and clutter-free environment.

Some people find this hard to achieve when they have many appliances but they don’t all need to be sitting on the kitchen counter.

Organise your appliances by season and put things away that you won’t use in the summer.

You can also hang any utensils on the wall and organise your cupboards. This all works together to create a modern-looking kitchen.

Get Started

If you want to transform your kitchen this year, make sure to take on board all of the tips that I’ve shared in this article.

You’ll want to start with the flooring and then work on the cabinets and any appliances that you want to have in there. Your kitchen is the place that you will want to spend time with your family so make sure that it suits your tastes.

Once you get started, you’ll love how modern your kitchen looks. Don’t forget to show it off to your friends and family once you are finished!
