By Sugan_CML

Modern kitchen design in 2014 in more exciting than it has ever been. More clever storage solutions add more function. Replacing the traditional cabinet with deep drawers will increase functionality. When designing a kitchen in 2014, the first key decision made is the design style that will be used for the space. And while a traditional or country style may be familiar to many homeowners, a modern kitchen design style lends itself to midcentury architecture and urban spaces. The minimalist and uncluttered style is also the perfect solution for smaller spaces.

Stainless steel appliances, dual dishwashers, wine storage and integrated coffee centers can be combined into appliance walls for maximized function when the budget allows. Refrigerator drawers and undercounted beverage centers and wine cooler offer less costly options that can easily be included in an island. The kitchen island also may also house a sink, room for informal dining, or a stove and overhead hood. There is now a system to expand a narrow island into a full dining space by sliding a second countertop layer over an existing base: a perfect multitasking solution for tight spaces. The minimalist modern kitchen design is warmed with texture and color for a restful, efficient, and potentially timeless space. Is a modern kitchen the right style for you? Take a minute to watch the video to decide.
