Modern kitchens are the most common across the country! A modern kitchen can breathe contemporary life into your home and has become the leading look in more than a quarter of all US states, including prominence across Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Illinois.
Combining sleek storage, broad countertops, and elegant appliances, a contemporary kitchen is built upon minimalist features that offer timeless charm. For instance, integrated appliances and handleless cabinetry can help to declutter your design. Another simple way to modernize your space is taking your use of color into consideration; block shades work well, while whites and light greys help to give your kitchen a sense of welcoming homeliness.
Take industrial inspiration when styling your home! The industrial look has become a popular style across the US and is the most sought-after finish in 11 different states, including Texas, Colorado, and Virginia. The style is underpinned by long-lasting and durable design, practical features, and stylish use of metallic elements. In essence, an industrial kitchen is fashioned to operate with uncomplicated ease.
The great thing about an industrial kitchen is that it can work alongside most other styles, from contemporary chic to country farmhouse and traditional; the core design is centered around spacious preparation surfaces, practical storage, and ease-of-movement between cooktop, countertops, and appliances.
What goes into styling a rustic-look space? Rustic kitchen features offer warmth and cozy character, so it’s no surprise the style has become so popular across the US; it’s the favored look in six separate states, including New Hampshire, Montana, and Maine.
