Are you inspired to remodel your kitchen this year? There are so many designs and layouts, especially for modern and contemporary kitchens. From granite countertops to marble islands, the options for kitchen designs are endless. For this week’s post, we decided to put together a list of the top five modern kitchen designs that are sleek and stylish for any kitchen.

Timeless Dark Wood

Dark wood cabinets with an eye-catching beige backsplash can accent your kitchen for a traditional, yet modern twist. Adding stainless steel appliances and granite countertops are a must! We also suggest a dark wooden floor to match with color of the cabinets for a uniform and flawless kitchen layout.

Minimalist Marble

Consider a light colored marble backsplash for your kitchen space. By keeping things open and bright, your marble can be the center of attention. If you have an island, try white marble with stainless steel accent lights that hang for a modern touch. To maintain that minimalist vibe in your kitchen, install white cabinets with metal handles so that your marble can have everyone’s focus.

Scandinavian Farmhouse

A large, minimalistic L-shaped island can be a great match to light wood and brown flooring.  Add an ovular wooden sink to your island to keep up with the farmhouse look. Opt for recessed-panel cabinets, stainless steel countertops, and stainless steel appliances that are perfect modern accents to any kitchen. If you need ideas for cabinet colors, we suggest gray cabinets with a gray backsplash to accent the light wood floor.

Functionality & Style


Functionality in your kitchen is key when you use it all the time. For this look, we recommend light wood and brown flooring, a single-bowl sink and flat-panel cabinets that are also light wood to keep colors consistent throughout the kitchen. A white ceramic backsplash with stainless steel appliances can also be a perfect complement to this functional style and look. Fora practical layout, install slide-out cabinets to maximize storage space in your kitchen.

Modern New York Concrete

Give your kitchen an open space with a large modern single-wall concrete floor, a double-bowl sink, and dark gray cabinets. For your countertops, we suggest installing solid surface countertops with brown backsplash and stainless steel appliances to maintain a modern vibe throughout the entire kitchen. To brighten up your space, stainless steel lighting would be a great choice to complement the dark gray tones.
