Top 6 Things to consider when designing a modular kitchen

Ideas for a Modular Kitchen Makeover.

 Do you want to renovate your kitchen? It can be tough to imagine new materials in your future kitchen. The experts at Décor and Design, are here to make the design process more detailed and simple.

To start, we recommend familiarizing yourself with modern kitchen materials, high quality products, and design styles. To better find your own unique kitchen style, make a wish list of your favorite accessories.

  •  Identify color palette for your modular kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where your family gets together to cook, entertain guests, and, more recently, assist your children with their homework. There’s no reason it shouldn’t stand out in such a busy, functional environment. One of the most effective ways to improve your environment is to choose the right colour palette.

Décor and Design Suggest you keep your kitchen makeover palette simple. The first step is to select three neutrals that go together. Choose one prominent colour and two complementary accent colours from your wish list for your kitchen. Go with neutrals for a kitchen that will stand the test of time.

  • Choose a countertop for your modular kitchen

After that, choose a countertop material that will work for both your home and your own style. The material becomes the base of your design when you choose the countertop first. If you want light quartz with traditional mid-tone grey woodwork, such as choosing a natural wood carpet that “picks up the shades” from your favorite samples will make your final decision easier.

Most countertop surfaces come in a variety of flecked, stone, or marble-like designs, materials and finishes depending on whether you’re looking for luxury, moderate, or affordable options. Keep samples available to make sure that your cabinetry and flooring, as well as your backsplash and accessories, are all in tune.

  • Spend on new window treatments.

Your kitchen’s window treatments can make it appear old, uninteresting, imbalanced, and more. That’s why updating window coverings is one of our favorite kitchen renovation projects. Furthermore, they offer the finishing touches to the look you’re looking for in your modular kitchen.

We also like that you can change out your window treatments for the holidays, the season, or just because you want to, completely changing the mood in your kitchen.

  • Flooring for modular kitchen

When it comes to statement pieces, don’t neglect the importance of changing the flooring in your modular kitchen. Wood floors are timeless, warm, and inviting, whereas checkered black and white floors give your kitchen a modern or vintage feel depending on the kitchen design you choose.

Herringbone patterns are fashionable right now, whether in ceramic or wood, and they’re a great way to add a subtle but lovely design and a welcome sense of texture to even the most common kitchen flooring, quickly transforming it into a focus point.

  • Update your Backsplash

The backsplash is the unsung hero of the kitchen. The part of the wall behind your stove and countertops that bears the brunt of your cooking, including sauce splashes, the wall area behind your cooker and counters, receives a daily beating. 

Cleaning a backsplash, on the other hand, is usually straightforward. However, like anything else, it can tarnish and wear out over time. It can start to look a little worn out after a while. 

Updating your backsplash is a quick and low-cost way to transform your kitchen and make a big difference. Changing things around could be a good idea, whether to refresh a design or complement a new color scheme.

If you don’t already have one, you should think about acquiring one. This is a terrific way to make your kitchen a show-stopper. It is not required to use expensive tiles. Select a water-resistant paint. It doesn’t have to be prohibitively expensive.

What about rental homes, though? There’s still hope! The most common shaped modular kitchen color options in rental properties are white or cream or any neutral tone. This can become dull and tiring with time. 

Tile decal decals are one approach to freshen up the overall look. These can be worn both ways. Few landlords would object to you putting a permanent backsplash because it improves the property. Just double your landlord first.

  • Complete the look of your modular kitchen with decorations and accents.

The next stage in arranging your kitchen design is to add personal touches with accessories and decorations.

Consider how kitchen hardware can fit a specific style or theme, such as farmhouse, traditional, or contemporary. Pulls and knobs can draw attention to counters and reflect light. Metallic coatings may provide a pop of color to a room or highlight countertops with specks of gold or silver.
