Top 5 Contemporary Kitchen Interior Design Ideas | Tips and Trends for Home Decor

If you’re designing or renovating a kitchen
and you’re looking for contemporary ideas and trends from finishes to fixtures,
then this video is perfect for you! Hi guys welcome back to D.Signers! I’m Zahira Cury architect and interior designer
founder of d.signers. I was getting inspired at work today with
my documents and recordings that I took of kitchen designs at the interior design fairs
this year and I just realized that I didn’t share those tips and trends about contemporary
kitchen, so in this video I will share with you some ideas and the latest favorites for
a contemporary kitchen design that I think are very unique and elegant. Remember guys if you have any questions after
watching this video let me know in a comment below, and for those who are new here, don’t
forget to subscribe to join our beautiful design community, I want to remind you all
to turn on the notifications bell so you don’t miss out on the upcoming videos. Stay with me because I will share with you
some combinations of materials and textures that can inspire you to design your contemporary
kitchen specially if your kitchen has an open space concept, so let’s get started. If you’ve been following me for a while I’m
sure you have heard me saying that the contemporary design is clean and minimalist. To achieve this effect, contemporary kitchen
cabinets generally have minimal ornamentation and simple but stylish hardware
and no other decorative accents. In terms of colors, contemporary kitchen cabinets
may often have a monochromatic color scheme. Blacks, white and grays are popular in this
style, These colors give the clean appearance which characterize the contemporary style. This clean appearance and minimal details
are perfect to be used when the kitchen shares the space with other areas like your living
or dining room. this way the simplicity of the cabinetry can
match better with all the contemporary decor and furniture that conform the space. It’s important to have multiple storage
spaces to maintain the kitchen clean, it’s incredible the many choices that are available
in the market! An also, It’s true that open shelving is
a favorite element at the time of designing a contemporary kitchen, but now they are specially
for displaying the personality of the homeowner, you can include beautiful and stylish pieces
of your dining room, your kitchen books or other accessories that you usually use in
your kitchen but at the same time can be used as decorative pieces. Islands are a crucial element when it comes
to contemporary kitchens. Islands tend to become the gathering spot
in the kitchen and, especially if there is seating, it can also be a spot where kids
can do their homework while their parents are cooking. it can help keep the family engaged and connected
so its very important to make your island work properly for your needs! Look around and figure out exactly what your
kitchen needs! Maybe you need additional storage space, or
a place to have breakfast, or share with your guests while you’re cooking dinner, just
make Your kitchen island complement and complete your kitchen, maintaining functionality and
visual harmony with your entire home. The idea of an open concept kitchen is very
common in modern and contemporary homes so we are seeing a tendency of kitchen islands
extending into living room spaces in homes This ensures the kitchen island can be multi-functional
and it will be a part of the whole composition of the space, so we need to accessories it
as well. The use of stool and pendant lamps are a must
have to define the area and to add character to the open space. If your kitchen shares the space with the
dining or living room, Remember to select pieces that speak to one another across the
room. Maybe the color of your stool speak to the
color of a pillow or wall art in your living room, this will create a visual flow and will
provide a cohesive atmosphere. If you have an open space concept you can
see my video about that right here! The kitchen fixtures aren’t only a functional
element any more, now they are artistic pieces and crucial elements to define your kitchen
style. this kind of unique accessories add character
to the space and are perfect to complement a contemporary color palette in a very very chic
way. Let’s try some combinations: If you have
a white kitchen with a clean and contemporary appearance, try to incorporate black matte
fixtures to make a high contrast and accentuate those elements. if you have wooden finishes with concrete
tiles and black matte textured combinations, you can add golden matte fixtures and details
to make it pop. So be creative and don’t forget to add a
bold fixture to complete your contemporary home design. When embarking on a contemporary kitchen design,
consider the use of textured materials in combination with smooth and polished finishes. Textures are applied to cabinet doors, worktops,
walls and flooring. By introducing textural finishes the sensory
experience, both visual and tactile is enhanced in a contemporary kitchen. Don’t be afraid to mix and match textures,
the combination of textures in contemporary kitchens are bold and dramatic, for example:
wooden floor tiles with a marble countertop. Concrete, matte cabinets, wood and gold together! Include in your kitchen lots of materials
with textures because they are tactile elements that will give any kitchen a bit of warmth
and history. Matte finishes are a popular favorite for
using in all the areas of a contemporary home and even more in bathrooms and kitchens, this
sleek finish is used in tiles, fixtures, accessories, countertop or backsplash. The matte finish is smooth to the touch and
creates a soft feel for a subtle and natural appearance. Since high-gloss finishes are the quickest
to show stains or scratches, matte finishes became popular because it’s not necessary
to clean their cabinet surfaces as often. For larger kitchens or open floor plans, matte
finishes are ideal because they interact better with the the decor elements and furniture
of a contemporary home. remember that in an open space concept the
different areas should speak to one another to create a cohesive space Also matte finishes are perfect to create
a natural or rustic look and are perfect for combining with wooden textures. this combination is very used in contemporary
homes because it provides a warm sensation needed in any home. Matte finishes produce a stunning, sleek look
that adds a level of sophistication, authenticity and modernity to the space. Guys, Remember if you have any questions let
