Modern Open Eat-In Kitchen with Colorful Countertops
We love this modern open eat-in kitchen with its colorful countertops and on-trend color scheme. This kitchen design is also packed with lots of great kitchen ideas. Here are a few of our favorites to try in your own kitchen:
Extend your Kitchen Island
Keep things simple and open with a functional center kitchen island and lots of below-counter storage. Deep kitchen drawers provide plenty of easy-access storage and they keep clutter out-of-site. Take advantage of both sides of a kitchen island for additional drawers and storage.
You can add additional seating to an eat-in kitchen by extending your island countertop 14-18” (40cm) and adding a few counter height stools. Not only will you add additional eating and entertaining space, but you’ll extend your prep area. This is a great way to get family members and guests involved in making a meal.
Add some color
One of our favorite kitchen ideas is to give white kitchen cabinets a splash of color with colorful solid surface countertops. Look for popular solid surface brands such as Corian, Avonite, and Silestone. You’ll find many great colors to choose from or have a custom color made by submitting a PMS (Pantone) color or color swatch. We used Peach Echo (PANTONE 16-1548), a warm peachy orange color, in this kitchen design to create a crisp, modern and on-trend color scheme.
Focus your Lighting
Don’t forget about the lighting. In kitchens, lighting is very important. Illuminate your open eat-in kitchen with pendant lights. Place a row over an open countertop or kitchen island to provide task lighting. Add the same style light in a larger size over your dining table to complete the modern look.
