Simplicity marks the beauty of modern kitchens. They usually use pastel colors like white, grey and blue to keep the pristine appearances intact.

3. Small sized kitchen

The obvious problem with small apartments is that there is no space for you to get an elaborate kitchen designed for yourself. However, you can utilize the space you have, by intelligently using every inch you have.

For a small kitchen, you can include cabinets, a stove, ventilator, and a sink. If you are left with space after these installations, you can also add a fridge or a microwave in the kitchen. Use bright colors on the walls to create the illusion of a bigger space.

4. Kitchen with an Island

The idea of a kitchen with an island is unique and fun. Basically, this island is a section or cabinet that is centrally located in your kitchen. You may or may not use this furniture for active cooking – instead, you can use it to store utensils.

This is probably the most common type of kitchen you will find in an apartment. The straight kitchen can be fitted into any space with ease. A straight kitchen lines up against the wall, alignment being its attractive feature here.
