Every homemaker knows that the kitchen is the most important part of the house. However, as integral as it is to home life, a lot of homeowners say that a messy kitchen can ruin a well-decorated space. The solution? A modern and minimal cooking corner. It's a great way to make your space look uncluttered and it won't take away from the beauty of your main living area. Learn how to do a lot with a little with these tips:  

If you don't like the look of having appliances placed side by side, consider alternating each gadget with an art or decor piece. Remember to pick out pieces that are easy-to-clean so it won't be a hassle to tidy up in case of a food spill or cooking mishap. 

For more spacious kitchens, bigger art pieces can work, too. Eye-catching works of art distract the eye from the clutter in the kitchen and a stunning piece can give your space a luxe and well-styled look. 

This hispter-style scullery is far from what a typical cooking area looks like—in fact, it resembles an open kitchen that you'll find in most restaurants these days. The secret? Transferring all dry goods and produce into identical bottles to avoid clutter from unique packaging.

If you have enough easy-access storage, you can take it a step further and clear your counters of all appliances. Leave out a few of your essentials and arrange them like a vignette to complete the aesthetic. 

For those who are forced to leave a lot of things on the counter, consider investing in pieces that double as decor to keep the space looking high-end and mess-free.
