Kitchen furniture: modern kitchen or classic kitchen?

How to furnish a kitchen?  Basically you can choose between two types of kitchen: modern kitchen or classic kitchen.  A modern kitchen is a kitchen with essential and minimalist lines that is characterized by the use of materials and mainly steel, such as steel hobs or built-in appliances. Classic kitchens, on the other hand, are rooms that are furnished in a slightly more elaborate way with the presence of cabinets or cupboards in which chinaware is displayed and the choice of wood, stone or marble surfaces for the hobs and kitchen tops
