Styles 101: Modern & Contemporary Kitchens

Contemporary kitchen design represents the sleek, clean, and the simplistic character of modern and contemporary architecture.

With minimalist cabinetry, neutral color palettes, and metallic accents, modern and contemporary kitchens have subtle elegance that never goes out of style. A pop of color on the furniture, in a bowl of fresh fruit, or in a vase of flowers ensures that contemporary kitchen designs still feel warm and welcoming. The big windows that let in the sun, an architectural light fixture, or a piece of bold artwork or decor add to its warmth and character.

The linear simplicity makes the contemporary kitchen appear basic in detail, when in fact, it can be exceedingly complex in function. Modern and contemporary kitchens are typically open and airy, contributing to the clean, modern style they represent. Straight lines with geometric curves form the asymmetrical yet balanced look that is contemporary design. This innovative and ever-changing style makes use of synthetic materials with mixtures of wood while creatively employing many other materials both traditional and modern. Contemporary kitchen designers employ wood, stone, and metal in unexpected and innovative ways. New and different materials supplement the design to create a bold, fresh feel.

Modern and contemporary kitchen designers love to experiment with various surface designs and lighting, making the environment serene and relaxing. Crisp, forward thinking and the “less is more” approach of modern and contemporary style, along with its emphasis on form equals function, challenges more traditional styles and pushes kitchen design to a whole new level.
