Modern and contemporary kitchen motifs are hot right now. Our clients are gravitating toward more open, clutter-free, minimalist spaces with clean lines. The clean look is devoid of curves and is more linear in its look and feel.
Today’s Contemporary Kitchen
Modern contemporary kitchens celebrate natural materials, whether they are stone, quartz or solid wood cabinetry. Contemporary motifs often feature frameless cabinets that offer smooth surfaces. The tile we specify for a contemporary kitchen is also straightforward with sharp, clean edges.
This same approach is taken when we suggest countertops for a contemporary kitchen. Quartz is extremely popular because of its clean look.
A well-designed kitchen is an organized kitchen. We often propose special storage compartments in drawers and cabinets, which allows countertops to remain clutter free.
It’s easy to add that wow factor to a contemporary kitchen by contrasting cabinet colors and materials with countertops and backsplashes as well floor and wall coverings. Imagine gray wall cabinets with white base cabinets.
In contemporary kitchens, opposites attract. That’s why we don’t subscribe to limiting color palettes for our clients who want a contemporary look. What’s more important, is how the color selected will contrast and complement with other materials in the kitchen.
In keeping with the contemporary design, lighting fixtures tend to be minimalist and offer clean, uncluttered lines.
Less is typically more in a contemporary kitchen design. Open floor plans, expansive floor and countertop space and abundant natural light are hallmarks of contemporary kitchen design.
For faucets, cabinet and door hardware and other fixtures, we recommend polished chrome finishes. Chrome is timeless and easy to clean.
