Contemporary Home – Kitchen Design
Contemporary kitchens combine minimalist cabinetry, neutral color palettes and metallic accents for a subtle elegance that will never go out of style. The key is to blend aspects of modern design with other styles for a look that’s current and sleek, but not sterile. Adding a pop of color, large windows and natural elements ensures that a contemporary kitchen design will feel warm and welcoming.
Here are a few design elements to keep in mind when designing your contemporary kitchen:
- Cabinet style – flat panel cabinet doors create clean lines
- Horizontal lines – used in the layout of the cabinets & counters, flooring and backsplash tile give a sense of calm to the space
- Geometric forms – create accents by selecting light fixtures, furniture or wall décor with geometric shapes.
- Stainless steel appliances & accents– the look of commercial appliances in the kitchen lends itself to a more modern/industrial look. Stylish arched or angled vent-hoods provide geometric accents.
- Simple, sleek hardware – clean lines and simply designed hardware dress up the cabinets without overpowering the overall look. Finishes vary from brushed nickel to brass.
- Natural elements – many of today’s contemporary kitchens combine elements found in nature (natural stone countertops, warm wood tones, glass pendant lighting), connecting the space to the setting and adding texture and contrast.
- Pops of color – counter stools, colorful glass light fixture, small kitchen appliances
- Large windows – flood the space with natural light and bring the outside in
