Brakur_Modern_KitchenWhile a modern kitchen can be contemporary it is not always. Contemporary kitchens reflect the current trends or designs. Modern kitchen styles came from the early to mid-20th Century at a time when people veered away from the traditional kitchen style before the Industrial Revolution.The modern kitchen style has been around longer than most people realize.

There are some key features that distinguish a modern kitchen style. Modern kitchens today reflect a simplistic design with little ornamentation or embellishments.

Characteristics of a Modern Kitchen       

  • Frameless cabinets with flat panel door style
  • Prominence placed on clean horizontal lines
  • Reflect natural beauty with little ornamentation – rely on the natural grain of wood
  • Simple hardware such as pulls
  • Absence of patterns
  • Usually neutral in color schemes and often draw from nature
  • Organized and consistent look -  accent pieces match
  • Utilize industrial elements such as concrete walls or floors
  • Use of metals such as stainless steel

When it comes to choosing your kitchen style, a lot of it has to do with who you are and your personality.  A modern kitchen is not for everyone but is a kitchen that many people like. People who tend to be more organized and like things to be clean and simple are more drawn to the modern kitchen style.
