Modern Kitchen Designs

Gallery of Pictures and Ideas

Modern kitchen designs feature flat surfaces, geometric forms, and minimal ornamentation. While wood veneer and stone are occasionally used, materials in modern kitchens are more often man-made, including plastic, metal, concrete, and glass.

Modern kitchen cabinets often feature flat slab doors. By avoiding excessive details, modern cabinetry gives the room a clean and spacious look. Crown molding, wood carvings, and raised panel door styles are avoided, but curved and angled elements are quite common. Modern cabinets are usually faced with plastic laminate or wood veneer, with the wood grain often oriented horizontally to give the cabinetry a sense of motion and width.

Special Elements: Modern kitchen islands often feature up-to-date accessories to help you organize your spices, dishes, and cooking ware. Natural light from windows or skylights combined with modern kitchen lighting can add both style and beauty to your contemporary kitchen.

Modern vs. Contemporary: Modern and Contemporary designs are often spoken of interchangeably, although they are purportedly different styles. Modernism began around World War I, and emphasized sturdy but low-cost designs, whereas Contemporary designs arose in later decades and often featured recycled materials. Both styles are intentionally non-traditional.
