How About A Contemporary Kitchen Design?

Home Improvement
The kitchen is one of the most frequently remodeled rooms in any house. There are so many different and wonderful styles to choose from that is can sometimes be confusing as to where to start. While there are lots of good choices, a contemporary kitchen design may serve you best because of its functionality and the timeless use of geometric forms that can be incorporated into the design.

What is Contemporary Kitchen Design?

Contemporary design is characterized by simple lines and geometric themes. It is often referred to as minimalist style because of the lack of design flourishes and unnecessary embellishments are left out. You will also often find asymmetrical balance in contemporary or modern design.

Also common in contemporary design is the use of man-made materials like plastic, linoleum, laminates, acrylic, concrete, chrome, and glass. But natural materials can certainly be incorporated to complement the man-made elements and to soften the industrial feel of contemporary kitchens. You can often find things like wood, stone, and granite as accents and complements.

What are the Essential Elements?

In terms of specifics, in a modern kitchen design you might find things like plain, frameless cabinets with very simplistic hardware. Other typical features include things like frosted glass cabinet doors or panels, plenty of metal components, especially stainless steel appliances or accents of copper or chrome.

And while geometric angles and lines are the standard in contemporary kitchen design you can still find nice curves built into the cabinetry or counter tops to provide balance to lots of straight lines. Lighting in a modern kitchen is very important as well and will typically be very plentiful.

Adjustable track lighting is quite popular in such kitchens. When it comes to colors in a contemporary kitchen, the surfaces, and particularly the counter tops are usually either a clean white or they add dramatic flair by being toned in a bright, bold color. Pastels, rustic, or Tuscan colors are not typically found anywhere in the modern kitchen. If wood is used in the cabinets, delicate grain varieties like birch, ash, or maple are the most common.

How Can I Implement Contemporary Design in My Existing Kitchen?

Since so much of contemporary kitchen design is about functionality and accessibility, you can start putting in things like well-planned storage cabinets with sliding drawers, lazy susans, or pullout shelves. Putting lighting underneath cabinets can also aid in food preparation as well as adding beautiful aesthetic value.

How Can I incorporate Green Elements into Contemporary Design?

It is definitely possible to use eco-friendly materials while creating a contemporary kitchen design. For example, you could put in energy-efficient appliances to save on costs as well as energy. You can also choose flooring material of bamboo wood or sustainable hardwood varieties. And of course, do not forget to design a great system for managing your recycling.

Designing a contemporary kitchen can provide you with a fresh, clean and simple look that can remain fashionable for years to come while providing great functional benefits to all who use the space.
