Characteristics of Modern Kitchen Designs

Modern and contemporary kitchens are two distinct styles—modern kitchens feature design from the modernist movement, and contemporary kitchens are designed using whatever styles are currently popular. Currently, contemporary kitchens have modern elements that feature minimal clutter, clean lines, and streamlined surfaces. It brings in ideas and inspiration from the modernist movement, but today’s modern kitchens can include a few traditional aspects to make the space more livable. Additional characteristics of modern design include:

  1. A monochromatic color scheme: Simple color schemes that only feature one or two colors is a trademark of the modern design movement. Bright pops of red, yellow, and blue are trending in modern kitchen design, but some modern kitchens use a darker wood for cabinets and white everywhere else.
  2. Clean and simple lines: You won’t find any detailed curves in modern kitchen design. Most contemporary kitchens you’ll find do incorporate a bit of old-word comfort, but if you’re looking for a strictly modern design, you should avoid any intricate details and go for simple shapes.
  3. Stainless steel appliances: Most modern and contemporary kitchens feature stainless steel—sometimes white—appliances.
  4. Sleek cabinets and drawer pulls: Modern and contemporary kitchens feature flat-faced cabinets that seem to flush seamlessly with the walls. Overlay slab panel door and drawer fronts are popular, and fussy, hyper-detailed pulls are a “don’t.” Stick with simple and sleek.
