How to Design a Contemporary Kitchen

Here are a few key characteristics that are often found in a stylish, contemporary kitchen.   

Matte Finishes

The smooth, flat texture absorbs light and is better at hiding smudges than other common alternatives. 

Monochromatic Color Scheme

For a sophisticated ambiance, all-black or all-white are both popular.

Sleek Lighting

Lights add a stunning design element while properly illuminating your kitchen. 

Concealed Appliances

Customizing the panels on your refrigerator and dishwasher to match the cabinetry lends a modern and integrated look. 

Striking Countertops

Marble, wood or stainless steel countertops are popular statement pieces.  

Clean Lines

Sharp vertical and horizontal angles will contribute to an aesthetic that’s effortlessly minimalist.
