Define Your Modern Style with Contemporary Cabinets

Posted on: March 14, 2011


Installing new kitchen cabinets is one of the easiest ways to redo your kitchen without overhauling the entire thing! If you want to update your traditional kitchen to a sleeker, modern look without having to completely remodel, consider adding contemporary kitchen cabinets. Contemporary kitchen cabinets come in a variety of styles and colors and can be customized to fit your existing kitchen.

Styles of Contemporary Cabinetry

Contemporary cabinetry should reflect the style of the kitchen – and contemporary kitchens are simple, unique and endlessly stylish. The sharp lines and edges of flat-panel contemporary cabinets create a sleek look that reflects modern kitchens.

Straight lines and square shapes are prominent in contemporary kitchen cabinets. Square cabinets, rather than the typical longer rectangular cabinets, effortlessly create a sophisticated, contemporary look. Sleek and simple are the essence of modern kitchens, and nothing can help display this more than your cabinets!

Colors of Contemporary Cabinetry

Contemporary kitchen designs are not one-fits-all and should be customized to fit your tastes and individual needs, but there is one thing nearly all contemporary kitchens have in common: contemporary cabinetry that relies on rich, brilliant colors! Some people choose dark wooden cabinets, but cabinets a bit more unique with bright colors are quickly gaining popularity. Black is popular for contemporary cabinetry, but don’t hesitate to go for those cherry red cabinets that catch the eye! Vibrant colors such as orange, yellow, red, and green create a refined contemporary look and are terrific choices for modern cabinets.

Material of Contemporary Cabinetry

Do you like aspects of contemporary kitchens but also want to preserve some more traditional kitchen features? Kitchen cabinets can help you strike that balance. For example, wood cabinets, while usually found in traditional kitchens, work quite well in a modern kitchen. Darker stained wood cabinets provide an urbane, modern appearance while retaining that touch of traditional beauty.

Glass cabinets are often found in contemporary kitchens. Try frost glass tinted cabinets or just partial-faced glass. And the great thing about using glass for your modern kitchen cabinets is that they won’t easily scratch!

Contemporary cabinets are significant when it comes to designing your modern kitchen.  The cabinets should complement the simplistic and unique style of the kitchen, and many different styles, colors, and materials achieve this. Just keep in mind that contemporary cabinets shouldn’t be ornate and detailed the way they often are in traditional kitchens.
