Modern Cabinets

Posted on: August 14, 2013

Modern Cabinetry

Many homes in the Washington, DC area are older and outdated. Fortunately, there are easy ways to modernize your home’s interior, especially the kitchen and bathroom—using cabinetry!

The right cabinets can create a contemporary look for your space, whether you want to update your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room. And if you live in Maryland, Washington, DC, or Northern Virginia, Jack Rosen Custom Kitchens offers the cabinetry you need.

Modern Style Cabinetry Traits

Modern cabinets have a few distinguishing characteristics. They:

  • Are minimalist, not ornate (no raised panels, etc.)
  • Feature strong lines and angles
  • Typically have simple, thin hardware
  • Often have pulls rather than round knobs
  • Are usually painted (not plain wood) or have a veneer

Modern cabinets also typically provide contrast to the rest of the space. For instance, if your kitchen is neutral, with white or light colored flooring, walls, and countertops, there might be dark cabinets or solid colored (red, yellow, blue, etc.) cabinetry.

Expert Tips

Not interested in bright colored cabinets? There are other ways to add color to your kitchen and modernize it with more neutral cabinetry. Have you heard of engineered wood cabinets? They can provide a modern look for your kitchen, with a European style touch.

Integrated appliances and seamless kitchen design has become extremely popular and many cabinets nowadays also come with convenient features like appliance garages as well as built-in spice racks and other storage solutions (check out the picture below).
