What Are the Characteristics of Contemporary & 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. They bring 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. Monochromatic color schemes: Simple color schemes that only feature one or two colors are 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, simple lines: You won’t find any detailed curves in modern kitchen design. Most contemporary kitchens you’ll find incorporate a bit of old-world comfort. However, 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 and 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, and hyperdetailed pulls are a “don’t.” Stick with simple and sleek.

If you’re interested in implementing a sleek contemporary or modern kitchen design in your MD, DC, or Northern VA home, contact Jack Rosen Custom Kitchens online or by calling our home remodeling team at 301-363-4064.

Modern Kitchen Design FAQs

What are some common trends in modern kitchen design?

Modern kitchen design trends include unique takes on the classic kitchen. Some modern trends that are popping up in kitchen updates include:

  • Stark contrasts – Black cabinetry with white countertops and light gray flooring is all the rage right now.
  • Curving lines – Circular and oval counters in place of rectangular add pleasing flow to the kitchen.
  • Open concept – Open concept kitchens flow seamlessly with the other living areas of the home to make it feel larger and let the cook be part of the action.

What are the most important features of a modern kitchen?

Modern kitchen design focuses on counter space, storage, and overall flow. Maximizing storage by adding drawers and cabinets to every possible area is key, and pantries are often part of a modern kitchen remodel. Kitchen islands can add counter space and additional storage as well. Open designs that provide obvious traffic patterns are growing in popularity.

What are the benefits of an eat-in kitchen?

Adding space to eat inside your kitchen can make it more functional and convenient for your family. An eat-in kitchen also means you can save the dining space for more formal events. Eat-in kitchens also provide a space for the family to hang out and spend time together, doing homework and projects in the same space where meals get prepared.

How is lighting a part of modern kitchen design?

Lighting the kitchen makes it more functional and also improves the overall look of the space. Modern light features can add a sense of artistic merit to the modern kitchen remodel. Sometimes, the light fixture is the primary focus of the design. Under-the-cabinet and recessed lighting can also help make it easier to use the kitchen for daily cooking tasks while seamlessly integrating the light into the design.
