Elements of Modern Kitchens
The modern kitchen design can be thought of as sleek, simple, and clean. CABINETS in a modern-styled kitchen are frameless which meaning the cabinet door must overlay the cabinet box. The cabinetry can also be used to integrate the kitchen’s hardware such as microwaves, ovens, and dishwashers.
Kitchens in modern-styled homes must lack ornamentation, meaning the cabinets should not show grain or textured detail. Unlike contemporary kitchens, modern-styled cabinetry are simple and sleek. This idea of simplicity also applies to the countertops and backsplash in a kitchen.
The countertops, walls, and BACKSPLASHES may include industrial features, such as concrete, or natural elements in a horizontal line. An easy way to identify a modern kitchen is by following the consistent horizontal lines or similar accents in the kitchen.
The lighting, tables, chairs, and bar stools must have clean lines and lack ornamentation while staying consistent with the kitchen’s color scheme. The overall goal of this type of house is to create clean lines that continue throughout the home and landscaping.
