Contemporary style has more subtlety in their design than classical. In contemporary , Shaker is the main door style, and the finish and material of the doors can play an important factor in the design. Doors in contemporary styles can be made of different woods such as Walnut, Maple, Cherry, and oak.
The definition of contemporary is “belonging to or occurring in the present” so a Contemporary Style Kitchen Design means a kitchen that is styled for the present time. So, what is the kitchen style at the present time? That is a constantly evolving answer because what was popular yesterday may not be a good idea today. That means that you either need to change your kitchen style constantly or choose a design that is always in style.
Contemporary Kitchen Design Ideas
Create a Timeless Contemporary Kitchen Design
You may think that is hard to do, but at Teka Kitchen Gallery Inc. in Concord we can help you with that. Shaker style doors in all different types of wood with stainless steel appliances and white countertops are usually a part of the design. Alternatively, you can choose black glossy cabinets with a granite countertop and island with barstools to match. Brushed silver or chrome drawer pulls and knobs, white marble or slate tile floor and a colorful backsplash also go great in a contemporary kitchen.
Contemporary kitchen cabinets can be any color or material, but one of the most popular and timeless styles is shaker style cabinets made in any type of wood, such as oak, maple, cherry, walnut, pine, etc. Handles, drawer pulls, and knobs of brushed silver or chrome match well with anything so they are good choices for contemporary style kitchens. We have many styles and materials to choose from.
Floors and Walls
The floor of your kitchen has to be attractive and functional as well as timeless. Any type of tile, marble, stone, or even wood are all great choices for a contemporary kitchen design. The walls should coordinate well with the flooring in a contrasting color, such as white floors with black walls or vice versa. The colors black and white as well as natural materials such as wood, stone, marble, and granite are all timeless choices that will work with a contemporary style kitchen for years to come.
Countertops and Backsplash
Countertops in marble, granite, limestone, and slate are all excellent choices for a contemporary style kitchen design because these can stand the test of time and the trends as well. A backsplash that coordinates well with the countertops to blend in and give a smooth and sleek look is always a great choice for a contemporary style kitchen design.
One of the most important things in a kitchen is the lighting. You need to have it everywhere; decorative halogen lights over the sink, a single decorative hanging lamp over the island, recessed lighting over the countertops with individual lights for food preparation. In addition, above your kitchen table you should have lighting that is the centerpiece of the whole room.
The Finishing Touches
Furniture and decorations are easy to replace if they go out of style so these choices should be all about you. Let your style show through and make your kitchen a place where you, your family, and friends will love to hang out.
