Now a days kitchen design is all about timber veneers, colors, contrast, metallics, contrast and the industrial look.
Modern kitchen design is sometimes broadly categorized as any style that’s less traditional and more contemporary—but in fact, all modern design has specific roots in terms of its time period, style and inspirations.
Whereas traditional kitchen styles often focus more of their design on natural materials for cabinets, countertops, floors and furniture, modern kitchen designs depart from this aesthetic fairly frequently, often featuring man-made materials like laminate, ceramics and molded plastics. That’s not to say that modern kitchens can’t, shouldn’t or don’t feature man-made materials—they almost always do, and often to great effect. Granite countertops, sleek hardwood floors and expertly designed wooden furniture featuring the signature curves and angles of modern design can often be found in modern kitchens.
Finally, furniture choices can contribute greatly to any modern kitchen design. Tables, stools, chairs and benches are available in an array of angular and flowing designs. Materials like wood, plastic and metal are employed in a modern or industrial style, often featuring bold and bright colors that can add great visual interest to any elegant and efficient modern kitchen design.
