Contemporary kitchens


Picture from kitchens.com

Contemporary kitchens tend to be described as modern, minimalist and geometric. The characteristics include horizontal lines, asymmetry and a lack of molding and other ornamentation. Materials often are man-made rather than natural: stainless steel, laminate, glass, concrete, chrome and lacquer. Contemporary style is taking a softer turn, even I the kitchen, a place where hard edges, cool reflection surfaces and cutting-edge technology abound. When selecting cabinets for your contemporary kitchen, pair a frameless door with wood finish. Laminate cabinetry is still compatible with this style.

Expect to see to for Contemporary Kitchens:

  • Cabinet material: stainless steel, white or bold-colored laminate, or subtly grained woods such as birch, ash or maple;
  • Frameless cabinets with oversized hardware;
  • Cabinet door style: slab or horizontal lift-up;
  • Stainless steel and other metallic accents;
  • Frosted glass inserts;
  • Curved cabinets and counters.

Country Kitchens

“Country” implies a deeper connection to the outdoors and the simple life than other styles and uses an abundance of natural element. Country kitchens are cheery and welcoming, with light and/or bright colors, painted and glazed cabinets, woven baskets, floral motifs, and decorative shelving and molding. Cabinet door styles are typically framed, sometimes with raised panel.


Expect to see for Country Kitchens:

  1. Floral, checked, striped, gingham and plaid patterns;
  2. Painted, glazed and distressed cabinet finishes;
  3. Window and wall treatments in fabrics such as chintz and calico;
  4. Beadboard wainscoting and paneling;
  5. Handmade, hand-forged, homespun look;
  6. Chicken wire or metal cabinet inserts;
  7. Antiques and flea-market finds.
