Contemporary Kitchens Styles
Contemporary Kitchens – A visiting friend recently asked me how I came up with a contemporary style for my kitchen. Until he asked, I never really considered my kitchen contemporary and I asked myself: What is a ‘contemporary’ kitchen? After some research on what elements make up a contemporary kitchen, I find I can break down the styles into three small styles. Each small style still contains the elements needed to consider contemporary kitchens, such as clean appearance, flow, and overall focus on function rather than shape. Sub-styles also each have their own unique features of how these elements are used and used through equations such as equipment, cabinets, counters and floors.
The first of these three styles can be considered minimalist. Although the minimalist concept is the biggest contributor to the overall contemporary kitchen style, there are various levels that can be taken by the subject. Taken to the extreme minimalist kitchen left with space formed with a form of empty needs. The counters are clean, the cabinets are sharp and the equipment is sharp and the colors are dark, gray, and white, very impressive without the decoration and the fact that this area is for genuine use.
There are no additions, no sparkles, no frills, only the steel, glass and tiles needed to get a job. The second sub-style of contemporary kitchens is what will be considered a ‘contemporary home’. This sub-style is the most common in modern kitchens today. Although there is still a central focus on function and minimalism, this contemporary style expands the equation of some of the atmosphere found in the home environment.
