A Look At Contemporary Kitchen Cabinets
If you’re looking for a “flat” style kitchen cabinet to compliment your contemporary kitchen cabinet, we can help. This style cabinetry is the opposite of traditional, vintage, and classic styles. Its aesthetic is more sleek and modern, but in a unique way.
What customers love about these cabinets is that they are very minimalistic, meaning they blend very well into the background of the kitchen. While they are often confused for modern style cabinets, contemporary is a bit different. It borrows much of its style from modern but in different ways.
There are many benefits to contemporary cabinets. For one, they are easy to clean since the surface is all one flat layer. Often times our customers have a hard time cleaning their kitchen cabinets because of the detailed faces. Next, they can easily fit into tight spaces. This can be a huge plus if you live in a small home or an apartment when space is limited. The cabinet doors are thinner and have less ornaments on them, making it easier to close and store things around them. Lastly, contemporary cabinets are usually much longer than any other style cabinet. This means they offer much more room. Again, this can be a very big deal for those who are living in small, confined places.
Contemporary kitchen cabinets can be made of a few different materials, depending on the needs of the kitchen. Often you will find these cabinets made of glass, plastic, and metal. Very rarely will you see a contemporary kitchen cabinet made of wood. This is because wood, irregardless of how it’s built, doesn’t add to the aesthetic and feel that contemporary kitchens are trying to create. Plastic, metal, and glass are more sleek materials, which can be easily made into minimalistic cabinets to add to the overall contemporary style of the kitchen.
When deciding on colors for your contemporary kitchen cabinets, there are not too many options. Again, this is because of the style of contemporary kitchen cabinets – minimal. To stick with the sleek look, the color options are limited to: white, grey, and black. Of course, there are many shades of all three of these colors, which allow you to be creative. Often, kitchen designers will create contrasting colors between the cabinets and the rest of the kitchen. This can be a great way to give your kitchen a bold, fresh look.
