As the largest single surface in your kitchen, the cabinets you choose can set the tone for the style of the entire room. Your choice of materials, finish, color and hardware will impact the overall look of the kitchen. Sleek, modern kitchens need chic cabinetry, and these are four examples of sophisticated contemporary design. Use these to inspire your own luxury kitchen design.
Contrast is a frequent theme in contemporary design, and this kitchen amps up the contrast by combining blond wood and black counters. Drawer pulls and handles would have broken up the contrast between the cabinets and counters, so the flat front cabinet doors keep the kitchen looking simple and clean. Open shelving instead of upper cabinets helps to keep things open and airy.
Who says contemporary kitchens need to be stark and cold? The custom cabinets of this Santa Monica home are warm and welcoming! The strong wood grain brings a natural element to the otherwise clean, hard lines of the kitchen. The glass fronts help to keep the kitchen light and open. I also love the light fixture in this space!
Minimal designs, like the one found in this sleek kitchen, are a hallmark of contemporary designs. The glossy white cabinets, nearly hidden drawer pulls, and waterfall counter reinforce the straightforward design of the room. I love the stark contrast of that ceiling as well.
Modern design keeps decorative elements to a minimum. These kitchen cabinets blend together to create a wall of wood tones; even the appliances are camouflaged. The outlets are also made wood tone to blend in with their surroundings. All of these gorgeous contemporary kitchens are or were listings of mine.
