Modern Kitchen Design

Simpler materials, clean lines, bold colors and geometric lay-outs characterize contemporary kitchen design aesthetic. Look for sleek kitchen cabinets and hardware that complements the natural flooring and countertops.

For a modern kitchen design in your home, our design team will focus on a variety of aspects of your kitchen so that everything blends seamlessly into an updated, contemporary aesthetic. Cabinets, for example, will tend to be in the flat-panel door style, and they’ll be constructed without a frame. Hardware, such as cabinet door handles, will be sleek, simple, and fully integrated into the cabinet, often running the full length of doors or drawers. Whereas traditional kitchen design encourages embellishments and decorations, modern kitchen design embraces a minimalistic look; any ornamentation tends to be from natural materials.

Contemporary kitchen design may also mix materials, and appliances will be sleep and of the latest technology. Accentuating the minimalistic, modern look is an emphasis on horizontal lines, whether it’s in the grain on the front of a cabinet or long, low drawers. Many homeowners choose to show their unique personality through an unusual backsplash, perhaps featuring a distinct tile pattern. Finally, industrial details such as stainless steel appliances complete a modern kitchen.

With the help of a Drury designer, you can enjoy a modern kitchen that fits your family’s needs and style without feeling cold or impersonal. Here are some recent examples of contemporary ultramodern kitchen designs from our portfolio of client projects.
