- Frameless cabinets: This is one of the most defining features of a Modern kitchen. The door style is typically a flat-paneled or slab-door and the cabinets are like I said, frameless which helps give off the sleekness of the overall kitchen. A good tip here is that when it comes to the cabinets, frameless, overlay, full overlay, and Euro frameless all mean the same thing!
- Sleek/simple hardware: The hardware used is more horizontal than anything else and they're usually tubular or flat linear pulls.
- Lack of ornamentation: This means that there's no pattern or texture and is usually the main difference between a Modern and a Contemporary kitchen. Modern kitchens have that well affiliated sleekness to it so they rarely have any tile patterns or lots of color to them.
- Lines: Modern kitchens are compromised by nothing but lines! This kitchen style really likes to emphasize on horizontal lines and you see them everywhere as the hardware, stacks of drawer cabinets lined in a row, and even islands give off the horizontal design.
- Accent pieces: When it comes to a modern kitchen, they typically have a monochromatic color scheme but that doesn't mean that it has to be like that. Lots of people have brought in color to their modern kitchens whether as colorful light fixtures, furniture, or decorative elements placed in kitchen shelves.
So there you have it, those are the 5 key elements of what makes a kitchen Modern. Check out more kitchens that have this style!
