What are some key elements of contemporary kitchens?

I am remodeling my kitchen and want to make sure I include some of the latest key elements that are in kitchens.

Including simple lines and designs is a must for decorating your kitchen. Mixing solid colors and modular shapes works with this design.

One of the most popular designs is to have open space even with a kitchen. Stainless steel appliances are the new rave. Granite countertops, which are expensive, but extremely sturdy is another must for most new kitchens. If budget conscious, try checking out bamboo cabinets, curtains, flooring and countertops.


Answer by  linsm (898)

Many new homeowners or those who are remodeling prefer granite tops and natural stone flooring. Stainless steel appliances have become a must. Center islands continue to be another popular feature. Stylish cabinets which are sleek lined, ridding the kitchen of clutter are also at the top of the list.

Some contemporary elements which I would call modern standards are like a dishwasher, a garbage disposal. Sometimes dual sinks is considered a key element as well as ovens and stove tops built into the center of your island.

Key elements in a contemporary kitchen are clean lines and very neutral colors. The colors are often muted and one-tone. There aren't any decorative elements or borders in the cabinetry. It is often flat front, one color, solid cabinet.

Sleek lines are very important. Many contemporary kitchens have minimal clutter - counter-top appliances are hidden from view. Also cabinet doors are usually flat - there is rarely trim on contemporary cabinet doors. Stainless steel back-splashes are a popular new trend. Natural stone counter-tops are also a common choice for contemporary kitchens.

Chrome and steel surfaces give your kitchen a modern look: in addition to your appliances, you can update cabinet hardware too. Innovative faucet designs will also update the look.
