Most people tend to interchange “modern” and “contemporary”. Contemporary refers to the current trends or something in fashion at the moment. In contrast, modern refers to a specific design movement that arose around World War I started.
When it comes to modern kitchen designs, we often associate them with geometrical forms and generally flat surfaces with little to no decorations. It’s a layout with an open space adorned by minimalist styling and post-industrial materials such as stone and natural timber.
Post-industrial materials include stone, wood, slate, and granite. Surprisingly, these materials complement the kitchen really well when completed fully. They create an inviting atmosphere and give a warmer tone to the colour palette.
- More industrial elements
- Accent pieces flow consistently in style
- Simple design without so many decorative items
