In contrast to traditional and farmhouse kitchens, modern kitchens sport sharp lines and sleek minimalism. The lack of bright colors and decorations creates a clean, almost sterile look. When done right, however, a modern kitchen remodel feels more luxurious and rich than barren.
Modern kitchen remodels are typically outfitted mostly with man-made materials such as laminate and tile, as opposed to farmhouse and traditional kitchens that tend to feature natural materials. They can, however, utilize natural materials for accents and adding visual interest to the minimalist space without undoing the modern aesthetic.
Frameless cabinetry with low-profile handles, or sometimes no handles, creates a seamless look and bold angles that really represent the modern aesthetic. The doors lack any detailing or grooves, like what is commonly seen in traditional kitchens. The flat, monochromatic doors maintain a minimalist look. Clean, seamless cabinetry carries a uniform look throughout the kitchen.
Minimalism doesn’t apply only to the core design elements of a modern kitchen remodel, such as the cabinetry and countertops. Modern kitchens contain very few decorative elements, keeping them free of clutter and maintaining the sleek and spartan aesthetic. While other kitchen styles rely heavily on decorative elements to elevate their aesthetic, modern kitchens are elevated through the lack of excess. One or two small decorations are all a modern kitchen needs.
Monochromatic Color Scheme
Very few modern kitchen remodels include bright or bold colors. Most modern kitchens are monochromatic with accents of wood or another natural element rather than a flashy color. Some that use natural elements, such as wood, stain it dark to keep it within the monochromatic color scheme and maintain the minimalist aesthetic.
