If the idea of a modern kitchen design doesn‘t immediately grab you, then don‘t get caught up in trying to get everything you want into a sleek contemporary kitchen. You might want more rustic features and a homely feel that is more traditional. Remember, it‘s your kitchen and you shouldn‘t make any compromises on what you want.
The color choice for appliances is also very important and contributes to the total design statement. I would suggest if you are planning a traditional style kitchen use matching white wood front decorator panels on the dishwasher and refrigerator fronts as they will blend in better with the total look and use your choice for ovens, cook tops and sinks as stainless steel or black. In a contemporary style kitchen many designers choose to accent all appliances with contrasting colors to create a more dramatic look. In the past many people felt that white kitchen cabinets were only for showrooms and thought white was too much work to maintain. With today‘s new wood finishes and synthetic materials white kitchen cabinetry is as easy to maintain as any other stained color. White kitchen cabinets have been in style for the past 20 years and show no signs of going out of the style trends to date. It is much easier to change color themes from time to time by changing window treatments, place mats and countertop accessories with new accent colors if you choose.
One of the advantages in choosing a contemporary design for your kitchen is that you will have a large selection of colors and materials that you can use. The most popular material used in contemporary kitchens is stainless steel. You can install a stainless sink, stainless countertops, and a stainless oven to get a completely contemporary look. It is important to have large windows in your kitchen so that the light that comes in can give you that bright and clean feel to your kitchen.
