1. The Contemporary Design Style
The contemporary design style is a refreshing design style for your kitchen. A contemporary kitchen is a kitchen with a functional style that also is the center of the limelight (it can have access to the patio or garden area of your house). This style is supposed to be clean-lined, allowing lots of light, and avoiding excessive use of ornamentation. It seeks for a clutter-free environment.
In order to avoid designing a kitchen that looks almost cold or boring for your contemporary kitchen, add dramatic accents of colour to the background and incorporate textures to complement the sleek, smooth surfaces of the wood and metal glass. Texture can come from woven rugs in bold colours. Use slick lines, but avoid curved legs. The structural element in a contemporary design draws attention to the architectural elements of the room, including the window. So the windows are unadorned or a simple window treatment is used. You can choose bamboo blinds to accent the window frame.
Here are examples of a contemporary design for a kitchen.
