The modern kitchen is characterised by a minimalistic and clutter-free look, a design that is loosely categorised as a design style between traditional and contemporary. Modernism originated in the latter part of the 19th century and was known for abstract thinking in a search for new forms of expression. A modern style kitchen is simple and clean looking encompassing all that is sleek and streamlined. The key to developing a modern kitchen that makes a lasting impression is to incorporate both form and function.
A modern kitchen is usually characterized by a monochromatic colour scheme and clean lines, with large windows allowing for plenty of natural light. In modern kitchens, open-plan areas create a more welcoming atmosphere where the area transforms into a dine-in space. With its clean lines and sleek appearance, the Modern style is a great option for creating a minimalist kitchen. Creating an idealistic space for families to gather, this simple but beautiful kitchen feels spacious and airy.
