Sleek, angular, and simple. A modern kitchen features little by way of frills. Hardware is minimal and cabinet doors are flush, so that the high gloss surfaces, bold angles and signature curves make a visible statement. Moving away from the more natural aesthetic of a traditional style, modern kitchens often use man-made materials like laminate, ceramics and moulded plastics. Frosted glass, granite or caesar stone countertops, and brightly coloured furniture feature in modern kitchens and together bring a strong and striking effect to a home.
