Materials common in modern kitchen cabinets are often man-made and can include metal, plastic, concrete and glass. Semi-opaque or frosted glass is definitely a popular look for modern kitchen cabinets. Replacing old cabinet doors with frosted glass ones is a simple and cost-effective way to make your kitchen more modern. Modern kitchen cabinets can also be faced with wood veneer or plastic laminate. To achieve the characteristic modern look, you can use wood veneer with an exaggerated horizontal grain pattern. Mixed materials are also featured in modern kitchen design.
Modern design started around World War I and featured flat surfaces, geometric forms, and minimal ornamentation. Modern kitchen cabinets are characterized by this sleek, more angular design with a simplicity in their doors and frames. Recent modern design reflects a trend towards midcentury modern furniture, which features bold angles and curves. This design can be translated into modern kitchen cabinetry as well. Modern kitchen islands can harbor modern cabinets that reflect this angular or curved look and also feature up-to-date components to store cookware and dishware.
Color is another unique feature in modern kitchen cabinets. While the natural colors of wood veneer are popular in this design aesthetic, so are bold, less traditional colors. Deep reds and blues and fluorescent yellows, oranges and greens can be been seen in more daring modern kitchen designs.
Another efficient use of small kitchen cabinets is door storage. Attaching racks or shelves to the interior side of cabinet doors can allow you to double the amount of food stores or supplies they can hold. Similarly, consider adding tiered storage inside of small kitchen cabinets—this will allow you to see all the items stored inside and easily access whatever you need.
