Kitchen Design: Contemporary in the Suburbs

Can I do a contemporary kitchen in the middle of suburbia?

“Contemporary is the watchword for North American kitchen design, according to the 2015 Kitchen & Bath Design Trends report from the National Kitchen & Bath (NKBA).
Are all these kitchens in urban loft-style homes? No, actually they are your neighbors. A lot of these homes have a small kitchen remodel making them even better.
“The rise of contemporary and transitional kitchen designs have been swift. Both styles have increased in specifications by more than 15 percentage points in just four years. –NKBA
We are doing sleek, modern kitchens in all styles of homes. This clean, linear style has great appeal. The simple, crisp lines are pleasing to the eye, and easy to care for.
This home was featured in Naperville Magazine. The kitchen is perfectly modern, from the light fixtures at the ceiling, to the sleek cabinetry, to the touches of chrome and bright accent color. Interesting materials and textures keep this large open space feeling welcoming.
You can see this home at:
Think Sleek. Glossy. Chrome. Linear, with the emphasis on horizontal. Dramatic lighting. Cutting-edge appliances. Glass.
We did this suburban kitchen in high gloss laminate and Charcoal stained maple. Open and bright, it allows the view outside to be the focal point.

So maybe you’re thinking about Contemporary. These smart European frameless ‘slab’ door styles are drawn straight from Italy. Paired with minimalist hardware and décor, and even touches of Industrial design, this style is fun and exciting to design in!  But to maintain such a stylish kitchen is a tough part. Hence to find an Adelaide Maid2Match is the best bet one can have is if they have such a kitchen and want it to look as good as it was initially installed.

This suburban kitchen used many contemporary elements: the glass in the cabinets, the brushed stainless backsplash, the industrial flavored shelving and hardware, and the wire track lighting. Keeping the colors and materials consistent throughout the first floor allows the kitchen to flow beautifully with the rest of the home’s other more traditional furnishings.
