Smooth kitchens

Plain doors without any mouldings with smooth edges to create a simple contemporary look, or with the addition of some elaborate handles can become a sophisticated design.

Generally painted or lacquered to a smooth matt or gloss finish creating a contemporary look when adding slimline extra tall glass wall units as a decorative feature. Smooth doors are generally manufactured from MDF which has a paint finish, the big advantage painted MDF kitchens have over painted vinyl wrapped kitchens is there’s no chance of the door de-laminating.

End panels and cornice added to your kitchen upgrade the look with a classical level of detail or you can choose cleaner lines for a contemporary feel.
Add stainless steel appliances to complete the modern sleek look.

Defining the difference between “Contemporary” and “Modern”

It can be tough to distinguish between modern and contemporary, and for good reason. Many spaces are both modern and contemporary, and people often use the terms interchangeably, but there are differences in look and terminology. “Contemporary” typically means of the moment or current, the design of right now. “Modern” refers to a specific design style from the early to mid 20th century that broke with the traditional styles of the days before the Industrial Revolution. 

“Modern” can be a tricky term because sometimes it’s used to describe something that’s the opposite of traditional, which varies depending on the time period. The decision of women in the 1920s to swap corsets for flapper dresses was modern at the time, but today those clothes are antiques. 

When I think of modern kitchen designs, I think of frameless cabinets, sleek and simple hardware, strong horizontal lines and a lack of ornamentation, with the natural beauty of the materials shining through.
