modern kitchen designThe Modern Kitchen Design is clean and sharp looking and is characterized by an abundance of openness and space and a lack of clutter.

CABINETS

This style includes cabinets with smooth lines and very minimal hardware. Urban designs are known for using sleek and shiny materials and colours. Replacement of a number of cabinets with open shelving could fit well within the Modern Kitchen Design.

CENTER ISLAND

With cabinets on one side and seating (stools) on the other, a center island can serve as an additional workspace, as well as a bar. Modern islands are usually round or oval shaped.

LIGHTING AND FIXTURES

Modern hanging lights, bulbs, and fixtures placed in the center of the kitchen can all be great ideas. For an even bolder look, you can choose to purchase LED lighting.

FEATURES AND APPLIANCES

It is highly suggested that large appliances be stainless steel. It is best to display a minimal amount of small appliances on the counters. Glass backsplashes and chrome handles are also fantastic ideas you may like to consider.

BLACK IS BACK!

Merit Kitchen and Bath offers a large variety of colours, shades, and high quality materials for modern designs. If you are aiming for a an urban kitchen with a classy and sophisticated look, we recommend shiny black cabinets that can reflect the lighting. The addition of black marble countertops is an excellent choice. To add contrast, you may like to try white or grey marble instead.
