Don’t like modern? Rustic is not something you’re cut out for? No way to go minimal, but you want classy?
Contemporary kitchens embody classic style and modern appeal at the same time. In a good contemporary kitchen you can find the balance between a crisp, fresh kitchen design and something that is safer, more appealing to the public (apparently, resale value is something lot of people consider when investing to a kitchen)
Most of the contemporary kitchen designs do originate in Europe, however as they become more and more popular, expect more and more US companies offer them as well.
The doors have a simple painted profile, giving the design a classical outlook. Even the format of the tall units on the back wall suggest English classical style but there are many contemporary features here too. The asymmetrical format of units and open shelves over the hob, the pocket door system integrated into the larder, the waterfall worktop that hugs the base units and the funky island design all scream trendy kitchen at the viewer. The kitchen island works great providing seating area.
Just look at that open shelf, complete with sliding door that helps concealing all cooking activity from guests visiting for dinner. This kitchen also flows seamlessly into the dining area giving great continuity to the space!
This design by Castagna Cucine is a great example of how a kitchen can seamlessly blend into the living area in a way that’s not too sterile. I can say it’s “safe contemporary” style – having a wider appeal than a strictly minimalistic kitchen would have
