10 Amazing Modern Kitchen Cabinet Styles

  • January 28, 2019

The kitchen is truly the heart of the home — we know, it’s a cliche, but only because it’s true.

Think of the last big party you threw—you had the entire home spotless; you arranged comfy seating in every nook of the living room; you had tables set for buffet and hor d’oeuvres — but where did everybody end up gathering? The kitchen, of course!

Whether it’s hosting high-class guests or doing homework, it seems the kitchen always ends up acting as the homes central station. Since we spend so much time in this space, let’s make it as modern, glamorous and inviting as possible.

Here are 10 amazing modern kitchen cabinet ideas that will spark your own kitchen decorating:

1) Veneer Wood Cabinetry Can Be A Warm Kitchen Addition

The use of slab, wood veneer cabinet doors is a trend that adds warmth and depth to a modern kitchen. According to Taylor Craft Cabinet Door Company, slab veneer doors have been popular in Europe for decades and are now finally increasing in popularity in the United States.

Certainly there are numerous reasons for this growing popularity. One may suspect this is propelled by the growing trend towards natural products and bringing nature back into the home. Veneer slabs showcase wood grains in a magnificent manner; the grain patterns seem to tell a tale from the tree it originated, so of course nature lovers would enjoy this aesthetic.

2) Add the Sleek Style of Stainless Steel to Your Kitchen

Nothing says sleek and modern more than stainless steel. Most homeowners are opting for stainless steel appliances, even in their country-style kitchens. In order to make this trend completely contemporary, try adding steel kitchen cabinets.

Your kitchen will be a stylish modern mecca when outfitted with stainless steel cabinet doors. Aside from the high-end look, stainless steel cabinetry comes with some ups and downs. The down part is obvious, the fingerprints and potential for scratches. However, there are some stainless steel fabrications that claim to be highly resistant to these annoyances.

3) Lacquered Kitchen Cabinets Add a Lush Modern Look

Lacquered kitchen cabinets are like a newly painted car parked in your kitchen— bright, shiny and rich in color. Lacquer cabinets are manufactured by a process of applying numerous coats of lacquer, followed by polishing and waxing.

If done properly, lacquer finishes can be durable and scratch-resistant. However, most people would say that this type of finish is not the perfect choice for busy families with children because lacquer has been known to chip.

If you are willing to risk this, then the high-gloss shine of lacquer cabinets may be the choice for your modern kitchen cabinetry, as its sleek aesthetic is unmatched. You can get lacquer cabinets in virtually any color of your choosing, but be aware that in order to maintain that glossy sheen, you must clean them properly.

4) Floating Shelves Can Replace Kitchen Cabinetry

The epitome of modern design is clean lines. What better way to achieve a clean, open floor plan than by doing away with kitchen cabinets and installing floating shelves, instead?

Floating shelves add straight lines that pair well with any modern or contemporary decor. Most homeowners opt for this style for the upper cabinets and then have closed cabinetry doors for the bottom half of their kitchen. This allows for storage of all those unsightly appliances and utensils.

5) Modern Kitchen Cabinets Can Still Have Color

When most think of a modern kitchen, their minds immediately envision a sleek white or black kitchen void of bright colors, but color can be modern, too.

Why not have cherry red lacquer or laminate cabinets? Or bright cobalt blue? Or even try teal on for size? All of these colors can be used in conjunction with contemporary decor. Especially when it comes to mid-century modern decor — well-placed color and pattern is king for this epic era of style.

6) Modern White Kitchen Cabinets

Maybe the idea of brightly colored cabinets sends frightening chills up your spine, if so, then a simple white kitchen may be the best choice for you.

What could be better than glistening white cabinets that reflect the sunshine into your home? White kitchens are popular for a very good reason, no matter the style of the home—they keep the kitchen looking clean (even when the dirty dishes are piled sky-high).

This look can be achieved via numerous finishes such as paint, glossy lacquer, melamine, or veneer. No matter what your budget, a clean, modern white kitchen can be yours.

7) Stained Wood Kitchen Cabinet Styles Can be Modern

Pickled white cabinets are not exactly all the rage right now, but you can still stain wooden cabinets with a tint of color to achieve a unique contemporary design.

8) Take Out the Upper Kitchen Cabinets for a Modern Space

Skipping the upper kitchen cabinets entirely may seem a bit risky to some, but by doing so you can really achieve quite the open, modern space.

In place of upper cabinetry, you can add an amazing back splash that travels up to the ceiling, or you have room for an ultra-modern stainless steel hood over the stove.

Of course, this style may not be right for those who require a lot of kitchen storage. As you can imagine, without upper cabinets, your storage space is halved.

If storage is not an issue for you, then this open, clean aesthetic may be the best choice for your modern kitchen.

9) Distressed Gun Metal Steel Kitchen Cabinets

Here is a look your neighbors will not have (but they will surely envy when they see it).

If a hidden kitchen appeals to you, then this unique look may be yours. You would have to consult a metal fabricator and cabinet door maker to have these custom cabinets made to your specifications. One thing to remember: hot-rolled galvanized steel will result in a different look each time — no two will ever be the same.

10) Mix up Your Kitchen Cabinet Styles by Combining Wood, Lacquer and Paint

After admiring all of these unique cabinet styles, you are surely having trouble deciding what appeals to you most.

Why not try a mixture of all of them? Even in a minimalist interior you can mix up the palette a bit. Why not try lower wood cabinets in combination with upper white lacquered ones? Or veneered walnut cabinet side panels with shiny lacquered faces? Or stainless steel floating upper shelves with painted lower wood cabinets.

The combinations are endless and you are certain to achieve a style that is uniquely you. If mixing it up is something you are interested in trying, then it may be best to consult an interior designer and a professional cabinet maker. There are just too many combos to choose from, and you want to make sure you still end up with a minimalist kitchen, not a messy mixture.
