Contemporary components: Beside the modern appliances, an attention-grabbing black painted island provides a decidedly modern vibe to this warm and heavily traditional kitchen.
A contemporary kitchen is not the same as a modern kitchen, even though some people use these terms interchangeably. A contemporary kitchen can be modern but it can also adopt other styles as well. For example, it can have vintage details and accents without being a vintage kitchen.
The variety of materials. Contemporary kitchens usually feature a multitude of materials, textures and patterns. The contrasts are highly valued and seen as a subtle way of replacing opulent decorations and details.
Traditional components: Rich earth tones, loads of natural materials, and a lot of visual things going on in this kitchen make it feel like it’s been around for years. Traditional gold-framed artwork and a variety of color on almost all surfaces definitely send out a hearty sit-down-and-have-a-homecooked-meal vibe.
Traditional components: Farmhouse (apron) kitchen sink with traditional-style faucet, simple white cabinetry faces. Also the legged wooden island with wood paneling is a lovely traditional touch. Contemporary components: Modern blinds window treatment (and the absence of colored textiles that would’ve comprised a shade or valance), stainless steel accents, and marble countertops are contemporary additions to this huge space.
