Traditional kitchens with their Shaker cabinets and ornate pulls will always hold a special place in our hearts. And don't get us wrong—we love an open-shelving moment. But these modern kitchen cabinet ideas—which are clean, streamlined, and entirely unencumbered—will give any space a fresh and orderly appeal.
In the kitchen of a ranch house in upstate New York, a root table found at an upstate New York auction was fitted with a glass top, the Josef Hoffmann chairs are covered in a vintage Larsen fabric, the ceiling incorporates beams from a 19th-century Pennsylvania barn and the lights are by Isamu Noguchi. The cabinetry and countertops are by Bulthaup, the refrigerator is by Sub-Zero, the oven is by Miele, the sink fittings are by Grohe, the flooring is Cuban cement tile and the walls are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Linen White.
Get the best of both worlds with clouded glass — the semi-transparent finish feels light, but still offers concealed storage. No one needs to see what's behind those doors. Grays can soften the contrast between black and white. It's also a complement to stainless steel in a kitchen.
There's nothing wrong with loving neutrals. The key to keep it from feeling sterile is to layer a few shades. You can paint cabinets in a darker white to contrast bright marble countertops, for example, which adds dimension.
Add a reflective finish to make ebony cabinets stand out even more. This look is great for a kitchen that gets a lot of natural light. Lacking space? Fake it 'til you make it with antiqued mirrored glass on cabinet doors. It'll enlarge a small kitchen.
Adding contrast when you want to keep the color palette white is challenging, but that's where hardware comes in. Add dark rustic hinges to up the country kitchen vibes. Pine cabinets work for anything from coastal to rustic to industrial decor. The gray undertones complement steel appliances.
In a London townhouse, the kitchen cabinetry by Plain English is painted in Pure Grey 6 by Papers and Paints, the 1955 pendant lights are by Serge Mouille, the wall tiles are by Neisha Crosland, and the floor is made of three types of limestone.
