Flaunting gorgeous, clean lines, modern but comfortable furnishings, and functional spaces, this design style focuses on making a house a purposeful home.
Contemporary European Kitchens boast large amounts of storage by going vertical with whole wall cabinets. The cabinets are typically a slab style, without decoration and simple, but sleek hardware.
Knobs and pulls feature straight lines and geometric features. Some designs in this style will use warm-toned, natural woods. Others utilize a laminate in a glossy or matte finish, sometimes in a bold color.
If you're choosing the colorful, expressive route feel free to carry the color through your design with your cooking accessories! Utensils and tools strategically placed on counters can serve as beautiful decor as well as a time-saver when you're preparing a meal. The modern style of today's kitchen accessories blends perfectly with contemporary European design elements.
To create a more neutral space, choose a warm, light wood tone for your cabinets and floors. Woods such as ash, oak, or maple can bring warmth while also keeping a space bright and neutral. Elevate the feeling of comfort by incorporating even more natural materials like granite countertops and wooden furniture.
If the design is feeling flat, don't be afraid to add some contrast! Matte Black is a great finish to add to a contemporary European design, particularly in an angular and geometric form.
Ultimately, the contemporary European design style focuses on creating spaces that are welcoming, clean and crisp.
