Soft Contemporary

Soft Contemporary Kitchens

"This kitchen is definitely a soft contemporary versus a high-tech contemporary. What's really contributing to that are the cabinets themselves. It's a slab door in a bird's-eye maple veneer for a nice clean look. There's a lot of stainless steel, dark uba tuba granite, and contemporary pendant lights over the bar, in keeping with the modern style. Consumers want something that's inviting, welcoming, warm-we've been hearing those words a lot lately."

"This kitchen blends the stainless contemporary feel with simple warmth. The tile on the floor adds some pizzazz and color so that the kitchen doesn't feel drained. But it's not cold and harsh-it's somewhere you'll get together with a couple of friends, break out wine and make pasta."
