As time goes on things change and so does style. One of the most common trends we have seen in the kitchen and bath remodeling arenas has been a move away from traditional styling to more contemporary styling.
Contemporary styling has been gaining steam and popularity for a while now. As the fastest growing kitchen styling in the United States, many new homeowners have stated they prefer contemporary styling to traditional styling by a long shot.
What is contemporary styling?
Borrowed from the modern design movement, contemporary styling combines functionality with streamlined surfaces and an often-stunning look. The styling focuses on created a clean and sleek look that can be gorgeous, but still highly livable.
Contemporary styling is often basic in design and color scheme. Most contemporary kitchens only utilize a color or two and the colors are basic. Steel, white, and black are the main colors used in modern contemporary styling.
One benefit contemporary styling provides homeowners is the ability to achieve the contemporary look with a few minor changes to the kitchen or bath. One easy way to do so is to use tile to renovate the vibe of your whole kitchen. It’s easy to create a strong contemporary design impact by simply redoing the tile backsplash in your kitchen or adding one.
