The contemporary kitchen is uncluttered and unadorned. It appeals to people who like clean and sleek. To achieve this clean, spacious look, contemporary cabinets will not have any crown molding or raised panels. Instead, the cabinets will have flat surfaces with sleek, simple hardware and no other decorative accents. Countertops are square-edged, often metal or underlighted glass. Light fixtures are works of art. Accessories are minimal. Appliances are often disguised as cabinets.
