Contemporary cabinet hardware is always in Style!! Contemporary styling has been with us forever and it has never gone out of style. Contemporary styling is characterized by sleek modern lines, light silver tone finishes and a sophisticated elegance that never goes out of style. Popular silver toned finishes include satin nickel or bushed nickel, stainless steel, chrome, or pearl nickel. Some contemporary cabinet hardware designs include Euro-Contemporary, American Diner, Metropolis, and the Bungalow design family.
Contemporary cabinet hardware is most often used in contemporary styled kitchens. These include sleek lines, bold colors and simplicity. You can also use contemporary hardware in more traditional kitchens that use darker wood like cherry or hickory. In this case, the hardware will stand out and look like the "jewelry of your kitchen".
Contemporary designed cabinet hardware is often used in a single design family (like Euro-Contemporary or American Diner) but there are no rules that say you can't mix and match different contemporary designs. In fact, you can even mix contemporary with other styles like Transitional, Whimsical or even Traditional (if you dare!!). The point, is that your style is your style, and you are the person to decide what you want your kitchen and home to look like.
