The past few years have brought the mid-century style popularized in 1945-1969. The clean, sleek lines and simplistic surfaces (and occasional bright pop of color) have been revitalized with the minimalistic movement across the world.
Today we'll be highlighting some of our favorite mid-century modern kitchens and the features that make this style so endearing to so many.
1. Warm Cabinet Colors This kitchen is the epitome of a mid-century modern style. With warm, soft colors accented by the walnut colored kitchen cabinets, the aesthetic is one of simple and industrial elegance. With the pop of the marble backsplash, this kitchen is a modern take on a traditional style.
2. Pop of Color
A signal to its retro roots, this mid century modern kitchen plays on the modern elements of the flat kitchen cabinet design, while emphasizing the backsplash, vent and oven taken from the original design movement. So fun, so snazzy.
3. Matching Wooden Floors
Creating an illusion of seamless flow, the walnut flooring matches perfectly with the walnut style cabinets, made possible by the walnut toe kick. This uniformity in color underlies the root aesthetic of the mid-century modern style: clean lines and a timeless modernity.
4. Accent Kitchen Island
Perhaps the most modern part of this style is the slow evolution to using light colored kitchen islands to accent the otherwise earthy tones of mid-century modern kitchen. This waterfall island establishes the clean lines echoed in the light walnut kitchen cabinets, while also serving as a utilitarian feature as well.
5. Black Chrome Accents
Another modern direction this style has taken in recent years is the emphasizing of dark lines and accents in black chrome. Give your modern kitchen an industrial and clean vibe that emphasizes the structure of the mid-century modern aesthetic.
