Gorgeous Contemporary Kitchens

When I am working with a client, one of my goals is to push them slightly out of their comfort zone. I might suggest a backsplash that is a little edgy, a wall color that is outside the norm or a furniture arrangement that goes against convention.

It is rare then, that I am the one being pushed outside my comfort zone when it comes to design however, I am currently working on a project that is doing just that. One of my current projects is to flip a high rise condo in the city. It has amazing views of Lake Michigan and is a gorgeous space. Since this is a flip, my general rule of thumb is to go transitional in the design. 

Transitional is a mix of traditional and modern and generally appeals to most buyers. However, the developer on this project wants to go contemporary. While I appreciate contemporary design, I would not say it is something I would usually do in my own home. In the process of trying to come up with a design plan, I have begun to rethink the whole idea of contemporary. I am drawn to its clean lines and uncluttered look. This is especially true for kitchens. Clean lines and simple uncluttered aesthetic are very appealing in a kitchen where things can get chaotic.

Here are some beautiful examples of modern kitchens that show that less really can be more.
