Skipping the upper kitchen cabinets entirely may seem a bit risky to some, but by doing so you can really achieve quite the open, modern space. Take a look at the kitchen in the image below — its sleek black and white styling, sans upper cabinets, is very appealing. In place of upper cabinetry, you can add an amazing back splash that travels up to the ceiling, or you have room for an ultra-modern stainless steel hood over the stove.
For a contemporary kitchen, forgo traditional cabinets in the darker-stained wood tones and go with color. Color cabinets are a great way to add personality to a kitchen. The best part is that certain painted cabinets can be repainted as needed without having to replace them. The boldest color choices today are not necessarily bright yellow or saturated primary colors. Today’s neutral colors make a big, modern-yet-classic statement like: grey, blue, white, taupe
If you are willing to risk this, then the high-gloss shine of lacquer cabinets may be the choice for your modern kitchen cabinetry, as its sleek aesthetic is unmatched. You can get lacquer cabinets in virtually any color of your choosing, but be aware that in order to maintain that glossy sheen, you must clean them properly.
