Modern design is a style of decor that focuses on minimalism, neutral colors, clean design lines and environmentally-friendly materials. Simple and unadorned furniture is a must for this style. Cabinetry is usually taken to the ceiling to avoid dust traps and unsightly gaps. Handles and knobs are made of chrome or stainless steel in most cases, and their keep the same simple, streamlined appearance as the cabinetry itself. Clutter has no place in a modern kitchen, so there is a variety of storage options to choose from, which include waste bins, opening systems, pull out drawers, corner units, rails and mid-way wall items.
