Warm and Inviting Contemporary Style
Some consider "warm and inviting contemporary" to be an oxymoron when in fact, sleek, modern contemporary design can be just that, warm and inviting.
In the kitchen below, a textured foil slab door (Urbana door style in Nutshell) has been paired with a classic painted finish for beautiful results. Despite its sleek design, the foil door purposefully resembles a sunbleached oak door and the horizontal plank detail on the front of the island is a nod toward traditional design.
For homeowners that appreciate a more sleek contemporary design but want an inviting and warm look, perhaps this mix of materials is exactly what you are looking for!
Tip-up doors make excellent use of space over the sink and are convenient to access. Doors flip up and out of the way, instead of swinging into the room toward you. With a tip-up door, a bumped head is easily avoided when emptying the dishwasher while cabinet doors are open.
