Mid Century Modern Kitchen Cabinets
Mid-century modern, or MCM, style cabinetry implements design principles of the years following World War II, mainly the mid-1940s to the late 1960s. In other words, it follows the design style that was considered “modern” in the middle of the 20th century.
Everything eventually comes back into style, and it appears that the interior design trends from the 40s-60s are no exception. Countless kitchen remodels and designs today are influenced by the style from this era, known as mid-century modern. This style is characterized by clean lines, useful functionality, a blend of traditional and non-traditional elements, as well as contrasting elements such as wood and plastic.
The Benefits of Mid-Century Modern Kitchen Cabinets
During the middle of the last century, North America was booming in both economic prosperity and population growth. This led to countless families purchasing and furnishing brand new homes as suburbs exploded in size and popularity. New building techniques and styles were being explored, and the population was excited to welcome what was new.
Today’s mid-century modern kitchen cabinets showcase original design principles, featuring warm, organic, and geometric elements. Functionality is of key focus, but implementing materials in interesting ways is also a big part of this style.
Whether you’re living in a beautiful turn-of-the-century home and looking to revitalize its original style or seeking to bring some of the interesting elements of MCM into your updated home, mid-century modern kitchen cabinets tend to feature spacious and clean design elements with wood and color implemented side by side.
Similar to today’s modern and contemporary styles, mid-century modern was understated, so mid-century modern cabinets tend to lack unnecessary details, such as ornate carvings. However, in contrast to today’s modern style, mid-century modern typically opted for curved and rounded form over straight, hard edges.
A key feature of mid-century modern design is its clean lines. Look for something that is straight and sleek without any decorative elements in the cabinet itself. All the cabinet options offered by Mod Cabinetry fit the bill perfectly.
By combining different colors of cabinets in your kitchen, you can give it an air of modernism and variety. For example, with Naturals by Mod Cabinetry choose painted white upper cabinets and walnut lower cabinets. Using the wood and the white, you’ll get the warmth of classics and the edge of modern.
Choosing mid-century modern cabinets is an opportunity to bring unique, attractive style into your kitchen while never sacrificing function. Mid-century modern is both elegant and impactful, making it a fantastic choice for your kitchen cabinetry.
