The term "modern" can mean different things to different people, but if you're in the market for modern kitchen cabinets, it probably means you're looking for a sleek, angular, updated look—as opposed to one of the more historical cabinet styles.

In general, modern kitchen cabinets will be characterized by a sleeker, more angular design, with less ornamentation and a simpler, sleeker look overall. They may also feature bolder, less traditional colors, like deep reds or fluorescent yellows and greens.

In recent years, modern kitchen cabinet styles have been a reflection of the overall trend toward midcentury modern furniture, often featuring pieces with bold angles and curves.

Another feature of modern kitchen cabinet design is the mixing of materials. Whereas traditional kitchen cabinets are often exclusively wood, modern kitchen cabinets may combine materials like wood, laminate materials, glass and even metal for a more industrial feel.
