House Beautiful’s Kitchen of the Year 2014 is” a study in contrast, texture and light reflectivity,” said Steven Miller of Steven Miller Design Studio. Solidifying the trend towards minimalist kitchen design, using natural materials, black hardware and non-traditional lighting, Steven Miller brings a contemporary look to traditional basics that make a kitchen the functional hub of every home.

He also goes on to say that the room is classic, functional and forward looking. More and more people are opting for sleek, modern design styles instead of older decor, according to IKEA whose record profits in 2013 validate this trend.

The 2014 Kitchen of the Year is a powerful example of this trend when you notice the slim profile of the white Caesarstone countertops, Kohler’s Stages sink and HiRise faucets, Grothouse Lumber Peruvian Walnut countertops. The black enameled cabinetry from KraftMaid and Black Ice appliances from Whirlpool give this kitchen “the modern energy with a fresh contemporary sensibility” as Steven Miller describes it so accurately.
