How the Modern Kitchen Evolved? A Timeline From 1920 To 2020

Remodelling of kitchens are one of the largest and most popular markets of the architectural industry. It is a favourite of the designers’ as well. And glass cabinets are a very important part of their journey. In this infographic, let’s trace how the kitchen designs have been evolving since the last decade.

The Evolution of Modern Kitchens, Through the Ages

The modern kitchen first took its step in the 1920s, as a freestanding, metal kitchen cabinet, popular in white colour. In the next decade, the kitchen cabinets were made with metal and wood, with countertops that had a smooth-finish. These remained popular even 20 years later.

The modern kitchen finally started taking a proper shape in the 1940s. The kitchens now had unit cabinets, coordinated finishes, textures and smooth counter top displays. The next decade saw the introduction of L-shaped and U-shaped kitchens which were detailed with bright colours and checkered floors, with rounded corners.

In the next decade, more dramatic colours made their entries. Detailed wallpapers, countertops in bright tiles and gold accents came along too. Earthy tones were the most popular, with dark wood cabinets, vinyl, brass, and other mixed materials in the next decade.

In the 1980s, modern kitchen took its initial steps with curve-edged cabinets and geometric patterns. The 1990s saw simple colours, maple-glazed cabinets and oat cabinetry.

The busy families of the 2000s fell in love with the woody kitchens and it became the primary design point.

The following two decades (2010-2020) saw the prevalence of white in the kitchen. But the kitchen styles varied. 

While cabinet colours vary slightly across the ages, what still remains intact is the love towards glass cabinets that always make the kitchen space look classy.
