IslandA popular look in contemporary kitchens is an island with a waterfall edge, which is when the counter material continues along the short edge of the island, like a waterfall tumbling off a cliff. This photo is a good example. FlooringConcrete, or materials that look like concrete, as shown in this photo, are excellent for a contemporary kitchen, but there are many floor types that can work. The key is not looking rustic (like knotty or rough wood grains) or heavily patterned or vintage (like Spanish or Moroccan tiles). Pattern in contemporary floors tends to be subtle or nonexistent. Oversize tile in concrete or porcelain can work, as can hardwoods.Countertops and backsplashIn contemporary kitchens, the countertops and backsplash are frequently made of the same material, which is often a manmade option such as engineered quartz or solid surface. Watch out for too much pattern in a natural material, as it could pull the kitchen into a different design direction. For instance, “most granite cannot be very contemporary feeling,” Rasky says. As for the countertop finish, “you’re going to see two things: Shiny or matte – and less of an in-between,” Curtis says.The backsplash doesn’t always have to be the same as the countertop, though. “There are so many options for materials,” Riguerra says. Glass tiles with clean lines can make for a contemporary look, as can more contemporary ceramic tiles or even a stone if it is “more uniform-looking,” she says. Appliances and fixturesRange hoods as well as appliances tend to be sleek with minimal lines. Faucets tend to be clean and sleek, often in stainless steel or matte black.Check out these 5 kitchen tiles that rule the roost

The white marble island is large and eye catching.
