Kitchen Design Revolution

Kitchen Design Revolution
If the living area is the metaphorical hearth of any home, then the kitchen is the heart. It is not only a functional entity, it is also a space that has defined the prerequisites of residential interior designs for more than quite a few centuries. Kitchen design started with a small room with a small hearth and a few wooden shelves, and today, it has become a large commercial enterprise. People pay millions of dollars to craft a fully functional, fully equipped state of the art commercial kitchen, but that might be too ambitious an endeavor for a small residential kitchen.
Residential kitchens have evolved in practice and designs throughout cultures, and throughout the world. While before, it used to be a fully enclosed room with the bare minimum of necessities, the kitchen of today has taken on the form of an aesthetic piñata. It is a showcase, a deliberately open masterpiece that is now cleverly integrated with the rest of the house itself. Where an open kitchen was just an American invention before, today it has become a frequent design practice all over the world. Furthermore, there have been additions of breakfast nooks, attaché dining areas and pantries. The once purely functional and pragmatic essence of the kitchen has now metaporhed into a newer, better entity. Below, we’ll be taking a look at a few modern interpretations of the kitchen design genre.
Bright White
Clean cut and brightly lit, this modern kitchen would be a perfect fit for a small single person apartment or a tiny home. It tries to emulate function but does not leave the aesthetics behind. Though the meticulous selection of accessories is what adds panache to the entire setting, the white is what gives an atmospheric brightness to the small space – it makes this kitchen seem larger than it is. The illusion is only reinforced by the sterile fluorescent lighting scheme. Overall, the brightness of this kitchen interior is what adds life to its design.

Industrial Brutalism
The bare gray concrete scheme of this kitchen interior is only one part of this design. The slate grey concrete adds a dichotomy of industrial and minimalist vibes that gives this kitchen a sleek, cutting edge look. The stainless steel appliances only add to this manifesto, creating a kitchen interior that shies far from the conventional coziness of a regular kitchen design.

The Open Kitchen
This one is a beautiful physical simulation of a modern open kitchen. The light color scheme perfectly complements the airy architectural planning of the kitchen space. Though it is open in formation, there is still a logic to the entire setting. The back part is reserved for cooking and preparation, while the front caters to an attaché dining area that can be a breakfast nook as well as a formal dining room.

Minimalism at its best, this small kitchen is the perfect fit for a small apartment. Small and spacious at the same time, this kitchen emulates the open scheme while adhering to the concepts of minimalism. It also part industrial and part kitsch, but a whole lot contemporary minimalist.
