Jumpstart Your Day: 4 Unique Kitchens

These spaces take kitchen design to a whole new level


We're used to seeing different kitchen layouts depending on the size of the home. Small spaces have kitchens that are adjacent to the dining area while there are homes with their cooking spaces located in another part of the house. 

Layouts and styles may vary but have you ever seen a kitchen designed like a greenhouse or a minimalist space with no essentials on display? Here are unique kitchens that you may want to consider for your dream home.

The elements present in the kitchen are the same in any other home but the one thing that separates it from the rest is the house-shaped structure that separates it from the other areas of the house. The cabinets provide ample storage space for kitchen essentials.

Where are the utensils? Where are the cabinets? Found in a minimalist apartment designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune, this kitchen highlights hidden storage and "secret" cabinets. The look is very clean and streamlined.

This kitchen is conveniently placed outdoors but it can also look like it's indoors when the sliding doors are closed. The overall design is very laid-back -- perfect if you love hosting get-togethers for family and friends.

Futuristic vibe

Well-chosen tiles and a mirrored ceiling make this kitchen a cut above the rest. The space is efficient for cooking and meal prepation as one side holds the different utensils and essentials while the other side has the counter and stove. Separating the stove from the sink enables the owners to work effectively since they won't crowd the same area when working.
