Minimal Kitchen Designs


When Jay and I discuss our kitchen design, we know what we want. We want matte white lacquer cabinets with no handles. We want white corian counter tops. We want all the appliances integrated so it doesn’t look like a kitchen. That’s right, we want a kitchen that doesn’t look like a kitchen.

What do you think lovely readers? Do you think this look is too new? Too cold? I agree the images above are a bit stark, it’s their artistic look – they’re trying to prove their point.

In our world everything is white as well, but the floors are a wide-plank vintage-looking ash wood, and the floor-to-ceiling windows let in the green forest and blue ocean on one side and the granite wall on the other. And our sofa is in the same room:
