Shall we take a look?

1. Industrial design

This kitchen design takes on an industrial-chic look and feel with sharp lines, a clean look and feel, exposed brick and a metal pipe.

You'll also notice that there is plenty of storage, including the cupboards and drawers as well as the shelves on the wall. The storage units house a lot of the accessories and electrical appliances, keeping the counters bare of anything that isn't necessary or functional. 

The wooden counter tops add a warm and refreshing touch to the space, breaking up the cooler tones. The wooden shelf that runs along the upper walls match the counter tops, enhancing this warmth. 

This L-shaped design also shows how much space is left in the room, making for a very comfortable cooking environment.

2. Minimalist with excessive simplicity

This simple design is always a good option when it comes to a sleek and stylish kitchen. Instead of opting for elaborate details or over the top patterns, choose a minimalist look and feel. This will bring together excessive simplicity and elegance as well as flawless functionality. 

The storage units in this kitchen introduce darker tones, contrasting beautifully with the light walls and floors. The funky light is the cherry on top, showing how functionality and design work in harmony with one another.

3. For intelligent design

This kitchen makes the absolute most of the space available to it with a kitchen island that subtly separates the cooking area from the rest of the home, while still allowing for an interactive flow between the spaces.

Kitchen islands or bars can be a wonderful addition to a home, providing that much more storage as well an extra surface for cooking or preparing food.
