Another week done. As tends to happen–for me at least–annually, we’ve reached that time of the year where the days just seem to be flying by, and before you know it, it will be Thanksgiving. I wasn’t thinking of this seque when I wrote that last sentence, but I’ll use it anyway: the holiday that’s mostly spent in the kitchen–Thanksgiving. I don’t know about you, but my house was essentially built to feature the kitchen; it has vastly more square footage, per minute in use, than any other room in the place, and it’s open to the dining and living area. It could in no way be considered minimalist. But today I’m featuring five minimalist kitchens that I think would serve up equally scrumptious Thanksgiving meals. Let me know what you think of these:
I really like the repeating volumes of the island and the hood enclosure in this space. Also working for me: the visual texture provided by the flooring and choice of cabinetry.
The combination of a long island with eating space on one end, the interesting over-counter lighting frame, and the wide stainless steel cooking built-in area make this kitchen really interesting.
This industrial/minimalist kitchen almost disappears from view. That the entirety of the lower cabinet area is filled with either appliances (those first three are all refrigeration) or open shelving is terrific.
The way the components of this kitchen have been added into the larger space has a sculptural or modular feel. It’s almost as if the kitchen is temporarily docked at that end of the room.
A bright, white, clean kitchen that seems to be all about quiet competence.
