Concrete and wood battle it out in this industrial design. Spot and multi-level hanging lights frame one side, a cupboard-panel-as-art-piece the other. Small spaces can benefit from grey the most. This light-grey design only slightly contrasts with wooden panelling, while a minimal bench offers class in slate. Corrugated plastic adds modernity to this kitchen, an unusual find with concrete benching. A slither of wood acts as a focal benchtop.
While traditional kitchen styles tend to emphasize material and color palettes, modernist designers are exploring the world of unconventional geometric design and creative framing. The kitchens in this post range from futurist styles based on sharp asymmetric polygons, all the way to otherwise classic compositions that break the mold by emphasizing innovative uses of proportion and shape – bold and subtle in turn. Many of these spaces sit on the high end of the luxury spectrum but others employ simple tricks that any handy DIY enthusiast can use. Which modern kitchen is your favorite?

Wooden floors and a white tiled inlet meet a striped rug, wide-paned cabinets and a death star-style lamp.
