100 Chic Kitchen Concepts

From Sleek Simple Sculleries to Compact Culinary Workspaces

— January 31, 2012 — Art & Design
These kooky kitchen concepts demonstrate that the manner in which people prepare food is changing. As living spaces shrink and unsustainable resources start to run out, kitchens are becoming increasingly compact and eco-friendly. Dual purpose appliances are enjoying a prolonged moment in the sun and kitchens that can be packed away are making enthusiastic waves through the interior design community.

These chic kitchen concepts may provide you with the motivation to overhaul your own culinary workspace. The kitchen is the heart of the home, after all, so it should be functional, as well as spacious and warm. These intriguing kitchens may raise a few eyebrows, but there isn't a cook alive who would pass up the opportunity to give each of them a whirl.

Clever, creative and compact, these chic kitchen concepts are a chef's dream.
