Kooky Kitchens: The Most Surprising Designs We’ve Seen
  • Opening Intro -

    When we think of the most surprising room in the house, we rarely say our kitchen.

    Why is that?


Is it because most of us get used to the kitchen we got when we first moved into our apartment or home? If we do decide to renovate our kitchens, why do we stick with the tried and true? This article will introduce you to five kitchens that have surprised interior design experts in recent months.

Breakfast Nook

Breakfast nooks are common in Europe, but European flair can easily be brought stateside if you have a table and a couch that is a smaller version of a loveseat. Get a loveseat with a tasteful design and you’ll have a homemade breakfast nook worthy of the haughtiest European. Go with a round table pushed against the couch and fill the remaining space with small chairs. If you can set it up near a long window, ever better!

Kitchen and Dining Room Combination

If you and your family don’t want to go too far from the kitchen action, try combining your kitchen with your dining room. This arrangement not only gives you dinner and a show, it leaves you with a lot more space in your residence. Installing a solid granite countertops from Chicago add a classic touch to a sleek and more modern looking kitchen.

Kitchens in Small Spaces

Don’t have a lot of space in your kitchen? That doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice a modern sense of design. To add some surprising touches to a very small kitchen, outfit the space with retro appliances for a quirky but modern flair. Small kitchens need all the space they can get so add decorative cabinets in another room and leave more space for storing supplies. With a few well-placed antiques, you’ll have a cute and surprising interior to go with a small space.

Dark Colors

Hate your bright white kitchen? Add a splash of dark color to a wall or two for that surprising, refreshing, and unexpected touch. To get the most bang for your buck, paint your kitchen in black, deep drown, copper, or dark red tones. If you really want to stay on trend, paint only one wall, the floor, or the ceiling. This gives your kitchen less of a feeling of confinement, and makes for a cozy baking area.

Black and White

Is the idea of a colored kitchen just a bit much for you? Many interior designers still go with the tried-and-true black and white kitchen for the steely, modern touch. To look their best, modern black and white kitchens need to be kept neat at all times. The sharp sleekness of these clean black and white kitchens are picture perfect for your kitchen and makes for a unique interior design in your most used room.

If these kooky kitchens gave you some interior design ideas, great! Either do some experimenting on your own, or consult an interior designer to create the surprising kitchen of your dreams.
