Rather than having a distinct cooking space, the non-kitchen resembles more of a living space that you also just so happen to prepare food in. With concealed appliances, no hardware and adding in warm accessories, the non-kitchen creates a non-traditional, sleek kitchen space that simply extends from a living area.
CONCEAL THE APPLIANCES
Appliances can be beautiful and are usually used as a kitchen’s focal point but when concealed with paneling, it creates a sleek and minimalist look.
LOSE THE HARDWARE
Another way to make the kitchen much less kitchen-like is to lose the hardware on the cabinets and drawers. Options like hidden pulls and push-to-open mechanisms, help to further blur the line between a living and kitchen space.
ADD ART AND ACCESSORIES
Be sure to incorporate some art and decorative accessories. Decor such as artwork, rugs and modern light fixtures can give the space more of a warm and interesting touch.
