I’m a tornadic chef. (I shouldn’t even call myself a chef.) I use every inch of counter space, several dishes and cutlery, spill spices everywhere and generally need to mop afterwards. My current home lacks in cooking space (I’m working on that problem). So, what I love about modern kitchens is their simple and minimalist approach to a hard-working space. They look and feel like they’re meant to be cooked in. Some rooms look like they shouldn’t be touched, kind of like that “formal living room” at the front of the house that you dust every few weeks but never actually acknowledge otherwise. Your kitchen definitely shouldn’t be that room. I feel like I could go to work on delicious baked goods in one of these designer kitchens, completely destroy it with flour and powdered sugar, then simply swipe it back to its sleek self. Modern kitchens always feel modeled after professional culinary spaces with crisp stainless steel, pendant lighting and an open floorplan, making it ready to work. Do you like the feel of a modern cooking space in your home, or do you prefer a warmer, more traditional kitchen to make your daily meals? Tell us in the comments below.
