10 minimalist kitchens with grey units

7 minimalist kitchens with grey units

Now that we’ve sold our holiday home in the Bay of Arcachon to my best friend (which is the cherry on the cake since I get to see more of her), we are starting to plan our #bodieandfourenovations to modernise our other home in France. One thing we are looking at revamping is our Ikea kitchen which I have to admit has not aged. Ten years on and the units are still looking very white and have not faded despite the huge amount of natural light filling the room. However, what has changed is our cooking habits (well mine mostly…). I started cooking which made me realise that there is actually not enough workspace to prepare the food when the two of us are in the kitchen + Steve finds it very antisocial to have his back turned to our guests when he is cooking. Added to the obvious lack of storage, there is quite a few things we could make right the second time around.

The kitchen however, is where I like to hang out. Having an open-plan dining/kitchen in our home in France and no home office yet, these days I work a lot from our dining table, staring at our white kitchen and incidentally, making plans on how I could improve it. Following my last post on plywood kitchens, today I wanted to show you a few examples of white, contemporary kitchens with concrete floor which I find really beautiful and soothing. All of them have interesting details we can bookmark for future references and are spaces I would be quite happy to work from…

Besides its eco-friendly properties, plywood or wood from sustainable forests are a great alternative to re-design your kitchen on a budget. Personally, I’m a huge fan of this material which we used at home in Steve’s tree house. I love the warmth and the Scandinavian vibes, wood adds to the room and if you’re not convinced, let me show you 12 examples of modern kitchens re-designed with plywood. READ ON…
