The three compositions below epitomize the classic appeal of the single-wall kitchen and yet each one has a style of its own. The first tends to combine farmhouse aesthetics and warmth of wood with appliances and counters in white. The second presents a completely contrasting picture with its dark, modern appeal and the last kitchen leans heavily towards an industrial look enhanced by brick and metal. Yet all the three kitchens blend ergonomics of the one-wall kitchen with their respective styles in a fluid and fascinating manner.

Integrating effortlessly with the rest of the home, this unassuming backdrop lets you work with endless possibilities.
