A vividly colored kitchen in a closet couldn’t look hipper or more modern.
Anyone can make a huge kitchen look great. After all, you’ve got scale going for you. But when creating a workable kitchen in a truly tiny space, it’s hard to beat the look of this kitchen in a closet designed to literally disappear behind folding doors. Trouble is, it’s so stunning when the doors are open it seems a shame to close it off.
Years ago, this type of compact arrangement was labeled an “efficiency” kitchen — indeed apartments took the same label when there was no kitchen in a separate room. Today, they are called “summer” kitchens. I don’t know where that term originated but essentially it means there is no oven.
Designed by the Spanish firm, Logos, as the focal point in an open-plan apartment for a single woman, the kitchen is doubly minimal. Stylistically, surfaces are completely flat and reflective, appliances integral and the color effectively serves as surface decoration. A kitchen with lipstick red and juice orange cabinets is not for the timid. That type of bold color makes a strong statement and works very hard for its size.
Appliances include a paneled dishwasher, which works for entertaining. The stainless steel sink and electronic cooktop [top] conform to the minimalist aesthetic as does the built-in recirculating vent hood which is so low profile it can barely be spotted under the cabinet.
An undercounter refrigerator is also built-in behind a panel and located on the end — a standard placement. Despite its size, this is a formidable kitchen – one that’s memorable for its color, its quality and undeniable visual style.
