We've noticed a curious trend of disappearing appliances, planar sinks, and subdued surfaces. Just like the flat design that is becoming popular in technology interfaces, this kitchen is excess-free and pared back to the essentials.
Modex by Blanco, $1,750Rising only three inches above the countertop, the Red Dot Award–winning Modex features an integrated drainboard. The engineered material, which is 80 percent granite, is scratch- and stain-resistant.
Drawer Microwave by Wolf, $1,825
Available in 24- and 30-inch sizes, the microwave has ten power levels and its spacious drawer can accommodate nine-by 13-inch casseroles.
800 Plus Series Dishwasher by Bosch, $1,299
A recessed handle helps the stainless-steel appliance maintain a low profile, while three internal racks offer more cleaning capacity. At 42 decibels when running, the 800 series is also among the quietest dishwashers around.
Signature Series 24- Inch Dual-Zone Wine Reserve by Perlick, $3,399–$3,749
The Milwaukee-made stainless-steel chiller features two separate temperature zones and can hold 46 bottles of wine. It’s approved for indoor or outdoor use and fits beneath most counters.

Six-burner Cooktop by Jenn-Air, $1,499
With its very low profile, the gas cooktop all but blends in with counters. It features high-heat burners that reach 18,000 BTUs and a simmer burner that goes as low as 800 BTUs.
