96 Kitchen Concrete Floors Drop In Sinks Design Photos And Ideas

The open kitchen is bright and airy thanks to double-height ceilings, a wall of windows, and classic post-and-beam construction.
The kitchen has been designed such that it feels warm and homely and the usual daily utility clutter has been kept out of sight.
The abundance of white and gray surfaces and uninterrupted lines gives the kitchen a serene feel, which is enhanced by the views of the unspoiled countryside through the glazed doors. There is no shortage of worktop space, thanks to its C-shape design and large central island.
The layout's square plan offered few windows, so the designers treated the roof (concealed 12" beneath a parapet) as a fifth facade, inserting 10 operable skylights and a hatch for natural light, ventilation, and roof access.
Instead of clearing out the building and designing the interior from scratch, the designers Davidson and Rafailidis reinterpreted the existing space.
Space is maximized in the kitchen thanks to the functional boxes; the fridge and additional storage are built into the bathroom volume on the left.
"The box was softened with a thin frame of floating concrete floor, along with a very thin roof rack on top, and joined together by diagonal side walls," explains Tal Goldsmith Fish, the firm's founder.
The open interior of white walls and polished concrete floors echoes the restrained aesthetics of the façade.
The concrete countertops, walls, and staircase echo the home's refined modern design aesthetic.
The kitchen's overhead cabinets have been built from solid timber recycled from re-milled Messmate hardwood floorboards.
The centrally located kitchen volume is faced with high-gloss lacquered panels and features a yellow tile backsplash with black artificial stone countertops.
Kitchen & Dining
SHED Architecture & Design does not believe in blindly following trends, preferring to allow light and space, economical and sustainable materials, and well-considered details guide their work. For the remodel of this loft-style apartment in the award-winning, industrial-style 1310 East Union Building on Capitol Hill, SHED worked with contractor Dolan Built LCC. They used an industrial-influenced material palette to complement the development’s edgy facade.
Large windows and floor-to-ceiling sliding doors have been integrated into the living space, providing an abundance of natural light, as well as easy access to the outdoor garden space.
The renovation features a pulpit-like mezzanine that overlooks the main living space. This new cantilevered structure creates a focused central nucleus for the home.
Containing the kitchen, office, library, and plant room, the building can be seen as a form of a pulpit, a place to foster the owner’s life and work. A birch plywood skin wraps the mezzanine structure, linking spaces and functions.
The contemporary guest kitchen has been designed and built by Danish brand VIPP.
Internal brick walls and polished concrete surfaces provide thermal mass that helps to keep the interior spaces cool.
On either side of the dining area, two sets of large sliding doors connect the house to the garden.
The kitchen and dining areas serve as the heart of the home and connect to a small greenhouse via stairs.
On the bathroom side of the sink, there's a vanity mirror.
The centrally located sink does double duty. On the kitchen side, a suspended chalkboard for notes hovers above it. Similar tile in the kitchen backsplash and shower creates continuity. Note the tiny cooktop with integrated, exposed venting above it, which syncs with the industrial concrete on the floor and ceiling.
The open kitchen has a warm Mediterranean-like feel and overlooks the central garden.
The notion of an integrated indoor/outdoor experience runs counter to the plan of a traditional Queensland worker's cottage, where the living areas often sit alongside an external deck.
The rustic cabinetry was built by a family friend and is topped with pine slabs. "We kept all the imperfections, chainsaw markings and undulations in the live edge," says Kenny.
The taraxacum suspended lights are by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. The stools are by Fritz Baumann.
Plywood cabinetry and ceiling panels combine with white walls in a clean kitchen setting. A Modernica Nelson Bubble Lamp hangs above the dining table.
The inclined, faceted ceiling, light cannon in the ceramic studio, and vertical veils give the interiors a sculptural quality.
"The geometries converse with the impressive body of the existing farm, at the same time making their mark in the natural surroundings," notes Cécile Combelle, co-founder of the firm.
The bedrooms and the bathroom are located within the fold of the V-shaped section, and are separated from the common area by a dividing wall.
The interior design is very much part of the home’s identity, with some of the furniture built into the property and designed by the artist-homeowner himself to reflect and complement the surrounding landscape.
An island provides additional seating for meals.
The sink was relocated for functionality, and new windows above it were installed so the owner can look out over the garden while doing dishes. The perimeter counters are composed of custom-made 15-ply birch with oak butcher block-style veneer, while the island is topped with Caesarstone. A new bar area with two under-counter fridges and a pop-up TV replaced a pony wall from the '70s.
The open plan kitchen flows seamlessly into the living area.
In the open kitchen, wood-paneled sliding doors conceal dark cabinetry, and together with a sleek, dark counter, and a shiny bronze-clad island with a sink, the kitchen becomes part of the overall design rather than simply an area of utility.
The open kitchen blends in with sleek, wood cabinetry and black countertops.
An elegant palette of materials defines the open kitchen. The rear counter is sanded stainless steel; the island counter is Purpleheart (an exotic hardwood) with a range by Dacor.
Clerestory windows and skylights have also been added to the roof and façade to bring more light into the cavernous interiors.
A sturdy concrete countertop curves around the entire length of the kitchen, finished in a texture Webster describes as “bug splattered.” Despite the unappetizing name, it works well for rolling out dough. Its circular motif reappears in the custom cabinets’ finger pulls, which also help ventilate the cupboards. The fixtures are from Kubus and the appliances are from Miele.
The kitchen appliances are by Mora and the sink is by Franke.
Cantilever Interiors designed and built the kitchen, which features ECO by Consentino kitchen countertops.
The kitchen features exposed Vic Ash Glulam beams sourced from Australian Sustainable Hardwoods.
A kitchen, complete with a small dining area, allows guests to reverse roles and host the hosts. The blue Muuto Unfold light accents against the otherwise black and white space; the chairs are Hay Copenhague bar stools.
The fully stocked kitchen can be found in the Clubhouse.
The minimalist interiors showcase the simple material palette.

The building is kept low to the ground, so you can step directly from the house into the garden.

A look back towards the stairwell and entry. The wood ceiling adds warmth to the black and white scheme.
The entry segues into the open kitchen and living space. The second-floor mezzanine was once enclosed. By removing its walls, the architects brought in more light and a better connection to the outdoors.
An additional kitchen has been placed in the loft for added convenience.
Light enters the kitchen from the courtyard through one of the glass doors.
