One wall kitchen designs are often found in smaller homes, apartments and lofts. A one wall or single line kitchen keeps all the cabinets, appliances against one wall of the home to save space. This design can actually be very efficient due to the countertops proximity to appliances and the sink. A common setup is to have the sink positioned between the refrigerator and the range creating an effective zone for cleanup. The style is so popular that many new construction homes with open floor plans are using one wall kitchen designs with an island for additional counter space.
The black and white one-wall kitchen design in the picture above employs a clean, uncluttered ambiance that is really brought out by the choice of materials and forms. Clean-cut straight lines and edges adorn the space with the black and white checkered vinyl tile flooring, the industrial pipe drawer handles, the large farmhouse sink with the wrought-iron faucet, and the french window aesthetic for the glass overhead cabinets.
This single wall kitchen design uses saturated olive green cabinets to balance out the tans and the beige color of the randomly sized and arranged floor tiles. The kitchen offers a bright environment, thanks to the warm texture and aesthetic of the wood beams, unique hanging pendant light over the dining area, and the light wood color tabletop of the dining table. Hints of white can also be seen on the white marble of the kitchen counter and breakfast bar as well as the french doors and transom windows. The open layout of the space also really lets the room breathe and enjoy the natural light from the large doors.
This cottage kitchen has plenty of different white shaker cabinets that adorn the kitchen’s wall. In partner with that, we have the gray marble back splash as well as the gray marble kitchen counter. The walls seen in the rest of the room are segmented and white – this really keeps the room feeling intimate and personal yet still open and inviting.
More contemporary modern design is more than generous with its use of clean-cut forms, continuous smooth surfaces, and very clean-looking materials and finishes. Here we have a stylish and polished dark wood cabinet that also serves as the kitchen’s accent wall. The one-wall kitchen also has engineered wooden plank flooring, white ceilings and walls, and a white center kitchen island with an attached wooden breakfast bar counter top.
The grayish blue tones of the drawers, cabinets, and overheard cabinets of this one-wall kitchen design really melds amazingly well with the neutrals of the space – namely, the whites of the walls and ceilings as well as the different shades of tan brown of the wooden board flooring. This wooden motif is carried out on the kitchen island’s counter tops and under shelves as well; the rest of the island is a strikingly pristine white. In this view, you can already see how spacious the room is with its open layout and design.
Contemporary looks aren’t limited to modernist stylings, which can often be thought to be difficult to personalize without jeopardizing the integrity of the design. In this example, a modern-day home uses contemporary design styles coupled with more personalized elements to create a wonderful kitchen space. The white cabinets give the walls a clean and organized look, the wood floors and the wooden dining table give some nice dark splashes as well as warmth in the room. The unique dining table chandelier as well as the flower vase really adds some character to the room.
This modern-day cabin type design uses a sloped exposed plywood ceiling and timber rafter system to really keep the space feeling rustic and charming. The window seat makes for a cozy little nook to break one’s fast in or just to spend a quiet meal with another person. The black and white checkered tiles are a nice, retro touch and really adds to the charm of the place. The narrow portable kitchen island is a smart idea in making the space flexible and versatile.
Solid blacks are used in the cabinets and drawers of this contemporary kitchen. Its one wall is adorned by mill work and cabinetry work that are clean, sleek, and stylish in their aesthetic. The Arctic white quartz counter tops are an amazing addition and choice to the space. The designer went with a more minimalist and clean look and it turned out amazingly well. As a touch of warmth and creativity, the floor of the kitchen is teak wood planks and have varying degrees of brown, which adds even more charm.
Green flat room design painting, when executed correctly, has a success rate that is difficult to ignore. As an example of how well it works, we see in this picture olive green flat panel cabinets that mellow out the wooden kitchen counter top, the similarly green and white floor tiles, as well as the white glass overhead cabinets of the kitchen.
This one-wall kitchen uses carefully crafted wooden intricacies on the raised panel cabinetry, drawers, and surrounds. It also cleverly uses beautiful African Ivory granite on the main kitchen counter. The back splashes used here are diagonally-set square tiles and go extremely well with the rich brown of the previously discussed wooden cabinetry.
An eclectic piece of bold interior design, this pink one-wall kitchen exudes an undeniably charm and style that very few other kitchen designs can pull off. With its different tones of rose and pink seen on the retro-style drawers and cabinets as well as the stainless steel kitchen counter top, this mid-century modern space seeks to make anyone who uses it feel even just a little bit happy just by being there.
Can there be any more perfect a setting to employ a Mediterranean style of kitchen design than in the middle of a city, in an apartment in a high rise building? The contrast of the urban sprawl of the city and the warm, stone-clad finishes of the Mediterranean kitchen makes it feel like an oasis in a see of gray. The materials used in this kitchen are dark, rich shades of brown wood seen on the cabinetry and the moldings, generous amounts of rough and raw white stone wall finishes, and thunder wave granite used on the counter tops as well as the floor.
The large and long floor area of this room is used to it fullest potential with the utilization of a single-wall kitchen layout. This contemporary kitchen also uses very clean and modern design elements such as the dark wood board floor, the industrial look of the raw concrete wall, and nice and clean neutral patterns in the marble-clad island and back splash.
The white shaker cabinets of this rustic and homey example go exceedingly well with the quaint and simple stainless steel kitchen appliances, the industrial looking farmhouse style kitchen sink, the polished hardwood floors, and the sleek Arabian Black granite used as a counter top.
Rustic style is far from being out of style as seen in this stylish and modern one-wall kitchen. The raw grains and textures of the wood used on the cabinets and drawers can be very well seen through the varnish applied to them. The frosted glass door cabinetry applied to the overhead cabinet panels give you useful views of the stored plates and mugs while keeping the area feel open as well.
Clean and modern looks can also be achieved using mid-century modern styling. Minimalism was the main driving style and motif for this open-planned kitchen layout. The island as well as the main kitchen wall both use cabinetry that are flushed, lacking in handles, and made from beautiful tan spruce wood. The legs of the white leather bar seats for the breakfast bar also follow suit. Aside from the rich beiges and browns, clean whites are seen on the ceilings, walls, seat upholstery, and counter tops.
As a sort of homage to the brick oven kitchens of yore, this kitchen design screams rustic, warm, and homey. The stacked brick surround, walls, and curved arch are wonderfully raw and sincere. The marble backsplash is a nice contrast and makes for a good accent wall. Additionally, we have white panel cabinets and orange weathered floor tiles that complete this space. One wall kitchen designs that don’t have a lot of room can benefit from textures to add depth of perspective.
Gray weathered wood is the first thing that catches your attention in this kitchen design. The wood used for the cabinets and drawers almost seem like they were repurposed – their raw and weathered look give them a lot of character and visual weight. The large Viking brand range used is also a good choice for a kitchen such as this one. Speckled black solid surface was used as a counter top, and it is pleasantly complemented by the white limestone tile back splash used for the back wall.
This modern kitchen used a good amount of black with hints of warm orange glows to really define itself as a unique space. This single-wall layout employs a kitchen island for extra counter space without sacrificing your mobility in the room. The smooth and clean look of the black goes well with the white of the ceiling as well as the white curtains of the sliding glass doors to the side.
A more traditional take on kitchen design, this one-wall kitchen uses dark wood cabinets with intricate panel carvings and edges. The Mokoro granite used on the counter tops go well with the randomly patterned limestone back splash tiles used. A good amount of under-mounted counter lighting was also used to really illuminate the workspace of the kitchen as well as to also showcase the beautiful finishing materials used for the counter.
Another classic design of a single-line kitchen can be seen in this example. The Corian white solid surface counter matches the white-painted drawers, cabinets, and overhead cabinets. Almost all design elements in the room are white – the cabinetry and mill work, the counter top, the walls, the ceiling – but the sole source of color, the Pecan engineered wood floors, really gives this place some much appreciated warmth.
Although not as spacious as some of the previous examples, this traditional kitchen design can still be called effective, stylish, and an amazing piece of design. The dark cabinetry really sets the tone of the whole kitchen, which is furthered by the solid-surface counter top, “mixed media” tiling of the kitchen back splash, and the beautiful wood vinyl plank tiles for the floor.
Another example of traditional one-wall kitchen designs, here we have a proper kitchen island that doubles as a breakfast bar. The counter top used was a speckled gray and black solid surface material. The cabinetry is all made of rich, stained oak wood. The floor planks are of a lighter teak wood finish.
The glass door white cabinets really make this semi-cramped kitchen design feel all the more spacious and comfortable. The white cabinets go exceedingly well with the speckled brown counter top, the mosaic tile back splashes, and the differently-colored floor tiles used. Building an archway between the kitchen and the adjacent room was a good decision on the designer’s part since it really frames the whole kitchen space really well.
One wall kitchen designs with high ceilings can play with colors and textures to make the room appear larger. This modern single line kitchen has an unusually large ceiling space. Not only does this make the room all the more comfortable and roomy, it also disperses heat, stench, and other things quite well. The island and the kitchen counter proper both use the same type of speckled solid surface. They go well with the sleek black cabinetry used for the kitchen counter. The kitchen island designed is also peculiar in such that it stands on slender legs instead of a built-up wall; this is useful so that the people sitting on the breakfast bar area will have much leg room to work with.
