Beautiful, Unconventional Kitchen Designs

Historically, the kitchen has always been a place of function, where design first and foremost is meant to be useful and practical. While that doesn't mean the kitchen is relegated to be a boring space, it does make it easier to look at the kitchen as a place with limited style possibilities; especially if you're comparing your kitchen, with its mandatory faucets, appliances and storage, to a blank slate like a living room or bedroom. So what are you to do if your personal style is more unique than white cabinetry and subway tile allow? Luckily, there are actually plenty of ways to customize your kitchen in order to create a space that's unique, personal, and reflective of your taste. In fact, you might be surprised at just how unconventional kitchen design can actually be. For proof, we're sharing some of the most unique, creative, out-of-the box kitchen designs we could find.
