Attic apartments vary in size and shape as much as any regular house but the one thing that they all have in common is the slanted ceiling. This can restrict the planning of solid wood attic kitchens and make them tricky to design. So, to help you out we have scoured the internet to bring you three of the most inspirational solid wood attic kitchens to give you some ideas for yours.
Sleek Monochrome Attic Kitchen
This first example of an attic kitchen comes from SHOKO.design. The space is quite small but through the use of white walls, ceiling and floor, light from the roof window is reflected back into the room, giving the illusion of more space. This makes using black Shaker doors more appropriate, because in a darker room this could become too oppressive. To complement the cabinets and to add continuity to the kitchen, several accessories in various dark hues have been included such as the lamp, grey carpet and picture on the wall. The beautiful combination of the white ceramic sink and oak worktop adds a classic charm whilst the pull handles further add to the contemporary look. From a practical aspect, the electric hob has been positioned directly under the window for ventilation purposes.
U-Shaped Attic Kitchen with Island
Although attic kitchens can be quite small, this does not always have to be the case, as this example proves. With an island surrounded by a U-shaped layout, there is ample worktop and storage space. Similar to the previous kitchen, white has been used on the walls, floor and ceiling to maximise the light from the skylights. Although there are several rustic features, such as the end panel on the island, this space maintains a modern feel, mainly due to the Shaker doors being painted in a contemporary grey colour.
Small Yet Beautiful
Although this last attic kitchen is completely different from the other two contemporary kitchens, it is no less beautiful. This bijou design is packed full of traditional charm, from the weathered dining table right down to the chequered wall tiles. Due to the constraints of space, a restricted colour palette is particularly important – anything too bold would overpower the design, so where colour is used it tends to be muted or neutral.
