30 Beautiful Design Ideas for a Masculine Kitchen (1)

Every single person needs a home where they can relax, unwind, have fun, live and cook at their ease. Male interiors are generally dark, but not depressing. It can be said that the dark colors used have a calming effect. You can play with textures to bring a striking touch and of course, the furniture and decorative accessories are there to create a defined atmosphere.

Male kitchens are one of the major trends at the moment because, in fact, kitchens dressed in dark colors are too. Today, we are going to focus on men’s kitchen designs. The elements that we will take a closer look are the cupboards, the island and the stools as well as the lamps. Of course, appliances and various accessories also have an impact on the atmosphere in the room, but we will mainly focus on furniture through this post.

1. Kitchen cupboards

Kitchen cupboards (1)

Storage cupboards are one of the basic elements in a kitchen. In most cases, they represent the focal point. They create the atmosphere and can bring about a big change. Therefore, the choice of your kitchen cupboards will define the design of your kitchen. It is therefore important to make your choice.

The brown or black colored wooden cupboards with a smooth, elegant appearance and which do not have handles as well as the black metal cupboards are perfect for a masculine and modern kitchen.

If you find dark colored cabinets too dull, then opt for a lighter colored wood model that you accompany with a black tile backsplash. It is also feasible to go for other colors like teal, dark gray and brown. You can also create a nice contrast with the help of the backsplash and the counter, for example with black marble, white stones and red bricks.

2. Kitchen islands and stools

The kitchen island is not just a surface for preparing meals. You can also have breakfast there, mainly if you live alone and have the first meal of the day quickly. The kitchen island can be a beautiful element in the decor if the material chosen is interesting and if you adopt a captivating geometric shape. The material of the kitchen island can be a way to add texture to the kitchen.

The stone or concrete counter is especially durable but it would also be interesting to have a black wood island to match the cupboards. A marble countertop will make your culinary space a masculine, elegant and luxurious kitchen. If the wood is already present enough in the decor, you could opt for a metal counter.

Either way, pretty stools will help you impose the masculine side and accentuate the decor style you have chosen. The stools can be made of metal, covered in ocher-colored leather or upholstered for more comfort.

26. Sobriety and minimalism for a kitchen with masculine features

Sobriety and minimalism for a kitchen with masculine features (1)

I had already spoken about it in my last article about the masculine style in the bathroom. One of the flagship criteria of this decorative style is to combine aesthetics with practicality. We therefore find the functionality of minimalism where nothing is left to chance so that the kitchen is practical on a daily basis. We will therefore think about the location of the different poles of the kitchen so that it is practical but not only. The smallest details will have a meaning, that of simplifying your life. If your kitchen seems too dark to you, we will make a point of reflecting the lighting of the room: in general (with a main light) but also in more specific areas (thanks to spots for example) to illuminate the spaces where you spend the most time (sink, worktop …) You will also notice that there are many images of inspirations that present shelves above the worktop. I find them very practical to have at hand the dishes or kitchen accessories that we use every day.

27. Black – a flagship color but sparingly

Black - a flagship color but sparingly (1)

Not all men’s kitchens are black, but we must admit that this color comes up frequently when looking for inspiration. There are many ways to put a touch of black in the kitchen without necessarily repainting the walls that color or choosing black fronts. We can think of lighting, seats (chairs or stools), crockery and kitchen utensils, the kitchen piano, the splashback … Black is no longer a color as taboo as it used to be. It has become an elegant color, practical for highlighting decorative details. Even though I love black, there is one caveat that you absolutely must take into account in the kitchen (and in the bathroom): black and water do not mix.

28. A special choice for bar stools

The choice of seats and therefore bar stools is a small detail that will contribute to your decoration. They will work for the convivial spirit of your space despite the sober shades of colors. Nothing is left to chance when choosing the right stools: the material that makes up the legs, the shape and the covering of the seat, etc. The masculine style leaves you a lot of choices when it comes to this decorative element. Are you more industrial stools? Bar chairs like in English clubs? On the one hand you will have rough formwork stools generally associating wood and metal while on the other side it will be more elegant seats, with leather, quilting and even possibly brass. In any case, it will contribute to the unique atmosphere of your living room.

29. Authentic and noble materials for a masculine kitchen

It is also a theme that can be found in all my articles devoted to male interiors: the importance of materials in your decor. Wood, leather, metal, stone, marble or even brick are of paramount importance in the atmosphere of your home, especially if you opt for a more minimal decoration. What these materials have in common is that they help you create an elegant and authentic interior. We will find noble materials, durable over time such as wood, stone or leather. You can also choose raw materials for a masculine and industrial kitchen.
