Conceived by Martin Steininger of Vienna-based Steininger Design, these unusual concrete kitchens are as quirky as they are cool. While you might not typically consider concrete as the material of choice in your kitchen makeover, it’s a great choice for a number of reasons such as its heat resistance and hygiene qualities, not to mention its sleek its aesthetics. These kitchens are made using ultra-thin 8mm concrete that delivers on the durability and style side of things alike. Pair this versatile concrete island with wood for a contemporary yet rustic look, or go the ultra-modern route with a chic stainless steel. .
