Who knew that ultra-affordable kitchens could look so good? Conventional cabinetry is undeniably beautiful, and Eastern White Pine is an ideal material to work with, not only because of its malleability and natural beauty, but because it costs less than many other varieties of wood. But you can go even more budget-friendly with pine plywood, without losing any style points. In fact, raw plywood plays a big role in minimalist modern interior design, favored for its Scandinavian-style simplicity.
Flinders Lane Apartment by Clare Cousins
We love the way the pine floors of this London apartment seem to extend right up the faces of the cabinets thanks to their pine plywood faces. Clare Cousins Architects left all of the wood in this home in its natural state to emphasize its textural patterns and encourage visual cohesion.
Maison Renovation by M-Architecture
M-Architecture renovated this old apartment in Brussels, opening up its facade with generous installations of glass, flooding the interiors with natural light. The smooth pine plywood cabinets in the tranquilly simple kitchen add to the brightening effect.
Compact Budapest Apartment
The use of a wall-sized pine pegboard in this ultra-tiny apartment in Budapest is a clever choice, providing modular, customizable storage and display options in a space where every inch counts.
