NIGERIA

In the country-side of Nigeria, kitchens are usually like the size of an average pantry. Most times in an average home, they are separate from the main house and situated by the side of the house. For high-end families, they mainly have a bigger-sized kitchen which is inside the house.


A lower class family typically uses aluminum roofing/wood to build their kitchen. An average home might use mud bricks or modern bricks to build the kitchen external from the main house. 


An average kitchen consists of a fireplace, gas cylinder, table, plate rack, food items, farm equipment, water-place, and condiments. Axe, mortar and pestle, cutleries, colander, pots, fry pan, gas cylinder, and hot plate are the most common appliances seen in every kitchen of Nigeria.


 

COLOMBIA

The size, space and colours of the kitchen depend on social class. When we talk of people with money, their kitchens are very spacious. In the middle and lower classes, kitchens are usually smaller than a quarter. 


Generally, Colombian kitchens have a fridge, stove, and cupboard. Many places also have a washing machine installed inside their kitchens. Not everyone has an oven or microwave. But mostly everyone has an odor extractor, blender and an orange juicer. 


The pantries are usually full with a lot of staples. Since Columbians eat a lot of "arepa" in the entire country, so they have flour, an appreciable variety of cheap fruits, chocolate to make hot chocolate and coffee.


 

BRAZIL

A Brazilian style kitchen is inspired by the landscapes and the design ideas of Brazil. The landscape of Brazil is varied and includes jungles, rivers, waterfalls, the coast, and mountains. Brazilian style always aims to bring the outdoors in by using natural materials, colors that reflect the surroundings, and plants. 


The prominent features in a kitchen over here are the units and the countertops. Brazilians choose wooden units, although it doesn’t matter which type or color of wood they are selecting. For retaining the theme of natural materials, Brazilian people consider having carved wooden bowls and vases as display pieces in their kitchens. 


Also, to add some color to the walls, they generally prefer adding a colorful botanical print in a position that will draw the eye across the room.


 

MOROCCO

Bold, vibrant colors are at the heart of Moroccan kitchen design. They prefer minimalistic lines and a clean, neutral color palette, and the Scandinavian style is a better fit over there. 


A wooden kitchen table topped with a pounded metal tray and some wooden appliances added to the existing furniture is a great way of creating the look on a budget according to moroccan citizens, while those with cash to splash try investing in new pieces with intricately carved woodwork and fabulously embellished inlays.


Intricate mosaics, vibrant markets, mysterious spices, stunning textiles, mesmerizing medinas are guaranteed to be undercut with the exotic, the sumptuous, and the colorful in a Moroccan pattern. Moroccan kitchen design also embodies all the vibrancy, dynamism, and intrigue of the country itself, and fortunately, recreates it in their own home as easy as pie.


 

GERMANY

German kitchens come second to none in today’s world of efficient, chic and functional work-spaces. For years and years, German kitchens have perfected their manufacturing to cater to the ever-evolving modern scenario. 


More than aesthetics, German kitchens are all about their purposefulness. It is about how it can be incorporated flawlessly into the minimalist lifestyle. The use of sleek lines, luminescent backgrounds and effortless construction lends the kitchens in Germany a chic look.


A lot of attention is paid to details to achieve this concoction. The people in Germany prefer minimalism over everything, so they are not fond of using a lot of utensils and materials altogether. Rather, they purchase multi-purpose kitchen wares for comfort.


 

NETHERLANDS

The Dutch kitchen design is traditionally set up with two walls of parallel cabinets and worktops. In the efforts of avoiding a closed-in feeling, the Dutch kitchen often then leads to a dining and social area. 


Virtually every Dutch kitchen contains historic details that bring character and customisation to the space. Often positioned quite literally in the centre, the Dutch kitchen is meant to bring people together from around the home. Space, therefore, is at a premium and the Dutch kitchen design style accommodates the small footprint of most houses in its galley layout.


 

ITALY

With its rich, traditional colours, the Italian kitchen style is what some might call ‘worn’, and what others might call ‘warm’. It’s an environment that’s often rather rustic, but not necessarily. Inspired by the region, warm colours infuse every aspect of the style.


And when it comes to design, fluid architecture is a core feature. The end result is a luscious and relaxed look, free from sharp corners and cold materials. In a typical Italian kitchen, even tiles feel as though their sharp edges have softened and their precise corners have been buffed over time to a now rounded point.
