A masculine aesthetic is perhaps one that appeals to a much broader audience than a more feminine one especially if it's combined with industrial touches. As a matter of fact many women, me included, prefer to keep away from the very feminine design, particularly from those with overdoses of fru-fru; aka. looking like a doll house. As most of these masculine kitchens purposely imply, not only dark spaces can evoke a masculine atmosphere; good news for those who prefer light and clear spaces. Chunky wood, metal, concrete, stainless steel, oxidized finishing on either wood or metal are only a few of the many options to keep in mind when going for a masculine kitchen. Enjoy!
