While there certainly was a time when the home kitchen was seen as the domain of women, that's far from the case today. From self-sufficient bachelors to egalitarian couples to wannabe celebrity chefs, more men than ever are cooking for themselves and for their loved ones. Of course, not many of these men want their kitchens covered in pictures of kittens in chef's hats or even the bright, spastic yellows or quaint ginghams of "country chic" and designers are catching on. These modern kitchens are sleek and ready for any style-conscious man to get to work.
