Mid Century Modern in LincolnMidcentury Kitchen, Boston
This remodel of a mid century gem is located in the town of Lincoln, MA a hot bed of modernist homes inspired by Gropius’ own house built nearby in the 1940’s. By the time the house was built, modernism had evolved from the Gropius era, to incorporate the rural vibe of Lincoln with spectacular exposed wooden beams and deep overhangs.
The design rejects the traditional New England house with its enclosing wall and inward posture. The low pitched roofs, open floor plan, and large windows openings connect the house to nature to make the most of its rural setting.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Depending on your counter material, an angled top can be a large extra expense — for example, when using a prefab rectangular counter slab in stone or butcher block. Or it can eat up too much precious floor space or not fit well around an island. But this drawer option allows you to keep your counter to a basic L-shape while still getting handy drawer space.
6. Incorporate space-savvy storage. A shortage in storage is a problem usually associated with small kitchens. However, this obstacle can be overcome by incorporating clever, space-maximizing storage solutions in your cooking zone — think corner drawers, appliance garages, pullout vertical pantries, drawer organizers and corner systems. Doing so will ensure that everything has a place to call home in your kitchen, cutting unnecessary clutter and visual bulk and making the area more effective to work in.12 Great Ideas for Organization in the Kitchen
14. Appliance garage. Park your countertop appliances away and out of sight with an appliance garage. Typically set at countertop level, these cabinets allow you to keep your small appliances plugged in and at the ready, all while tucked neatly behind closed doors. Rts27959 is a fan of them, as is Jon Curtis, who refers to them as “tidiness controllers.” He advises: “Assess your counter space carefully and determine just how many of those appliances need to be out on the counter.” When sizing your appliance garage, think about the appliances you want to store behind closed doors on the counter — such as heavy and bulky stand mixers. Be sure to include an outlet in the cabinet so you can keep the appliance plugged in. Then simply slide it out when needed. See more on appliance garages
