A kitchen like this would suit Virgos’ character well. The details of this kitchen are simple and utilitarian. The visual clutter of door handles don’t appeal to Virgos so push-close doors and drawers are a perfect choice for kitchen cabinets. The purity and simplicity of a pale colour palette creates an atmosphere of spaciousness. While for some this might be a bit clinical, Virgos love the cleanliness of this look. It’s not surprising that many Virgos work in the health industry and appreciate a meticulous workspace.
