The kitchen appliances disappear into this custom art wall, which adds vibrant color and energy to the non-traditional kitchen. The wall is clad in reclaimed barn wood, and artist Rob Stenberg painted the design on the panels. Touch-latch cabinetry keeps the wall looking more like an art installation than kitchen cabinetry. A custom hemlock block island looks time worn and was fabricated by the homeowner.
This light and bright kitchen features dark brown wooden Shaker cabinets paired with white quartz countertops and a soft gray backsplash. Stainless steel appliances add a modern touch, while red flowers and countertop containers provide a pop of color.
This imaginative contemporary kitchen, designed by Rhonda Knoche, uses thin curved metal strips to accent the cabinets, door, even the kitchen island. Hints of rust red warm up the predominantly gray palatte.
Not for the faint at heart, this eclectic kitchen designed by John Ryba is saturated in a rich, red lacquer. The white ceiling and stainless-steel appliances help reflect light, an important design element when working with a bold color.
This kitchen sink has a view of the distinct built-in living room shelving. An open wood bar counter connects the two spaces and adds visual interest to this vignette. Yellow and red patterned backsplash adds a pop of color to this otherwise neutral space, connecting it to the red wall and rich wood shelving in the living room. An intricate detailed entertainment center filled with interesting wood and earthy accessories provides the focal point for the living space and the view from the kitchen sink.
In just one week, this eat-in kitchen is reborn as a sleek and vibrant place to prep and serve food in style. To stay on budget, the room's footprint is kept as is, while the existing cabinets are sanded, primed and updated with high-gloss, cranberry-red paint.
This transitional kitchen features rich reds and warm earth tones. A vinyl floor anchors the space while the glass tile wall adds an interesting natural element, accompanied by frosted glass cabinets and deep wood floor cabinetry.
Three rooms were combined in this cottage to create one big, bold kitchen. The original sink, which was the only salvaged item from the original kitchen, serves as the inspiration for the bright-red color scheme.
In the kitchen, steel and glass upper cabinets disappear into an interior window, which allows as much light as possible into the kitchen and provide a spot to display art and dishes. Custom hardware adorns the lower cabinets and showcase a logo created just for the homeowners. Quarter-inch strips of glass were fused together to create the floating upper island top and are supported by steel hidden within the cabinets.
The kitchen was made wide enough to accommodate two cooks and passers-through. Period-authentic light fixtures and fir flooring, to match the original flooring, were chosen to make the addition blend seamlessly with the original house.
A stone bar with stools adjacent to the outdoor cooking area ensures that guests will be able to eat food fresh off the grill, and that the cook won't miss out on the party. A pergola offers shade during the day and overhead lighting at night.
Kitchens serve as not only a place to prepare meals, but also a main gathering space in the home. Look through these pictures for great kitchen design ideas and be inspired to create a new look for your kitchen.
