This contemporary kitchen features an extended countertop for added seating and easier food prep. White upper cabinets, countertops and backsplash give the space a clean, modern look. Under-cabinet lighting, as well as ambient lighting and an industrial pendant light illuminate the space.
In this townhouse renovation, a more efficient kitchen with updated appliances and wider work surfaces was a
must. A Spanish-style tile backsplash does the double trick of punching up the white cabinets and making the ceiling feel even higher.
To counter the limited square footage in this home, designers combined the kitchen, breakfast nook and dining room into one larger, easy-flow space. Upper cabinets are accessed by a fun library ladder. The dining table is hand-crafted out of live-edge spalted elm.
Even though the kitchen is mostly white, Darnell adds interest through different textures. The backsplash is a trellis design, while white bead board is installed on the walls. The space is made family friendly by having the breakfast area open up to the kitchen.
Exposed wood beams highlight the elongated look of this spacious kitchen and compliment the natural wood finish of the cabinet. A large island provides polished counter space for working and eating. Leather bar chairs blend with the calm color scheme and cool, contemporary style. Large black pendant lights hang over the island adding a heavier element against the airy, while walls.
White walls, cabinetry and countertops capture the bright, natural light of the room making this sunny kitchen the perfect compliment to a farmhouse home. A blue island brings in a comforting color accent and creates an attractive backdrop behind natural wood bar stools.
This small kitchen uses a retro black mini fridge, a small fitted stove and a combination of cabinets and open shelving to be fully functional without feeling claustrophobic. Natural light floods in from the window and bounces off the bright white walls, ceiling and marble countertop. Bowls of fruit and a collection of fresh flowers bring natural color to the room.
The owners bring this kitchen into the 21st century by simply painting the cabinets, replacing the track lighting with a pretty pendant lamp, replacing the hardware and bringing in stainless steel appliances (bought off Craigslist).
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.
