Traditional Kitchen With Unique Kitchen Island
In this traditional kitchen, which has grey cabinets, a wood kitchen island features a marble tabletop that extends 50% longer than the table itself, not only providing ample space to serve a meal, but also enough space to plate food to be served.
The 6-burner, commercial-style cooktop is the ideal spot to cook up a hearty breakfast — there's even a griddle for assembly-line flapjacks. Double ovens offer ample space to prepare meals for a crowd, and Shaker-style cabinetry in a black finish provides a quiet backdrop for the room's more dramatic fixtures.
Modern Kitchen With Wall Wine Rack and Shark Skelton Decor
This spacious kitchen features an industrial vibe with painted exposed pipes and a wall to wall wine rack made from terra cotta pipes. Oversized white subway tiles create a countertop-to-ceiling backsplash, while light oak floors cover the floor. A shark skeleton floating over the dining table adds a funky vibe.
Pops of red stand out against the black penny-round tile wall in this contemporary kitchen. To add architectural interest to any kitchen, carry the same tile used on the backsplash up onto the rest of the walls.
This rental kitchen has sunlight flooding in, so HGTV Design Star contestant Jordan Cappella went with a dark, monochromatic gray paint for the cabinets to create a huge impact. It can easily be painted back to white when the tenant leaves.
