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.
This kitchen by designer Mark Dutka in his own home near the Northern California coast was designed to reflect the colors of the local sky, sand and forests. A gorgeous sky blue accent wall gives depth to this small, open-plan modern kitchen. Wood beam ceilings and saltillo tile floors offer a nature-inspired contrast to the metal and gray. Halogen pendant lights suspended from an overhead support above the counter peninsula offer a creative lighting solution.
The wood paneled island and refrigerator surround add a touch of warmth to the cool blue-and-white kitchen. Slate tile ground the space and is mimicked in the island's countertop. Large clear pendant lights and sconces add style to the kitchen without distracting from the lake views through the windows.
Blue and White Cottage Kitchen with Arched Windows
This blue and white country cottage kitchen features white cabinets, white columns, and arched picture windows. A rustic farmhouse table with intricate wood carvings serves as the focal point of the room. A vaulted ceiling extends the space and gives this kitchen an open, airy feel.
Just like the kiss sculptures on the countertop, we embrace the color and style of this Brentwood kitchen designed by Jackson Paige Interiors! The teal backsplash tile makes a grand statement and complements the blue-patterned window treatment without having to use a carbon-copy color. The style of the off-white cabinetry helps to accentuate its subtle coastal design, along with the dark tones of the kitchen island and round bar stools that also add depth to the space.
Light blue cabinets combine with white countertops for a soothing, chic kitchen design. Geometric pendant lights add a contemporary nod, while gold is use for the fixtures and hardware throughout the space for a touch of glam.
A trio of oversized pendant lights make a statement without taking up any visual space in this cottage-inspired kitchen. The expansive kitchen island is designed for the whole family to gather around with industrial-style barstools. Blue trimwork and cabinets reflect the surrounding lake views.
Surprise! Extra counter space, shelf space and a wine refrigerator are tucked in this kitchen's pantry. This strategy is a great way to bring additional functionality to a room without adding clutter to the space. And who doesn't want fewer appliances on a primary countertop?
