This kitchen feels very light and sunny, but in a twist from the often seen all-white kitchen, this one layers neutrals like the soft tan walls, woven shades, brown tile backsplash and hardwood floors.
Storage isn't a problem in this kitchen. Glass-front upper cabinets, open shelving and a full-size pantry opposite the Sub-Zero fridge offer style and storage. Contemporary track lighting against a paneled ceiling draw the eye upward in the narrow space.
Brown wood cabinets with spare ornamentation provide a foundation for this craftsman-inspired kitchen. A neutral tile backsplash, painted cabinetry and a kitchen island balances the weighty feel of the heavy cabinets.
The large rustic island centers this farmhouse kitchen and provides extra storage and prep space. An open shelf in the island keeps favorite cookbooks handy, while a pair of pendant lights illuminates the pretty white countertops.
Kitchen With Wood Cabinets and Neutral Tile Backsplash
A neutral tile backsplash complements the wood grain of the brown cabinets. Smooth white countertops provide contrast to the dark cabinets and brighten the space, which leads to a colorful adjacent dining room.
Open, Contemporary Kitchen Brings in Rustic Elements
Skylights bring in natural light overhead in this rustic meets contemporary kitchen. Exposed wood beams pop off the crisp white ceiling, and the sleek yet warm color palette continues below in warm cabinets and clean countertops.
Brown and Green Modern Kitchen With Green Backsplash
Slotted in between gorgeous walnut cabinets, the bright green glass tile backsplash wakes up this tasteful kitchen. The white countertops are a subtle pairing that doesn't compete with the vibrant color.
Rectangular tiles for the backsplash are laid vertically, creating height between countertops and open shelves. Warm woods contrast against the bright white walls and backsplash for a Scandinavian-inspired kitchen.
Large Island Provides Generous Storage for Open Kitchen
As seen on HGTV's America's Most Desperate Kitchens, designers were able to open up the floor plan to create a larger kitchen space and to add a large island with integrated range and a generous amount of storage space. A pass through window was closed off to convert the old dining room into a bar area with additional storage.
Soft Yellow Open Plan Kitchen With Nearby Dining Area
This kitchen features a yellow accent wall and brown wooden cabinets. Blue pendant lights hang above the kitchen island, while the nearby dining area boasts a wooden table. Exposed beam ceilings throughout and countertop succulent plants add a Southwestern feel.
