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.
Centered in the expansive kitchen is a large island, which doubles as prep area and a dining spot. Hardwood floors ground the space, while exposed wood beams bring in a rustic quality. The room off the kitchen features a butler's pantry, providing much-needed storage.
Purposeful contrast is created between the finishes from the natural look of reclaimed wood on the island to the traditional gray-green painted finish on the cabinets. The "area rug" runner is actually porcelain tile made to look like a rug. The 3'x8' pattern runs the length of the island, with each tile having a distinct look to collectively create unique design effect.
Modern Kitchen with Dark Cabinets, Mid-Century Stools
This modern kitchen has a distinct mid-century vibe, with dark brown cabinetry that extends to the ceiling for maximum storage and throwback barstools covered in a burnt-orange leather. A pot filler adds function above the cooktop.
The beautiful floral accessories upon the elegant, white countertop adds interest and dimension to this kitchen. Designer Michelle Rohrer-Lauer added exquisite, colorful dishware and glass fronts to the existing kitchen cabinets to add visually appealing and decorative accents to the space. The design makes for an aesthetically pleasing, transitional-style kitchen with real-world functionality for the family.
Transitional Gourmet Kitchen is Open, Family-Friendly
This eat-in transitional kitchen features a contemporary dining table paired with wicker chairs, as well as bartop eating off the island. Traditional, dark brown cabinets are paired with neutral stone countertops and backsplash, while contemporary lighting brings a modern touch to the space.
Without upper cabinets, the kitchen has a larger, more open feel. Floating shelves provide extra storage, while a glimmering white tile backsplash adds depth and style to the space. Clean-lined white countertops mix with walnut cabinets for a contemporary look.
Warm woods combine with bright whites for a natural yet contemporary color palette. The large kitchen is centered by an island with a cooktop and mirrored range hood. Windows flank both sides of the space, allowing in natural light.
