Brilliant White Kitchen With Shiplap Walls
Designer Karen Swanson of New England Design Works used found plywood to create unique walls that resemble shiplap siding. A stunning round chandelier with Edison bulbs is a charming edition to the room.
Light and airy, this white farmhouse kitchen has clean-line cabinets, open shelving for displaying dishes and glassware and wide plank white wood flooring. An industrial-style light hangs above a country-inspired dining table and chairs for an eat-in breakfast area.
A large, stylish kitchen is the perfect relaxing space for the family to cook together, enjoy their meals and entertain their friends. White cabinets around the main section of the kitchen keep the space light and bright, while the blue, arabesque tile adds a splash of muted color. To add contrast and counter space, designers installed a kitchen island whose color scheme is the opposite of the rest of the kitchen-dark cabinets and white countertops-to add interest and create a transition between the kitchen and dining areas.
A second view of the kitchen shows how the new appliances were incorporated into the space. Dark wood paneling behind the refrigerator and microwaves contrasts against all the white used in cabinetry and countertop. The double hood was selected for its maximized function, as well as for its modern and sculptural look. We love how the circular design contrasts against the linear and angular finish to the rest of the kitchen.
Warm, Traditional Kitchen With White and Wood Cabinetry
In a warm, traditional kitchen with beamed ceilings, iron wall racks and a dark wood island, white cabinetry offers bright contrast. The island provides customized storage on the working side as well as seating on the backside for entertaining.
The professional, chef kitchen pairs sleek beech cabinets with a coffee-toned stain with contemporary white countertops. The kitchen offers the entire line of Miele appliances, including a built-in espresso maker, steam oven and an induction cooktop.
The country-style eat-in kitchen features stone floors and gorgeous paneled ceilings. Leading-edge appliances, a butler’s pantry, and a temperature-controlled wine refrigerator surround a butcher’s block, offering optimal utility with resplendent charm.
Stained cherry wood carries from the floor to the cabinets in this modern kitchen, creating a warm, welcoming ambiance. The sleek barstools even feature wood backs, ensuring a completely cohesive design. Black countertops and a matching black backsplash offer striking contrast within the space.
Twin kitchen islands allow for more prep space and room to dine in this lovely, contemporary kitchen. Hardwood flooring adds warmth to the chic design, and a combination of blue pendant lights and recessed lighting help brighten up the space.
