Designer Warm Modern Kitchen with Waterfall Edge Island, Mirror Over the Sink and Fireplace
When the kitchen is in the center of the house or in a windowless space, place an oversized mirror over the sink to create the illusion of a window, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. This home also uses furniture in the kitchen for storage, instead of another row of built-in cabinets.
Take a closer look at the farmhouse sink and see how the marble backsplash and kitchen counters are in perfect harmony. With chrome fixtures and white cabinets above, the vignette is both bright and peaceful.
Blue Backsplash Adds Color and Charm to Modern, Country Kitchen
This beautiful, blue tile backsplash adds charm and color to this small, modern, country kitchen. Due to the limited space, designers kept the cabinets and walls a light, neutral color, but added warmth through the colorful backsplash, tying the whole space together.
Exposed beams make this modern kitchen feel cozy, even with vaulted ceilings. Upholstered teal barstools with chrome legs fit perfectly underneath the counter. A wine fridge also fits snuggly under the counter for easy access.
This small galley kitchen gets a modern industrial look from stainless steel appliances, a blackened steel bar counter and sleek red cabinets. Roughly-hewn Siberian oak flooring recalls the industrial origins of the building.
You’ve heard the old chestnut, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” When working with a space that has awkward or unusual lines, designers often have to make the best of the situation — and truly talented pros turn the oddity into a design feature that looks absolutely intentional. When designing the kitchen for a home with corners dramatically out of square, Kerr Construction embraced that architectural quirk and emphasized it with the design of the kitchen island. “The unusual shape of the island matches the corners on that side of the home, and the recessed ceiling above the counter,” they say.
With a green accent wall and four wire-backed stools in teal, this modern kitchen doesn't shy away from color. A large island sits front and center for quick meal prep and cleanup while still complementing the sleek modern appliances.
This eat-in kitchen gives a nod to modern design with its streamlined cabinetry and glossy finishes. A combination of track and pendant lighting illuminate the space, originally featured on HGTV's Kitchen Cousins, and shows off the pale hardwood floors and a pink tile accent wall.
