Warm Tone Country Kitchen With Dark Green Cabinetry and Long Island With Wood Countertop
A beautiful green cabinet finish pops against a white subway tile backsplash and yellow wall. A long while island with wood countertop brightens the center of the room and is complete with exposed storage shelves. Copper pendant lights add an extra sheen to the stainless steel appliances.
Two stylistically different backsplashes are used in the vintage-inspired kitchen. Behind the stove are teal-blue vertical tiles extending to the ceiling, while the adjacent wall features dark gray penny-round and is finished with bone white grout to accent the shape of the tiles.
Modern Industrial Loft Kitchen With Chalkboard Wall
Instead of a refrigerator plastered with magnets and notes, this loft kitchen features a chalkboard wall where people can leave reminders, notes or fun pictures. A gray metal rolling island, light fixture and stools add to the industrial feel of the space, while yellow zigzag wallpaper and a pink and red star runner add pops of color and texture.
Designer Kelli Kaufer created this one-of-a-kind backsplash using her client’s prized collection of buttons (plus a few extras bought at garage sales and crafts stores). “I used a double-sided sticky mat,” she says. “Apply the mat to the wall and start placing the buttons. You may want to use the back side of the buttons as there are fewer ridges. Once the buttons are in place, apply a non-sanded grout just like you would grout normal tile. This will help hold the buttons in place.”
Ideal for hosting parties or cooking for two, this functional kitchen features an arched vent hood, detailed cabinetry and alcoves built in above the stove to hold spices, oils and other flavorings for convenient cooking. Design by Gail Drury
The clean, modern cabinets have beechwood surrounds, plywood back boxes and feature soft-close. The cabinet hardware has the look of weathered copper with a blue-green verdigris patina. Antique inspiration is behind the kitchen island, which is clad in a cold-rolled steel wrapped around a plywood substrate for a smooth and durable work surface.
Colorful Kitchen With Handmade Ceramic Tile Countertops
Tile designer Vicki Morrow lined the countertops in this kitchen with her own, handmade ceramics. You could, of course, use purchased handmade ceramics – or even off-the-shelf squares from your local big-box store.
