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.
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
This funky kitchen and dining space features a rustic wood cabinet framed by a white built-in sideboard and vibrant red tile accent wall. A dining area with a glass table and teal clover back chairs provides a space for casual entertaining, while a fuchsia built-in hutch adds an additional pop of color.
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.
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.
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.
Bold, Colorful Wallpaper in Vintage-Inspired Kitchen
Multi-hued wallpaper in a leaf pattern picks up on the yellow cabinet fronts. The custom dry-bar provides extra counter space as well as place to store and display liquor. It's clad in oak wood that was salvaged from wood pallets then run through a planer to give it a smooth finish. Free-hanging steel shelves hanging above the bar are ideal for displaying glassware as well as some of vintage collectibles.
Contemporary Eat-In Kitchen With Custom Rolling Dining Table
Natural light illumines this lively kitchen with a custom rolling dining table and colorful chairs. Shelves with neatly arranged dishes line the full-height glass tile backsplash, while black leather stools at the wood top kitchen island provide additional space for casual dining.
