In this townhouse renovation, a more efficient kitchen with updated appliances and wider work surfaces was a
must. A Spanish-style tile backsplash does the double trick of punching up the white cabinets and making the ceiling feel even higher.
White Cottage Open Kitchen and Dining Room With Ladder
To counter the limited square footage in this home, designers combined the kitchen, breakfast nook and dining room into one larger, easy-flow space. Upper cabinets are accessed by a fun library ladder. The dining table is hand-crafted out of live-edge spalted elm.
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.
The fun, young family who live in this home wanted an open kitchen with a lot of light and space where they could gather together and entertain. For a colorful surprise, the designers created an island with a rich eggplant finish accented with brass details.
Country Kitchen Complete With Mint-Colored Accessories
Stepping inside this New England home reveals an interior just as charming as the exterior, with bright colors and country-style furniture. White walls and large windows keep the space light and airy, while mint-colored pendant lights and coral chairs create a fun, laid-back atmosphere.
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.
Classic White Kitchen with Drum Pendant Over Island
A drum pendant with a shade offers affordable elegance, no matter your style, above an island or kitchen table. The filter on the bottom hides the bulbs and creates a soft glow, says interior designer Michelle Mentzer. You can find drum pendants with solid or patterned linen shades often starting at $125.
To encourage flow from one room to the next, designer Joe Human layered this modern kitchen and hallway with polka dot wallpaper and custom pieces. Three copper barstools, geometric lights and a marble island add a luxe touch to the design.
This open kitchen layout with a walnut wood (matching the wood application in the family room) island and matte finish cabinets has a contemporary design style. The high-gloss finishes on the backsplash complement the color scheme perfectly.
