Small Contemporary Kitchen With Tile Backsplash And Dark Wood Cabinets
This small kitchen with dark wood cabinets and black appliances benefits from good lighting, both the recessed lights above and the under cabinet lighting which helps to make the space feel like a larger kitchen.
On HGTV’s Fixer Upper, Joanna's design plan took into account the home's space constraints. Nonetheless, the kitchen features a generous sized island with bar seating where meals can both be prepped and served. A vintage refrigerator, vent hood, floating shelves and new wooden flooring completes the kitchen design.
The need for a pantry was reduced by creating a food cube shelf that not only holds 18 cubes of food, but also houses the kitchen's electrical outlets and LED strip lighting. Kitchen appliances, including the stovetop, are all plug-in and can be stowed away, leaving more open counter space.
Contemporary Kitchenette With Neutral Palette and Colorful Decor
Porcelain tile in a gorgeous herringbone pattern provides the look of wood, but the durability of tile, in a potentially wet space. An original work of wax art in vibrant shades of teal hangs above a white coral-esque console table. Yellow vases offer further pops of color and join the two spaces.
Simple Floating Shelves and Vent Hood Add Style and Function Tiny Vintage Home
On HGTV's Fixer Upper, the small kitchen features a vintage refrigerator, vent hood, floating shelves and wooden flooring. The black floating shelves, vent hood and counter top are a stark contrast to the neutral walls and tile back splash, making them a functional design element in the space.
In this kitchen's makeover, shortening the window over the sink freed up room to expand the peninsula countertop and add two floating shelves. The white palette keeps the space light and bright, even with the window a little smaller.
This open loft kitchen features fully concealed appliances, flip up high storage units for easy access and a countertop that wraps into the main living space and becomes a virtual "hearth" with a built in entertainment system. The sleek, hard edges lend a modern look to the space that needs little decor to bring its own character.
