Everything about this eat-in kitchen gleams, from the bright pendant lights all the way down to the hardwood floors. An island with white wood and a black countertop houses three barstools, providing a nice contrast to the rich wood cabinets and white counters.
To create contrast in this transitional kitchen, the island cabinets are a dark zebrawood while the cabinets on the perimeter walls are white. The natural light from the large window illuminates the cabinets, making this space feel open and inviting.
While the bottom of the island and the surrounding lower cabinets have a deep charcoal gray color with a wood grain look, the upper cabinets have a white linen finish that keeps things light. “I didn’t want to create a dark kitchen, but I wanted some depth,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “By keeping the darker finish below, it anchors the room visually and then adding the contrasting white up top keeps the room from darkening.”
The kitchen’s soft white custom cabinets with brass finish hardware pop against the deep gray walls with soft white trim, and coordinate with the durable Calcutta Sienna quartz counters. A 7-inch white oak hardwood floor provides a neutral backdrop that allows all of the kitchen’s design details to shine.
The lighter natural oak base of the island coordinates with the drawers by the range, and provides contrast for the island’s matte Mesabi Black Granite counter and the matte black cabinets flanking the range.
Pure Design Interiors gave this kitchen a fresh look with white upper cabinets, brown lower cabinets, solid white countertops and a bright red oven with a stainless steel cooktop. A graphic gray and white backsplash ties the space together and adds visual interest to the design.
Traditional white cabinets go floor to ceiling to provide tons of storage space in this classic kitchen. A black island contrasts against the white cabinets, while neutral granite countertops are used throughout.
This unexpected kitchen design has an eclectic look with its combination of white and dark wood cabinetry. The white, glass-front upper cabinets brighten the room, while the dark wood of the of lower cabinets coordinates with the black countertop and light wood flooring — adding a sleek look.
Bright red tiles against light bamboo cabinets create a lively look, and exciting contrast. The coral tile mixed with the bamboo cabinets create the modern look that the Kitchen Cousins were trying to achieve.
