The kitchen in this renovated 1940s Noe Valley home in San Francisco features rich, hardwood cabinets in a sleek, modern design and luxe marble countertops and backsplash. The space, located in the central part of the home is lit by a simple skylight to keep it from feeling too dark.
This modern kitchen remodel features a deep brown cabinetry paired with a neutral tile backsplash and granite countertops. Incorporating an eating area into the kitchen island eliminates the need for a separate kitchen table.In this case, the unusual shape of the kitchen island compensates for misaligned window placement. The unique countertop is made from Brazilian Mascarelo granite. Stainless steel appliances and metal kitchen stools add upgraded and coordinating features to the space.
A unifying color scheme allows the different rooms in an open plan layout to have some cohesion. The dark wood of this open plan kitchen's cabinetry is echoed in the formal dining table. The accent color white is utilized by both spaces in different ways.
The smooth dark wood of the cabinetry pops against the light, neutral marble tile of the floor and bright, white ceiling. The beautiful cherry-colored countertop perfectly displays the unique Asian vases and the flowers, bringing a small touch of color. In the background, a rectangle table with square stools can be pulled out for seating or stored easily against the wall.
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.
Dark, wood cabinets on the long double-sink vanity add a deep contrast to the bright color scheme. Marble floor tile continues from the floor onto the walls creating a backsplash above the vanity and a tile wall in the large, walk in shower. An accent panel of small blue tile adds a touch of color visible through the glass shower doors.
Sophisticated and elegant, this traditional gray kitchen features a spacious island with a granite countertop and prep sink. Crisp white cabinets pair with dark cabinetry and kitchen island for exquisite contrast.
Light countertops and a blue mosaic tile backsplash brighten this U-shaped kitchen, which features sleek, dark cabinetry. Stainless steel appliances and linear cabinet pulls complement the contemporary design.
You'll never think neutral is boring again after taking a glance at this traditional kitchen. Dark hardwood floors create a depth in the space, but it's the whites that shine -- from the custom cabinetry to the painted brick backsplash to the large kitchen island topped with Carrera marble. Recessed lighting brings extra brightness without subtracting from the visual space.
While compact, the impact of this kitchen is big. Keeping a neutral and white color scheme makes the space live larger than it actually is by creating a clean palette and lines. The paneled refrigerator allows the appliance to blend into the cabinetry and not distract from the design. Unique elements include the custom, architectural range hood and Carrera marble tile backsplash.
Dark cabinetry can bring a sense of elegance to your child's room. If you don't have enough closet space, an open cabinet system may be a better option. Install clothing rods vertically to save space and to give a boutique-style look to the space. Keep items you use every day at hand level for easily accessibility.
