This kitchen is all about symmetry, with double doors flanking the double fridge, exotic-wood cabinets lining two walls and a wood drop ceiling to match a wooden floor insert. Deep purple walls keep the modern space from being cold.
Rich colors fill this well-appointed kitchen. Flat-panel cabinetry with transom-window tops are done in two different finishes, one dark and one light.

To transform their dingy and outdated laundry room into a bright and modern-day utility space, design blogger Erin Loechner and her husband, Ken, renovated the entire room from top to bottom sans contractor.

Now, the space appears stylish and homespun but 100 percent functional.

The homeowners needed an office in their new space, so designers created one that was as modern and elegant as the rest of the home. Within the space, there is plenty of storage with standing cabinets on one side of the desk, upper and lower cabinets in the rear of the space, and with the lower cabinets, designers gave the space an additional desk so there is plenty of flat work space. For the finishing touch, they decorated with statues and artwork that tie this space into the modern design of the rest of the home.

White cabinets will complement almost any decor you want to choose — now or 20 years from now. “To choose a style, consider the existing architecture of the home and how the cabinetry works visually within its environment,” says designer Tatiana Machado-Rosas of Jackson Design and Remodeling. “A raised panel is often a good choice for more traditional styles, while a Shaker style (shown here) works with a modern, simple design.”
