A clear glass tile backsplash provides a sleek, clean background for the stainless steel range hood and high-tech cooktop. It has a child safety lock, anti-overflow system and touchscreen capabilities for easy meal preparation. A stainless steel pot filler is mounted above to cooktop for convenience.
Removing all walls between the kitchen, dining and living room opened up the space dramatically. Sliding glass doors provide access to the large deck, while dark cherry cabinets pair with the light hardwood floors for a striking look.
Quartz countertops flank a butcher block countertop, providing plenty of prep space, on this 18-foot-long island. One side features a glass cooktop, while the other side has a gas range. A contemporary double range hood doubles as task lighting for the island.
Haddad Hakansson designed this small kitchen employing a neutral color palette, integrated appliances and sleek cabinetry to amplify space and to allow the Boston view to become a prominent feature. In this photo, a glass cooktop and a small range hood were set amid the kitchen cabinetry, with small mosaic tile providing a continuous effect. The cabinets are rift frameless oak with a gray wash.
Instead of using color to create visual interest, this all-white kitchen livens up its look by incorporating different textures (marble, wood) and patterns, like the mosaic-tile backsplash for the cooktop.
Use recurring patterns and materials for a cohesive style throughout the kitchen. Designer Diane Foreman, of Neil Kelly Company used a mix of stainless steel and colored tiles for the backsplash of this 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Competition winning kitchen. The tile echoes the stainless steel in the sink and cooktop, and Foreman repeated a circular pattern throughout the room, a technique she says adds professional flair to the space.
