Designers wanted the kitchen to be both elegant and functional, so they continued the modern look into this space. Clean lines and sharp edges keep the room looking clean and neat, while the blue-gray tile and rich hardwood floor make the space warm and inviting. To accommodate the homeowners' everyday as well as entertaining needs, designers included plenty of prep and storage space with counters and cabinets on two walls of the space and a large kitchen island with an eat in option. To add to the elegance of the space, designers added stainless steel appliances and stainless steel pendant lights, giving the room a little extra sparkle that highlights the natural light that comes in through the door and windows.
The overall vision for this home's spaces was modern farmhouse, so designers chose a beautiful oak hardwood floor to run throughout the main areas of the house. Then, they brought in a lot of white and marble, helping to make the spaces feel timeless and classic. Finally, warmth was added to the home through gold and black accents and wood details that really brought the rustic farmhouse feel to life.
The homeowners wanted a texture-rich space with a simple feel, so designers set out to achieve that goal by using cabinets that were a mix of wood and back painted glass. Black granite was added to the countertops, backsplash and range hood. This creates a sleek, streamlined design for the heart of this sophisticated home.
Creating sleek, functional kitchen was the goal of this design, so it was given a black and white color palette. To improve the space's functionality, the walls at either end of the kitchen add extra cabinets. A kitchen island adds counter space, while two sinks provide additional prep space.
Space planning was important for designer Mary Bokovoy to make this great room function as a kitchen, dining and living space. She chose a round table, rather than an island, to give her client an eat-in space for dining.
This home is located in a historical neighborhood where timeless and classic finishes are appreciated, so designers chose to embrace that design by installing white throughout the space. From the white and gray tile backsplash to the white kitchen island, the space remains clean and classic with wood accents that bring warmth to the design.
Muted gray cabinets pair with black quartz countertops, while contrasting white quartz countertops top the 13-foot-long island. Quartz countertops offer the advantage of resistance to staining and are essentially maintenance free. A well-lit kitchen relies on sophisticated and layered lighting from multiple sources. In this case that includes recessed spots for dramatic accent, industrial-style pendants for concentrated task lighting and a trio of rustic sconces over the sink.
This residential kitchen boasts commercial flair. Functionally, the room was laid out to maximize prep space for cooking; visually, the sense of immense space was heightened by using three different types of engineered stone for the backsplash, the countertop and the island topper. The neutral background is broken with a dash of bright orange in the light fixtures — an easily changeable feature when you're in the mood for a different color. This impressive kitchen with was designed by Poggenpohl team Tedd McKee and Rosemary Porto in collaboration with architecture firm CUBE 3 Studio.
Designed to deliver equal portions of elegance and functionality, this NYC kitchen delivers innovative design concepts, from the outstanding millwork in the chocolate-stained oak cabinets to a single-slab marble hearth wall that conceals the range hood.
This contemporary kitchen design provides a dedicated space for a breakfast nook and a workstation for cooking. The dark stone countertops play well against the white subway tile backsplash and cabinetry.
This kitchen's designer selected green and white marble tiles in a classic harlequin pattern for a unique backsplash that contemporizes this otherwise traditional kitchen. The silver antique meat grinder is another showstopper of the room and makes one think of an artistic piece of sculpture, rather than a cooking apparatus.
To add warmth to the white kitchen, designers added White Oak detail around the space's upper cabinet. This addition plays nicely off the White Oak flooring. Subtle texture throughout the space, in details such as the white herringbone tile backsplash and the gray and black veining in the quartzite countertop, kept the space feeling light and airy, while contrast was used sparingly and the Turkish Kilim rug adds pattern and a playful, cheery style to the otherwise neutral color scheme.
