Create a cohesive look next to your kitchen cabinets with a trio of shelves in the same hue. Atlantan Amanda Macy Hall, who works at a design center and blogs about home decor and DIY projects, used inexpensive white shelves from IKEA to update her kitchen, before fully taking on a remodel.
This small kitchen gets an updated look with stainless steal appliances, granite countertops and clean, white cabinets. The quilted tile backsplash embellishes the wall, becoming the focal point for the room.
This old colonial home had many smaller rooms that needed to be opened up and integrated to make the space more usable for a modern day family. Contemporary pendants, stainless steel finishes and sleek black countertops are paired with white kitchen cabinets and a white brick backsplash in this transitional kitchen.
Like other rooms in this historic home, the kitchen was reimagined and adapted for modern living. Now the space features an open concept design, with crisp white cabinetry and a subway tile backsplash that stretches from one side to the next. The space also boasts long countertops, stainless appliances and a large island on the left.
The large galley kitchen in this beach home makes the most of its space. Updated stainless steel appliances and plenty of counter space gives the family a heavy duty work space, and with plenty of space between the two counters and the large eat in counter, this kitchen is the perfect place for the family to cook, eat and entertain.
Updated accessories – like this stunning gas oven, cooktop and stainless steal range hood – fit effortlessly within this classic and stylish transitional kitchen. A neutral palette throughout the cabinetry and tile backsplash allows for fun accents, like the checkerboard teapot or the black modern pulls, to excite and create a bit of a warm, country feel.
The family wanted a space that blended vintage charm with the conveniences of modern appliances, so they chose traditional elements, such as the gold accents and wood trim, and added modern-day touches, like the stainless steel oven and a farmhouse sink. The end result is an overall cottage-style feel.
As seen on HGTV's Love It Or List It, Too, Designer Jillian Harris modernized this west coast home by removing a pillar that sat in the middle of the entrance. She painted the walls with Behr Cotton Knit and installed engineered hickory hardwood flooring with Tremblant stain. The kitchen entrance was removed and the pantry and office desk area were closed in to create the laundry room. The Ceasarstone kitchen countertops, London Grey and Stone Grey, were extended along the back wall. Jillian removed another pillar in the centre of the kitchen and modernized the existing island with clean straight lines. Jillian completes the kitchen with Antique Imperial Mist subway tile for the backsplash.
This kitchen was updated with slate blue cabinets, quartzite countertops, leathered black and honed granite island, recessed lighting with exposed beams, as well as a geometric white tile backsplash to provide a contemporary farmhouse feel.
Bright and elegant, circle top windows keep this striking transitional kitchen bathed in natural light, illuminating sophisticated cabinetry, marble countertops and dark wood floors. A farmhouse sink, coffered ceiling and subway tile backsplash adds a bit of updated country flair and creates a feeling of history. Using glass cabinet doors opens up the room, helping the space seem bigger and more alive.
Recessed lighting, orange metal drum shade pendant lights and a large window bring warmth and light to this kitchen. Polished granite countertops on the island serve as a durable surface for meal prep.
The refrigerator was tucked out of view from the living room, and the oven was pushed to the far end to allow as much continuous counter space as possible. A contrasting finish for the island cabinets were chosen to be more furniture-like. New doors lead out to the backyard’s screened-in porch.
