Wallpaper makes a surprise appearance in this contemporary kitchen: It adds a sense of whimsy and fun to complement the more angular and straightforward cabinets and features. The kitchen island boasts comfortable stools at the breakfast bar, plus pendants above for more intimate lighting.
Clear your island and use simple, inexpensive items to reset your kitchen style. In this kitchen, designers with homebuilder Lennar add a few pops of color by piling bright red apples on a three-tiered tray from a discount home decor store. The red apples contrast with the arrangement of green succulents nearby.
If you like your cabinets but want a bit more pizzazz, put a spotlight on them with lighting. Designer Judith Wright Sentz used LED ribbon lights inside and low voltage lights underneath. Not only does this showcase the beautiful leaded glass doors and items on display, it also provides additional functional light for the kitchen. Sentz says the kitchen, which was a 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Design Competition winner, was once very dark, so she took care to add as much light to the space as possible.
This modern kitchen features lots of wooden accents, from the spacious cabinets to the kitchen island and hardwood flooring. Guests can enjoy a meal from the large kitchen island with seating for four.
HGTV's Flip or Flop hosts Tarek and Christina El Moussa ditched the dated yellow cabinets once featured in this kitchen and opted for sleek dark wooden cabinets instead. Stainless steel appliances and knobs give this space a more modern look.
This beautiful white kitchen makes use of all the modern conveniences. The use of pop-up countertop receptacles enables the uninterrupted flow of the glass backsplash. The articulating faucet adds whimsy and fun to the structured design of the kitchen's straight and clean lines. Special features such as long lift-up hardware, compact European appliances, white quartz countertops, demi-high units housing the oven and microwave, an integrated refrigerator, a compact wall-mounted wine chiller and grain match veneer give this kitchen the finishing edge.
The layout of the kitchen in this waterfront home takes full advantage of its beautiful location on the edge of Lake Tahoe. A sliding door pulls back to join the space with the outside areas and there are lots of windows letting in the sky and mountain views.
