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.
The caramel tones in this kitchen -- from the cabinets to the floors -- add a comfortable air, creating a cozy space for cooking and conversation. The finishes create a fresh space that lends itself well to mixing furniture and window treatments, creating an overall traditional feel but with tailored lines and rustic features. The outcome: a space that has a transitional feel, perfect for all ages.
Light wood cabinetry and neutral pastel tiles soften the industrial look of the stainless steel countertop and appliances. A clerestory window lets in natural light to keep the space bright. The thin floor space is maximized by building the fixtures alone both sides leaving a clear isle and uncluttered counters.
There's nothing more cozy and inviting than an eat-in kitchen with breakfast nook. Here, dark woods are used in the nook as opposed to the light woods in the kitchen, creating a sense of a separate space -- but one that's still connected due to the matching chairs at the kitchen island. Striped windows in both spaces also create a unity.
Light wood cabinetry gives this kitchen a clean, smooth finish. Textured accent backsplash panels add a lovely contrast to the cabinetry. Patterned bar chairs add a touch of color lining the curved island with dark granite countertop.
The addition of glass cabinetry on either side of the existing small window provides the illusion of a larger window with a better flow of light. Beautiful soapstone countertops and state-of-the-art appliances embellish this kitchen with a timeless ambiance filled with modern conveniences.
Interior and under-cabinet lights add instant flair to this stylish kitchen, a 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Competition winner. Designer Judith Wright Sentz of Judith Wright Design used ribbon lights in the leaded-glass cabinets to illuminate the shelves within and low voltage lights under the cabinets to bathe the countertops below in warm light.
