The details in this South Carolina low country kitchen are absolutely perfect. The stainless steel of the cabinet hardware adds to the neutral, serene feeling in the space and nicely compliment the distressed, white cabinets. The backsplash, made of white subway tile, makes an elegant addition to the space, giving it a clean, timeless look.
Designer Lisa Furey's challenge was to design and build a 690-square-foot low country cottage that would include a kitchen, laundry area, bedroom and workspace as well as outdoor space. Board and batten siding, a standing seam metal roof and board and batten composite shutters — all weather-proof choices — give the exterior a farmhouse feel.
A large, open doorway makes this small kitchen appear spacious, while a centered island allows movement throughout the space. Wicker barstools line the tall side of the island, and a lower end creates extra prep space. Open shelving opens up the room while keeping dishes organized, and a distressed wall finish completes the look with a charming country feel.
For this kitchen's fun stove backsplash, designer Leanne Ford stays within the neutral gray-and-white color palette, but adds visual interest by layering cross-shaped tiles on top of the wood paneling. The lower half of the paneling is painted dark gray for more contrast, as seen on HGTV's Restored by the Fords.
With some chicken wire and white chalk paint, craft blogger Amy Gregson transformed her builder-grade oak cabinets into her dream farmhouse kitchen. “It really lightened the space up and gave it a ton of personality,” she says. “It makes me smile every time I walk in there!” She paired the white upper cabinets with dark lower cabinets and bright-white countertops.
Beautiful light blue upper and lower cabinets provide ample storage in this country kitchen. A black table in the center serves as a buffet and also allows seating for four. Stainless steel appliances and a gray country-style pendant complete the stylish design.
The eye is immediately drawn to the vibrant purple oven that pops against the gray cabinets and creamy walls in this country-style kitchen. A gray tile backsplash helps connect the lower cabinets to the upper cabinets and matching range hood. Dark hardwood flooring completes the look.
To modernize the kitchen and open up the space, the owners install open shelving, repaint the lower cabinets and replace the counter with a hand-me-down butcher block. Even with a splurge on vinyl floor tiles, they keep the budget to $3,400.
The chic elegance of the kitchen extends into the dining room.The large table seats eight, while the luscious furniture and fabrics add elegance to the space. The chandelier hanging above the table gives a country feel to the room, while the rugs and wall accessories add color. The large doors and window banks let in tons of natural light, keeping the space feeling bright and inviting.
This beautiful kitchen has a white subway tile wall. Gray upper and lower cabinets add a contrast against the wooden ceiling beams and hardwood flooring. The wood and metallic baker's counter adds extra space to hold kitchen supplies and fresh flowers.
To give the lower cabinets that perfectly imperfect look, the designer started with a coat of light gray paint and then added one coat of this gorgeous green. After the green had dried, a light wash of gray was applied and then sanded and wiped off.
High-performance appliances meet statuesque white cabinetry in this contemporary kitchen. Above the stainless-steel stove and cooktop, a powerful exhaust vent and task lighting are tucked underneath a custom-made hood. The patterned backsplash is comprised of marble subway tile. The glass doors on the upper cabinets allow the homeowners to showcase their favorite dishware, while the drawer stacks in the lower cabinets enable them to hide away what they don't want seen.
A black-and-white patterned tile, custom vent hood and pot-filler faucet are fixed between upper and lower cabinetry in this stylish country kitchen. On the facing wall a mounted indoor herb garden adds a natural life to the room. Hardwood flooring and the soft sage color of the cabinets pair with the granite countertop and shiplap walls for a timeless, inviting look.
The lower floor of this home is open concept with the kitchen, dining area and living room flowing seamlessly together. Weathered wood floors connect the spaces and designer Leanne Ford has styled the home with her texturally rich, neutral palette.
