Stainless steel appliances line the single full wall in this spacious contemporary kitchen. The neutral space is open on three sides and features beautiful bird's-eye-maple cabinets, a wood ceiling with recessed lighting and stainless steel-edged countertops.
After a makeover by designer Peter Feinmann, this new kitchen is bigger with the old laundry room incorporated. Maple cabinets keep the look clean and contemporary, and a trio of red pendants add essential punch. Photography by Eric Roth
Light maple cabinets and vertical batten board used for the backsplash add contemporary style to this urban loft kitchen. Industrial touches, including copper pendant lights and wood-and-metal barstools, add welcome contrast and texture to the neutral space.
A funky gray and white tile backsplash adds texture and visual interest to this stylish kitchen. Maple cabinets with an Irish creme finish and gray quartz countertops provide ample storage space for kitchen necessities. Stainless steel appliances compliment the contemporary design while hardwood floors bring warmth to the space.
Careful planning and expert design resulted in a contemporary kitchen that is open on three sides, maximizing the homeowners' views of a cove right outside. Bird's-eye-maple cabinets are complemented by a frosted-glass appliance tower which conceals appliances within without sacrificing natural light in the neutral space.
Stainless steel appliances line the single full wall in this contemporary kitchen. The remaining three sides do not have full walls, fulfilling the homeowner's wish for an open kitchen. The neutral palette is personified by the engineered countertops with stainless steel edging, wood-plank ceiling and bird's-eye-maple cabinets.
As seen on HGTV’s Property Brothers, this kitchen was redesigned with gray-stained maple cabinets, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and stainless steel pendant lights above the island. The wall between the kitchen and living area was removed, creating a more open look and a better flow between rooms. As a finishing touch, the new breakfast bar was outfitted with modern-rustic barstools.
Throughout the home's original living room and kitchen, heavy maple cabinetry with thick, floating crown moldings to match made the spaces feel old and outdated to the family, so designers modernized the spaces, giving both rooms a coat of white paint. Then, they gave the original cabinets a facelift, painting the lower kitchen cabinets black for contrast and giving the other cabinets a new white sheen. The cabinets were then rearranged to meet the design vision that created these beautiful, inviting, updated living space.
Just off the Mediterranean kitchen is another bar area that gives the homeowners plenty of space for their frequent parties. Underfoot, a tapered French limestone floor gives the kitchen some "ooh-la-la" oomph. The darker cabinets here contrast with the maple wood cabinets in the kitchen, which have an opaque paint glaze called "modeling," giving a leathery effect that plays nicely off the aged metal hardware.
A sideboard, inspired by a buffet shown at the renowned 1928 Paris Exhibition, serves as the perfect bar. With pocket doors and a lighted interior, the cabinet is finished in Jupiter walnut, maple, copper gold and mother of pearl detailing. A large quartzite panel mounted above is the perfect decoration to finish the look.
Royal blue barstools and glass pendant lights punctuate the transitional kitchen with two-tone cabinets in maple and dark cherry, a mosaic tile backsplash and a dancing workshop island topped with blue-speckled black granite.
The master bath's larger vanity, with solid maple drawer fronts painted bright white, includes a 40-inch-wide by 30-inch-high medicine cabinet with anodized aluminum construction and a durable rust-free and chip-free finish.
The pale color of the island's elm butcher block countertop is a visually striking contrast to the dark maple floors and blue gray cabinets. It also helps the overall kitchen feel lighter and brighter.
The perimeter cabinets in this lovely transitional kitchen use oyster finished maple with lots of detail and an amaretto glaze, creating a nice contrast with the mahogany flooring. The magnificent stone countertops blend all the colors in the room together.
