Although the cabinets don't meet the ceiling, white walls and transom windows close the gap to prevent the kitchen from looking disjointed and blocky. A large kitchen island anchors the room, providing additional counter space, storage and an eat-in breakfast bar area. Modern wooden barstools bring in warmth and a natural element to offset all the white surfaces.
A large modern canvas is the focal point of this minimalist, modern bar set up. A trio of barstool, with alternating polished leather seat cushions, line the thin bar and compliment the angled lines of the table legs. The beautifully rich hardwood grounds the etherial and bright look of the white walls.
Dark wood cabinets and bar add an air of luxury in this traditional bar. A silver mantel and a black and white, checked tile floor are stylized touches that create a traditional feel for the bar area while the stainless steel backsplash adds a modern flair.
Perfect for entertaining, this large kitchen uses a sharp contrast between black and white design elements to create a sleek look throughout the space. Funky bar stools with leather seat cushions line the kitchen island, providing a perfect place for casual dining or relaxation. Glass-front upper cabinets are lite from within to create a glow around the room.
Instead of going overboard on a bright island color that you may question later, a vibrant trio of bar stools can give you the shot of color you desire. These stools were less than $40 each at a home decor store. New River Building Co. in metro Atlanta used just one bank of cabinets for the island, providing a deep space for seating.
Get a modern classic look with affordable elements, like a black silestone countertop instead of higher-priced granite or marble, and cheerful furniture. These yellow barstools, which cost $260 for a pair, have a durable plastic seat to handle spills and messes.
Using high-quality and unique materials allow a space to be at once simple and upscale. Here, a modern kitchen boasts granite-colored, clean-lined cabinetry and kitchen island, plus striking bar stools crafted from a gorgeous, honey-toned wood. The flowering tree painting brings life into the room.
