Custom blue Shaker cabinets and the pental quartz backsplash give this midcentury modern kitchen visual life. Counters and appliances are kept sleek and fuss-free, with plenty of room for modern conveniences like an espresso machine and wine refrigerator.
To give the homeowners much-needed space for entertaining, designers installed a large kitchen island that has enough seating for at least five guests. Not only does this space provide seating, it also gives the homeowners extra counter space for easy meal preparation, since there is direct access to the home's double ovens, microwave, refrigerator and stove from the kitchen island, which also contains a large prep sink for simple kitchen cleanup.
This old colonial home had many smaller rooms that needed to be opened up and integrated to make the space more usable for a modern day family. Here, a hallway off the breakfast nook houses pantries and the refrigerator.
This modern, serene kitchen is finished in Columbia frameless rift white oak composite and walnut cabinets with accents of aluminum frame doors and frosted glass. The panel fronts on the refrigerator allow the appliance to seamlessly blend into the pantry.
A large, blue kitchen island not only offers room for prep and cooking but also features seating, built-in cookbook storage, drawers and a wine refrigerator. A metal chair has a modern look against the contemporary cork flooring and blue tile backsplash.
In this sleek kitchen makeover, walls were knocked down to connect the kitchen, dining and living areas in an open plan layout. Pops of bright yellow add fun personality and color to the modern space.

This spacious kitchen from the 2009 HGTV Dream Home combines the look of traditional cabinets with state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances. Twin refrigerators, dishwashers, wine cabinets and islands make entertaining a crowd effortless in this traditional-meets-modern cooking space. The room features a convenient pantry and space for dining.
The homeowners felt their space was lacking in architectural detail, so they had designers add some within the modern design. Above the kitchen island, a drop ceiling gives dimension to the space, while a niche above the refrigerator cabinets showcases some of the homeowners' unique statues, while another niche creates a bar area for the homeowners between the kitchen and living room.
The homeowner's newly renovated kitchen is shown. The wall section dividing the kitchen and dining room has been removed, allowing a straight line of site through the whole first floor. The refrigerator now stands where the old sink previously was, and the old window closed up. A new slightly smaller kitchen island allows the same bar stools to fit comfortably in the narrow room. The sink has moved below the other back window. A clean white color scheme, updated stainless steel appliances and modern overhead lighting create a contemporary feel to the space without changing the room's size.
This kitchen was transformed from a dark space with a tiny island to an open, airy concept with a nine foot island and open shelving for a casual, modern restaurant feel.
In order to compensate for removing the original upper cabinets, custom-made stainless steel shelves and a full wall of storage were added. The storage wall contains extra-deep cabinets throughout and a cubby area for small appliances like the toaster. The cabinets next to the double wide commercial refrigerator are actually tall pull-outs for added storage. Family durable materials such as wrought iron and wood stools were used so nothing is too precious to enjoy.
You would expect a lot from the master suite closet of a $35 million dollar Beverly Hills home, and you’d get it here. More spacious than some people’s entire apartments, this closet features a flat-screen TV, a fireplace, bathroom fixtures, a small refrigerator and a grand leather chaise. An overhead skylight lets in natural lighting, while recessed lighting and a modern, crystal-draped chandelier provide illumination at night. Light wood floors and dark wood shelving give the feeling of a luxurious retail showroom rather than a closet, befitting this 15,500-square-foot mansion just a stone's throw from the luxurious Beverly Hills Hotel. Shelly and Avi Osadon, the husband and wife duo behind SEE Materials and SEE Construction, created the home.
