Beautiful upper and lower cabinets offer tons of storage, while a beautiful live-edge countertop coordinates with the warm hardwood floor in this neutral kitchen. A combination of recessed and under-cabinet lighting really helps this transitional kitchen shine.
Instead of remodeling your whole kitchen, just refurbish your countertop to add a dramatic sweep of color, says Erika Woelfel, VP of color for Behr Paints. This neutral kitchen gets a pick-me-up from Behr’s Mountain Blueberry paint on the island topper (plus Marsh Grass on the upper row of cabinets). Woelfel recommends using a high-gloss or semi-gloss enamel for kitchen surfaces.
Although the color palette is predominantly neutral, this traditional kitchen brings in visual interest via a compelling mix of materials: dark brown wood cabinets, granite countertops and a mosaic tile backsplash.
Lighted glass door display cabinets top the built in white cabinetry for a sophisticated decorative touch in the timeless traditional look. A range hood blends with the cabinets over a neutral tile backsplash. A long kitchen island is lit by a trio of stainless steel pendant lights complimenting the stainless steel barstools with black leather seats.
Don’t underestimate the power of a good laminate countertop. The style factor of laminates has skyrocketed in recent years, and the availability of different patterns and finishes makes them a good option for many looking to redo their countertops. If you want to budget down from engineered quartz, check out Formica’s Silver Quartzite. This stone-look laminate will serve any kitchen well as a strong neutral design force and a major player in making the kitchen a worry-free, fun, and functional place to be.
Wood countertop on the long kitchen island serves as a beautiful centerpiece in this neutral, traditional kitchen. The light neutral color palette and hardwood flooring creates a timeless and classic design making this kitchen functional and stylish.
A skylight shines over the kitchen island complete with neutral granite countertop and built in wine refrigerator. An open archway connects the kitchen to the next room for a spacious and open design. Built in wood cabinets blend the two rooms together.
Neutral cabinets and stone countertops give this kitchen a timeless look. A natural stone backsplash adds subtle texture to balance the smooth finishes. Stainless steel track lighting and unique glass pendant lights bring a contemporary touch to the room.
The design challenge for this contemporary kitchen was to blend the tones with the desired neutral tones that would open the space. This was achieved by adding new backsplash tile and quartz countertops.
