The contemporary kitchen has storage to the max. Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry flanks the refrigerator, while sleek cabinets border the kitchen walls and are clad in chic gray countertops. A pot rack keeps cookware handy, while mosaic tile backsplash makes a stunning statement in the space.
Designed to be a chef's kitchen, the layout of the space keeps everything needed within reach. A pot rack has pans and ladles right next to the professional-quality stove, which features a pot filler and fryer. Sleek gray cabinets combine with stainless steel countertops and backsplash for contemporary style.
The saw-tooth roof design and the low-slung furniture makes this great room feel open and spacious. Open metal shelves suspended from the kitchen ceiling eliminate wall cabinets--this allows for more windows and a more open feeling everywhere. The open metal work of the pot rack, the windows and the bar stools create a light, airy feeling.
This spacious, country style kitchen doubles as a casual office space with a built-in, wood desk that sits in front of stunning bay windows. A metal pot rack hangs over a marble-topped kitchen island creating a lovely focal point while also adding storage space. Bright white cabinets with black hardware complement the black and white, plaid striped walls nicely.
Tiny kitchens can feel claustrophobic when cabinets are towering overhead. Many cooks can't reach what's in them and the overall feeling is boxy and closed in. Get organized and trade the top cupboards for open storage. Consider shelving, pot racks and magnetic knife or spice holders instead. Your kitchen will look more spacious and serve up display space for your favorite dishes, shiny pots and pans, or artwork.
Sleek and spare but with warm brown accents, this modern kitchen is a design masterpiece. The wood paneled cabinets hide clever storage solutions such as pull-out spice racks and deep drawers for pots and pans.
Calacatta gold marble countertops and backsplash set the neutral tone for this transitional kitchen’s monochromatic color palette. A pot filler and built-in spice rack adds functionality to the stylish cooking space.
After giving thought to the cabinets' exterior, turn some attention to their intended use and interior features. "It used to be that we would place cabinetry in the room and make it functional," says Al. "Now every cabinet has a purpose." There are pullout drawers for pots and pans, oversize drawers for baking sheets and even high-tech under-counter cooling drawers that keep beverages and snacks within easy reach. Accessories like lazy Susans, built-in spice racks, drawer organizers and other cabinet extras make the kitchen a much more efficient and enjoyable place. Photo courtesy of GE Monogram
