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.
As seen on HGTV's Renovation Raiders, this kitchen’s rich, dark cabinetry offsets the white quartz countertops and white subway tile backsplash. Sugar and flour containers in soft green add a touch of color to this classic yet updated space.
This spacious kitchen renovation included the addition of a working kitchen island, providing a spot for food preparation or casual dining at the single wooden stool area. Gray quartz countertops and white Shaker style cabinets are used throughout the space.
While a beautiful polished quartzite was chosen as the countertop of the kitchen island, a more durable quartz was chosen for the surrounding perimeter countertops. The quartz prevents any spills from turning into stains and wears well throughout its use.
This beautiful kitchen remodel included the addition of a spacious breakfast bar with taupe quartz countertops. Dark wooden stools line one side of the breakfast bar, providing room for casual dining, while white glass pendant lights hang above.
Two countertops? Twice as nice! A center island topped with quartz by Cambria is a functional focal point in this kitchen by Denise Wenacur of DW Design & Decor, and the countertops around the room’s perimeter are solid black granite. “That mix – and those materials – represent the most current countertop trends,” Wenacur says.
Cherry wood strip flooring, curved and bent in a pattern matching the radial form of the residence, is a spectacular example of the attention to detail in this modern kitchen. High-end finishes, like the Cambria quartz countertops, offsets the industrial elegance of the cast-in-place structural concrete wall. Floating storage echoes the elevated kitchen islands and influences the open feel.
The vertical lines in this contemporary kitchen are emphasized by clean, colorful modern artwork. Shaker-style cabinets maximize storage and blend with the white walls, allowing the artwork to pop. Quartz countertops are low-maintenance and feature a thick profile that gives the space an industrial touch.
This kitchen features a white farmhouse sink, arabesue pattern tile backsplash and white quartz countertops. The white upper cabinets tie in with the quartz countertops keeping the space bright and airy, while the dark stained lower cabinets have a dramatic effect.
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.
Muted gray cabinets pair with black quartz countertops, while contrasting white quartz countertops top the 13-foot-long island. Quartz countertops offer the advantage of resistance to staining and are essentially maintenance free. A well-lit kitchen relies on sophisticated and layered lighting from multiple sources. In this case that includes recessed spots for dramatic accent, industrial-style pendants for concentrated task lighting and a trio of rustic sconces over the sink.
