In this basement bathroom from the 2014 HGTV Smart Home, the orange vanity and matching mirror are a great color accent against white walls and a white countertop, and pick up on orange wall accents and original art. Two mounted stainless steel lamps with small shades surround the mirror and match the stainless steal towel rack, faucet and drawer handles.
This contemporary kitchen features beautiful natural wood cabinets with built-in black stainless steel appliances tie together the black stair railings, island stools and cabinet hardware. The large island with breakfast bar has a drop in sink with traditional faucet. White tiled backsplash, recessed and pendant lights add additional warmth to the space.
Inside this furnished basement, a marble kitchen island with an under-mounted stainless steel sink and single faucet provides a place to make and eat meals, while a living room area includes a brown sofa and pair of upholstered chairs. Three pendant lights and simple recessed lighting illuminates the room.
This late 1980s kitchen is updated by painting the oak cabinets a soft warm gray, refinishing the hardwood floors and installing granite countertops, a new apron-front sink, a bridge faucet, wire pendant lights and stainless steel appliances. For a distinct look, an unconventional size of subway tile (2x8) with dark gray grout is used for the backsplash.
This double bowl kitchen sink is set in a gray marble countertop and features a two faucet set up. Floating shelves match the countertop for a light and cohesive look over the white subway tile backsplash. The sink nook is settled between stainless steel refrigerators, leaving the floor space open for maximum room.
The kitchen’s white apron-front sink has a streamlined and versatile farmhouse style. The single bowl sink with touchless faucet sits next to a stainless built-in dishwasher, surrounded by a polished quartz countertop. “I choose pure white because of all the elements that were going on, especially with the brick, the woods, the stainless steel, the paint and everything else going on,” says designer Tiffany Brooks. “I wanted to add calm there to the perimeters of the kitchen.”
The open expanse of the kitchen allows a peek into the butler's pantry on the left and the living room on the right. Gilt iron lanterns over the island pay homage to the homeowners' love of French New Orleans style and are a graceful complement to the stainless steel and nickel finishes of the faucets and appliances.
The sink base cabinet extends three inches farther than the other cabinets and has a bottom drawer to increase storage and functionality in this warm kitchen. A stainless steel sink and faucet sit beneath the window, which is decorated with a beige roman shade. Under-cabinet lighting illuminates the neutral granite countertops, providing a well-lit workspace for preparing meals.
Just because an area is on the small side, it still needs a designer's TLC! This small vanity in brown wood receives a contemporary boost with the addition of stainless steel in the mirror and countertop accessories as well as an updated look with the faucet choice. The look is clean, clever and uncluttered.
A 7' 10" long by 4' 11" wide island, topped with granite, serves as both island and dining area in this kitchen. Stainless steel fixtures, including a touchless pull-down faucet that operates with the wave of a hand, stand out against the muted granite countertop. A sleek custom fireplace and bubble chandelier add unique style to the space.
Chrome, nickel and stainless steel finishes will never go out of style, but warm metallics offer a fresh, modern look. For a quick update, consider replacing your lighting, faucet or cabinet hardware with products in gleaming brass or bronze like the ones in this chic space. “The updated satin brass cabinet hardware is really striking against the simple shaker cabinets,” says designer Elizabeth Lawson.
