High-tech stainless steel appliances, streamlined white cabinets and clean-lined countertops combine to create a contemporary kitchen filled with luxe touches. The all-white palette and large window lend the space a light, bright and airy vibe. A slab of Blue de Savoie marble serves as a backsplash as well as a focal point, while boldly colored accents add flair.
Designers wanted the kitchen to be both elegant and functional, so they continued the modern look into this space. Clean lines and sharp edges keep the room looking clean and neat, while the blue-gray tile and rich hardwood floor make the space warm and inviting. To accommodate the homeowners' everyday as well as entertaining needs, designers included plenty of prep and storage space with counters and cabinets on two walls of the space and a large kitchen island with an eat in option. To add to the elegance of the space, designers added stainless steel appliances and stainless steel pendant lights, giving the room a little extra sparkle that highlights the natural light that comes in through the door and windows.
Unable to completely remove a load bearing wall to create an open floor plan, Sarah Richardson widened a doorway and cut a large serving window out of the wall between this kitchen and living room to create a semi-transitional space. She updated the kitchen with a gray subway tile backsplash, new countertops and stainless steel appliances for a chic, contemporary look. As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential.
Smooth white cabinets create a full wall of storage in this modern kitchen and continue out over the countertop wrapping the kitchen with storage. Windows above the countertop and over the cabinet structures flood the room with bright, natural light for a gorgeous glow. Dark, matte hardwood grounds the design. Simple silver grated chairs create an eat-in area at the bar and match the stainless steel range hood above.
Fixer Upper Hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines turned the once disastrous room into a bright, clean kitchen with new cabinets, wood floors, Carrera marble countertops and light gray paint with white trim. The old drop ceiling was removed, adding height to the room, and a wooden support beam was added. A subway tile backsplash, floating wood shelves and stainless steel appliances were also installed. Client Clint Harper added the finishing touches to the kitchen by making a beautiful island and vent hood out of reclaimed wood, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
The kitchen space was created to blend into the open dining and living spaces effectively and efficiently. The kitchen boasts beautiful views of the outdoors through large windows. Adding subtle color variants to the backsplash incorporates small pops of color that are more effective in creating the minimalist and modern look. Red stove knobs add a small but more vibrant color element to decorate the stainless steel appliance and surrounding white cabinetry.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah transformed a dirty and cramped kitchen into a contemporary eat-in space fit for a chef. To achieve the look, she installed a gray subway tile backsplash, new modern cabinetry, vein cut floor tile and a sleek stainless steel gas stove and vent hood. A cozy breakfast nook is nestled in front of the bright bay windows for casual family dining.
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.
To make way for a large walk-in shower, the existing tub was removed. Rectangular porcelain tile with a bamboo effect is installed vertically to add visual height in the shower. A contemporary shower panel with contrasting natural bamboo and sleek stainless steel creates an eye-catching display. The glass block window streams natural light through the door-less shower entrance and can be seen from the bedroom.
This modern kitchen remodel features a deep brown cabinetry paired with a neutral tile backsplash and granite countertops. Incorporating an eating area into the kitchen island eliminates the need for a separate kitchen table.In this case, the unusual shape of the kitchen island compensates for misaligned window placement. The unique countertop is made from Brazilian Mascarelo granite. Stainless steel appliances and metal kitchen stools add upgraded and coordinating features to the space.
This kitchen has been reconfigured to take advantage of the new open concept floor plan. A large kitchen island provides more counter space, as well as doubles as a kitchen table with stools running underneath. The sliding door was reduced to a sink under the window, allowing the galley kitchen to run along the whole wall. Stainless steel appliances, pendant and recessed lighting, and a neutral color scheme create a clean modern look to the kitchen. New flooring was added throughout the whole first floor.
The designers at Brio Interior Designs transformed a small, cluttered kitchen into a Midcentury masterpiece. Walls were demolished to create an open concept concept design throughout the house. Large bottom cabinets replaced the metal shelving the couple was using for storage, and their outdated appliances were replaced with state of the art stainless steel ones. Designers then added details that show off the couple's personality, such as the red patterned rug that adds a bit of flair, while modern light fixtures help the large windows over the countertop to provide light to the kitchen.
Island construction is essentially simple; it’s a project most experienced woodworkers could manage fairly easily. Designer Brooke Norsworthy took on the project herself, building an oversized island with seating for four. She explains her process: “Using Ana White’s kitchen cabinet plans, I built these cabinets by hand using PureBond plywood with poplar trim. The island consists of four cabinets: two 24" bases and two 21" bases. I made the frame for the counter using plywood and 2x4s and took it to my local metal shop to be wrapped in stainless steel. I screwed the legs directly into the countertop just before I glued down the metal, creating a very spacious 4' x 8' kitchen island.”
