In this kitchen's renovation, an unused closet became the perfect spot for the fridge, providing more counter space and cabinet storage. The opening in the wall to the left of the fridge allowed natural light to filter in from an unseen window.
The modern kitchen uses sleek stainless steel throughout, including the massive center island. The island is hub of the kitchen with a built-in sink and range, as well as space for dining with red-accented wire-frame bar stools. Lush greenery surrounding the home fills the visual space, courtesy of floor-to-ceiling windows.
According to Remodeling Magazine’s 2015 Cost vs. Value Report, there’s one remodeling project that actually returns at least 100% of your investment through added home value: adding a steel entry door like this one from Pella. Besides its aesthetic appeal, a new steel front door can improve your home’s security and energy efficiency as well. But you won’t be satisfied with your door’s performance unless it’s plumb, level and square, so installation is a job for a pro unless you have serious carpentry experience.
A large stainless steel island cuts a modern edge to this chic kitchen. The space is grounded by large gray tile flooring, while floor-to-ceiling windows allow plenty of natural light. Bold red on the barstools and chairs provide a burst of color in the space.
This transitional kitchen has it all with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a breakfast bar and a TV over the oven. Color is easily added and changed through window treatments and accessories.
This breakfast nook features steel-blue banquette seating with dark gray cushions and pink floral pillows. Pink bows on the white window valance and the black and crystal chandelier lend a romantic touch to the space.
This laundry room makes utilitarian tasks ever so much more inviting with its plentiful natural light and well-thought-out design. Ample countertops give room for folding. There's also a sink, an in-wall ironing machine and storage for cleaning supplies. Sleek stainless steel countertops reflect the sunlight from the clerestory windows.
The front facade shows the Cor-Ten steel panels that wrap the second floor of this home. The panels, which were painted chocolate brown to hide the rust stains typically associated with weathered steel, have different types of bends and various amounts of circles. The type of space or wall behind the panel determined the type of panel used. If there was a window that needed light and some privacy, a panel with more holes was used, but if there was a wall of stucco, a panel with fewer holes was used.
Light from the track lighting, pendant lights and clerestory windows bounces off the stainless steel countertops and appliances in this midcentury modern kitchen. Soft, neutral shades of green tile add color to the room without overpowering the design. Frosted glass cabinets top the lower light wood cabinets.
This transitional kitchen presents the clean lines of two stainless steel refrigerators flanking cream cabinetry for beautiful form and function. The two glass front cabinets soften the design and blend nicely with the window over the sink.
The amenities in this kitchen make the space perfect for the homeowners and their growing family. A large kitchen island adds storage, counter space and additional seating, while state of the art appliances such as an oven, convection oven, microwave and gas stove make meal prep easy.
