Simple Shaker-style cabinet door details, rustic hardware and open shelving give this kitchen an updated Craftsman feel. Two-toned cabinets in burgundy and gray resemble individual furniture pieces, while the polished oak floors complement the kitchen's timeless charm.
One of the hottest trends in kitchen design right now is “tuxedo” cabinetry — or two-tone cabinets, usually a darker color on the bottom units with a lighter shade or white on top. Black and white is a classic combo, but gray and white or blue and white create a similar, but softer effect, as in this kitchen. “The two-tone color scheme complemented the stained original pine floors in this over-100-year-old home. And going lighter on the upper cabinets kept this smaller sized kitchen feeling light and open, without sacrificing storage,” says designer Carla Aston. You can get this of-the-minute look with one can of paint — if your cabinets are already white, just paint the lower ones.
The homeowner wanted a modern bistro-inspired kitchen, which was achieved by thoughtful details, such as the subway tile inside the back of the upper cabinets. The two-toned cabinetry creates a striking contrast, while hardwood floors add warmth to the space. Built-in stainless steel appliances add to the contemporary feel of the space.
The sleek finish of these cabinets provides style and storage at the wet bar. The nook is a great size for staying out of the way, while still storing supplies and adding accent colors with fun decorations. The mix of neutral tones add depth to the space and complement the light neutral walls and darker neutral floor tile.
Upper white cabinets feature no hardware, while the lower maroon cabinets use metal pulls for easy access to kitchen utensils while cooking. A colorful, custom backsplash above the stovetop stands out amongst the surrounding white backsplash.
Polished black cabinets reflect natural light from the windows in this modern kitchen. A shiny tile backsplash separates the black cabinets from the lower woodgrain cabinets. Red-orange chairs in the adjoining dining area add a pop of color to the room.
A white farmhouse sink sits below a dark-framed window that opens and looks out over a garden area. White upper cabinets keep the space feeling bright and spacious while dark gray lower cabinets ground the room in a sleek design. A red-patterned rug brings a pop of color to the space for added character.
Contrasting white and light wood cabinets create visual interest in this streamlined kitchen. Open shelving blends with the wood cabinets and provides a display area for kitchen decor. A white tile backsplash and light countertops create a seamless white space for a crisp, clean design.
With an eye-catching gray-and-white glass tile backsplash, two-toned cabinets, stainless steel appliances and a unique floor pattern, this midcentury modern kitchen stays sleek and stylish. Countertops are mostly bare for a clutter-free look.
Light plays off the glass tile backsplash and stainless steel dishwasher and adds a sleek touch to this midcentury modern kitchen. White upper cabinets and gray lower ones bring additional visual interest to the space.
Rich colors fill this well-appointed kitchen. Flat-panel cabinetry with transom-window tops are done in two different finishes, one dark and one light. The slate-covered backsplash extends up the walls and covers the bar while the countertops are comprised of solid granite. Golden pendant lights illuminate the work surface and under-counter lights provides a glow to the underside of the bar.
