The beautiful finish on the cabinets in this contemporary open plan kitchen echoes both the hardwood floors and the exposed beams of the ceiling. One row of elegant pendant lights illuminates the kitchen island; a second sets apart the adjacent dining area.
In this open plan kitchen, pale woods and white surfaces create a clean, streamlined look that's at once sophisticated and functional. A long center island features a waterfall countertop, along with ample seating and smoky gray pendant task lighting. Glass-front cabinetry showcases dishwear and glassware that continues the room's neutral, whitewashed color scheme.
This mid-century modern home in Denver, Colo., features an open floor plan that combines the living space, dining room and kitchen. Sleek white cabinets with streamlined cabinet pulls set the scene for the contemporary kitchen, which leads into a chic dining room with modern chandelier.
The open floor plan creates a seamless transition between the family's most-used living spaces. Clean lines and state-of-the-art equipment make the kitchen the refined core of entertaining, while the dining room is defined by a custom-designed drop ceiling and an EcoSmart fireplace. Beyond the dining room is the living room, wet bar and frameless glass wine room, all which combine to create one sophisticated space perfect for entertaining.
To open up the kitchen to the rest of the living area meant losing a wall of cabinets. But the designers added lots of hidden storage to make up for it: A microwave is tucked inside the peninsula; a glass storage cabinet is built in on one wall; and there is a huge pull-out pantry next to the refrigerator.
Espresso-stained oak floors and dark kitchen cabinets create a striking contrast against the soft white island. The hub of the kitchen, the island provides a casual dining spot, two separate ranges for cooking, tons of counter space for prep and even storage for the homeowners' large collection of cookbooks.
The open floor plan creates a bright and airy atmosphere for this Dallas, Tex., home. Sleek neutral cabinetry is paired with creamy white countertops and professional-quality appliances in the streamlined kitchen, while metallic-upholstered barstools add a touch of glam.
