Although many homeowners invest the majority of their home design budgets into their kitchens, it's the area of Chris' condo where he spent the least. By working with the brown and black tones of his existing granite countertops, he used color to give the otherwise basic, modern kitchen a personalized look. Glossy-black penny round tiles bought for $8 per square foot were used on all wall surfaces to add architectural interest and sheen. To help the pantry door visually recede, he had it painted the same shade of black as the tiles. Since the adjacent living room is wrapped in a black-brown grass cloth with a metallic backing, he carried the look over to the bar area to tie the two spaces together. All together, Chris' kitchen decor came to $1400.
The small pergola area gives this outdoor kitchen space a cafe-style feel. To create a one-of-a-kind outdoor space, a four-top burner, sink and brick oven were installed making this any homeowner's dream backyard kitchen.
Complete with swimming pool, spacious patio, landscaped pond and outdoor kitchen, this backyard is the ideal spot for outdoor entertaining. The stone kitchen area contains a grill, grand fireplace and bar area with iron barstools.
The stainless steel appliances coupled with the warm, neutral stone bar create a stark contrast. The kitchen includes a grill, side burner, warming drawer and refrigerator, creating the ultimate kitchen for entertaining.
