Mid-Century Modern Kitchen With Dark Blue Peninsula
The cabinets in this mid-century modern kitchen feature a shaker panel style for an updated feel. The upper cabinets were cumbersome in the space so open shelving was added which allowed for more style with counter to ceiling backsplash.
White cabinets will complement almost any decor you want to choose — now or 20 years from now. “To choose a style, consider the existing architecture of the home and how the cabinetry works visually within its environment,” says designer Tatiana Machado-Rosas of Jackson Design and Remodeling. “A raised panel is often a good choice for more traditional styles, while a Shaker style (shown here) works with a modern, simple design.”
Peninsula Adds Definition to Kitchen and Hallway Spaces
The homeowners wanted an open space in their newly remodeled home, but they didn't want their spaces to feel jumbled, so designers achieved this feel in the kitchen by using the cabinets to set the parameters for the space. To create this definition, a peninsula was added on the third "wall" of the kitchen, separating the it from the hallway without making either space feel too closed off, giving each area its own identity.
The Midcentury Modern kitchen features linear mosaic tile and a suspended sculptural chandelier. Custom chrome swivel barstools were upholstered in a metallic snakeskin patterned fabric for a fashionable statement at the bar.
This modern kitchen includes a mint green backsplash, dark wood cabinetry and simple brushed nickel hardware. A kitchen peninsula doubles as a sink area and casual dining space, complete with metal bar stools.

An open-plan kitchen is divided from the living space by a peninsula with a modern waterfall countertop, matching that of a central island.

White walls and floors provide a neutral backdrop, keeping the focus on the view.
Modern Kitchen with Blue Cabinets, Unique Lighting
Unique, dove-shaped pendants light up this kitchen peninsula in an artful way. The modern, open-plan space features bold blue lower cabinets that stand out against the stark white walls. Organic elements like the slatted wood ceiling and tribal carvings connect the home to its wooded site.
The original layout of this kitchen functioned in the home perfectly, so it was worth keeping around, but the style was stuck in the 1950's. The ceiling was raised to allow the kitchen appear larger and all the cabinets were given new fronts for a modern look with the shaker panel style. Painting the lower cabinets and peninsula dark blue really grounded the small space.
Modern Kitchen with Floating Kitchen Island and High, Exposed-beam Ceilings
It's tough to pick out the most impressive element in this large modern kitchen. The floating, cantilevered, concrete counter peninsula supported by a single beam? The high, painted wood ceilings with exposed beams? The unique wood block backsplash that also separates the kitchen from the dining room? You be the judge!
White ceramic tiles with a contrasting black grout set the tone for this modern black and white kitchen. A peninsula helps create space in the small kitchen, and bright yellow stools add a super fun pop of color.
