Light Kitchen With Contemporary Style
Before its renovation, this kitchen was stuck in the '80s. Thankfully, the interior designers at Hyde Evans Design combined beautiful and functional cabinetry, soft lighting and walnut floors for an updated look that is simply stunning.
Backlighting plays a crucial role in modernizing classic elements of this open floor plan kitchen. It's used in the quartz countertops and backsplash, as well as above the stainless steel range hood to highlight traditional moldings.
Contrasting neutral colors and a glass backsplash create an energetic warmth while maintaining a light and airy feeling in this kitchen. The island contains just a few cabinets in order to visually open the space.
Back-lit fused glass provides a warm glow to contrast with the metal detail in contemporary kitchen. White cabinets are paired with black countertops, while a neutral stone backplash brings rustic texture to the space.
A small kitchen requires a combination of task and atmospheric lighting. To counteract the bluish cast of fluorescent lighting and add drama, install pendant lights in the eating area, incandescent lighting underneath upper cabinets and incandescent spot lighting above cabinetry. Lighting can also be installed under base cabinetry so it shines down onto the toe plate.
Several light fixtures highlight the wood and tile elements of this craftsman style kitchen. The kitchen features a farm sink, new island, stainless steel appliances and a range hood for the stove, as seen on Fixer Upper.
Designer Jennifer Allison shortened the height of the upper cabinets to improve sight lines, extended the peninsula and infused the kitchen with much lighter colors. Thermador appliances, Silestone counters, Houzer sink and Delta Touch-free faucet added to the modern flair.
A wood support beam and white glass-front cabinets make this a warm, classic space. The glass-front cabinets provide a highlight feature, while the upper and lower cabinetry lights create the perfect ambiance.
White tile flooring, white walls, and exceptional recessed lighting create a bright, open look in this stylish kitchen. Sleek drawer pulls and stainless steel accents add to the room's contemporary style.
This contemporary kitchen features an extended countertop for added seating and easier food prep. White upper cabinets, countertops and backsplash give the space a clean, modern look. Under-cabinet lighting, as well as ambient lighting and an industrial pendant light illuminate the space.
