This modern black and white kitchen has marble backsplash, countertops, and work island, two prep sinks with contemporary gooseneck faucets, copper pendants, built in appliances, and a midcentury modern inspired dining table and chairs.
The island in the kitchen adds counter space and an extra sink, as well as a breakfast bar with seating for four. This addition not only gives the homeowners a casual dining option, but also increases the kitchen's storage and overall functionality.
The intricacy of this kitchen's breakfast area's wallpaper pattern underscores the space's Old World inspiration. Contemporary photographs serve as a sleek counterpoint and accent the black custom banquette seating.
Part of what makes this kitchen so visually interesting is the way designer Caitlin Murray paired moody black countertops with pastel pink cabinets. The contrast is especially striking when set against the crisp white walls.
Industrial-style metal stools sit at a large black island in this charming cottage kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances and beautiful white cabinets. As seen on HGTV's Elbow Room, the kitchen can be found in a converted barn that pairs rustic charm with modern furnishings.
Cooking is one of the homeowners' favorite shared hobbies, so when they decided to renovate, the kitchen became a priority. Walls were torn down to open up the space to the dining room and living room. Soapstone and marble grace the countertops, two-toned custom cabinetry is installed and Urban Electric pendant lights hang over the expansive island, lending both illumination and style to space.
This sleek, black kitchen is a perfectly elegant, stylish and functional Midcentury Modern space. The space has plenty of functional elements, for example the kitchen island and open shelving, whose clean lines contribute to the Midcentury Modern design of the space, while elements such as the gold-lined pendant lights help to add glamour and pizzaz.
Large windows and doors create an open kitchen and dining area that seamlessly blend the indoors and out. Exposed black structural beams are a strong contrast against the white walls of the space, while an oversized kitchen island and sleek dining area make the space both family friendly and perfect for entertaining.
This lovely kitchen uses its two islands in an intriguing way: one of the islands is for prep work and includes a farmhouse sink and lots of countertop and cabinet space. The second is more of an eating bar, with room for barstools on both sides.
The homeowners wanted an open concept home with plenty of natural light, so designers created a space that left each room open to the next, creating a clear line of sight through all of the home's common spaces. For natural light, they took advantage of the existing windows and skylight by using a black and white color palette that would reflect the light from the outside, giving the space a natural glow.
Kitchens serve as not only a place to prepare meals, but also a main gathering space in the home. Look through these pictures for great kitchen design ideas and be inspired to create a new look for your kitchen.
