A super long island is the key to fitting a quantity of people into this kitchen. Loads of space is available for eight durable Tolix stools in a navy blue accent. A pantry tucked just round the corner keeps this kitchen clean and neat.
This bright, airy kitchen features a large island with a sink and plenty of prep space. The island also features a waterfall edge counter in an L-shape, perfect for family to gather around the island to share a meal. A gorgeous chandelier hangs over the island. A wood ceiling beam is left natural to draw the eye and compliments the wood accent on the range hood.
The beach-blue 6-foot island, capped in white quartz countertops, serves as both workspace and casual-chic dining area in the kitchen of HGTV Smart Home 2013. Pendant lights hang above the island to provide functional statement pieces.
Light blue walls and ceiling in this spacious kitchen transition beautifully into the adjacent dining room, which is painted the same color. A large blue island with a white quartz countertop features a built-in sink and hidden dishwasher for easy clean-up after meals.
Benjamin Moore's 'Blue Suede Shoes' paint adds a fun twist to the cool contemporary coastal vibe to the kitchen in this New Hampshire beach home. Shiplap-style paneling helps conceal some of drawer seams in the cabinetry, and open shelving continues those lines while balancing the weight of the blue to keep the space feeling open and airy. Thick countertops were a splurge for the homeowners but were balanced by lower-cost touches like the decorative lighting.
Two wall cabinets for dish and glass storage are balanced on either side of the casement windows. A combined pantry and display storage space is located on the back wall behind the island areas. The two-tone cabinetry is complemented by Blue Celeste marble tops and iridescent glass tile backsplash. A spectacular ocean view serves as the perfect backdrop for this breathtaking kitchen. The room is completed with a wood-paneled ceiling and a large kitchen island.
Change up your backsplash. A new backsplash, especially one with a unique tile shape, gives the whole kitchen an instant makeover, such as in this 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Design Competition winning space by Cheryl Kees Clendenon of In Detail Interiors. Choose tiles that are on sale or discontinued to save some money, and ask the store to check other locations to make sure you can get as many as you need.
This spacious eat-in kitchen features an L-shaped breakfast bar complete with built-in glass front cabinets and teal leather stools arranged on one side. Glass pendant lights hang from the white coffered ceiling, while natural wood floors complete the look of the space.
Pretty in white! This coastal-style home brings the brightness of the shore and clouds into the kitchen, creating a space that feels clean, cool and airy. A key element in the space is the gorgeous, white-and-gray Carrera marble, which graces the huge kitchen island, countertops and even the backsplash.
The kitchen has a clean, coastal feel in a transitional way. Designers added color in kitchen seating areas, notably by including simple navy blue Tolix stools. Subtle periwinkles, blues and seaglass tones dominate the kitchen area, even repeating the seaglass color on the island lighting, bringing in a pop of color in the island area.
Switching out the window treatments in your kitchen can be a super quick and easy way to change up your decor. Have a decoration you’ve always loved, but the color just didn't go with the rest of your kitchen? Find a window treatment that brings that color in, or try something in your same kitchen colors with a new pattern. In this 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Competition winning kitchen, designer Cheryl Kees Clendenon installed a floral shade with grays and yellows to match the tile work and dishes already on display.
The gleaming white kitchen has a L-shaped island seating as well as a round glass dining table with seating for four. The large windows allow for amazing ocean views from the kitchen and dining spaces.
Horizontal lines carried through the cabinetry, tile work and floating shelves unify the design elements of this California coastal-style kitchen. Benjamin Moore's "Blue Suede Shoes" provides the bold color to the cabinets and island base and is balanced by the sleek white tiles on the backsplash behind the stove and around the windows and the white paneled, vaulted ceiling.
