For this kitchen's fun stove backsplash, designer Leanne Ford stays within the neutral gray-and-white color palette, but adds visual interest by layering cross-shaped tiles on top of the wood paneling. The lower half of the paneling is painted dark gray for more contrast, as seen on HGTV's Restored by the Fords.
White walls gives this kitchen a bright and clean finish. Floating shelves create decorative storage over the white tile backsplash while a frosted glass cabinet and lower drawers add concealed storage. A natural wood island doubles as an eat in area with contemporary neutral bar stools.
The aqua blue cabinets in this country-inspired kitchen instantly cheer you up. The white countertops, kitchen island and subway tile backsplash enhance the fresh, airy feel. Pink and yellow accents keep the room from feeling too washed out.
Quartz countertops are gaining popularity in the kitchen for their durability, easy maintenance and attractive colors and patterns. In this kitchen, white quartz countertops and dove white countertops are paired with a live-edge walnut bar-top for gorgeous contrast.
When updating a historic home in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles, Sabine Klingler Kane designed the kitchen around her clients’ butcher-block island. “My client had the island long before we started the remodel,” she says. “It looks perfectly vintage, but it is actually a reproduction made from reclaimed wood. It is ideal for their young daughter as she does not need to be careful with her crayons and spilling food. It has drawers on both sides, and wine storage underneath as well as shelves for cook books. But the best thing is: Two compartments on top have been outfitted with electrical outlets to plug in tablets, laptops, phones and small appliances. It also has towel bars and a bottle opener attached to it — it is not only great looking, but also totally practical and functional.”
Beautiful light blue upper and lower cabinets provide ample storage in this country kitchen. A black table in the center serves as a buffet and also allows seating for four. Stainless steel appliances and a gray country-style pendant complete the stylish design.
