Toile wallpaper and an ornate chandelier are among the glamorous details in this formal eat-in kitchen. Framed by a white mantel, the range boasts a patterned, gold backsplash. Pink Roman shades and pink chair cushions coordinate in this kitchen with decorative flair.
Inspired by the clients' ideas and preferences, this transitional kitchen remodel is packed with custom features. They include a spacious island – designed for prepping and entertaining, dark chocolate cabinetry, light granite countertops for contrast, built-in Sub-Zero refrigeration and stainless pendants. The full height granite backsplash provides a dramatic look and is practical for easy cleaning.
White and wood details give this small eating nook character and charm. The dining table's white tabletop provides a stark contrast against the rich wood legs, which have wheel casters to make furniture arranging a cinch.
If existing cabinets are of good quality, in excellent working condition and the layout functions well, the most affordable option is to simply paint or re-stain them. Another alternative, refacing, involves installing a new veneer on the exterior of the cabinet box and replacing the doors and drawer fronts, and should be handled by a professional.
The patina of the terra cotta backsplash tiles and stone floor contrast with the modern range and classic stainless steel island. The vintage French lab stools used as barstools help add to the layered and curated look of the space.
Three simple pendant lights illuminate the long island in this Arts and Crafts-inspired kitchen. Neutral cabinetry is complemented by granite countertops, while a stainless steel hood above the Wolf range adds a contemporary element to the space.
The open design of this contemporary kitchen paired with a white and neutral color scheme give this room a very spacious look and feel. A large curved island allows for extra seating and eating in tall cushioned bar chairs, while a dining area to the side offers a more intimate dining feel. The dark dining table is a beautiful contrast to the bright whites and neutrals of the space.
An L-shaped island serves as both a prep area and breakfast bar that also lends itself to entertaining and conversation. Distressed white cabinets keep with the kitchen's traditional look while metal bar chairs and pendant lights give it a contemporary edge.
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.
