Erin's design plan called for reconfiguring the kitchen layout, adding a refrigerator enclosure, removing the peninsula and creating a new center island, with bar seating, positioned lengthwise in the space.
By removing three of the kitchen's walls, designers opened up the kitchen to the rest of the home. Now, whoever is preparing a meal or enjoying one at the breakfast bar can be included in the action in the rest of the home.
Another level of visual interest and contrast is added to this midcentury modern kitchen, courtesy of its light brown flooring. The patterned tiles stand out compellingly against the two-toned gray and white cabinets.
Even though the kitchen space is small, designers wanted to create an open feel without sacrificing functionality, so they added a slender kitchen island with intuitive cabinet design and a long countertop for plenty of storage and prep space.
A mixture of pendant lights featuring matte black finishes and copper accents bring a modern, industrial twist to this sleek kitchen design. A row of bar chairs at the island creates cozy eat-in space in the natural light from the sliding glass doors. Neutral tones elevate the calm, timeless feel of the design.
Go for a high-gloss effect. A smaller group of gray Ikea cabinets, used in an Atlanta mid-century modern kitchen, gives a steel sheen to the space, which was previously designed by Brian Patrick Flynn as his personal residence.
In the kitchen, warm, walnut cabinets blend with a beautiful Moroccan rug to bring the Midcentury Modern design to life, while the white Luche de Luna countertops and large over-sink window help to make the space feel large and open.
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.
This minimalist kitchen features white and medium grain wood cabinets paired with lighter hardwood floors. A stainless steel microwave and wine cooler are built into the cabinets, while interior windows line one wall, allowing a peek into the adjacent living room.
Smooth woodgrain cabinetry and island base showcase a beautiful, warm tone against the white walls and gray tile flooring. A skylight allows natural light to flood the space, keeping it bright and refreshing. Diamond-like pendant lights hang over the white countertop of the island and white leather bar chairs with stainless steel base and built-in foot rests. A turquoise backsplash adds a bright pop of color to the room.
New windows and the yellow tile countertop and backsplash each come with black trim, offering a bit of a modern edge to this retro style kitchen. The stars of the space are the brand-new retro-inspired stove and sink, which help complete the 1950s feel of the space.
