If your kitchen tends to be a gathering space, you should give guests a comfortable, out-of-the-way spot to sit. This breakfast nook is a nod to '50s and '60s style with its clean lines and geometric shapes.
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.
The open design of this kitchen gives it a spacious feel and good light distribution. Woodgrain cabinets compliment the color of the hardwood floor. White countertop with a shine finish provides a polished look and reflective brightness. A blue tile backsplash adds fresh color, and cream bar stools create a small eat in area.
The designers at Brio Interior Designs transformed a small, cluttered kitchen into a Midcentury masterpiece. Walls were demolished to create an open concept concept design throughout the house. Large bottom cabinets replaced the metal shelving the couple was using for storage, and their outdated appliances were replaced with state of the art stainless steel ones. Designers then added details that show off the couple's personality, such as the red patterned rug that adds a bit of flair, while modern light fixtures help the large windows over the countertop to provide light to the kitchen.
White quartz countertops are a bright finishing touch for this midcentury modern kitchen, enhancing the room’s open and airy feel. The designer maintained the space’s original curved layout and incorporated a raised bar between the kitchen and family room to define the two areas.
Horizontal cabinet woodgrain and a backsplash wall made with long subway tiles compliment the long, spacious design of this kitchen. A blood orange accent wall pops at the back of the room. Recessed lighting and the use of white throughout the space makes for a bright and open look.
A 13' long island with a kitchen sink, prep sink, dishwasher and microwave provides plenty of space to prep, cook and clean on one side, while a breakfast bar provides seating for five on the other side for eating and entertaining.
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.
