This beautiful gray and white kitchen gets an update from designer Lindsay Chambers, who added contemporary touches to an otherwise country design. The cabinets are country, but the appliances and chevron tile backsplash scream contemporary.
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.
For a quick update to an existing basic wood island from Ikea, DIY blogger Dena Stormer simply painted the base and legs of her island white to match the rest of her kitchen. Then she added a vintage metal file cabinet for her recipes to the shelf below, along with retro kitchen accessories.
The kitchenette is a combination of high gloss white and gray cabinets, white countertop, chrome pulls and faucet, stainless steel fridge and walnut soffit for warmth. The recessed can lights have a dark bronze trim to disappear into the ceiling.
In a small kitchen like this one, every inch of countertop and storage space is essential. To make more of both, the peninsula was extended and the soffits removed. White cabinets, backsplash and counters brighten up the look.
Whether wood or metal, antique or new, tables, chests and other furniture can provide prep space and storage just as well as a built-in island. This mobile, expandable island came from an antiques market in Atlanta for decorator Clinton Rice's townhome. An island like this is visually interesting and gives so much versatility for food prep and entertaining; plus if you need more room in your kitchen, you can move it to the side.
With function in mind, this midcentury modern kitchen is simple and sleek. Multicolor pental quartz backsplash and blue shaker cabinets are all the decoration it needs, which keeps the counter space open for storage and food prep.
This charming kitchen offers plenty of style and practicality. The solid-surface countertops and butcher-block island offer ample prep space, while stainless-steel appliances make it efficient. The white recessed-panel cabinets provide lots of storage and style.
Designer Lindsay Chambers sought to update a classic kitchen with an industrial-country approach. The chevron patterned backsplash adds drama and depth to the small space, while white and gray cabinets give the room a rural vibe. And who wouldn't love the wrought iron and repurposed wood barstools?
