Though stainless appliances update this kitchen for the owners, a clay backsplash and terra cotta floors ensure that the space still speaks to the home's adobe architecture. Cabinets on either side of the stove provide plenty of storage, too.
On the other side of the room, guests have access to a small kitchen and dining area. Although the distressed wood cabinets, Spanish tile backsplash and farmhouse sink share a color palette, their different textures fill this corner with visual interest.
Off the outdoor living space is a complete kitchen and bar area with a dining spot, perfect for entertaining. The stone floor is chosen for a non-slip surface since family and friends will come in from the pool. Black countertops pairs create a striking contrast against the neutral stucco walls.

The owners of this elegant Spanish Colonial needed a kitchen that could meet the needs of their family's busy lifestyle, designers created a functional, stylish kitchen space that could do just that. A wide, galley style kitchen gives the homeowners plenty of counter space and storage space, while a connected dining space gives the family a place to enjoy their meals together. To finish off the space with an elegant look, the cabinets have an antique finish and the refrigerator has been covered in matching wood panels to give the appliance a more upscale look.
Stone tiles in warm shades ground the southwestern kitchen and dining area, while exposed wood beams bring a rustic note to the space. The entire area is designed as an entertaining hub off the swimming pool and outdoor living space.
Southwestern charm fills this family-friendly kitchen. Terracotta tiles ground the space, while exposed wood beams add a rustic note above. The large kitchen island doubles as a dining spot and prep area, and elaborate light fixtures bring Old World style to the room.
This Spanish Colonial was in need of a functional laundry room, so designers added one off the kitchen. By separating the kitchen and laundry room spaces, designers were able to create a functional laundry room and a sophisticated, functional kitchen with dining area.
The kitchen appliances disappear into this custom art wall, which adds vibrant color and energy to the non-traditional kitchen. The wall is clad in reclaimed barn wood, and artist Rob Stenberg painted the design on the panels. Touch-latch cabinetry keeps the wall looking more like an art installation than kitchen cabinetry. A custom hemlock block island looks time worn and was fabricated by the homeowner.
