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.
Bright and elegant, an arched window keeps this striking transitional kitchen bathed in natural light, illuminating sophisticated cabinetry, marble countertops and dark hardwood flooring. A farmhouse sink and coffered ceiling adds a bit of flair and creates a feeling of history.
Carrera marble subway tile for the backsplash is a luxurious splurge and adds classic elegance to the space. This kitchen has a hidden microwave and custom range hood design, as well as a new pantry area, for added storage.
Light blue cabinets combine with white countertops for a soothing, chic kitchen design. Geometric pendant lights add a contemporary nod, while gold is use for the fixtures and hardware throughout the space for a touch of glam.
This kitchen is equipped with a bulletin board, which is handy for keeping schedules, grocery notes and other reminders organized. Cabinets above and below provide extra storage, and food and water bowls are built-in for the family pet.
A retractable door enables this kitchen and dining space to open onto the deck. This genius design instantly turns the deck into a functional outdoor entertaining area with immediate access to the kitchen.
This beautiful kitchen has the clean lines and sleek look of a modern kitchen, but the warm, butcher block countertop on the kitchen island adds color to the space. The silver backsplash also helps to give this kitchen a touch of personality that isn't typically found in a modern design.
In the kitchen, an island gives the homeowners seating for four, while the butcher block countertop on the island helps to warm up the space. Windows on both walls allow in natural light that keep the space bright and give it a lovely view of the coast.
A stainless steel oven, range hood and refrigerator stand out against the white cabinets in this kitchen alcove. Beige tile backsplash complement the neutral granite counters, both adding texture to the space.
Palecek barstools upholstered with Lee Joffa fabric line the custom walnut island in this remodeled transitional kitchen. The metallic pendant lights hanging overhead bring unique charm and add color to the neutral space.
Two bold patterns and a pop of turquoise turn this neutral kitchen into a stylish, memorable space: Wide turquoise-and-white stripes sweep across the ceiling and the barstools are upholstered in black-and-white plaid.
Ebony black countertops bring stark contrast to this bright kitchen with crisp white cabinets. Chevron-patterned Roman shades create movement within the space and add a splash of contemporary style to the classic look.
Shades of gray (ahem) give cool sophistication to this renovated kitchen where the walls were pushed back to create a larger space. The white island freshens up the palette and the striking herringbone backsplash adds graphic punch.
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.
