White Shaker cabinetry, subway tile and stainless appliances add to the overall traditional feel of this renovated kitchen space. The large center island covered in a Caesar stone pebble is ideal for family gatherings, while the French doors provide gorgeous light.
Joanna Gaine's kitchen design included plenty of open shelving, further contributing to an open and airy feel in the redefined space. She also sidestepped her often preferred choice of subway tile backsplash in favor of handmade tile in muted blue and white, a favorite color combination of client Stacie Childers.
Don't be fooled by the rustic, exposed beams and chunky details in this farmhouse kitchen -- it's anything but rudimentary. High-end appliances, elegant task lighting and ample counter space are just what a skilled cook needs to make this kitchen sing. Thankfully, the extra-wide staircase will accommodate a stampede when the dinner bell rings!
In this kitchen makeover, designers decided to go basic (and affordable) with the cabinetry, replacing old doors and painting them bright white. The more luxurious touches were saved for the marble-and-limestone backsplash, new appliances and lighting. The pendant over the sink is vintage bronze with brass accents.
Part of this kitchen's visual interest comes from its layering of different woods: a dark wood floor and an island finished with oak. Over the island, an unusual vintage pendant light with a brass stripe around its middle is another eye catcher.
To add to this kitchen's practical features, the island was extended to provide more storage and was given a pull-out waste basket. The blue floral wallpaper spotted in the adjacent dining room is echoed by a similar patterned shade over the kitchen sink.
White Transitional Kitchen With Stainless Microwave
This kitchen doesn't come with a lot of natural light, so to make it feel brighter, the designer went with all-white cabinetry, quartz countertops and a light-colored backsplash. Wood floors and the island's oak finish bring in warmth.
Modern Kitchen Island with Metallic Accents and Frosted Glass
This large modern kitchen island is perfect for entertaining with ample seating for casual gatherings and full sit-down meals. A large workspace complete with stainless steel hood and range and full kitchen sink make meal preparation a visually appealing experience. The ample white countertop balances the metallic accents of the space and stylish metal and frosted glass cabinetry of the storage underneath lend to the overall design of the room.
A contemporary waterfall edge on the island is crisp and clean, setting the tone for this modern, yet homey space. Slatted wood pendants provide task lighting and complement the warm wood tones of the cabinetry. Bold blue barstools provide an accent color that's repeated throughout the open plan living area.
Modern Open Plan Kitchen with Cozy Breakfast Banquette
This open concept kitchen, dining and living space allows for inclusive cooking and dining thanks to a cozy banquette nestled into one corner. Wood cabinets extend to the ceiling to maximize storage, while a pair of slatted wood pendant lights provide task lighting above the island. Pops of teal and yellow continue from the kitchen into the wide-open living area.
As seen on HGTV’s Property Brothers, this kitchen’s cabinets were refreshed with a deeper, richer stain, and small mosaic tiles in teal were installed as a colorful, contrasting backsplash. A hanging cage pendant light over the sink creates an interesting focal point.
Extra-Long Kitchen Island in Neutral Craftsman Kitchen
Three simple pendant lights illuminate the long island in this Arts and Crafts-inspired kitchen. Neutral cabinetry is complemented by granite countertops, while a stainless steel hood above the Wolf range adds a contemporary element to the space.
Airy, Transitional Kitchen With White Subway Tiles and White Marble Countertops
Wide windows with Craftsman styling shed a lot of light on this transitional kitchen. The designer's top goal was to brighten the space. The windows not only bring in loads of natural light, but they also offer a great view of the garden outside.
