Bright Transitional Kitchen Makes Most of Natural Light
A full-scale renovation transformed this formerly dark and cold California kitchen to a warm, light-filled, inviting space. New windows overlook the gardens, and recessed and under-cabinet lighting illuminate the Calacatta marble countertops.
Wide casings and craftsman styling on this pair of windows blend with clean-lined white cabinetry and vintage-inspired hardware to give this California kitchen an elegant, yet casual air. Dark accents on the peninsula and built-ins create contrast, as does the dark wood bookshelf.
Stainless Steel, Calacatta Marble in Transitional Kitchen
Stainless steel appliances, including a stainless steel hood and backsplash above the Viking range, add to the streamlined look of this transitional California kitchen. Creamy Calacatta marble countertops and white subway tile mix well with dark cabinetry.
This once-dark and dated California kitchen is now bright and airy thanks to new Craftsman windows that overlook the garden and ample recessed lights. White custom cabinets paired with a dark-stained peninsula and built-ins provide pleasing contrast and Calacatta marble countertops look sleek with the white subway tile backsplash.
A large island and custom corner banquette offer casual dining options in this transitional kitchen. Gray tiled walls provide welcome contrast with white cabinetry, while the blue-gray island adds a welcome dose of color.
The mix of materials on the countertop and along the backsplash work because the palette is the same rich orange, similar to the Benjamin Moore metallic wall paint, and offset by a large expanse of off-white linen painted cabinetry.
Contemporary Kitchen With Glass Tile Backsplash & Matte Black Flooring
Built-in lighting in the bar top overhang reflects on the shiny countertops in this attractive, contemporary kitchen. Glass tile runs horizontally to create a textural backsplash above the counter. Stainless steel appliances and white cabinets form the long shape, and a black matte floor finishes the look.
Matching wood floors and cabinets give this chef kitchen a rich, organic feel. The Mediterranean style of the rest of the home is brought in via the pendant lights and cutout detailing along the cabinets' top edge.
