Contemporary Kitchen With Stainless Hood Above Island
A stainless steel vent hood hangs above the island stove in this contemporary kitchen, and stainless steel appliances are built into the sleek woodgrain cabinets. Heavy drapes peel back to allow natural light and bright color from the outdoor plants to stream into the neutral-hued space.
This gorgeous kitchen design by David Stimmel features dining for four at the beautiful, dark wood dining table. Adjacent to the dining area, you'll find a wet bar with mirrored cabinets that's perfect for entertaining guests.
Toile wallpaper and an ornate chandelier are among the glamorous details in this formal eat-in kitchen. Framed by a white mantel, the range boasts a patterned, gold backsplash. Pink Roman shades and pink chair cushions coordinate in this kitchen with decorative flair.
Blue Cabinets, Marble Backsplash Complement Kitchen Island
To make the kitchen look cohesive, designer Caitlin Murray matched the bold, black marble backsplash to the island. The cabinets coordinate with the island's blue base as well, further tying the room together.
Large Dark Wood Kitchen Island With White Barstools
Inspired by the clients' ideas and preferences, this transitional kitchen remodel is packed with custom features. They include a spacious island – designed for prepping and entertaining, dark chocolate cabinetry, light granite countertops for contrast, built-in Sub-Zero refrigeration and stainless pendants. The full height granite backsplash provides a dramatic look and is practical for easy cleaning.
White and wood details give this small eating nook character and charm. The dining table's white tabletop provides a stark contrast against the rich wood legs, which have wheel casters to make furniture arranging a cinch.
Built-in benches and a small table make this space perfect for quick, informal meals or evening homework. Natural light from two large windows eliminates the need for a bulky light fixture. The benches are topped by vivid chevron-patterned cushions, which add a nice dash of color to the neutral space.
If existing cabinets are of good quality, in excellent working condition and the layout functions well, the most affordable option is to simply paint or re-stain them. Another alternative, refacing, involves installing a new veneer on the exterior of the cabinet box and replacing the doors and drawer fronts, and should be handled by a professional.
The patina of the terra cotta backsplash tiles and stone floor contrast with the modern range and classic stainless steel island. The vintage French lab stools used as barstools help add to the layered and curated look of the space.
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.
