The homeowners wanted a texture-rich space with a simple feel, so designers set out to achieve that goal by using cabinets that were a mix of wood and back painted glass. Black granite was added to the countertops, backsplash and range hood. This creates a sleek, streamlined design for the heart of this sophisticated home.
Stylish, Elegant, Functional Midcentury Modern Kitchen
This sleek, black kitchen is a perfectly elegant, stylish and functional Midcentury Modern space. The space has plenty of functional elements, for example the kitchen island and open shelving, whose clean lines contribute to the Midcentury Modern design of the space, while elements such as the gold-lined pendant lights help to add glamour and pizzaz.
“Using black for interiors can be scary as it’s usually associated with being dark or depressing,” says designer Jodie Rosen. Her advice: “Using hits of black as an accent is a great way to elevate a space and emphasize elements of the design. In this case, we used black on the trim around the range to make the area a focal point and then repeated the black in the oversized fixtures, stools, and the metal detailing on the island.”
Wood support beam and a classic chandelier paired with a mix of black and white cabinets make this a warm, classic space. The white cabinets provide a highlight feature, while the upper and lower cabinetry lights create the perfect ambiance. The large island with marble countertop provides plenty of space to work and eat.
"U"-Shaped Kitchen Provides Counter Space and Casual Seating to the Home
The "U"-shaped kitchen cabinets provide plenty of counter space while giving definition to the kitchen space, separating it from the rest of the first floor. The barstools give the space a casual dining option but are also in close proximity to the dining space, so they could also serve as an extension of the home's dining area.
The unique, two-tiered island provides casual seating for six in the kitchen of this sleek, modern home. One the first level, four barstools rest a counter-height, providing counter space on one side and seating on the other. On the lower level of the feature, an extension table adds two more chairs for the homeowners' and their guests.
"People are having 'stainless steel fatigue' so we are paneling all of the appliances so they disappear and make the space look larger," says Christopher Grubb. Grubb predicts more wood tones and less gray and white for cabinetry over the next year.
The basement kitchenette uses a black-and-white color palette combined with stainless steel to create a chic, contemporary design. A trio of pendant lights hangs above a sleek bar-height table and black barstools, while a stainless steel backsplash provides a chic setting for the sink and cabinet area.
Transitional Kitchen With Damask Wallpaper Accent Wall
A bold damask wallpaper surrounding the range creates a striking focal point in this white kitchen. A wood island with leather barstools provides a casual eating area and extra workspace. Two large wood chandeliers provide soft lighting above the island and kitchen sink, creating a rustic elegance in the space.
Black industrial barstools pull up to clean Caesarstone countertops for a casual dining spot in this spacious kitchen. Hardwood floors add warmth to the space, while a sleek light fixture brings a contemporary vibe to the room.
A large window allows plenty of morning sun into the breakfast nook to warm the space, while a fun, modern pendant light gives light on cloudy days. A large bench and black and white, modern chairs add cozy seating to the space.
Black and White Dining Area with Mirror and Chandelier
This dramatic cottage dining area features charcoal gray walls and a coat of black paint on the hardwood floor. The room is a good example of how dark walls can help a small or narrow space feel more intimate.
Black cabinets, island and dining table bring dramatic flair to the bright white walls and marble floors in this open floor plan kitchen. Gold pendant lights bring a touch of metallic over the sleek, built-in dining table, and the entire space opens up to the living room, making it perfect for entertaining.
