Brown and White Contemporary Eat-In Kitchen With Tile Floor
This contemporary kitchen incorporates a café-style breakfast island made of concrete for casual dining. Shaker cabinets in a warm brown stain blend with honed stone flooring to continue the inviting atmosphere.
Brown Traditional Eat-In Kitchen With Exposed Beams
A large island has plenty of space around it to fit at least four chairs, giving the kitchen a place for casual dining and hanging out with the chef. The exposed beams draw the eye up, calling attention to the high ceiling.
Transitional Eat-In Kitchen Features Beautiful Wood Cabinetry
Traditional wood cabinets with shaker-style doors bring warmth to this eat-in kitchen. A pair of contemporary barstools provide a casual place to dine at the island, and a globe pendant light sparkles above.
Traditional Brown Kitchen With Custom Storage Pantry
When open, it's easy to see just how much storage this custom cabinetry provides. With room for a broom closet, dry goods and plenty of items that once resided in the basement, this cabinet proves it is spacious enough to handle it all.
Curved Basket-Weave Tile Backsplash in Dining Area
To add some visual eye candy to her brand-new kitchen, HGTV fan cc_insidearch used gold glassed-curved tile to create a basket weave-patterned backsplash in the cut-out of her back wall cabinet unit. With bright backlighting and a reflective granite countertop, the glass tiles' iridescent finish appears especially sleek and shiny.
Contemporary Chef's Kitchen is Perfect for Entertaining
A cool gray waterfall countertop is paired with sleek black barstools for an eat-in kitchen. The contemporary kitchen features plenty of storage with dark brown cabinets and floating shelves, while bright white countertops create a striking contrast.
Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri transform this outdated kitchen into an open space that combines the casual breakfast nook. A large kitchen island clad in stainless steel countertops provides plenty of prep space. Simple white barstools are a great spot to grab a snack or sit to chat with the cook.
Stainless Steel Countertops in Contemporary Meets Rustic Kitchen
Multicolored tiles create a striking backsplash that adds color to this contemporary, rustic kitchen. Bright white cabinets add lightness to the space, which features a concrete apron-front sink, stainless steel countertops and a large island perfect for prepping, entertaining and dining.
Transitional Gourmet Kitchen is Open, Family-Friendly
This eat-in transitional kitchen features a contemporary dining table paired with wicker chairs, as well as bartop eating off the island. Traditional, dark brown cabinets are paired with neutral stone countertops and backsplash, while contemporary lighting brings a modern touch to the space.
A long island houses a butcher block countertop, handy storage for cookbooks and barstools for eating or chatting with the cook. The stainless steel range hood, which runs the length of the island, provides integrated task lighting. A built-in bar area has open shelving for glassware, wine refrigerator, backlit wine racks and a flat-screen TV.
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.
Large wood trusses with iron detailing create striking architectural interest in this contemporary kitchen, which features an island and a breakfast bar with barstool seating. Subtle bursts of chartreuse energize the warm space.
