Bright, Open Design in Modern, Rustic-Industrial Kitchen
Designers wanted to create a bright, open look in this kitchen, so they brought in white cabinets grounded by gray countertops. For a pop of color, they decided to paint the island a light gray color. Then, they added a Neolith marble countertop to the island which, along with black matte fixtures and an apron front sink, combines the farmhouse feel with the industrial touch.
Taking full advantage of the open floor plan, a semi-circular island anchors this eat-in kitchen with a tiered breakfast bar. The textured finish on the bar is a visual treat, alongside the mosaic tile backsplash above the pale wood cabinetry.
Windows Behind Kitchen Cabinets Showcase Home's Lake View
The homeowners love the view from their space, so designers wanted to make sure it was visible throughout the construction, so they had windows installed behind the kitchen cabinets so that there were as few obstructions as possible.
By opting for floating shelves over cupboards, designer Sarah Stacey ensured that the black-and-white backsplash would stand out even more. Notice how herringbone tile floors bring visual interest to the space as well.
Butcher Block Countertops Add Warmth to the Country Contemporary Kitchen Design
The homeowners loved the idea of having a butcher block countertop, so designers added one section of butcher block on the side of the stove. This section gives the space a bit of warmth that complements the brass drawer pulls and door knobs on the cabinets.
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.
To add warmth to the white kitchen, designers added White Oak detail around the space's upper cabinet. This addition plays nicely off the White Oak flooring. Subtle texture throughout the space, in details such as the white herringbone tile backsplash and the gray and black veining in the quartzite countertop, kept the space feeling light and airy, while contrast was used sparingly and the Turkish Kilim rug adds pattern and a playful, cheery style to the otherwise neutral color scheme.
Whether you’re gazing out one of the many picture windows or whipping up something delicious on the stove, you’ll always enjoy the views. The kitchen’s unique backsplash is actually a steel laser-cut vista of Whitefish Mountain.

This renovated row house eat-in kitchen mixes minimalist design with modern style. Neutral tones can be seen throughout the space, from the cabinets and kitchen island to the table and dining chairs. A wall of narrow windows and glass door to the patio let in plenty of natural light.
Neutral Transitional Eat-In Kitchen With Island With Cooktop
A cooktop in the island makes for easy meal prep, while green accents add a cheery ambiance to this neutral transitional eat-in kitchen. The kitchen belongs to a private residence at the St. Regis Hotel at Monarch Beach, Calif.
The gorgeous walnut wood flooring in this newly-renovated kitchen gives the entire space a more contemporary vibe. Medium-wood cabinets and a cream-colored backsplash play off the floor’s light, earthy coloring.
