White Kitchen With Wood Floors and L-Shaped Island
Designer Joe Human pushed back the existing wall to create a larger kitchen. He also installed new appliances and added new finishes and cabinets. Spaces were unified via a consistent ceiling height that ushered in a larger, more cohesive feel.
Contemporary Eat-In Kitchen With Stainless Steel Accents Feels Bright, Spacious
A glass tile accent wall and window in this contemporary kitchen brings in natural light to the white, spacious room. White countertops and cabinets keep the room feeling bright while stainless steel appliances and a metal tile backsplash add a modern touch to this functional space.
One thing's for sure: there's no shortage of storage in this transitional kitchen. Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, wide drawers and a double duty island give the owners plenty of room for their pots and pans and ensure that the space is clutter-free in the process.
Elizabeth describes the Nesbitt home as "not over-the-top modern. It's just manageable" she says of a home design that keeps extraneous clutter tucked away. "Everything has a place," says Elizabeth. Her home's California-modern look makes her life simpler and easier in some ways, she admits, than the larger, traditional home her family moved from. Of her white marble countertops, Eiizabeth notes "everyone tried to talk me out of it."
Bamboo cabinets and an earth-toned backsplash create a warm, inviting atmosphere in this contemporary kitchen. The island's white countertop pairs with white walls to ensure the space feels clean and crisp.
Crisp White Kitchen Features Blue Accent Barstools
The white walls and ceiling keep this kitchen bright and open, while exposed beams add texture and provide a break in the stark coloring. Blue barstools pop against the white island countertop and cabinets. Black perimeter countertops provide natural separation in the room.
Transitional Eat-In Kitchen With Pacific Northwest Twist
A black range hood, wood countertops, light gray cabinets and a teal island put a PNW twist on this eat-in kitchen. The glass tile backsplash speaks to that design as well, as its dark hues evoke thoughts of a rainy day in Seattle.
Don't be fooled by the rustic, exposed beams and chunky details in this farmhouse kitchen -- it's anything but rudimentary. High-end appliances, elegant task lighting and ample counter space are just what a skilled cook needs to make this kitchen sing. Thankfully, the extra-wide staircase will accommodate a stampede when the dinner bell rings!
Open, Transitional Dine-In Kitchen With Leather Bar Chairs, Long Pendant Lights and Large Island
The white, plank board vaulted accentuates the open and spacious design of this kitchen. A large island is topped with marble countertop and lined with red-brown leather bar chairs. A stainless steel cabinet brings a unique element to the room and matches the kitchen appliances. A herringbone hardwood floor brings an element of warmth to finish the bright room design.
Floor-to-ceiling cabinets provide much-needed storage, while the blue island adds a punch of color and the perfect spot for eating and doing homework. The entire space is designed to be family friendly, but still embraces luxurious materials, like granite countertops and mirrored tile backsplash.
This lively kitchen features a small dining space with a rectangular glass table surrounded by teal and white clover back chair. A bronze metal chandelier hangs above the table, while a fuchsia built-in hutch is positioned nearby, providing a pop of color amongst the white countertops and cabinets.
When designing seating for a small space, it helps to think outside the box — or, in this case, beyond the rectangle. In this condominium kitchen by Krieger + Associates Architects, Inc., the prep/dining island is wider at one end to accommodate diners, and narrower at the other to improve traffic flow.
