In this galley kitchen, the colors from the bold wallpaper are repeated in the green wall paint and blue Ann Saks tile backsplash. The pattern's drama is balanced by sleek white Ikea cabinets, countertops and stainless steel hardware. Large copper pendants add warmth to the space and complement the room's jewel tones.
White Traditional Galley Kitchen Is Open, Spacious
The stairway to a lower-level family room backs up to the traditional kitchen in this Brooklyn townhouse. A wide pass-through window opens up the space, bringing in lots of natural light and giving an airy feel to what could otherwise be a cramped galley kitchen.
Three contemporary-style pendant lights illuminate this kitchen's contrasting island that serves to moderate the white perimeter cabinetry while coordinating with the backsplashes on the outer walls. Neutral granite countertops give the room a cohesive look.
Known for her super luxe, traditional spaces, design diva Candice Olson focused on function as well as form when designing this long galley-style kitchen for a busy family of four. She chose white wall cabinets to keep the space bright but decided on a dark stain for the island to break things up. Gray, gold and black linoleum floor tiles add a playful touch and echo the colors found in the glass tile backsplash.
Wall-to-ceiling white paneling makes this galley kitchen feel bright and inviting. White cabinets pair with stainless steel appliances for a classic look, while reclaimed wood floors add rustic appeal.
Open Concept Floor Plan Seamlessly Blends Kitchen and Dining Room Spaces
Before Brio Interior Designs renovated this couple's space, their home felt closed in. The rooms were small, and the house was dysfunctional and did not flow. However, the designers knocked down several walls, opening up the floor plan and adding functionality and flow. Thanks to the new open floor plan, the kitchen and dining room are seamlessly blended to give the space an elegant, appealing look.
Shades of gray and white are used throughout the Brother Vs. Brother kitchen in the cabinets, countertops, backsplash and checkered flooring. A accent wall of navy blue brings a burst of color to the space.
Subtle shifts in the geometry of this modern building maximize natural light and views to the sky, expanding the perception of space and openness while maintaining the small footprint. As the walls splay out from the base of the building toward the roof, the resulting void is a central light well.
