Designers wanted to fulfill the homeowners' wishes of a clean kitchen, without sacrificing the family's style, so they installed sleek, gray cabinets and a shimmery, gray tile backsplash, keeping the space stylish, but still simple and elegant.
Masculine & Modern Kitchen With Accordion Window to Patio
This kitchen is bold yet sophisticated thanks to dark wood cabinets, a granite-topped island and brown leather barstools. An accordion window fills the space with fresh air and natural light, as well as allows the owners to hand drinks and snacks out to guests on the patio.
An L-shaped counter and an island on wheels offer the ultimate in flexibility and convenience in this modern outdoor kitchen. Weathered wood furniture and a brick wood-burning fireplace give the space a homey feel, and multiple seating areas allow the homeowners to host both big and small gatherings.
Glass Tile Backsplash in a Modern Kitchen featuring Tones of Browns and Grays

The range hood has been kept small, allowing the backsplash to be the main focus.
Open-Concept Kitchen and Dining Area With Exposed Brick Wall
Although this open-plan kitchen and dining area actually is in a loft — in a converted bag factory in Nashville — the principles designer Jason Arnold followed will work in any setting. He says: “The kitchen is opposite the living area, in a large, open space that automatically lends itself to entertaining and family living. We painted the walls, trim, and cabinets the same soft grey to make the spaces feel as one. Because it is essentially a large room with a kitchen at one end, I wanted the kitchen to blend seamlessly into the space which is why there are no upper cabinets and instead, there is a large pantry armoire to the right. The dining table acts as the visual separation from kitchen to living.”
With a green accent wall and four wire-backed stools in teal, this modern kitchen doesn't shy away from color. A large island sits front and center for quick meal prep and cleanup while still complementing the sleek modern appliances.
