Open Concept Transitional Kitchen
Vaulted ceilings give an open, airy feel to this neutral transitional kitchen. A peacock blue kitchen island serves as the statement piece. Silver barstools with leather seats contrast with the light colored walls and cabinets.
The black and white tile backsplash in a traditional harlequin design provides an instant pop of contrast along one wall of this otherwise neutral kitchen for an eye-catching effect. By using these direct color opposites, the silver tones of the stainless appliances and brushed nickel cabinetry hardware blend with the rest of the kitchen, with the black tying in the color of the granite countertop. Design by AB Design Elements.
Kitchen With Craftsman-Inspired Cabinets and Blue Stove
An earthy, Craftsman-inspired kitchen features a blue stove to complement the sky and ocean view across the room. A cinderblock-inspired backsplash — which is actually combed basalt — and poured concrete floors bring a cool, industrial feel to the room, which also features an island and custom glass-front cabinets.
The kitchen takes a colorful, industrial turn, showcasing Naomi’s fondness for metallics. The island is topped with an oxidized, steel countertop. The material is a unique twist on the usual granite or marble found in most kitchens. The steel top will patina over time. Its rough-hewn texture is also a pleasing contrast to the stainless steel refrigerator and brass elements in the kitchen. Cabinets in a gray-blue tone contrast with the brass pendant overhead. Naomi discovered the pair of vintage white bar stools and painted the legs gold for a finishing metallic touch.
A large granite-topped kitchen island adds plenty of functional space for food prep while allowing the home cook to keep an eye on the rest of the gathering in this open-concept kitchen and living space. The wide farmhouse sink adds beauty and function to the island.
This spacious traditional kitchen features a pairing of cherry stained cabinets and antique glazed white cabinets, as well as a wet bar, round glass dining table and crystal chandelier. A breakfast bar with neutral granite countertops provides stools for additional dining space.
Contemporary Neutral Open Plan Kitchen With Dome Pendants
The kitchen contrasts hickory wood floors and exposed wood beams with airy details like white walls, countertops and a backsplash. Dome-shaped pendants and angular barstools with round seats are a fun mix of shapes in the open concept space.
This light and bright open plan kitchen features a spacious island with tiger stripe bamboo drawers and a neutral countertop. The dining room boasts a glass table positioned just in front of 8-ft by 8-ft sliding glass doors that can be opened up to the outside, offering a picturesque waterfront view.
A new wall of cabinetry in the kitchen offers pantry space from floor to ceiling and even houses a microwave. “Everything’s on pull-out drawers,” says homeowner Lynielle Long, who enjoys sharing bits of fresh ingredients with the children while she’s cooking. “That way, they play with their kitchenette and feel included in the meal prep while I work.” New hardwood flooring features a mix of plank sizes.
Spacious Open Kitchen Area With Dual Islands and Large Table
This large, open kitchen blends rustic and contemporary design and features two large islands as well as a large table nearby. The space has a high vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and includes large windows for viewing the surrounding mountains.
