White Kitchen With Tall Cabinets and Island With Dishwasher
High ceilings in this white kitchen allowed for double-stacked cabinets with glass-front doors at the tops. A large blue island provides space for several to sit and eat, and it includes a sink and dishwasher for food preparation and cleanup.
Black wood cabinets disguise the range and also frame the stainless steel oven in this traditional kitchen. Above the oven and cooktop, a decorative black shelf displays bottles filled with fruits and veggies.
The beautiful coffered ceiling draws the eye towards the lovely dining area with a bay window and French doors leading out to the backyard. Recessed lighting and pendant lights highlight the cream walls and ceiling.
This eat-in kitchen, designed by Lillian Martin Hayes, is both space-saving and elegant due to all its cabinet space and dark brown wood accents. A large, granite-topped kitchen island includes a small eating area at one end.
Lighten up a heavy, closed-off kitchen by converting your ordinary cabinets to open shelving. The kitchen shown belongs to blogger Judy Meek, who first tried open shelving in 2011 and documented her steps for her readers. “I have loved the open shelf concept,” Meek says. “Besides the open shelf over the peninsula, I’ve also opened up a shelf over the dishwasher for glasses, a shelf over the coffeemaker for cups and a long cabinet over our cooktop for our everyday dinnerware. The key is filling the shelves with items you use often.” Meek started by painting her oak cabinets white, and is now changing over to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ with wax, which makes spill cleanup a snap.
Traditional Small Kitchen with Island, Dining Table and Artwork
Adding a small tabletop atrium to your kitchen can give it an organic, earthy feel. In this kitchen, designers with homebuilder Lennar carry the vibe through the room with a textured tray on the console and earth-toned pastas in glass containers on the back counter.
This kitchen is filled with Old World charm, from the ornate detailing on the cabinetry to the beamed ceiling and inlaid floor treatment. Vintage-look pendants and a decorative tile backsplash show the level of detail that went into the space.
Neutral Traditional Kitchen With Granite Countertop
Although the color palette is predominantly neutral, this traditional kitchen brings in visual interest via a compelling mix of materials: dark brown wood cabinets, granite countertops and a mosaic tile backsplash.
This project is all about classic elements with pops of surprises. Black and white is set as the foundational pallet, with bold color and pieces accenting the space, leaving your senses feeling excited and happy.
