White Kitchen With Spacious Island and Blue Chairs
As seen on HGTV's Property Brothers, Drew and Jonathan Scott took down this kitchen's original low-hanging cabinets and opened up the entire space, creating an open-concept, eat-in kitchen with bright surfaces. The new island, outfitted with eye-catching blue chairs, serves as both a casual eating area and an extra work space. The copper light fixtures hanging above the island add color to the design.
Earth-toned tiles are used to create an eye-catching backsplash in this Old World-inspired kitchen. The custom cabinetry is topped in granite countertops, and a kitchen island provides extra prep area as well as a second sink.
The owners bring this kitchen into the 21st century by simply painting the cabinets, replacing the track lighting with a pretty pendant lamp, replacing the hardware and bringing in stainless steel appliances (bought off Craigslist).
The kitchen in this restored Gothic Revival mansion features white cabinetry that extends almost to the ceiling for maximized storage. A pair of windows ushers in the natural light that reflects off the nearby harbor. Dark hardwood and traditional details throughout call attention to the home's late 1800s roots.
Built-in, open shelving helps to visually open the small kitchen, and strategically placed gallery lighting makes artwork of even the tableware. To break up the monotony of the all-white palette, the design team introduced a variety of textures, including plank board behind the shelving and subway tile behind the range. Dark pulls contrast with the white cabinetry.
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.

Designer Nancy Blandford calls this kitchen "party central." Designed around two support columns, the massive U-shaped island can be approached from six sides. One side is for seating, another acts as the bar and the other four sides are for meal prep and serving.
Traditional white cabinets are clad in sleek black countertops in this open floor plan kitchen. The farmhouse sink sits in front of a picturesque window, which is surrounded by countertop-to-ceiling mosaic tile backsplash. Hardwood floors add warmth to the space.
Storage Dilemma: You love to cook, but all the large spoons, spatulas and tongs overtake your kitchen counters and drawers. Solution: Use a utensil rack to lift those important tools off the counters. This way you can see what you have and grab each tool when needed.
Traditional Kitchen with Dark Wood and Curved Island
A curved granite island takes command in this eat-in kitchen. A pattern of sinuous lines is carried throughout the space from the intricate cabinet fronts to the spiral pendant light. Fanciful hardware adds further character to the space.
