Your home’s two hardest working rooms can be both functional and stylish. Be inspired by these designer spaces to breathe new life into your kitchen.
Nothing adds a luxurious look quite like marble. Flowing from the countertop to the ceiling, rich Calacatta marble lends a luxe atmosphere to this designer kitchen. Warm tones, found in the wood cabinets and brass fixtures, add a pitch-perfect balance to the stone’s cool polish.
No Tight Quarters Here
Who says a galley layout has to feel narrow and constrained? In this kitchen, pristine white cabinets stretch to the high ceiling while a wall of glass-front cabinets helps to visually stretch the space and show off favorite dishware. A long, slender island adds extra prep space and house appliances.
The Cottage Life
Completely charming, this pretty-in-white kitchen is anchored by a cheery blue island. Comfy pinstriped barstools tuck under the counter for a quick nibble or handy homework station. Graphic, patterned tiles create an interest-grabbing backsplash behind the range, while gold light fixtures bring in a trendy metallic tone.
Divided into two distinct zones, this kitchen can handle anything you throw at it. Two islands — one of which is clad in a stunning waterfall wood countertop — provide major prep space, double as food buffets and deliver extra seating. Cobalt blue subway tiles bestow a jolt of color to the warm-meets-cool palette. Lights throughout the space, from the teardrop pendants to the wavy wood fixtures over the dining table, convey movement and soften the room.
This open floor plan seamlessly joins the dining room with the kitchen where the island provides extra seating. Clean white cabinetry, topped with contrasting black countertops, borders the wall, while the island adds a soft shade of blue-gray to the muted palette.
Ebony and Ivory
A high-contrast color palette + splashes of gold = this seriously stylish kitchen. Subway tile in the softest of grays fills the space behind the range and over the windows for added texture, while see-through barstools are a contemporary addition to the glossy black island.
Blue-and-white Moroccan tiles are an eye-catcher in this global-meets-vintage kitchen. Unlacquered brass cabinet hardware and pendant lights boast a collected-over-time vibe, and the refrigerator and freezer are hidden behind custom-designed doors that showcase oak planks laid in a chevron pattern.
Hello Darkness, My Old Friend
In a sea of bright-white kitchens, there are still a few that embrace the darker side. Floor-to-ceiling deep wood tones create a rich and welcoming environment in this oh-so-edgy kitchen. The sleek lines of cabinetry and fixtures keep the space from feeling too heavy, while doses of white in the countertops and backsplash break up the monochromatic scheme.
Deliciously Full of Color
Although blue-green cabinets may be the star of this kitchen, a liberal use of white keeps the space from feeling overwhelmed with color. Brass pendants reflect the finish of the cabinet hardware, as well as inject a bit of vintage charm.
Equipped for a Home Chef
Bright and airy, this entertaining-ready kitchen has all the high-end appliances one could need. Exposed beams overhead contribute a rustic note to the mostly white space, while chrome pendants and wood-and-metal barstools bring in an industrial edge. The large island not only serves as a prep area and dining spot, but also has cabinets all the way around to provide bonus storage, including a built-in paper towel holder.
Upon Closer Inspection
Tile is not your only option when choosing an eye-catching backsplash. Here, black-and-white wallpaper was hung behind a protective layer of glass to create a one-of-a-kind installation. From afar, the paper looks like a striking abstract print, but once you step nearer, you’ll find it cleverly features drawings of hundreds of people.
A massive picture window pours natural light into this crisp, white kitchen and offers a lovely view while tackling the dishes. An extra thick marble slab makes for an impressive surface atop the eat-in island. Nestled between the upper and lower cabinets and surrounding the range hood, the subway tile backsplash adds a serene hint of pale blue.
Classic antique white cabinetry and Carrara marble countertops combine in this traditional kitchen. White subway tile extends from the backsplash to above the cabinets — covering the range hood, too — for a cohesive look. Industrial-style pendants, glass-front cabinets and elegant hardware finish the space with a vintage quality.
