Modern Kitchen Awash in Black, White and Gold
Black and gold combine to create a sleek profile in this streamlined, modern kitchen. A mix of dark and light cabinetry is unified by dark countertops and an eye-catching backsplash that brings the mix of hues together. Three clean-lined pendants light the island, while a trio of modern upholstered barstools provide seating that allows guests to interact with the cook. An integrated refrigerator features modern brass pulls that match the rest of the hardware and fixtures.
A comfortable, efficient kitchen is a must for a serious cook who entertains both casually and formally. High-end appliances and a carefully planned layout provide efficiency.
Open Kitchen With Large Island Allows for Effortless Entertaining
The open layout of this kitchen, in addition to the expansive island, allows for great entertaining when friends and family visit. It was important for the family to have a functional chefs kitchen that would give them the opportunity to host while enjoying the company of their guests.
From large dinner parties to more intimate gatherings, the open-concept floor plan in the kitchen and dining areas makes this an inviting home for entertaining groups of all sizes.
Where the Action Is
Whether cooking the meal or eating it, everyone is part of fun in this airy eat-in kitchen. Light-colored exposed beams are a strong visual anchor in the midst of all the white.
Bright and Airy
Traditional upholstery on the barstools complements the smoky gray of the pendant lights above the island in this streamlined, contemporary kitchen. Glass-fronted cabinetry showcases dishware that is also awash in white, continuing the room’s clean, airy vibe. A slatted wood ceiling adds a touch of rusticity.
Seating for 8
A super long island is the key to fitting a number of people into this kitchen. Loads of space is available for eight durable Tolix stools in a navy blue accent. A pantry tucked just around the corner keeps this kitchen clean and neat.
Four globe pendant lights hang from vaulted white ceilings in this modern kitchen with an expansive island. Contemporary bar chairs line the marble and wood island with storage, facing a decorative backsplash and stainless steel range.
