1. Black & White Kitchens
A glazed backsplash and weathered oak island feel sleek and sexy in a kitchen. The hanging rack is functional and stylish.
2. Add A Ladder
Mix form with function by outfitting your kitchen with a ladder. Moroccan tiles add a bright pop of blue to break up all the wood.
3. Wood Kitchen Island
Crafted from walnut, imbuia, and anigre, the nearly 11-foot-long island was inspired by English antiques. Elegance to the max.
4. Dropped Floor
A dropped floor makes a rustic kitchen feel even larger. The exposed wood beams in the ceiling also give it that farmhouse vibe.
5. Electric Blue Kitchen
Take blue and white to the next level with a vibrant burst of cobalt. It makes a statement but still feels classic.
6. Contrasting Textures
The contrast between the rustic stonework and streamlined stainless steel appliances give this French-inspired kitchen a serious wow factor. To maximize entertaining space, downsize an island and add a trestle table with stools.
7. Petite Window Shades
The rattan pendant in this kitchen ups the coastal vibes, but we’re most obsessed with these tiny blue window shades. Future beach house goals.
8. Brass & Blue Kitchen
For a glam but gender-neutral color scheme, opt for brass and blue. A banquette offers cozy seating.
9. Black Hood
Create a sophisticated cooking space with a vintage canopy hood. Glossy ebony cabinets add drama, while farmhouse sinks and a 10½-foot long island easily handle meal prep when there’s a crowd.
10. Nautical Windows
This may be a pricier renovation, but if you’ve always dreamed of living that Lonely Island, “I’m On A Boat” life (uh, don’t we all?), go all-out on the coastal look with porthole windows.
11. Purposeful Kitchen Updates
You don’t have to re-do your whole kitchen to make a statement. This kitchen has existing countertops and white range, but the cabinets were painted and hexagonal terracotta floor tiles were added, as well as open shelves.
12. City Farmhouse Kitchen
The city version of a farmhouse kitchen features brass hardware, a painted floor, and two Wolf ovens. The cabinetry, along with white-tiled walls and a milk-glass chandelier, creates the illusion of added sunlight.
13. Dramatic Lighting
For an oversized island, you need statement lighting. These iron pendants add drama and necessary light.
14. Orange Checkerboard
An orange checkerboard floor brightens up a mostly white kitchen. The contrasting blue door adds quirk.
15. Old World
Oil-rubbed-bronze hardware and antique-inspired floor tiles give a nod to old-world charm. The appliances and subway tiling keep it from feeling too dated.
16. Warm And Casual Kitchen
Pale oak floors have a scrubbed look, and plank cabinetry with painted hinges and black latches give a kitchen old-time charm. To top the counters and island, choose a butcher block for warmth and informality.
17. Plaid Ceiling
A green gingham ceiling gives a classic white kitchen some cool points. Bonus? It adds drama to high ceilings, while making the room a little cozier.
18. Pops of Red
This otherwise neutral kitchen gets a burst of color from a vibrant red. Brass fixtures make it feel clean and elegant.
19. Taller Kitchen Storage
The subtle color in this kitchen brings a coziness to the space, but doesn’t distract from its traditional style. And we need to talk about that insanely cool rolling ladder.
20. Sage Green Kitchen
Create a modern Provincial kitchen with minimalist grooved cabinetry in a soft custom sage green and limestone countertops. The kitchen feels simultaneously masculine and warm & inviting.
21. Ocean-Inspired Kitchen
Design a kitchen inspired by the ocean’s hues and you’ll forever be dreaming of a beach vacation. But it’s not like you weren’t already, right?
22. Colorful Contrasts
Simple Shaker-style kitchen cabinets in a creamy color are off set by dark counters. The back door is painted red for a pop of color.
23. Moroccan-Inspired Kitchen
Use open shelves to break up cabinetry. Blue mercury-glass pendants pick up the color theme and add to the kitchen’s exotic style.
24. Scandinavian Style Kitchen
Store everyday dishes on a traditional plate rack, and opt for a vintage table and chairs. Major farmhouse decor envy.
25. Vintage-Inspired Kitchen
This kitchen has a tiled barrel-vault ceiling, retro artwork, and bistro chairs for a vintage vibe. The brass fixtures add elegance.
26. Silver & Blue Kitchen
Hanging silver pendants add glam to this clean and modern kitchen. A blue backsplash adds color to keep it from looking monochromatic.
27. Blue & White Kitchen
Here’s how to play around with color in an understated way. A jewel-toned island grounds this otherwise all-white kitchen.
28. Open Storage
Open shelving and racks make a kitchen’s everyday items easily accessible. Add elegant stools so it doesn’t feel too industrial.
29. Spanish Revival Kitchen
This kitchen’s 1850s English refectory table echoes the wood beams above. And that farmhouse sink, though.
30. Geometric Lines
Hang pots from cantilevered shelves and choose patterned tiles to create a graphic floor in an all-white kitchen. The effect is industrial, but still homey.
