Pop of Pink

A light color palette makes this kitchen look streamlined and serene. The pink stove adds bold femininity, while the adjacent butcher block countertops provides a functional workspace. Pops of silver in the range hood and lighting fixtures complete the overall look.

True Blue

Sleek and simple shaker cabinets in a brilliant shade of blue by Benjamin Moore give the busiest room in the house a sense of tranquility. When the blue cupboards are paired with a classic white subway tile backsplash, the kitchen color scheme is as timeless as it is chic.

Bein' Green

Taking advantage of the room's natural light, this kitchen forgoes classic white subway tile for a watercolor green style—a look that changes tones depending on how the sunlight catches it. The rest of the room sticks with neutral details—cool white cabinets and butcher block counters—to maintain a bright space. The homeowners didn't forget about practical design choices, though: open shelving above the sink and dishwasher makes for quick clean up and sneaky drawers below the cabinets provide extra storage.

In The Corner

Conveniently placed in a compact corner, this contemporary kitchen looks clean and fresh. During the daytime, the over-sink window delivers a dose of natural sunlight, which reflects off the white backsplash, cabinets, and window frame. Stainless steel appliances and hardwood flooring add pops of natural color, while a glass cabinet door gives a peek at the colorful dinnerware inside.

Contemporary Countertops

The formica countertop takes center stage in this contemporary kitchen. With the sleek appearance of slate, it pairs nicely with the dark cabinets and hardwood floor. Pop of lighter color in the tiled backsplash, stainless steel sink, and second counter prevent the room from looking too dark.

Fresh from the Farm

Feast your eyes on the finished results of a kitchen makeover on Little Red Brick House. Here, creamy white hues and partially open storage help make this little kitchen live larger than its true footprint. They also pave the way for several other modern farmhouse details, including the trendy subway tile (lined with a contrasting gray grout) and faux marble countertops. Against the soft palette, several hits of warm wood complete the fresh new look: everywhere from the framed signage above the pantry and the custom-built range hood to the unfinished crates stored in a butcher-block-topped island.

Warm Neutrals

Wood cabinets and a rustic kitchen island surround provide a counterpoint to the sleek modern lines of this contemporary eat-in kitchen. A combination island and breakfast bar double the function of a single space, bringing even more utility to the busiest room in the house.

Layered Neutrals

Who says beige has to be boring? The neutral shades in this kitchen work together to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Off-white cabinets contrast with a deeper brown floor, while a textured backsplash adds visual appeal. The charming gathering space also contains ample storage, thanks to its built-in wine racks, glass-fronted cabinets, and large pantry with four cabinets.

A Spring Dream

A light and bright white kitchen makes the perfect backdrop for colorful accents. Rather than being committed to a palette because of wall or tile colors, pretty pastel dishes and details provide that splash. Nickel hardware and stainless steel appliances add a contemporary touch that balances out this cute kitchen.

Fit for the Family

Now here's a kitchen that considers the whole household—children and pets included! Details like seating pulled up to the kitchen island, doodles on a chalkboard accent wall, and a cushioned nook for Fido encourage the entire brood to spend time in the heart of the home. Plus, the number of cabinet doors visible in just this corner signal plenty of (hidden) storage for a growing family.

Marble Masterpiece

Cathy and her husband Garrett tackled their kitchen renovation with minimal assistance—they even laid the marble tile backsplash in the herringbone pattern on their own. But their hard work paid off. The updated kitchen checks off many of today’s trends: farmhouse sink, white cabinets, and of course, marble! Even the appliances tie in nicely thanks to the gray tones in the backsplash and counter.

Reaching New Heights

Looking at this kitchen, you might never guess that it’s only 8x10 feet! During its renovation, contractors raised the ceiling to make the kitchen feel spacious and to provide for ample cabinet storage, which it seriously lacked beforehand. The homeowners’ stuck to a simple palette of brilliant white and honey brown along with a gray tile backsplash. The neutral colors make the space feel bigger and brighter and let for a sunny pop from the yellow pendant lights.

A Trick of the Eye

In this country white kitchen, the checkerboard island is what catches the eye. Custom-built with cherry and walnut wood, it’s a true work of craftsmanship. But there’s another detail in this kitchen you may not even notice! There is no open space between the upper cabinets and counter; it’s a mirror backsplash. This unique choice is a clever way to brighten the space and make it feel bigger.

With a Twist

Not wanting to stray too far from the historical appeal of their 1910 Brooklyn home, Alison and Jovito selected a gray and white palette, but used elevated details for a modern spin. Being savvy shoppers, the couple chose chic gray cabinets from Ikea and found their range hood from a salvage store. The eye-catching herringbone wood floors are actually porcelain tiles, the same durable material used for the raised geometric backsplash.

Home on the Range

There’s a fine line between a light and bright white kitchen versus a blindingly stark one. Kelly, who runs the blog The Lilly Pad Cottage, strikes the right balance by adding warmth and dimension to the space. The custom-built wood range, which matches the walnut floors, breaks up the all-white scheme while still being calm and neutral. For some character and charm, open-shelving and layered rugs gets the job done.
