You never know where you’ll find inspiration for your kitchen remodel. Your neighbor’s renovation may make you reconsider a current trend, or you may realize that the cabinets in your favorite TV character’s kitchen would look perfect in your own.
Hopefully, viewing these six kitchens will help generate a few ideas that will help you turn your kitchen into a beautiful, practical, comfortable space.
Coffered ceilings are probably the first thing you noticed about this French Provincial kitchen. The intricate pattern adds a little elegance to the space and pairs beautifully with the white cabinetry. Older kitchens often have single light sources that create shadows and make it hard to read your favorite recipes. The designers of this room solved that problem by illuminating the room with a skylight, can lighting and pendant lights. Combining two different types of countertops can be risky, but the walnut and black granite counters look perfectly at home in this kitchen.
A Kitchen with a View
These homeowners turned a screened-in-porch into the ultimate dining area in their new kitchen. If you have an impressive view outside your home, you may want to consider framing it with a row of windows or doors. After all, a great view makes cooking more enjoyable and mealtime memorable.
A Splash of Color
This kitchen might be a little dull if all of the cabinets were coated in blue. Using the sparingly immediately boosts the drama level in the room. Blue tones in the backsplash complement the gale force blue island and pull the room together. Crisp white stacked cabinetry provides a welcome contrast to the darker floors.
Dark and Airy
In an era when white kitchens are the norm, a darker kitchen offers a refreshing change of pace. Without the lighter countertops and sliding doors, the kitchen might seem a little claustrophobic, but the room feels open and airy. The dark floors, stainless steel appliances, waterfall island and rich dark cabinets add more than a little sophistication to this compact kitchen.
If you prefer a minimalistic approach to kitchen remodeling, you’ll want to consider adopting a few Scandinavian design principles. Scandinavian style favors sleek, simple cabinets in white or other light shades and wooden floors. The island’s countertop is covered in white oiled oak, a choice that’s not only attractive but practical. Although simplicity is valued, austerity isn’t, as evidenced by the built-in Gaggenau Vario wine cooler.
Beautiful and Functional
Can a remodel really be considered a success if you don’t get the features you really want? Sometimes homeowners forego the appliances they prefer because they’re afraid that their kitchens will look too institutional. This Master Remodelers renovation proves that it’s possible to incorporate professional appliances without affecting the beauty of your kitchen. In fact, the Wolf range blends in seamlessly with the espresso custom cabinetry and the Calacatta marble backsplash.
