A Charming Touch

By Bathroom Designer

A Charming Touch

A simple palette of black and white, accented with just a hint of color, helps to create a country-traditional kitchen with a shade of glamour. Sleek white-painted flat-panel cabinets contrast the jet-black, T-shape island. The unique shape of that focal point provides space for cooking and meal preparation as well as seating on the perpendicular element. The mint-green bead board paneling adds a soft touch to the room, as do accents such as the wire-wrap pendants, open shelves, and glass-front cabinets.

Make a Small Kitchen Look Larger

Make a Small Kitchen Look Larger

Paint It White

White is your best friend in a small kitchen. It reflects light, which enhances the sense of space and makes the walls seem to recede. When you carry the white from the cabinetry to the countertops, walls, and ceiling, you create a seamless space without edges or boundaries to stop the eye. Use several shades of white and combine contrasting textures to keep an all-white room from feeling sterile. Recessed-panel cabinets and crown molding create subtle shadows that add interest, too.

Galley Kitchen With Doors

Galley Kitchen With Doors

Galley kitchens often require ingenious solutions to space challenges. To save space for a large stainless-steel undermount sink, these homeowners opted for a wall-mount faucet that swings out over the sink. A small filtered water faucet sits to the side of the sink. Above, stainless-steel open shelves house dishware close to the dishwasher, making it easy to unload the appliance.

Kitchen Cabinet Ideas,Traditional Elegance

By Bathroom Designer

Traditional Elegance

Cabinets accented with classic molding and furniture-style details lend timeless traditional style to this elegant kitchen. A dark glaze layered over the creamy white perimeter cabinets conveys a sense of formality by enhancing the cabinetry’s fine fluting, shapely legs, and intricate crown molding. A black-matte finish on the generous island compliments the scene with striking contrast. To prevent today’s traditional style from feeling stodgy and unlivable, add a thoughtful dose of casual embellishments, such as the beaded-board panels and wire-mesh door fronts that hint towards English country ambiance in this kitchen.

Contemporary Kitchens ideas

By Bathroom Designer

Contemporary Kitchens

Contemporary kitchens tend to be described as modern, minimalist and geometric. The characteristics include horizontal lines, asymmetry and a lack of molding and other ornamentation. Materials often are man-made rather than natural: stainless steel, laminate, frosted glass inserts, concrete, linoleum, chrome and lacquer.

A custom-made, cylindrical cabinet is the focal point of this kitchen island. The raised drum unit features solid tulipwood cabinets painted an ivory color, and a walnut butcher-block countertop.
