Updated Neutral Modern Kitchen With Custom Wood Cabinetry
This neutral modern kitchen was brought back to life by opening up the space and adding windows. Updated lighting was added to fit today's lifestyle and also respect the age and style of the space. Custom wood cabinets were added throughout. Thought was given to each finish to ensure that the original style of the house was retained with a more modern touch.

Modern Kitchen Features Quartz Countertop Islands & Curved Cherry Flooring
Cherry wood strip flooring, curved and bent in a pattern matching the radial form of the residence, is a spectacular example of the attention to detail in this modern kitchen. High-end finishes, like the Cambria quartz countertops, offsets the industrial elegance of the cast-in-place structural concrete wall. Floating storage echoes the elevated kitchen islands and influences the open feel.
White Modern Open Plan Kitchen With Wood Cabinets
This open concept kitchen elegantly fills an awkward space by adding a cozy dining nook in the back corner. The nook's dark gray accent wall combines with the hardwood cabinetry to give a refined touch to the all-white space.

White glass front cabinets are paired with a white herringbone backsplash, while a light gray tray ceiling offers a finishing touch.
Modern Monochrome White Kitchen With Large Island and Stainless Steel Appliances
A mix of natural light and decorative light fixtures add to the bright look of this all-white kitchen. Polished white countertop reflects the light over smooth, large cabinets. A large island extends out to an eat-in area with simple white bar stools. Stainless steel appliances are built into the kitchen, and a few small decorative items add a personal touch to the design.
Brown and Green Modern Kitchen With Green Backsplash
Slotted in between gorgeous walnut cabinets, the bright green glass tile backsplash wakes up this tasteful kitchen. The white countertops are a subtle pairing that doesn't compete with the vibrant color.
White Modern Kitchen With Ocean View
This gorgeous modern kitchen echoes the serene beauty of a white sandy beach, punctuated by the stunning ocean view just beyond the room's enormous windows. Soft gray cabinets bring a touch of textured contrast, but the overall feel is sleek and airy.

Sleek and sophisticated, this white, modern kitchen is perfectly uncluttered and large -- ready for cooking and guests. The island doubles as a breakfast bar; the bar stools add the room's pop of color.
High-Contrast Kitchen Boasts Clean, Streamlined Look
Sleek, clean and sophisticated, this kitchen achieves the optimal atmosphere for preparing a meal.

The color palette is equally impressive; rich brown cabinets offer striking contrast against the crisp white surroundings.
Neutral Modern Kitchen With Long Stone Countertops
Long stone countertops run the length of this spacious modern kitchen. A mix of neutral stone and tile creates variety and texture in the monochromatic space.
A Light and Minimal Open Kitchen
This modern, minimal kitchen and living space is enveloped entirely in white, giving the home an otherworldly feeling of weightlessness. Baseboards and cabinetry bases are recessed, making walls and furnishings appear to float. Clerestory windows in the kitchen bring in loads of natural light.
Oversized Modern Kitchen Island With Table-Height Counter
This oversized kitchen island provides plenty of seating at the eat-in counter and additional seating at the table-height extension. Acrylic dining chairs and barstools don't weigh down the space, while sleek cabinetry provides a modern backdrop for the open kitchen.
Warm, Inviting Touches
A custom glass backsplash and granite countertops bring modern aesthetics. Designer Gregory Augustine integrated honey-colored leather stools and dark walnut cabinetry to add warmth and comfort to the space.
A Variety of Textures
A stone wall, glass tabletop and wood ceiling light fixture bring various textures to this kitchen designed by Elizabeth Rosensteel. The monochromatic gray tones in the countertops, cabinets, stools and backsplash bring a modern touch to the space.
This kitchen, designed by Vanessa DeLeon, is filled with style, from the sophisticated piano to the sparkling light fixture. The fireplace by Panika Fires resembles a piece of art, and the shiny lacquer countertops bring an extra sparkle to the space.
The high-end appliances in this kitchen make it any cook's dream. The blue under-cabinet lighting allows the tile backsplash to shine, and the neutral tones in the kitchen create a striking contrast against the dark-toned cabinets. Design by Vanessa DeLeon
An eco-friendly kitchen design is a new and innovative way to cook. Designer Lori Dennis chose recycled countertops with silver flecks for some sparkle and the bamboo shades, cabinets and flooring and sleek hardware bring a modern touch to the space.
