Kitchen Photos: HGTV Green Home 2009

The clean, uncluttered HGTV Green Home 2009 kitchen, with a nod to Asian design style, sparkles with glass tiles, quartz countertops and Energy-Star-rated appliances.

  • Hardwood floors provide the foundation for a clean and streamlined cooking space punctuated by mosaic glass-tile walls and CaesarStone quartz countertops.

  • Black oak and steel stools pop against the white bar. The antique lab style serves as a foil to the modern design style and streamlined fixtures of the kitchen.

  • Artwork proves unnecessary in this hardworking cooking space; a platter of fresh pears adds a pop of vibrant color.

  • A Kohler stainless-steel kitchen sink and polished chrome single faucet with side spray complements a stainless-steel Kenmore Elite “smart” dishwasher that determines the amount of time, water and energy need to complete each load.

  • Cabinetry in espresso with stainless-steel hardware pairs well with the gray tone of the mosaic tile, adding a masculine touch to the kitchen.

  • A pantry with a recessed sliding door stores glass and dinnerware, but it could also be used as storage for dry goods.

  • The Kenmore Elite cooking range features an induction cooktop that heats quickly and only when the element senses cookware.

  • Kenmore stainless-steel cookware features encapsulated aluminum bases for even heat conduction and cast stainless and silicone handles for maximum comfort.

  • To break up the sea of stainless-steel and dark surfaces, biscuits, breadsticks and crackers are displayed in elegant, lidded glass canisters.

  • Smart vignettes catch the attention when set against sparkling, black surfaces. A driftwood lamp and aloe vera plant pair up near the edge of the bar, while a white ceramic pedestal seems the perfect perch for colorful cookbooks.

  • A shaggy nylon rug creates a soft padded surface and dresses up the kitchen when company calls.
