Lofty Kitchen Design

Making the most of its limited square footage, this kitchen utilizes open-air storage that's reminiscent of urban loft design and features an almost-invisible range hood to keep the area from feeling too cluttered. A brightly tiled yellow-and-gray backsplash complements the cherry cabinets and brushed steel appliances, while an elongated counter adds extra room for prep without taking up valuable floor space.

All-White Kitchen

The minimalist appeal of this all-white kitchen offers up more than meets the eye. Under-counter refrigeration and storage allow the room to maintain a free-flow design, while the rich, espresso floors bring out the subtle flecks of color in the granite counters. A decorative pendant light and frosted-glass cabinets keep the space feeling light and add visual interest. Image courtesy of True

Cabinet Storage Galore!

The birch cabinets of this warm and inviting kitchen — stained in a rich cinnamon shade — offer space for just about anything. A fully stocked bar with a wine rack and sink provides an area for entertaining, as does the two-tiered island. Subtle tile floors allow the dramatic cabinets to remain the focus of the room.

Integrate Mixed Woods

The different stains found in this oak and espresso kitchen offer just the right balance of color without looking mismatched. The oak island is topped off with the same stain as the floor, and the dark range hood and appliances blend well with the espresso-colored cabinetry. An under-mounted farm sink pops as a main focal point of the space, while neutral stone counters balance out the space. Image courtesy of QualityCabinets

Cabinets With Natural Accents

The natural maple cabinetry of this open-concept kitchen allows the accessory materials to catch the eye. A geometric-tiled backsplash picks up the flecks of color in the granite-topped breakfast island, while well-placed appliances — like the tucked-away microwave — keep the room from feeling disorderly.

Kitchen With Organic Elements

Combining organic elements with everyday home appliances and fixtures, as seen in this dramatic hand-laid stone stove area, creates a grand focal point for the richly designed kitchen. A sturdy mahogany island centers the space, while a colorful tile backsplash and slate tile floors are highlighted by recessed and pendant lighting. Image courtesy of The Grothouse Lumber Company

Multi-Tiered Cabinet Design

Stacked components of the walnut island create an asymmetrical look with multiple functions. The large marble island stays uncluttered, while the seating area remains connected for seamless entertaining. A tricolored tile backsplash picks up the dark woods and lighter accessory elements.

Farm-Style Kitchen

The bright whites in this farm-style kitchen are the perfect contrast to the rich browns of the edge-grain wenge island. Shiny stainless steel fixtures add a touch of glamour to the dark wood, and the marbled backsplash keeps the modernized Shaker kitchen feeling timeless.

Contemporary Country Kitchen

Light-colored cabinetry is complemented by two-toned wood flooring and stainless steel hardware and appliances, while exposed storage keeps the space comfortably informal. A rolling island on casters provides flexibility for cooking and entertaining, while the brushed-nickel chandelier, faux-wood accent wall and beamed ceiling painted in a neutral color add a touch of rural elegance to the kitchen.

Design for Fun

This creative kitchen blends functionality with aesthetics, from storage to the sink. Cabinet doors are outfitted with frosted glass and back-lighting to keep them from feeling too heavy, while the multi-tiered island is also multipurpose thanks to a secondary pedestal sink, a breakfast island, extra storage and a granite prep counter.

A Kitchen Built for Entertaining

The dramatic breakfast island of this large kitchen offers plenty of seating and multipurpose counter space. Pendant lighting keeps the room from feeling too dim against the flat-grain walnut wood and granite counters, while the center island boasts a deep espresso finish, which brings out the darker veins of the granite.

Cherry Cabinets

This contemporary kitchen displays a wall of colorful green glass and cherry cabinets that boast a sleek finish with minimal detailing. Sturdy brushed-steel hardware ties the appliances and fixtures together, while dark granite counters and a cherry breakfast island provide an abundance of extra prep and eating space.

Country-Chic Kitchen

Flat-grain walnut — found framing the picture window, in the small office space, around the island and underfoot — adds a rustic touch to this French-country kitchen. Brown-tone granite complements the wood, while off-white cabinetry keeps the room feeling airy and bright. Image courtesy of The Grothouse Lumber Company

Urban Revival in the Kitchen

Clean lines and dramatic color make this kitchen come alive. A lighter wood along the perimeter walls allows the striking plum vignette — which houses the major appliances — to become the focal point of the room. Minimalist knobs, pulls and a geometric sink and faucet are softened by a custom lighting plan that brightens the room from underneath as well as overhead.

Shaker-Style Kitchen

This Shaker-style kitchen is classic, clean and functional, with plenty of cabinet and center island storage. The dark wood of the built-in seating area and island is a nice contrast to the neutral tones that appear on the walls and cabinetry. A subtle tile backsplash, granite countertops and brushed stainless steel appliances add visual appeal without taking away from the overall appeal of the room.
