Family Kitchen

This rustic kitchen is perfect for a family of any size. There's plenty of space throughout the room for people to gather, and the dark-stained table offers a majestic mountain view. The kitchen also features a subway-brick ceiling, which matches the color of the floor and adds a new dimension to the room. Photo by Gene Northup of Synergy Sotheby's International Realty.

European Flavor in the Kitchen

This warm and welcoming kitchen has a European flavor and places emphasis on the dining table. The warmth and elegance of the mustard cabinets contrast with the slate and wood flooring. The space also has a multi-layer painting technique that gives the handmade plaster walls an aged look. Design by Jo Ann Alston in Bernardsville, N.J.

Contemporary Kitchen Design

Secluded Family Area

This kitchen has a statement counter on the island, which was designed just a shade lighter than the floor to create an open space. The family dining table is in the sunny nook, creating the perfect space for a family meal. Two of the chairs at the table were replaced with a bench, completing the informal environment.

Natural Light in the Kitchen

Plenty of Storage

This gourmet kitchen has a breakfast bar and a dining table with an interesting sculptural base. The space has dark-stained cabinets that provide ample storage, and the large artwork brings a pop of color and visual appeal. Design by Andreas Charalambous

Ornate Kitchen

The Old World chandelier and elaborate centerpiece draw immediate attention to the dining table in this ornate kitchen. The detailed cabinetry, along with complementary wood tones, highlights the beautiful, naturally toned stonework backsplash. The island has a beautiful dark green countertop and provides extra storage space. Design by Trish Beaudet
