Slight Contrast

This classy space has beautiful arched windows above the sink that provide natural light. The darkly stained chairs add contrast to the monochromatic color scheme, and the contemporary light fixtures balance the room's traditional country feel. Design by Tina Muller in Glen Ellyn, Ill.

Bold Artwork in the Kitchen

This sleek kitchen features Calacatta gold marble countertops and Venetian glass wall tiles, which add soft color to the white color palette. The bold artwork adds a touch of color and acts as a focal point in the space, designed by Joseph Pubillones. Photo by Daniel Newcomb

Marble Counters Add Visual Interest

In this all-white kitchen, Carrara gold marble counters add visual interest. The space also features double-height upper cabinets that maximize storage and a bar that doubles as a buffet. The under-cabinet lighting enhances the room's clean, contemporary look. Design by Andreea Avram Rusu

Open Feel Kitchen

Soft natural tones and simple lines lend a classic, clean look to this space. The 11-foot ceiling gives the room an open feel while providing more wall space for storage. The rich dark tone on the island makes the room feel welcoming and balanced. Photo by Alise O'Brien. Design by James Howard in St. Louis

Galley Kitchen

A white backsplash, cabinets and counters make this long galley kitchen feel wider. The visual focus of this space is the dark floor. Design by David Scott

Subtle Kitchen Design

This all-white kitchen is accented with vertical and horizontal chrome hardware, adding interesting lines and design to the space. The whimsical ceiling-mounted light fixture provides exceptional lighting along with the glass pendants over the sink. Design by Shane Inman

Fresh Design

White cabinetry, granite counters and a hand-painted ceramic tile backsplash set a warm tone in this kitchen. The soft green tile backsplash adds a touch of color without taking away from the fresh feeling in the space. Design by Jessica Williamson in Newton, Mass.

Clean Country Kitchen

With white chairs, cabinets and columns, this kitchen has a clean country feel. The peninsula seats eight people, and the custom-designed light green stove hood adds an interesting element to the space. Design by Shane Inman

Exotic Kitchen Cabinets

Abundant natural light highlights this sleek kitchen. The all-white quartz countertops, white cabinets and milky-white glass backsplash are paired with the exotic zebra-wood cabinets to create a beautiful well-rounded space. Photo by Becket Logan. Design by Celia Berliner in New York City

Create Natural Light

Sleek and contemporary kitchen cabinet designs enhance the modern atmosphere of this kitchen in the former home of the late Julia Child. The space also features large windows, which provide natural light, and a darker stained island that is the focal point of the space. Design by Philip Guarino in Boston
