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.

Colorful Focal Point

This gorgeous kitchen is updated with colorful cabinetry. The large island has plenty of room for the family to gather.

Casual, Cottage Style Kitchen

This kitchen features pro-style appliances, a center island, granite countertops, a marble backsplash and Old World-style pendants. The combination of the dining table, desk and spacious floor plan makes this the perfect space for family bonding. Design by Shane Inman

Contemporary Kitchen Design

This modern kitchen proves that contemporary design doesn't have to feel cold. The space creatively combines dark and bold colors with stainless steel, natural materials and dramatic lighting. The sleek table is topped with visually appealing centerpieces, which give the space a little color. Photo by Ric Marder. Designed by Ken Kelly in New York

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. Design by Tracy Morris

Eat-In Kitchen With Island Seating For Five

A marble-topped, two-tiered island with high-back seats for five centers this transitional gray eat-in kitchen. And oversized window lets in lots of natural light with warm shades coming from the modern pendant chandelier.

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

White Transitional Kitchen With Chalkboard

Large cabinet doors in this gourmet kitchen get the fun addition of chalkboard fronts, easier for meal planning, reminding and doodling!

Transitional Open Kitchen With Striped Ceiling

The ceiling can be the perfect place to try out a dramatic color or pattern or—in the case of this kitchen—both! The wide stripes draw the eye up and have the added effect of making the room seem larger.
