Contemporary Copper

As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, this gorgeous kitchen received a makeover with fresh white walls and contemporary copper details. For those who love to bake, its large island is the perfect place to display tasty treats.

Stunning Vaulted Ceiling

For an instant touch of elegance, add a chandelier enclosed in a glass cylinder. It's a new take on a classic look that is sure to wow guests.

Wooden Accents

When you have a beautiful high ceiling, you'll want to draw the eye up, and exposed wood beams do just that. Add other wooden details like cute shelves to pull it all together.

'X' Marks the Spot

Want to display your china and glassware in shelves that are out of reach? Add a fun sliding ladder for easy access and a personalized touch.

Statement Swing

How fun is this kitchen? The bohemian design is topped off with a wooden swing and faux-fur seat covers for a youthful touch.


You can make any space look sophisticated with the right accessories. Brass details along with woodwork can take an ordinary cottage look to one that is more contemporary.

Custom Blue Backsplash

This warm and inviting kitchen's rich, dark wood cabinetry is complemented by the custom backsplash which pulls the whole look together.

Mediterranean Style

A cooktop in the gourmet kitchen's island allows the chef to stay on task while still hanging out with family and guests in the adjacent sitting areas.

Entertainer's Dream

This kitchen is an entertainer's dream, with stainless appliances, a large island, four stools and a bright white breakfast nook. While the owners prep dinner, their guests can enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres in the same room.

Pretty in Pink Details

Pink and gold is a classic color combination that can wake up an ordinary white kitchen. Bonus points if you display tasty treats in matching colors!

Wall of Windows

Natural light instantly makes a room feel cozy. These huge windows add an attractive yet functional design element to this bright blue kitchen.

Floating Focus

The focal point here has to be the floating shelves. Since they're mainly for decoration, the "U-shaped" cabinets below provide plenty of storage space while giving definition to the kitchen, separating it from the rest of the first floor.

Double Duty

This fabulous cook’s kitchen features double islands that provide plenty of prep and work space, as well as a great spot for dining.

From the Jungle

With natural wood elements and indoor plants, you can create a cool look that feels jungle-inspired.

From: Bea Pila

Rustic Farmhouse

White walls pair perfectly with exposed beams to create a rustic feel, but the highlight of this kitchen has to be the farmhouse table and wrought iron chairs.

Wallpaper Accent Wall

Black cabinets and graphic wallpaper take this chef kitchen into surprisingly chic style territory.

Bold Is Better

When your kitchen essentials are neutral, you can be creative with the add-ons like flooring and decor.

From: Bea Pila


For apartments and townhouses downtown, wood tones and creative lighting can create a sleek look for your hip space.

Full-Wall Backsplash

For a bold statement, extend your backsplash to cover the full wall.

Timeless Appeal

To create character, designers added decorative hardware and interesting light fixtures to really round out this kitchen.

Bright + Open

A tall ceiling and crisp white walls can make any space feel larger than life. Add a dining table nearby for seamless entertaining.

Mixed Textures

Texture provides layers of visual surprise and can serve as a substitute for bright colors.

Wide Open Spaces

This open kitchen by designer Brooke Wagner takes all the best features of modern, farmhouse and boho style and blends them together. The result? A space that's functional, fresh and totally unprecedented.

Contemporary Country

Designers wanted to create a functional, inviting and timeless kitchen for the homeowners to replace their home's original, outdated kitchen. To update the space, designers removed walls, opening the space up. They also replaced the space's dark color palette with this bright one.

Grand Space

With a space this grand, you need kitchen cabinets to match. A curved bar with glass cabinets creates a surprising visual centerpiece and provides a fun place to showcase your glassware.

From: Sarah Taylor

Chalkboard Reminder

A chalkboard cabinet is a fun addition and is the perfect spot for meal planning, reminding and doodling!

Electric Blue

When using this much color, it's important to use similar shades or complementary hues. As seen on HGTV's Flip or Flop Vegas, designers added neutral elements to balance the electric blue.

Fresh + Inviting

This mostly white palette is punched up with hints of blue and topped off with metal accents that bring a crisp note to the space.

Teal Talk of the Town

Teal wall tile can bring life to an otherwise neutral kitchen. Incorporate whites and wooden elements to enhance the wall without competing.

From: Gina Sims

Double the Space

Storage is one of the most important features of a kitchen. Here, matching islands offer extra storage and an eat-in counter. The best of both worlds!

From: Bea Pila

White + Open

Exposed beams make this modern kitchen feel cozy, even with vaulted ceilings. For wine lovers, add a wine fridge under the counter for easy access.

Midcentury Modern

Stunning architectural details of this open plan kitchen create a vibrant textural contrast for a fun, eye-pleasing look.

Suspended Shelves

The suspended shelves help define the kitchen space visually while providing additional storage.

Marvelous Marble

With ultra-dark walls, the beautiful marble island and backsplash can really shine.

Custom Touches

To counter the limited square footage in this home, designers combined the kitchen, breakfast nook and dining room into one larger, easy-flow space. Fun elements like the library ladder and live-edge dining table make it a custom space.

Sculptural Jewelry

Designer Kitchy Crouse selected a statement hanging pendant to anchor the space and serve as a kind of sculptural jewelry for the room. These gorgeous statement lights along with the wood island and bar chairs make this space cool and hip.

Butcher Block

The hunk of butcher block, discovered in a Michigan antique store, was integrated into the design of this oversized kitchen island. It pairs beautifully with the blue island and cabinets.


This is a kitchen you want to hang out in: Exposed brick walls and copper accents make a cozy atmosphere and there's plenty of seating. There's also a wine refrigerator!

Glamorous + Dramatic

All back everything can easily get boring. The gold pendant lights bring a touch of metallic to this open floor plan kitchen, adding glamour to the dramatic look.

Straight From Martha's Vineyard

This rustic-chic Martha's Vineyard home features a streamlined kitchen with white cabinetry and open shelving above.

All In the Details

The fun checkered chairs and patterned rug add texture and color to this eat-in kitchen.

Natural Necessities

All-over tones can be overwhelming, but when it's a light-stained wood paired with metal accessories, it works. To bring light to the look, add white marble countertops and plenty of windows.

From: Doug Burdge

Leather Details

The dark floor of this kitchen gives the open concept space gravitas. Bonus points: The barstools' brass is a striking contrast against the charcoal gray.

Custom Details

Custom details bring personality to a space. The unique natural wood table has raw edges, plus it connects to the kitchen island for a cool concept.

Neutral Craftsman

As seen on Restored by the Fords, Steve and Leanne Ford designed an open concept kitchen with wood paneling to create a modern ski lodge look.

By the Coast

A view like this is almost begging for a bright blue and white aesthetic to match. Add in charcoal details to ground the look.

Elegant Silver

Marble and silver is a classic combination that can instantly elevate any space.

Unique + Rustic

As seen on Fixer Upper, to help add dimension and depth to this renovated kitchen space, Joanna created a custom, raised ceiling just above the dual kitchen islands.

Splash of Color

A bold, patterned rug can bring a playful splash of color to any kitchen and works especially well when the rest of the space is clean, white and fairly minimalistic.

Blue Beauty

For those who never shy away from color, bright blue cabinets can establish a vibrant color scheme and bring warmth to a space.

Warm Wood Tones

When using an all-neutral color scheme, mix textures for a striking and stylish look that doesn't bore.

Crisp + Clean

This all-white kitchen is anything but vanilla with stunning pendant lights, exposed Edison bulbs and beautiful glass dining table.

Vintage Meets Modern

Old elements like reclaimed wood and antique decor can breathe new life when paired with modern stainless steel appliances.

From: Denise LaVey

Earth Tones

In a spacious kitchen, earth tones paired with fresh, bright white make for an easy, relaxed vibe.

From: Intracoastal Realty Corporation and Luxury Portfolio International®

Custom Leather

Seating for five around the marble top island is plenty of seating for a busy family.

From: Liv Showroom

Matte Black

Create a chic kitchen by incorporating design elements like matte black walls and a marble backsplash with matching island.

A Touch of Glamour

Who says a rustic kitchen can't be glamorous, too? Sparkling globe chandeliers elevate the look but fit right in with the more rustic elements.

Red Accents

This kitchen is a wonderful example of how a white palette can be the ideal blank canvas on which to layer energizing pops of color and pattern. Here, the accents are brilliant red.

Wine Wall

For wine lovers, a wine rack is the perfect way to display your favorite bottles, as seen on the right wall of this kitchen.

Lovely Loft

In a narrow, long space like this one, subtle boundaries, like the low kitchen peninsula or delicate pendants, help break up the different areas without closing off the room.

Special Seating

This breezy banquette area sits just off the kitchen and offers a fun vibe with its blue and brown polka dot upholstery.

From: Sullivan Design Studio

Marble + Metallic

Marble and metallic gold pair perfectly in this airy kitchen design. The clear-back chairs and blue cabinets add a cool touch.


This loft kitchen connects to the living area for an open concept design that offers plenty of lighting.

Exposed Beams

The thick exposed beams could easily overpower the rest of the room, but the vaulted ceiling soars high and balances them out.


Minimal details can go a long way, just like the light fixtures and unique doors in this urban gray kitchen.

Fresh Canvas

White paneled walls make a blank canvas backdrop for this lovely kitchen's crisp black trim and open shelving.

Pop of Blue

In an otherwise neutral kitchen, the blue island serves as a happy pop of color.

Artfully Designed

To fill space in an impactful way, add a large rug for a vivid splash of color.

Contemporary Cowhide

Cowhide can be made cool when added to a kitchen that is open and bright.

Bohemian Beauty

Honey-colored floors and matching windowsill wrap this kitchen in warmth. Add a gallery wall for a personal touch.
