Black and White Chef Kitchen With Gold Accents

A single bank of black cabinets is a striking visual surprise in the kitchen, tying in with the same-colored island and range hood. Throughout the room, golden accents bring welcome warmth and glow.

Contemporary Kitchen With Copper Pendant Lights

Removal of a wall opened the kitchen onto the new living space, practically doubled the kitchen's footprint and made room for a large island, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.

Blue Double Ovens Add Color and Increased Functionality to Neutral Kitchen

Blue double ovens add a splash of color as well as increased function to this elegant, neutral kitchen.

Art Deco Kitchen With Clean Gray Lines

Clean lines on the stove range and walls give this art deco kitchen a layered feel. Stainless steel appliances tie together the gray tile.

Large Kitchen Island Maximizes Kitchen Space

As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, to maximize the space in this kitchen, Joanna added a functional kitchen island to increase seating options and give the family more prep space for meals. Gray cabinets match the gray trim and molding from the rest of the open concept first floor, and rustic stools provide complementary style. A subway tile backsplash polishes off the space, finishing out the design.

Kitchen, After

As seen on Beach Flip, dontestants Lucy and Daphney removed all evidence of the old enclosed kitchen and created a large dream kitchen with lots of cabinetry, a huge island and stainless steel appliances on the first floor of the renovated Southwind condo.

Pastel Kitchen

I don't think I've ever been so excited to walk into someone else's kitchen. The Blehm's family kitchen is full of new and innovative ideas. The soft mint-green cabinets were the first breath of fresh air. The color, formerly only used as complimentary, has made a comeback and has been reinvented as a neutral foundation color in unexpected spaces. That refreshing color coupled with classic white counters and marble backsplash feels simultaneously both nostalgic and brand new. The island lighting is a magnificent display of creativity. Angela Blehm upgraded three simple spheres by designing a custom cage constructed from white oak. It’s a one-of-a-kind solution and an amazing focal point for the kitchen. The natural texture of the wooden cage along with the cabinet pulls, adds just enough warmth to make the family's gathering spot feel even more approachable and inviting.

Blue Kitchen

The L-shaped banquette in this bright kitchen with aqua cabinets creates a dining area with plenty of seating, perfect for entertaining even in a smaller home. A kitchen island on wheels helps to increase counter space then easily moves out of the way when not in use. Patterned window treatments frame the large window which brings in plenty of natural light.

Quartz Kitchen Island in Purple, Contemporary Kitchen

An oversized kitchen island with waterfall quartz countertop is the stunning centerpiece of this open concept kitchen. Ghost chairs and stools line the island for eating and entertaining.

Stainless Oven, Range Hood Increase Kitchen's Functionality

Those cabinets are just as functional as they are stylish, offering storage and keeping the counters clutter-free. Between them sits a sleek oven and range hood, which add to the kitchen's functionality.

Traditional Neutral Kitchen With Red Kitchen Island

Rustic wood floors, pine cabinetry and a red kitchen island give this kitchen a country look without being too literal. Traditional features like the stone backsplash, granite countertop and drawer pulls balance out the country elements.

Eclectic Kitchen With Distressed Red Island

A large island with a butcher-block countertop is a grand focal point in this spacious eat-in kitchen. Its distressed red finish adds country flair to the room's eclectic Mediterranean ambiance. The galvanized range hood is flanked by open shelves with an artful collection of dishes. A yellow pedestal table with two chairs at the end of the island offers a comfy place to dine or socialize.

Blue and White Kitchen with Kitchen Island, Stools and Kitchen Table with Chairs

This kitchen is a comfortable space that still looks classy and refined. Navy blue and white juxtapose perfectly to create a clean-feeling room perfect for cooking and gathering with friends. The space features both a kitchen island with stools and eat-in dining table surrounded by comfy armchairs.

Extra-Long Kitchen Island in Neutral Craftsman Kitchen

Three simple pendant lights illuminate the long island in this Arts and Crafts-inspired kitchen. Neutral cabinetry is complemented by granite countertops, while a stainless steel hood above the Wolf range adds a contemporary element to the space.

Yellow Cottage Kitchen

Bright, Contemporary Kitchen

Once a cramped galley kitchen, the updated kitchen feels fresh and stylish thanks to the bright white walls and beautiful gray cabinetry.

Modern Zen Kitchen

For this Walnut Creek, Calif. kitchen remodel, designer Yuko Matsumoto combines contemporary and Asian styles for a sophisticated and streamlined look. Matsumoto uses clean-lined wood cabinetry and a stunning counter-to-ceiling emerald-green backsplash as focal points in this stylish and eye-pleasing "Zen" kitchen. For the backsplash, smaller tiles are used around the hood and set vertically to mimic the look of bamboo.

Open Kitchen Concept

Located off the living room and open to the dining room, this family-friendly kitchen combines both function and style and serves as the true center of the home.

Creamy Cottage Kitchen

White walls and creamy cabinets create warmth in this cottage kitchen. An island with open shelves offers plenty of storage, while a neutral tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances update the space.
