Beautiful kitchens are hard to ignore. Kitchens are undoubtedly the busiest rooms in the home, so making it beautiful and functional is (maybe) more important than the function/aesthetics of any other room in the home. Kitchens also tend to be toward the front of the home and therefore see more traffic and visitors then dens and bedrooms. All the more important to make your kitchen welcoming, efficient, and a place that you, your family, and your friends will want to be.
The geometric rug and the super cool modern barstools add character and style to an otherwise staid, albeit beautiful white kitchen. I love those leaded panel windows and the counter to ceiling white subway tile.
Another white kitchen gets some character and fun with a green kick board at the breakfast bar. A glossy brass pendant and gleaming tile balance out the country stools and light wood floors.
This kitchen might be my favorite. The large rustic island, the absolutely stunning runner in faded colors, the layout, it’s somehow peaceful and energizing at the same time.
I think this stove could make even the most reluctant person want to cook. It looks like a work of art. The pale exposed bricks and decorative open shelves is a nice touch too. Add the copper accents and amazing hood and you have a very French aesthetic.
This might be a galley kitchen, but it sure packs a punch! The windows are amazing! The thick black counters and vertical wood panel cabinet fronts are really dramatic as well. I never thought a kitchen could look “zen,” or spa-like, but this one sure does.
Another amazing galley kitchen. The soft gray herringbone floors lead you to beautiful glass doors. The skylight also adds light to reflect off of the beautiful brass cabinetry hardware.
Do you have a favorite kitchen from the ones above?
