Kitchen design improvement

Use a bright color to add personality to an otherwise plain kitchen. For added interest, white cabinets are paired with bright yellow subway tiles that have been installed vertically. Add matching pendant lights, dishware, and planters to complete the look.

Adding Contrast

From the bright white cabinets to the deep gray island cabinets, this modern kitchen strikes the perfect balance of light and dark. The black and white patterned backsplash unifies the entire space.

Kitchen Faucet in Brass

A brass kitchen faucet adds a touch of elegance to any space. To achieve a unified look, pair it with complementary knobs and an aged brass pendant light.

Simply changing out the backsplash can completely transform your kitchen. This lovely baby blue and white pattern complements the crisp white cabinets and sleek open shelving.

Kitchen in the Country

The kitchen is an excellent place to experiment with bright colors. Add texture and varying shades to the monochrome. “Our eye adjusts to the range, and it all feels right”. The extravagant use of green is a design statement that I anticipate will age gracefully.

Consider Going Green

Simply changing out the backsplash can completely transform your kitchen. This lovely baby blue and white pattern complements the crisp white cabinets and sleek open shelving.

With reclaimed wood shelving, you can create a warm, rustic-inspired interior. The open shelves display dishware while also looking great. White subway tiles with black grout are installed to add another layer to your kitchen interior.

Use Greenery to Decorate Your Kitchen

Houseplants that double as decor will bring life to your kitchen. You can even grow herbs like basil or cilantro to help with cooking.

Allow Large Appliances to Shine

The retro-inspired refrigerator creates a nostalgic feel when combined with the antique Blue Willow dishware and the original shiplap walls,” says one of our interior designers. We love how simply putting dishware overflow on top of the fridge makes it feel right at home.

Patterned Flooring

These classic checkerboard floors are timeless. Pair the retro-inspired floor design with a clean interior full of crisp whites to give it a more modern look.

The Old and the New look of your kitchen

The Old and the New

The weathered wood beneath the farmhouse sink is a reclaimed piece of furniture. “I asked a friend to assist me in cutting up my favorite old table to turn it into the cabinet front,” designer Hedayetul Islam Shuvo explains. “This well-loved repurposed piece gave the kitchen just the right amount of soul.”

Maintain a Classic White Look

A neutral kitchen does not have to be dull. Take a cue from Humayun Jahanara’s home, Outbuild Interior’s Architect, Design and Creative, and incorporate natural stone, such as marble or quartzite, as well as pops of wood, brass, and textured accessories, such as a rug or window treatments. “I like to incorporate decorative elements that make the kitchen feel like a true living space rather than just a utilitarian space.” “It has a classic-meets-Modern-cool vibe,” Shuvo says.

If you like to think outside the box, experiment with the color of your cabinetry. “A pop of color can benefit modern, luxe, and even boho aesthetics,” says Hedayetul Islam Shuvo, Interior Architect, at  Outbuild Interior BD. “However, consider timeless rather than trendy, with blues, greens, and blacks being tried-and-true hues for personality-packed impact.”

Include a Breakfast Nook

A gathering spot near a window, even in a small kitchen, creates a cozy indoor-outdoor feel. The banquettes’ corner orientation creates a view inward, toward the soul of the house, and outward, toward the river and children playing in the yard.

Low Maintenance Tile

Low-Maintenance Tile

For interior designers, incorporating durable, affordable materials wherever possible is a no-brainer. We chose a user-friendly porcelain tile that looks like marble for each kitchen. It’s inexpensive and simple to clean.

Cubbies for Decoration

Not all cabinets must be functional. Kitchens are densely packed with cabinetry and millwork, so a touch of accessorizing softens the space.

Ceramics Showcase

Caren Rideau of Kitchen Design Group designed this space, which features cabinets that highlight the homeowner’s ceramics collection and complement tiles from Portugal inset into the marble backsplash.

Combine Wood Tone

One of our clients, a young, modern family, wanted a kitchen that felt like a living space. The island with a Louis XVI leg adds to the antique feel, and the corner banquette has a clean, modern upholstered back and seat with French legs.

To create a cozy kitchen, top designers swear by banquette seating. Increase its visual interest with a variety of throw pillows and high shelves for displaying a collection.

Cozy Corner

Built-in seating is a no-brainer for making the most of a kitchen nook. As a finishing touch, add patterned throw pillows.

Stunning wood accents in kitchen design

Stunning Wood Accents

Elevate a white kitchen with wood accents in various shades for a rustic look. To complete the design scheme, add a few brass details, such as a pair of pendants.

Panel with a Chalkboard

Add a chalkboard panel to the side of your refrigerator to add personality to your space and delight the kids in your family. It’s a great place to make your weekly grocery list.

Display on an Open Wall

Open shelves provide an opportunity to demonstrate your styling abilities. Fill them with everything you love for meal preparation and organization, such as glass canisters and white platters.

Neutrals that are timeless

Warm up a kitchen with a versatile paint color like Benjamin Moore’s Sag Harbor Gray, which can change tone as the lighting in your home changes throughout the day.

An oversized pendant is the ideal choice for any room that requires one statement piece to take it to the next level.

Whether you collect white porcelain mugs or blue and white patterned serving dishes, displaying them prominently in your kitchen can add character.

Moody Hues

Black adds a touch of opulence to any kitchen. Consider “almost black” colors that are rich and warm, such as deep blues and cozy maroons, for a less stark but equally chic option.

Contrast Materials

Incorporate a variety of natural stone, different shades of wood, and both matte and glossy surfaces for a unique look that isn’t too matchy-matchy.

Final Touches

To update your existing kitchen in a single afternoon, follow the lead of design team Studio McGee by updating your hardware or displaying items hidden in cabinets.

Decorative Lighting

Consider pendants to be kitchen jewelry: the right one can tie the entire room together or stand out to make a statement. For one of our clients, we just draw the eye upward with a surprising pop of yellow.

Floor Painting

This is our favorite kitchen paint trend out of all of them. Get some painter’s tape and some pretty colors, and you can say goodbye to boring floors for good!

Upstairs Storage

Floating shelves are popular, but we make the case for combining open shelves and traditional upper cabinets. Try putting shelves around a kitchen window to let in more light.

Adaptable Addition

Want to expand your island without having to renovate? That’s why one of our designers doubled the size of a family’s island in one fell swoop by placing a light dining table right next to it. Genius!

Ceiling Painting

The quickest and most effective way to transform your kitchen is with paint. Cover the ceiling to take it to the next level. Just keep a few pieces of wall white to maintain an even color balance.

Wall Tiles

For a modern and clean look, extend your backsplash all the way to the ceiling.

Traditional Aesthetic

When in doubt, Outbuild Interior goes with classics like bistro chairs and subway tile, which never go out of style. Pretty hydrangeas on the counter also help!

Dinner Table in an Instant

Do you want an eat-in kitchen? Extend the countertop over the edge of a block island to create a casual dining area. Chic shades allow you to filter just the right amount of light.

Pot Rack with Multiple Functions

Mount a rack and sturdy metal hooks to make your copper cookware the star of the show. In place of a backsplash, it creates a kitchen-worthy focal point while freeing up valuable cabinet space.

Rugs That Go Together

Fill the floor space around the island with comfortable carpets that are pleasing to the eye and the feet. This beachy kitchen is brought together with the rest of the New Jersey home by a pair of jute carpets.

Coffee Shop

When you have a dedicated spot at home for brewing your morning cup, you won’t miss the barista.

Luminous Tiles

A patterned floor adds a splash of color to a traditional galley kitchen.

Seating at the Bar

Move the gathering from the living room to the kitchen. Vintage stools, both comfortable and stylish, create a welcoming spot to hang out in a Florida home.

Shelving with Tiers

Install bracketed shelves in a previously empty space for a quick decor change. They are less bulky than cabinets, but they will provide additional storage for your most adorable glassware.

Table that is tall

A farmhouse kitchen with plenty of cabinet space features a rustic table instead of a traditional island. When prep time is done, pull up a stool for a quick lunch break.

Ingenious Pass-Through

A family-friendly bungalow discovered a way to cook while keeping an eye on the kids. The window between the living and dining rooms divides the space while keeping the home light and airy.

Small Details

Brass accents and non-traditional pendant lighting added a high-end touch to this romantic kitchen.

Little Things

Color splashes throughout the kitchen add vibrancy without going overboard. This light, creamy kitchen is filled with unexpected details, but the designer’s keen eye for editing ensures that the space is interesting rather than overwhelming.

Color That Isn't Visible

Surprise guests (and yourself!) by painting the inside of your cabinets a bright color. A bright KitchenAid mixer completes the bright space.

Bottom Line

If you have the space, making a cheerful gathering place for the family to talk, eat, and just hang out is always a plus. Pillow up your breakfast nook to ensure maximum comfort. Although open shelving is risky, bursts of bright blue make an even bolder statement and complement the simple white countertops, shelves, and appliances. This kitchen’s bold, blue pendant lights and exposed brick create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
