This 1980s kitchen posed a particular design problem with a 15-foot brick wall that occupied half of the kitchen. The decision was made to embrace the brick’s industrial feel and incorporate that style into the rest of the remodel. Birch cabinets in sable were chosen to complement the pale walls and provide a sleek contrast to the ruggedness of the brick. Glass front doors on some of the cabinets add visual interest. White marble countertops lend an air of elegance to the work surfaces while dark slate floor tiles continue the industrial theme. Stainless steel appliances and a large exhaust hood complete the look.


This outdated, humdrum kitchen was revamped into a contemporary showpiece by opening up the space, updating the lighting and maximizing storage space. A dividing wall and island that made the room feel cramped were removed. Track lighting was replaced with a combination of recessed lighting and hanging lamps. The cherry cabinets were finished with crown molding and beadboard to achieve an upscale look. A pantry surrounding the refrigerator and cabinets in the large bar area provide ample storage space.


The owners of this 1929 home wanted to redo their kitchen in a design and color scheme that was more suitable to their home’s traditional style. The refrigerator was moved back into an existing closet, and the stove was moved to the opposite wall to create a galley layout. The 42-inch tall upper cabinets and copious drawers in the lower cabinets allow for more storage than the previous configuration. By choosing different colors for the upper and lower cabinets while keeping the door style the same, the look remains harmonious yet still delivers a visual punch.


The awkwardly designed kitchen in this 1890s home was extensively renovated to take advantage of the additional space afforded by the adjoining enclosed porch. The unsightly bathroom entrance was relocated to another room, and an oven was installed in its place. An expansive island, featuring a cooktop stove and plenty of deep drawers for storage, was finished to match the oak cabinets. Glass doors were also used on many of the cabinets to give the kitchen a lighter feel.


This kitchen needed to be modernized and made more functional while still reflecting the period charm and architectural features of a 1918 farmhouse. Mission-style cabinets accented by crown molding were done in white to add contrast to the lime green walls and black granite countertops. A backsplash in white and stainless steel subway tile complements the stainless steel sink. Art deco lighting and fans echo the style of the rest of the home.
