Let’s close out this post with a kitchen that goes big with classic details! The cabinet door panels and tasteful tile patterns gain a wonderful stylistic complement by way of vintage-inspired decor. | Visualizer: İbrahim Ethem kısacık.
Marble brings luxurious appeal to this open plan kitchen. While the living room remains casual and classic, it’s hard to ignore the luxurious materials in the background. | Visualizer: Daniel Nagaets.
Simple, clean, and minimalistic – the interesting thing about this kitchen is how unbroken all of the surfaces are. Even the floor tiles are huge and contribute to its uncomplicated aesthetic. | Visualizer: Tero Design.
Typography makes a bold statement in this simple white and black kitchen. The motivational phrase on the wall is worth remembering if your recipes don’t always go as planned. | Visualizer: Mockup Render.
Chevron floorboards, a rustic sliding ladder, and classically-influenced chairs add just the right amount of traditional influence to this otherwise strikingly modern kitchen. | Visualizer: Oliver Wende.
Curved surfaces meet crisp lines as a source of contrast that goes beyond the black and while color theme alone. The spherical brass chandelier underscores the warmth of the wood floors. | Visualizer: Vlad Mishin.
Futurism is such a concrete style. It makes sense to choose a neutral color theme since the larger elements are so difficult to change later on. Here, just switching the color of the chairs would make an incredible difference yet would remain easy to alter later. | Designer: Jovo Bozhinovski.
Also featured in the previous kitchen, the chairs are the work of Verner Panton. They were designed in the 60s but remain just as impressively forward-thinking today. The unique dining pendant light also helps to anchor the space. | Designer: n lab.
This kitchen takes a more subtle approach to a futuristic aesthetic with a kitchen worktop that angles inward at the leg. In terms of color, notice how the black and white elements swap places for contrast. | Designer: Poliform.
Chalkboard paint appears in this kitchen too, this time just to the left of the microwave and stove. This chalkboard features a little weekly plan template to make life easier, but grocery lists and recipe instructions are fun ideas as well. | Visualizer: Wiktoria Ginter.
Strong textures play with the light and bring more variation to these matte charcoal cabinets. Many of the decorative vases and bowls reside on the greyscale spectrum to match. | Visualizer: Nefeli Kallianou.
Black floors add character to the solid white kitchen surfaces. While this space would likely look wonderful year-round, the winter colors are a perfect complement for the palette used here. | Visualizer: AEM Studio.
Unique angles give this all-white island a distinctively ultra-modern aesthetic – but the window backsplash is the star of the show. It’s at just the right height to enjoy from the breakfast stools or even the sofas on the other side of the room. | Designer: Void Inc.
While this kitchen doesn’t have a breakfast nook, the dining table does feel like an overall part of the design thanks to its self-contained “floor” that makes it look an extension of the islands. | Visualizer: Dekaa.
Multiple rows of indoor herb planters above the kitchen island give homeowners access to plenty of fresh herbs to clip, and generally contribute to a nice aesthetic with the addition of decorative plants as well. | Visualizer: Bartosz Domiczek.
Minimalistic kitchens often benefit from some type of sculptural or otherwise eye-catching addition to serve as a focal point. This one uses creatively-routed pendant lights as both a decoration and a functional enhancement to the island. The Patricia Urquiola Last Minute kitchen bar stools also add to the minimalist beauty of this design. | Visualizer: Inuti.
Same technique, different approach – this kitchen’s focal point is yet another light, but this one stands out simply because of its contrast against the background. The stools used in both kitchens are from the Last Minute collection by Patricia Urquiola. | Visualizer: Tamizo.
Color blocking is a technique that applies to black-and-white interiors too. This one uses an all-white kitchen island setup, but makes a dramatic impression with black chairs and pendant lights at the dining room table. | Visualizer: Minimal Architects.
Subtle geometric influences bring this matte black kitchen to life. The standing white volume stands as a beacon of light, and offers a cool vertical garden and a few small regular containers to provide on-demand herbs for cooking. | Visualizer: Who Cares Design.
Black-on-black kitchens look gorgeous as well! This one uses different textures for contrast and depth. Nearby, a green rug and a wild vertical garden bring color to this dark and sophisticated style. | Visualizer: Lucas Filip.
