A rounded stainless-steel range hood serves as the focal point of this sleek contemporary kitchen. Granite countertops coordinate the gray hues of stainless-steel appliances with the warm tones of cherry cabinets. Upper cabinets showcase individual glass panes, creating a visual line that leads to the range.
Light and Dark Design
The use of elegant black against lighter colors is the heart of this kitchen's decorating scheme. Architecturally, pilasters, turned posts, and moldings give the island base and other cabinets the kind of old-world detail worthy of a traditional English Tudor home. Everything is bathed in a buttery light from a well-placed skylight and a window bay above the sink
Large Center Island
Highly functional kitchen islands, such as this extra-tall granite-topped one with its accommodating height and plentiful storage, would be a practical centerpiece for any traditional home kitchen. But it's a great fit here as it matches up beautifully to the similarly detailed off-white cabinets while tying in to the rich brown color of the wood floor and the brown beaded board behind the desk.
Bold Kitchen Backsplash
A focal point is a critical element in the successful design of classic kitchens. In this traditional home, the one area definitely takes center stage with the bold tile backsplash and surrounding cabinet, stained brown in contrast to the vanilla cabinets on either side. The area centers the space and drives the design for the rest of the kitchen
A smart mix of details and cabinet choices can pack a lot of visual punch into small classic kitchens. A series of open shelves and glass door upper kitchen cabinets on either side of the detailed mantel-style hood above the range keeps the interest level high in this traditional home. Molding on the cabinets and island adds to the room's impact
