In this loft-style home, a kitchen peninsula helps define the cooking and eating areas without blocking the magnificent view seen through floor-to-ceiling windows. Red and blue accent tiles add color to wood cabinets and black and stainless steel appliances.
A galley kitchen with no windows lightens up with silver pine cabinetry and stainless steel countertops. Sandblasted Plexiglas doors on the uppers look like windows but conceal the cabinets’ contents.
Stacking small square cabinets with in-cabinet lighting takes advantage of a tall ceiling and offers display space that doesn’t clutter counters. A green glass mosaic tile adds color to dark cabinets and countertops.
A glass tile backsplash in multiple shades of blue adds color and sparkle to mid-tone wood cabinets with minimal molding. Long, thin curved stainless steel pulls also say “contemporary.”
The copper ventilation hood makes a striking focal point in this open kitchen. A 48-inch Viking rangetop with griddle sits near the refrigerator for easy access. The small butcher-block island is on rollers and matches a larger island with seating.
Contemporary framed flat panel cabinet doors feature traditional elements such as inset corner details and handmade hardware. A combination of light and dark natural wood colors in the flooring and cabinetry creates an unfitted look.
