Though deep green is an arresting color for kitchen cabinets, you’ll never see the style police issuing a summons here. This soothing hue creates a look that’s warm and welcoming but with a significant sense of style. The simple single-panel cabinets feel as though they were born in this setting; a stainless faucet and silver hardware add plenty of polish. No need to proceed with caution: The mellow-yellow walls form a backdrop as natural as a broad splash of sunlight.

Some dark wood kitchens can look as dated and dreary as a wagon wheel. And some light wood spaces suffer from country cuteness. What makes this room so appealing—and not a cliché—is the way it has forged a smartly stylish mix: The white cabinets balance the dark ones, and the zigzag tiled floor that shifts from dark to light gives the room waves of energy.

Kitchens have rarely warmed up to gray, but this major fashion color is finally having its moment. Not quite a pastel, quirkier than a neutral, it brings warmth to the heart of your home without the cliché of “kitchen” colors. We love it paired with steely hardware, accessories and appliances, and a farmhouse table. Cover these grays? Never!
Even in a room without loft-like proportions, a red brick wall introduces an edgy, industrial feel. This kitchen builds on that spirit, creating urban flair with ebony countertops, oven hood and window frames, and a pair of gleaming silver faucets. Deep brown wood cabinets and open shelving offer a relaxing break from all the drama.
Contemporary, say hello to traditional: You’re living together in an airy kitchen with a magnificent view. This marriage of opposites works because the look is balanced. Sleek black counters atop cotton-white cabinets are set against white bead board walls. Dark brown floor-to-ceiling cabinets and cherry floors layer on rustic warmth, while a Champagne Bronze pull-down faucet flaunts a mod personality.
