Well-designed kitchens

By: Sara Cation
We’ve uncovered deliciously designed kitchens in six striking styles that will have even the trendiest kitchenistas drooling (and not over the food). Feast your eyes on these!

This kitchen is bright, cheerful and fit for a family. The palette – white and stainless steel with hits of primary colours – can be easily updated with a simple accessory swap. The island doubles as a breakfast banquette for snackers and sous chefs and the appliances are well dispersed. The microwave, oven, stove and sinks all have their own counter space, so there are never too many cooks in the kitchen. AyA Kitchens and Baths, ayakitchens.com

Simple, clean, airy and exposed – this kitchen feels like it belongs in a top restaurant. Clear counter space leaves chefs with a vast work area. Utensils and dinnerware are easy to reach – either simply arranged on exposed stainless steel shelves or hidden in the large drawers with oversized hardware. All of the design elements are simple and functional. The only embellishment in the choice of a rich and exotic wood, quarter-cut Black Limba. Cuisines Steam, cuisinesteam.ca

This kitchen feels large despite its small space. An island separates where you cook from where you eat, but the entire space feels open and unified, so cooks can enjoy company without straying far from the kitchen. The successful style is all in the rustic, exposed beam and the artistic mosaic backsplash – two design elements juxtaposed for the perfect mix of contemporary and country.

Chic and elegant, distinctive and contemporary, this kitchen feels fit for royalty. With a matte black base and sparkle from its gold-leaf glass cabinets to its crystal lighting accents, this place packs a palace-style punch. Its utility features including the sink, stove and range are barely visible and other unsightly appliances stay hidden behind the vast cabinetry, so even when in the kitchen, the task of cooking feels a world away.

White kitchens like this feel so fresh and clean, but how do work station walls stay crisp white? Try a full white subway-tile backsplash. Durable and easy to clean, it’s the perfect solution to a white kitchen that endures a lot of wear, not to mention a classic look that never goes out of style. With shiny silver and stainless steel accents, light wooden countertops and floors, and Mullion cabinet doors for introducing subtle dishware accents, this is a great kitchen for chefs who love the crispness of white.

Black and white, but warm all over, this kitchen serves up the antiquated charm of an Old World interior equipped for a modern chef’s needs. The embellished cabinetry gives the impression of classic columns, and the wrought iron of the hardware and pendants is another throw to the past. The sign, which reads ‘kitchen’ in Italian, reminds us that, historically, the best laid meals are homecooked. The Kitchen Guy, thekitchenguy.ca
