Our most covetable kitchens of 2017
Kitchens are often said to be the hub of the home—and since you spend so much time in here, they deserve to be designed and decorated just right. Here, we've rounded up some of our favourite kitchens we've featured this year to inspire you to amp up your home's hotspot.
The white oak ceiling treatment and island base help define the kitchen in the open-plan space, while the stools reinforce the warmth with their wooden bases and nubby tactile upholstery.
Designer Amy Dillon grounded the white cabinetry with dark grey accents — but only a few. “I wanted the space to age gracefully, not look like that typical two-tone kitchen you see so much,” she says. Marble-look Caesarstone countertops, which flow into a waterfall edge on the island, help achieve that goal.
Homeowner and designer Tiffany Pratt asked her contractor to use leftover cabinetry and neon Plexiglas to build a narrow shelving unit next to her stove. It’s a bright burst of colour with a modern touch, providing a pleasing contrast to the classic Shaker-style cabinetry.
