The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house, and if yours is in need of renovating, theres no time like the present. Below are three inspiring kitchen designs that will tempt even the most novice of cooks. Any one of them could be yours! The Modern Contemporary Kitchen. If you want a design that embodies the progressive period we live in, the modern contemporary is the look for you. Cabinets with clean, simple lines are the modern look. Choose from any color or wood you like, and even mix and match. Granites, coppers, and stainless are in for counters and flooring; and concrete, tile, or green products are also trendy. Range hoods are used often as focal points, along with feature-loaded appliances. The English Country Kitchen. If you want a nostalgic and classy look, the English Country Kitchen combines modern conveniences with simple elegance. Combine white cabinetry with stained dark woods. The key to this look is gracefully arched tops and beautifully carved moldings. Mix in open display shelves and built-in appliances. Complete with colorful tile flooring and granite-slab countertops. Lighting is another important element. Combine recessed lighting, under-cabinet task lights, and pendants in key areas. The Rustic Northwestern American Kitchen. Open-beamed ceilings with tongue and grove paneling paired with dark-wood cabinetry begin this rustic theme. A warm yellow and red color palette complements the dark wood to create a warm glow. Hammered copper countertopping combined with classic tiles mixes modern flare with timeless durability. As with the other kitchens profiled, stainless appliances are definitely recommended. Hopefully, these designs have stimulated your creative juices, and there are many more to choose from.
