Look how far kitchens have come in terms of style, quality, and function. I love these Newcastle kitchens. Theyre everything I think of when I imagine my dream kitchen. A large center island, unlike yesteryear, is mandatory in today’s kitchen. Perfect for gathering, this white-painted maple-top is a stunner accented by a stainless pot and utensil rack above. Granite is the worktop of choice along the cabinets. This look goes with the ever-popular white again, but with retro appliances and stools in black plus matching artwork, the effect is completely different. The Nero Assoluto granite and oak island is sleek as can be. Note the handle-less cabinetry. Here, weve got the black granite on the countertops, but what a statement it makes paired with stainless steel work surfaces alongside it. The hardness is counterbalanced by soft-looking maple cabinetry from floor to ceiling. A very unique design. Painted cabinets really make this kitchen. The maple island is joined with the soft-gray painted cabinets for a classic kitchen with modern sophistication. The matching maple drawers up top are a charming accent, and along with the maple shelf, unite the room. If Ive learned anything from Newcastles roundup, its that you can create drastically changing designs from the same basic materials. They did four amazing kitchens from white-painted cabinets, two hues of granite, maple, oak and stainless steel. Well done.
