    The kitchen of our 2015 Cottage at Cloudland Station features custom cabinets painted in Olympic's Castile, a bespoke pendant with glass globes found at an antiques warehouse, and island top made of reclaimed chestnut. Designer: Yvonne McFadden.

    The kitchen redo of this 1940s California bungalow included moving the sink to a new home in an existing bay with all-new windows for front-yard views. Open shelves and storage cubbies keep the space feeling airy and bright.

    Subway tiles set in a chevron pattern go from dark to light as they move up from the floor, creating a stunning accent wall in this mod kitchen.

    Side sconces add additional light while also adding character and an element of customization to this farmhouse-style kitchen.

    Look We Love: Gray Kitchen Cabinets with Brass Hardware.

    A wall of windows provides just enough separation while keeping sight lines clear to dining and living areas.

    We're feeling the red and white vintage kitchen vibe these days!

    A coffee-lover's kitchen if ever there was one.

    Ooh la la! French farmhouse kitchen with deep, double marble sinks.

    The chevron panels in these guesthouse kitchen cabinet fronts were inspired by doors designer Steven Gambrel saw in Virginia, where he studied architecture in college. Their graphic lines give the small space major decorative appeal. The open shelves above, with their stepped-block brackets, and the simple paneled wall behind, add supporting layers of interest and detail.

    A trio of double-hung windows and an apron sink with period faucet from rohlhome.com set the tone in this farmhouse kitchen.

    A kitchen naturally has a lot of hard surfaces—in this case, a stainless-steel range and slab marble countertops and backsplashes. A true warm gray on the cabinets—and on the crown molding ringing the room—helps soften those elements while unifying the space and complementing the wood floor, door, and accessories says interior designer Barbara Westbrook.

    Exposed copper piping doubles as utensil storage in this urban chic kitchen.

    From this to that--a stunning kitchen remodel that cost just $3,000. See how this couple did it here.

    A skirted kitchen sink gives easy access to cleaning supplies underneath and adds a classic touch of farmhouse style.

    Instead of an expensive tile backsplash, this family of enthusiastic cooks chose a pot filler that stands in as a focal point above the stove.

    Custom gray cabinets cover the fridge in this spacious kitchen, and incorporate leaded-glass sidelights that the owner bought years ago at an antiques fair, plus a magnetic chalkboard for notes.

    Vintage-look custom cabinets painted in a warm neutral, a worktable island, and a band of bold blue-gray paint give this farmhouse kitchen a fresh look.

    I see more and more people using a mix of surfaces and facings in kitchens, instead of standard matching cabinetry. Incorporating new and old furniture gives the space a unique look. Reclaimed wood is still a big trend in flooring, countertops, cabinet fronts, walls, and furniture. With its deep colors that change and improve with time and wear, it's perfect for kitchens.
