Yes, it’s cliché, but the kitchen really is the heart of the home. These kitchen design photos will give you inspiration to redesign your kitchen into a space that is truly unique to your home, your family and your lifestyle.

  • An open floor plan is perfect for a kitchen that’s the center of a home. Family can saddle up to the island for a snack or cook together without feeling cramped. Plus, there’s plenty of cabinet space to keep the countertops looking spick-and-span.

  • The Stickley door style in red birch provides a clean look while retaining the richness of the wood tones. Refrigerator panels help disguise the large appliance maintaining the minimalist palette.

  • Base cabinets with no hardware hide large storage areas under the bar.

  • The kitchen island — finished with a light stain and topped with Quartz countertops — feels set apart from the rest of the open space. Bar stools along the edge allow for ample seating. Open shelving stained in the same color as the island helps pull it all together.

  • A monochromatic color palette plays up textures and lines. Here, the white cabinetry complements the white backsplash and marble countertop. Large steel cabinet pulls build on the modern, clean lines of the space.

  • A peninsula extends the counter space down the hallway to create a beverage area. The result is a G-shaped kitchen that feels large and is perfect for entertaining.

  • Add interest and visual appeal by installing an eye-catching backsplash. Vertically placed travertine and black glass tiles create height. Pendant lights in similar tones and styles complement the room. Granite tops the island and counters with a laminated Ogee Step edge. A long wall of perimeter cabinets offers ample storage, a must for busy families and entertaining.

  • A kitchen with an open flow helps keep everything (and everyone!) moving. Bar stools allow for a quick bite eaten at the counter. This cabinetry is a mix of painted wood and gray-stained bamboo.

  • A niche functions as an espresso bar and display unit in one. Everyday items are kept on hand for the first shelf,
    while the decorative touches are best on top.
