Not only is there a cozy banquette in this bright, red kitchen, there is also an eat-in island. This space, accented by modern, glass pendant lights and clear, modern barstools, is perfect for casual breakfasts with the family or as extra seating for a larger gathering.
Keeping with the ultra-detailed design of the Victorian home, this updated kitchen shows off plenty of interesting features. A gorgeous white subway-tile backsplash and white cabinetry contrast beautifully against the dark concrete countertop. A coffered ceiling gives the room depth, while the red kitchen island brings in a bright splash of color.

The main part of this modern kitchen is elegant and functional. Plenty of cabinet space provides storage for the homeowners, while a large kitchen island provides extra counter space, as well as extra seating. To give the otherwise neutral space a pop of color, a red accent wall was added to make the space warm and inviting. State of the art, stainless steel appliances, pendant lighting and clear barstools give the space a modern flair.
This stunning kitchen island is painted in Red Bay by Sherwin-Williams and works wonders for creating interest and fun in the space. It looks especially chic with the concrete countertop that is also carried throughout the rest of the room, tying the entire look together.
This elegant, modern bathroom is a funky, yet sophisticated space. Gray and white wallpaper gives the space a little texture, while natural light spills into the space from the large window on the far wall. Cool pieces, such as the modern sink and glass chandelier, finish the space, giving it a splash of elegant personality.
The back door of this home opens into a bright, inviting mudroom. With a tile floor, this room is very easy to clean, while wall to wall cabinets adds storage. Orange and red pillows accent the door and add pops of color to the space, beckoning guests into this stylish home.
This open, contemporary kitchen has high white ceilings and light wooden cabinets. The large island features a dark countertop and wooden bar dining area. Red pendant lighting adds a touch of color to the light kitchen.
The prep space in this kitchen gives the homeowners easy access to everything they need right at their fingertips. With glass front upper cabinets, no dish or gadget is every too far out of reach, while lower cabinets provide discreet storage. A wine cooler in the corner and plenty of counter space help the homeowners get ready for entertaining and family meals.
Previously, the eat-in portion of this kitchen contained and old, outdated breakfast nook with banquettes. The homeowners loved this unique addition to their space, but it was in desperate need of updating, so designers scaled back the walls to create a larger space for the nook, then they modernized it with a bright wall color, silver leather covering on the banquettes, a modern table and a red, modern chandelier to match the walls. To help light the space, designers added double hung windows to let in plenty of natural light, making the space, bright, warm and inviting.
To create a functional cabinet out of those difficult corner cabinets, designers added two custom, pull out shelves. Not only does this double the usable space in the cabinet, it puts all of the homeowners gadgets within reach, creating a storage solution that truly makes life easier.
When considering a renovation, the homeowners had several items on their wish list. The back stairs needed to be restored; the eat-in area needed to be updated, and the homeowners wanted the individual spaces in their home to be defined, so designers made these dreams a reality. The stairs that had been closed off have been renovated and are now functional. The eat-in area has been modernized by pushing the walls back to create more space and by adding a red accent wall and modern furnishings. To create the delineation homeowners wanted between spaces, designers dropped the ceiling to create a clear pathway from the front of the house to the back, giving each space its own separate area while still keeping the home connected.
In this corner of the kitchen space, designers have added a prep area to solve the homeowners' countertop woes. Modern, white cabinets keep the space bright and stylish, while dark, granite cabinets add warmth to the space. Textured wallpaper puts the finishing touch on this small space, giving it personality and dimension while creating an elegant, yet still functional space.
A place for everything, and everything in its place makes a happy kitchen. To create kitchen happiness for these homeowners, designers used drawers disguised as cabinets to help make the best of the space, while maintaining a stylish, modern facade.
