Kitchens aren't just for cooking! They are the heart of the home where families gather and life is celebrated. The kitchen should make you happy and act as a fresh space in your home to begin and end your day. As you scroll through these gorgeous kitchens, I hope you are inspired to create a space that not only functions well for your family for years to come, but is also creative and harmonizes with the rest of your home. Take note of the pops of color you see, including painted cabinets, wallpaper, unique flooring, accessories, or simple touches of greenery - a little fresh thinking goes a long way. From farmhouse style to modern and moody, there's something here for everyone.

Elevate With Eclectic Accents
This beauty is a master class in mixed materials, colors, and patterns. The design is brave and bold yet it remains comfortable and inviting to family, friends, and guests that enter in.

Add Glass Cabinet Doors
Adding glass opens up your space by creating a light and airy mood and what a wonderful way to show off your collections of dishes. I also love how the homeowner incorporated an antique table in lieu of an island.

Go Bold With Green
The color green is the color of life, renewal and nature making it a fitting choice for the hub of your home. Adding to the wow factor is making this cast iron stove your focal point in the kitchen as well as using creative hardware on your cabinetry.

Incorporate Natural Elements
Using wood accents in a renovated kitchen is like combining the past and the present. Natural wood feels warm and inviting making it especially nice in a space that's the center of the home. Go outside the norm and add beams to your kitchen area!

Design A Fresh Farmhouse Look
Design ideas such as open shelving gives you the opportunity to showcase your beautiful china. An all white kitchen can be the perfect backdrop for pops of color in unexpected places, not to mention all-white is an on-trend layout and will be for years to come.
Set The Mood
There’s nothing edgier than a bold black color on your island and cabinetry. When going with a statement color like this one, accessorize the rest of the space with whites, golds, and natural elements for a classic look.

Mix Patterns And Colors
Choosing to mix colors and patterns is a brave decision and can be easier said than done. It is achievable, though, with a little planning with a mood board. Blacks, whites, greens and blues have never looked better together. Adding an antique rug and traditional floral wallpaper can make your kitchen feel unique.
Make Your Island The Focal Point
Color packs a punch and your choices are as endless as a little jewel box of gems. Depending on the look you’re going for you can strive for a playful vibe or a moody blue. Painting the island is such an easy way to make a statement.

Focus On The Floor
When it comes to floor design, there are hundreds of ways to go. Whether you choose a patterned tile, a decorative stain, or a bright and bold color, the floor is part of the fun! Keep in mind, kitchen floors work overtime being the most-used floor in the house, so make sure you choose the right material for the job!

Play With Patterns And Colors
The more the merrier in this kitchen! If you want to liven up your white space a bit, add fun patterns and colors with bright accessories, floor paint, and even appliances.
Create An Airy Space With Open Shelving
Have fun when it comes to open shelving - stack your dishes and add items that bring personality to the space. Another benefit to open shelves is that you'll end up using your dishes so much more than if they were tucked in the back of a closed off space.

Repurpose With Rustic Accents
Using thrift finds, antiques, and family heirlooms as your main kitchen accessories can actually be such a beautiful way to bring the past to life and they make wonderful conversational pieces. Reclaimed wood adds a richness to your space. It’s a simple yet elegant way to design a kitchen.

Make It Pop With Paint
Try something unexpected by painting your drawers and cabinets. Bring life to your kitchen area with colors like this beautiful teal hue to spice things up! It's not every day you see a bold space like this one.

Mix Vintage And Modern
How darling is this light blue vintage stove mixed into a modern, all-white space? The marble flooring and gold hardware truly bring out the best in this kitchen!
Adding a large retro appliance is a nod to the 1950’s. It's nostalgic and fun to add a vintage vibe to a modern day kitchen. This blue SMEG refrigerator does the trick in this unique space.
Hope you all enjoyed this fabulous kitchen tour! Until next time - Happy 2021 to all!
