This striking white kitchen, as seen on HGTV's Live In Vern's House, features an open-plan kitchen that connects to the living area. Vibrant orange accents and flea-market finds, as well as international and Asian-inspired elements, help fill the space with visual interest and a playfully contemporary vibe.
This kitchen has plenty of space for food prep, cooking and dining thanks to a long counter-top and large granite-wrapped island. The four clear Lucite bar stools keep the emphasis on the kitchen's streamlined design, including quarter-cut walnut, smooth veneer.
White cabinets will complement almost any decor you want to choose — now or 20 years from now. “To choose a style, consider the existing architecture of the home and how the cabinetry works visually within its environment,” says designer Tatiana Machado-Rosas of Jackson Design and Remodeling. “A raised panel is often a good choice for more traditional styles, while a Shaker style (shown here) works with a modern, simple design.”
An in-kitchen eating area - perfect for kids and family or for entertaining - is a key feature in this open-plan kitchen. The symmetry, along with the all-white cabinetry and tile backsplash, make the room feel large, clean and organized. Modern-style hanging globes give the space an industrial look while providing plenty of lighting.
An open concept design and a pass through window make this traditional kitchen easily accessible to the rest of the home. Creams and pale yellows create a friendly, welcoming mood with the chandelier bringing in a touch of elegance.
