1. Modern Farmhouse kitchen
The warm wooden beams, wooden counter tops, old brick, farmers sink and farmers gourmet stove/oven as a traditional touch give the modern cabinets this warm farmhouse-family feel. Lots of storage in the cabinets, which look very elegant and very up-to-date. (grey and muted turquoise are the trend colors of 2015)

2. Remodel your 80’s kitchen
I see this kitchen layout a lot. Usually in a 80’s house: small kitchen, dining and family room outside the kitchen area, but close by. If you do not have the option to change your home to a [more] open floor plan overall, then updating your kitchen like this might be your best and most elegant option. Lots of cabinet space, with ceiling cabinets and beautiful crown molding to finish them off. No more dust gatherers, but also no displaying tchotchkes on top of your golden oak kitchen cabinets.

This kitchen is proof that an IKEA kitchen can very well be a customized kitchen with a high end look. This kitchen is young, practical, customized and yet affordable.
11. Rustic Contemporary
Gray is very popular this year and this kitchen design brings it all together. Modern Shaker design, whitewashed cabinets. The shiplap walls bring a coastal feel to the room while the handhewn ceiling beams give the room a rustic yet cozy feel. What you can’t see in this picture is the fabulous porcelain white apron front farmhouse sink that is just to die for.
Why not a black kitchen? Would you dare? Black cabinets with sleek lines, black granite countertops and even the black subway tiles as a backsplash are definitely only for people that like to think and step outside the box. A punch of color provide the lovely yellow island chairs. It’s elegant, it’s urban and perfect for entertaining. Dare! Dare!
13. Traditional [English] Farmhouse Kitchen
Opposite the past Urban Contemporary design stands this farmhouse kitchen with many traditional elements such as the white washed brickwork and an antique transformed cooking appliance. Black countertops and black tile pull the design together. Not much information is available for this design besides that the project is located in England. Lovely inspiration though.
14. Contemporary Shaker Style Farmhouse
How many styles can we mix and [make] match? The contemporary clean, sharp lines of the range hood actually fits quite perfectly with the shaker-like simplicity of the cabinets. The blue cabinets bring interest to an otherwise white and brown kitchen. Seemingly bland, this kitchen offers everything a minimalist likes and a traditionalist needs in a kitchen design.
15. Classic Traditional
I am not easily impressed with classic design. While I am trying to debate the practicality of this double island with booth seating – it is definitely a place for family and friends to socialize. It is closed, not open to the rest of the kitchen reducing the actual size to a visually smaller one. The kitchen promotes togetherness. The focal point of the room makes your eyes go all the way around the room by following all the different curved lines. I am impressed. PS if you need cabinet space then this is the kitchen for you.

Contemporary accents are paired with vintage and rustic accessories. Chalet windows are stunning.
