Kitchen Design Inspirations

We’re to the point where we’ve started thinking about finishing details. We’ll probably go with an Ikea kitchen just to keep costs down. Doing a Poliform/Varenna kitchen like last time just doesn’t seem possible given our budget. Last night I couldn’t sleep so I got up and googled ‘kitchen design’. There were a lot of horrible and not-so-great kitchens, but a couple caught my eye…

modern kitchen with great use of color

I really like the use of color in this kitchen. It’s a bold use of color, but not jarring which is a rare combination. Of course, the skylight and natural light helps as well. The use of laminate cabinets is also consistent with our budget. I’m wondering what the floor material is – it’s hard to tell…

This next kitchen I could actually see in our place…

Minimal modern kitchen design

This is just really simple and elegant. Once again there are relatively inexpensive laminate cabinets, the counter can be done relatively inexpensively and the backsplash can be done with simple small white tiles. I just have to figure out how a range/stove would integrate into something like that… NYC building code says you can’t have a gas oven unless it’s part of a gas range so our design choices are limited unless we go with an electric oven.
