1. Chic Contrast
Designer Susan Klimala felt that creating some visual contrast in this nearly all-white kitchen in suburban Chicago was key. “White inset cabinets, quartzite countertops, subway tile and nickel accents provide a traditional feel. The gray island is a needed contrast to the dark wood flooring,” Klimala writes.

2. Black-and-White Beauty
Stacked wall cabinets and a custom range hood provide a backdrop of white in this New York kitchen, while the ebony stained wood flooring and contemporary stools bring in the black. The countertop, which looks like marble but is actually quartzite, ties the two colors together.

3. Bringing In the Green
The designer of this kitchen in Manchester, England, included green elements. The painted island cabinets, pendant lights and tiled backsplash behind the range all pull in the verdant flora of the courtyard seen through the floor-to-ceiling atrium windows.

4. Oversized Impact
This sublime kitchen in the historic district of Boston is awash in cream tones. But the dramatic oversized Goodman pendants by Thomas O’Brien above the butcher block island happily steal the show.

5. ‘X’ Marks the Spot
The contrasting island cabinets painted in Sherwin-Williams’ Bracing Blue make a stylish statement in this New York kitchen. But notice how the metal straps on the pendant lights and the back of the island stools have a similar ‘X’ shape — a design detail that marks the spot.
