Crafted of oak and incorporating dramatic purple cabinetry, this kitchen is an antidote to all the white and gray designs around. “I like color and enjoy putting some into my kitchens,” says Stephen Graver, who designed this striking room. “There are a lot of gray kitchens out there!”
Bold Traditional Palette. Eye-popping colors aren’t just for contemporary kitchens. This handsome kitchen features an oversize bold red range set in rich, dark chocolate cabinets. The tile backsplash has an intricate pattern to it but, because of the neutral colors used, it complements rather than competes with the range.

Using cabinet doors with touch-activated latches or integrated reach-in pulls reinforces the clean lines of your new kitchen, which subtly helps it appear bigger. It also gives you fewer little items to bump into or get caught on your clothing, so the space will feel easier to move in too.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles, and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous, however, which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller, stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
The first project on our list features a wonderful rustic backsplash made from the reclaimed wood of old shipping pallets. You can see this backsplash is a great DIY project opportunity for your kitchen because it uses inexpensive materials to create great looking results. If you decide to have this kitchen backsplash, locate some old pallets with boards in good condition, scrub the boards clean, and cut them into smaller sized pieces.
