Kitchen cabinets in Japanese elm are topped with Calacatta marble and wraparound concrete for the island.
Bates Masi designed the two-inch-thick Carrara marble countertops and white fiberboard cabinetry in the kitchen.
Custom floating shelves and a book shelf under a movable island counter cleans a fuss-free, streamlined look in this kitchen.
In this Palm Springs duplex, for cabinet doors, the architect owner designed aqua blue plywood sliders that park at specific positions, fitting together like puzzle pieces. Contractor Franklin Pineda custom-built these cabinets using Baltic birch plywood from Anderson Plywood.

Known for its thermal properties, rammed earth helps maintain a mild temperature all-year-long. A large fireplace is used to warm the living area in winter.
Stainless steel was selected for the kitchen countertops, and the pair relied on a local industrial sheet metal fabricator to help them prepare the material for residential application. The mix of warm and cool adds depth and dimension to the space.
The couple's kitchen is an exercise in both sustainability and creativity. The island is wrapped with reclaimed scrap wood uncovered from the house during demolition. Chalkboard walls provide a whimsical canvas for graphic images and notes.
This 40 year-old mahogany-paneled Poggenpohl kitchen system was salvaged in a quirky 70s London home. Poggenpohl is the world’s oldest kitchen brand, and this model comes with pocket doors that slide up to reveal drink ware shelves.
Stainless steel cabinets such as these by Bulthaup can give kitchens a strong, industrial feel. Stainless steel also reflects natural light, which can help brighten the space.

Ted Franklin custom cabinets and Artic white Formica countertops can be found in the kitchen. Thermador appliances—including a wine refrigerator—are spaced throughout the room.
The owners requested that the kitchen act as the center of the home so it was built at the rear of the property. “It allowed us to pop off the roof and add clerestory windows to bring in an abundance of sunlight and fresh air,” DiRocco said. The sink is by Blanco and the faucet is by Grohe.

The architects wanted to create as much of a buffer as possible against the urban traffic outside the kitchen. A clerestory window manages to maintain a visual connection with the neighborhood while blocking its noise. The kitchen features Pleat Box pendant lights from Marset and Lio Stools by Roberto Barbieri for Zanotta.
Sleek Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, along with Caesarstone countertops, complete the kitchen.
Mirrored backsplash deflects light from the opposite window and softens a typically, hard, utilitarian surface.
