Most days begin and end in the kitchen — late-night snacks, bleary-eyed coffee guzzling, out-of-hand dinner parties — it's the hub of household activity. Therefore, it ought to be bright, light, and clean enough to eat off (aesthetically speaking).
We collected 10 serene kitchen spaces with fresh textures and subtle shades to motivate a transformation in your own eating area. Whether you're doing a full-on cabinet makeover or just need some new accessories to mix it up, click through for inspiration. When in doubt? Paint the walls white. Less is more. And, an occasional pop of red makes everyone hungry.
