15 Ideas for Contemporary Designer Kitchens

Some women love designer items – like bags, shoes and clothing. Well, in the field of Architectural Design, we also have something we like to call, Designer Spaces. An example for that is this list we have today – 15 Contemporary Designer Kitchens. These are kitchen spaces that most likely showcase extraordinary class and sophistication from popular designers and Architects.

This list comprises of fifteen wonderful kitchen spaces that will blow your minds! The kitchen spaces below are mostly contemporary-modern designs which use materials like wood, concrete and in some cases granite and marble. You might notice if you visit the websites of the designers that they have some materials that they usually use during their projects – we just know that you’ll love them! Take a look below!


Contemporary Designer Kitchens

Ebstone Kitchens

The combination of white and walnut cabinets sure made this kitchen extraordinarily pretty. We love the natural feel to this kitchen space.

Atlanta Home

island design

J Witzel Interior Design

In the overall scheme, what gets delegated to the island is part of the overall flow of working and living patterns. The island is part of a solution, and this is where most of the discussion should focus. Then the details will fall into place.

Buckhead Ranch

old appliances

Renewal | Design + Build

The homeowners kept some of the old appliances, as well as their beloved lime walls, which seem to suit the new space better. Painted cabinets are paired with an espresso-stained island topped with Carrara marble. The honed finish makes it feel less formal.

Contemporary Eco Elegance

textured backsplash tile

Rob Bowen Design

Create an eye-catching feature wall in your kitchen by extending a bold-colored textured backsplash tile all the way to the ceiling. This larger-format tile works best on a wall where you are forgoing upper cabinets, so the pattern can be fully appreciated.

East Aspen Residence

wall of mirrors

Forum Phi Architecture

A wall of mirrors, like the tiled one here, does wonders to the room’s perceived size.

Edmonton House

charcoal highlights


According to Thirdstone, “for the kitchen, the homeowners didn’t want anything too decorative, but rather something to reflect the clarity and refined appearance of the rest of the interior and the exterior. To complement the grey floors, charcoal highlights all the recessed elements in the white Ikea cabinets. The drop-down ceiling is maple wood with a walnut stain, mimicking the island layout below and nodding to the living room cabinets.”

Getaway Contemporary Kitchen

Contemporary lighting

Drudy Design

Contemporary lighting, stainless appliances and accent wall units with frosted glass add interest and complete the urban aesthetic.

Greenbrae, CA

Contemporary Designer Kitchens

Jason Urrutia

This San Francisco kitchen sure is one lovely space. The contrast on the colors used for it is a classic and sure is sophisticated. We love it!

House on the Hill

modern wood design

LaRue Architects

Incorporating wood in a modern kitchen space is beyond measure. We truly admire the works of LaRue Architects just like this Austin kitchen.

Moody Nostalgia in Salt Lake City

long countertop

Lucy Call

Derrick’s kitchen design preserved the original built-ins but completely changed the feel of the space. He removed a white refrigerator that had covered the kitchen window and had made the space feel much smaller. In its place he installed a long countertop and added an under-the-counter refrigerator and freezer beneath.

Philadelphia Home and Property

good flow

Structure Builders

A contemporary kitchen as part of a new home we designed and built. The kitchen was open with good flow between living room, den, and the outdoor patio pool area.

Seattle Contemporary Kitchen

low-flow plumbing fixtures

Place Architects

The Guckenheimers’ home, along with all Place houses, was made with materials that are nontoxic and low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It’s equipped with low-flow plumbing fixtures to conserve water and with Energy Star–rated appliances.

Modern Poggenpohl Kitchen

cabinet cupboards


The cabinets and cupboards of this kitchen are superb! We love the color palette and materials used in this kitchen – we even want to note how smart it is to place a small area for book shelves that stores those cooking books we want close by.

Palermo Loft

classy bar

Gutman + Lehrer Arquitectas

This classy bar will sway visitors into smooth conversation. With a gradient of color on the wall, the room is anything but boring. Chrome details make the space feel crisp rather than dull – always something to consider when using hues in this range.

United States Contemporary Kitchen

Contemporary Designer Kitchens


Re-create elements of the wallpaper. Have wallpaper with distinct shapes or designs? Reflect them in your design. The circular shape of this very unique hood pulls out the circles from the paper while also giving this contemporary kitchen a sculptural element.
