15 Marvelous Mid-century Kitchen Designs

Mid-century homes are spaces that exude a certain look and feel that reminds us of the architectural and general designs available to us during the mid-20th century.

We usually see collectibles and furniture, then out of nowhere, we automatically feel the warmth of the room. It’s like a mix between contemporary and modern design.

With the 15 Marvelous Mid-century Kitchen Designs, you will be able to see more of the exposed beams, tulip chairs and a bit of the Arts and Crafts and organic designs which was dominant in Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs.

Today, we will see much of those influences in the pictures we have collected and you can go ahead and tell us what you think about them!

We love this Burlington kitchen with an island and a cooktop, which serves as a separator between eating and cooking. People who see this photo compliment this space for the shelves created for the cookbooks!

Lin changed everything but the range and range hood. “Probably the only two things we kept in the house,” she says. She added bamboo cabinets, a green glass backsplash and Caesarstone counters.

Laurelhurst House

Daniel Sheehan

The client chose a vibrant glass mosaic backsplash, with elements of the sun and sky reflected in the pieces. Chell says that it was important for her clients to bring elements of color and light into their home. Simple pendant lights hang over the kitchen island so that the backsplash would take center stage.

The cabinets were custom made locally by a cabinet-maker in Maple select with clear finish and the lights are by Rejuvenation. It functions well for a family of four who cook together.

Madison Park Residence

Tammara Stroud Design

The original kitchen featured an island that divided the space and was out of scale for the space, the tile and countertops that were dated. The goal was to create an inviting kitchen for gatherings, and integrate the clients color palette without doing a complete kitchen remodel – and SJvD Design did just that.

Desire to Inspire

The kitchen may be a more utilitarian space, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be treated with the same design approaches as a living room or bedroom. Combining a modern table and chairs with a Southwestern rug and rustic cabinetry creates a vibe that is both eclectic and sophisticated.

Tel Aviv Modern Kitchen


Aviad Bar Ness

Using Eiffel legs here would have looked very light and commanded much less attention. The wood legs are a good way to add another textural element into the mix. Wondering about the light fixtures? They are called Caravaggio P4 Pendants.

Vancouver Retro Revival

Sarah Gallop Design Inc.

We like the walnut cabinets – the wood floor has a great color palette and we also like the little bit of brick on the window walls.

These blue stools pick up on the blue backsplash above the stove. This kitchen feels both contemporary and classic, and this shade of blue fits right in.
