Kitchens are full of elements like stone, marble, and stainless steel which can sometimes make it feel cold. Infuse this space with warmth and a designer vibe by adding a vintage inspired runner. They’re loaded with color, character and have a look that’s totally on-trend.

Designer kitchens always have interesting seating and the island is a fun place to add some statement making stools. Choose a contrasting color so they don’t simply blend into the island. It’s also important to choose a style that’s different from, but compliments, any chairs in a nearby space such as a kitchen nook or dining room.

Implement modern lighting. One common element you always see in a kitchen with a designer look is unique lighting. Take the time to find interesting pendants to hang over the island or sink and you’ll definitely want to choose a statement making chandelier to elevate your eat-in kitchen.

Style your kitchen with cool accessories. We’re not talking about typical pieces like wine racks and tabletop decor. Go beyond typical kitchen accessories and consider pieces that you would use in living spaces like this pretty pottery and marble jacks. Place them on a tray on the island and tuck them into open shelving for a chic look.

If your kitchen has a nook then an eye-catching table is a must for creating designer style. Even a classic table can have a modern twist. For example, this round table has a modern pedestal and the two toned finish is a moody contrast in a bright white kitchen.
