Brown kitchens that delight

You've seen brown kitchens before—you know, the builder's grade blah caramel cabinets in just about every renovation "before" shot ever.

Mid-tone Cookspace

This mid-tone cookspace from the firm, AlterEco, features a bunch of shorter stained wood boards, which adds a subtle rustic flair to the room. Cool leather stools and copper pendants bring a bit of edge back into the picture.

Light Brown Cabinetry

The light brown cabinetry in this kitchen isn't exactly what you'd expect from a Hamptons beach house, but that's why it's special. Designer Eve Robinson has taken traditional Shaker style flat-panel doors and modernized them with oversized satin bar pulls and handles.

Room with a view

Talk about a room with a view. Even galley kitchens can get in on the brown wood action. This kitchen's mahogany cabinets are original to the 1959 Massachusetts home.

Teal and Orange

Who knew brown paired so well with funky bold colors like mustard, teal and orange. The owners of this modernist cookspace apparently, which takes its design inspiration from Palm Springs' architecture.

Balance light and dark

If you want to go deep chocolate brown, IKEA lead and balance the darkness with a white subway tile backsplash and a classic apron front sink. Seriously, the closer you get to black-brown, the chicer the kitchen.

Wood lower cabinets

The uppers may be white, but carrying the wood from the floor to the lower cabinets and up into the backsplash is a bold design decision that really works. Bonus points go to whoever styled this room up with wooden candle sticks and cutting boards without it looking over the top tree-house.

Italian sleek brown

For proof that the Italians can do a sleek brown kitchen, here's a dream cooking set up from Snaidero. A solid collection of white pottery and a vent hood that looks like a futuristic pendant light doesn't hurt either.
