The Chicest Kitchens on the Internet This Year

If kitchens are the heart of the home, the ones we shortlisted for best of the year in 2016 have a lot of love to give. We may be living in a rental apartment or a fixer-upper pre-renovation, but that doesn't mean we can't take a moment to daydream about our ideal kitchen—one that features floor-to-ceiling storage, designer lighting, and Carrara marble backsplashes. While we saw a lot of great kitchens this year, these ones have a certain je ne sais quoi that makes them stand above the rest—an intricate detail, a showstopping counter stool, or a clever color scheme.

If you're planning a renovation in 2017, even better. We rounded up all of our favorite editor-approved kitchens in one place to make your inspiration sourcing that much easier. Ahead, visions of brass pot-fillers, waterfall islands, and wood fire ovens await. Look no further, these are the only spaces you'll need to inspire your own dream kitchen.
