Have you ever dreamed up your ultimate kitchen? The one you would build if a genie came out of a lamp and granted you one dream home? Think about it, down to the most minute details: What countertops would you choose? Would your cabinets be painted? Which hardware would you pick? What about the range, the stove, or the refrigerator? Would you have an eat-in breakfast nook? Or storage to the ceiling? If you're having trouble picturing it, fear not—we're here to help.
Ahead, we picked the most stunning kitchens that recently made our jaws drop to the floor. These spaces are designed by the best of the industry. They feature dramatic marble slabs, chic French ranges, and ultra-high ceilings. One thing's for sure: The owners of these homes won't run out of kitchen storage anytime soon. These spaces aren't your average kitchen. Which one would you choose if your wildest dreams came true?
The Statement Maker
In the category of kitchens we couldn't possibly have imagined even in our wildest dreams comes the home of Prudence Caroline and Theodore Oliveri. From the mosaic wood ceilings, the dramatic veined marble backsplash, the eye-catching brass range hood mixed with an eclectic mix of leather chairs and antiqued rugs—every aspect of the room is making us swoon.

The Smooth and Dramatic
This stunning kitchen by DISC Interiors had us hooked at the green cabinets, which are perfectly coordinated with the cool marble countertops and stainless steel range. It's moody and fresh all at once. We want in.
The Baker's Haven
If we had to pick one room in Lauren Conrad's home that gave us butterflies, it's her dreamy country kitchen. The wall of subway tiles, the open shelving, and the La Cornue range is all we want in our lives.
The Dream Range
Sometimes, simplicity is best. Such is the case with this Australian kitchen that steals the show with a professional grade range while the rest of the space is left bare: a low marble backsplash and gray seamless cabinets. It's contemporary design at its most perfect.

The Monochrome Dream
In another coup de force by DISC Interiors, this monochrome kitchen is the perfect mix of modern and traditional. The thick marble slabs and neutral palette give the space a modern edge while the ceramic tiles and Shaker cabinets are a nod to classic kitchens. There's a little something for everyone!
The Colorful Galley
Luxury, in our eyes, starts with a pot filler. But it doesn't hurt if it comes with gorgeous French blue cabinets, a Lacanche range, and dramatic mosaic floors like in this Brooklyn kitchen by the talented Elizabeth Roberts.
The Oversize Modern
Studio McGee's latest project is everything we want in a kitchen and more. We love the extra-high ceilings with cabinets that extend all the way to the top. The navy island and beautiful vintage rug draws the eye back down and packs a punch while the outer cabinets blend into the background.
Nest up: These were the best kitchens of the year.
