Looking to make some updates to your kitchen? Why not make it as Insta-worthy as possible? The above photo is a great example: a strong blue or green cabinet color against white walls, matte-black hardware, and farmhouse and classic touches.

The star of this kitchen? Color. This captivating shade of teal is totally on-trend, but anything in the deep green or blue range is a sure winner, as seen below. To get the full look, juxtapose this strong hue with clean white walls. Finally, don't forget to purchase paint tools and supplies for your project.

A charming, traditional-style bridge kitchen faucet makes for an elevated, grown-up sinkscape — and works with just about any style.

For a more affordable option, this one is perfect.

An undermount sink works perfectly with this setup, leaving a clean, uninterrupted line that shows off the faucet's unique, elevated profile.

Another option? This classic cast-iron sink in a bright white.

The slight iridescence and texture of these gorgeous ceramic tiles create a luminous backsplash that warms the space with a slightly pinkish hue and and bounces light beautifully. Set them close together for a clean, modern effect.

Want a quicker fix with a similar vibe? This peel-and-stick option delivers beautiful texture and and shimmer without the grout.

Matte black for kitchens is popular for a reason: it instantly modernizes and lends sophistication to a space. These strike the perfect balance between trendy and classic.

Think you don't need a pot-filler? That's because you've never had one. Make lugging heavy potfuls of water a thing of the past with this handsome version.

This more affordable option one ticks all the boxes at about half the price.

Wide-planked wood floors create an earthy, natural base for the kitchen — but the wear-and-tear can be a deterrent. This striking engineered wood flooring is waterproof and highly stable, making it a great option for kitchens and other high-traffic areas.

Another option? These amazing porcelain tiles look just like wood — and are a snap to clean.

Finally, for a cost-efficient solution, these vinyl planks are easy to install and super-affordable.

We love a seeded-glass fixture, especially when paired with an Edison-style bulb. This matte-black sconce echoes the cabinet hardware and lends an artisanal, hand-crafted feel to the space.

For a slightly more contemporary look, this Globe Electric sconce does the trick.

To finish off the look, we love the farmhouse-style table that doubles as an eating spot and a work surface. This one will provide a sturdy centerpiece to the space.

Stools that combine a natural texture with a modern, matte-black frame are just the thing to finish off the space. Using outdoor pieces will ensure they're easy to clean and maintain.
