    Honestly, they are all stunning (with the exception of number 8 which is oddly rustic and unrefined compared to the others), but I’d go with 1. I think the alcoves for the statues is incredibly beautiful and adds a formality that I love. Clive by far does the classiest kitchens. Prices are incredible, but you are paying for the best craftsmanship.

    Number 5 has to be my favorite, but number 6 is also nice. I actually like number 8 since it looks more down to earth than the others. Number 1 is my least favorite; it’s way too over the top. I would not want plaster children in alcoves in my kitchen.

    #1 – too formal and monochromatic for me
    #2 – I’d need more pics to judge this one but I don’t really like it based on this particular pic
    #3 – This one I like. I like when island counters are made of wood. I probably would have picked hardwood over tile for the flooring.
    #4 – This one’s just okay, I neither particularly like or dislike it.
    #5 – Pretty nice but I’d prefer more color
    #6 & 7 – These look like essentially the same kitchen, just with different colors and finishes…7 is too feminine for me, I like 6 better.
    #8 – This kitchen is the odd one out…much different from the rest. I don’t really like it too much, it’s too yellow.

    Overall I think I like #3 the best.

    One consistent complaint I have with all of these is the use of fancy chandeliers…I just don’t feel like they fit in or belong in a kitchen. Seriously quality work though, on all of them.

    Again, NONE of them! I love how all contemporary houses are regularly trashed here on HOTR, as being “totally uncomfortable, sterile, and I’d feel like I was making the place FILTHY just by bringing a drink into the living room”……but THESE absurdly OVERdone “cathedral” kitchens absolutely take NOT just the cake, but the ENTIRE BAKERY!

    I’d be the one terrified of spilling or burning something in these Louis the Sixteenth show places…..and that’s just the reason they’re uselessly ornate and intimidating. The entire (mostly American) design process that’s turned kitchens in utterly silly showplaces in the is past 20 or so years is idiotic in the extreme. The vast majority of younger, and I’d say half of middle-aged people today couldn’t boil water to save their lives…….but they still insist and worse yet, DEMAND kitchens THIS ornate? Pitiful.

      Well Barney, these kitchens are contemporary kitchens, but utilizing classic design elements. When Clive Christian first started designing kitchens like this back in the 1980s, at first everyone said he was nuts, as kitchens were supposed to be utilitarian. However, now having a luxury kitchen is perfectly accepted. Nothing wrong with such a nice kitchen IMO.

      Also, Clive Christian is British, not American.
