The owners of this elegant estate wanted to make sure there was enough casual dining space for their large family, so designers created a breakfast nook that was physically connected to the kitchen. This space has cabinets for storing plates and flatware in a convenient location, as well as additional counter space to make food serving simpler.
In the kitchen, blue, velvet barstools underneath the kitchen peninsula add a splash of color to the otherwise neutral kitchen as well as provides the space with additional seating and another casual dining option.
The doors of the floor-to-ceiling cabinetry in this kitchen are both beautiful and practical, with doors that fold back accordion-style for easy access and matching panels that conceal the refrigerator. Barstools stand at the ready in front of the large blue island for a casual dining option.
Designers wanted to ensure that the homeowners did not lose counter space when they opened up the space, so they added a large island in the middle of the room. They painted it gray to add contrast and color to the kitchen and added blue barstools to give the family a casual dining option.
The island in the kitchen adds counter space and an extra sink, as well as a breakfast bar with seating for four. This addition not only gives the homeowners a casual dining option, but also increases the kitchen's storage and overall functionality.
A large island and custom corner banquette offer casual dining options in this transitional kitchen. Gray tiled walls provide welcome contrast with white cabinetry, while the blue-gray island adds a welcome dose of color.
The standout feature of this open plan kitchen is the reclaimed wood backsplash that warms up the stainless steel appliances and concrete floor. A small island and two stools provide additional counter space and casual dining options.
