Shallow cabinets provide storage and extra counter space without taking up too much space in this compact and oddly shaped kitchen. A low backsplash of small square tiles mimics the color in the larger backsplash across the room.
That's no optical illusion: This kitchen really is shaped like a wedge. Rather than fighting the odd shape, the design embraces it with an acutely angled island and banquette. The space is decorated with a funky '50s vibe that matches its quirky shape.
The lighting installed above a kitchen island in an open concept great room can really add to the overall style and charm of its design. Best described as family-friendly and transitional, the great room’s kitchen is grounded by a trio of polished chrome and frosted glass pendants that are graphic in shape and coordinate with many of the round accents used throughout each zone. Most designers recommend installing pendants in groups of odd numbers for proper visual balance.
