Brown wood cabinets with spare ornamentation provide a foundation for this craftsman-inspired kitchen. A neutral tile backsplash, painted cabinetry and a kitchen island balances the weighty feel of the heavy cabinets.
This kitchen is truly multi-purpose with the addition of a desk in an out-of-the-way area. The large desk space is created from extra cabinetry and butcher block which matches the kitchen style perfectly.
The new kitchen is bright and airy with updated lighting, new cabinetry, subway tile backsplash and lots of natural wood. Ben fashioned a custom banquette — a special request by Mackenzie as a feature that would remind her of the home she grew up in. The banquette was constructed from reclaimed wood flooring and the seating was butcher block to tie in with the wood countertops.
This large white kitchen pantry features Shaker style cabinet doors, black hardware and three pull-out drawers. A painted white diamond design details the medium grain wood floors, while an arched doorway leads the way to a hallway and closet area.
A custom banquette bench with storage seamlessly blends the craftsman-style kitchen and breakfast nook in this gorgeous space. Warm craftsman cabinets frame the kitchen while a mission-style breakfast table grounds the space.
Three simple pendant lights illuminate the long island in this Arts and Crafts-inspired kitchen. Neutral cabinetry is complemented by granite countertops, while a stainless steel hood above the Wolf range adds a contemporary element to the space.
The linoleum floor was removed and replaced with new hardwood flooring using stained yellow pine meticulously color-matched to approximate the tone of the original heart pine found throughout the rest of the home.
In an open-plan concept, designers strive not only to create separate zones within one large space but to make the end result feel cohesive. In this home, the designers at Carlton Architecture + DesignBuild did both with finesse. “We divided individual spaces with furniture groupings and circulation. Common materials such as steel, rift sawn white oak cabinetry, and dark stained oak floors are used to unify the three areas,” they explain.
This project provided an opportunity to bring some authentic Craftsman ideals to this graciously aging bungalow home in a fresh and innovative way. The owners care deeply about using appropriate details and materials that would be originally appropriate to their home.
They also made it a priority to source materials manufactured in an environmentally friendly and health-conscious manner, and to employ the talents of local craftsmen wherever possible.
Kitchens serve as not only a place to prepare meals, but also a main gathering space in the home. Look through these pictures for great kitchen design ideas and be inspired to create a new look for your kitchen.
