A bar made from zinc anchors this sleek, modern kitchen and ties the design to a zinc dining banquette located just out of view. The fronts of the refrigerator and wall ovens sit flush to the understated cabinetry, and a large picture window offers views of Manhattan.
With seating for eight, the large dining table in the middle of this newly remodeled kitchen gives the homeowners a great space to entertain, while the combination of a farmhouse table and wrought iron chairs adds visual interest to the space.
Reworking an outdated space, such as this kitchen, can be challenging in an older home but not impossible. This pre-Civil War stone barn was moved to its final resting place, stone by stone, from its original location. The designer added contemporary elements such as a marble-topped kitchen island and modern appliances to create a fully functional cooking and dining space.
Stylish white cabinets with a matching range hood line the wall in the open design of this eat-in kitchen. A decorative neutral and brown tile backsplash matches the hues in the copper-colored marble countertops. The water color look on the green, yellow and blue pendant lights adds life and color to the space.
The island in this transitional kitchen showcases a large single bowl stainless sink, hot/cold water filter, spacious prep and seating area. Large voluminous drawers are a favorite of busy cooks for easy access and unbeatable storage.
Walls between the kitchen and hallway and the kitchen and dining room were removed, the range was moved and an island was added for family meals. “This family of four was thrilled to have their kitchen open out to the dining area with a large peninsula,” designer Anjie Cho reports.
As seen on HGTV's Design On a Dime, this small, yet sophisticated eat-in kitchen offers a seamless look thanks to a crisp, clean paint job. Small pops of color, plus decorative bar stools, allow the neutral wood countertop and cabinets to really shine.
Designer Nancy Blandford calls this kitchen "party central." Designed around two support columns, the massive U-shaped island can be approached from six sides. One side is for seating, another acts as the bar and the other four sides are for meal prep and serving.
Gorgeous white marble countertops and the stainless steel appliances contrast beautifully against the blue cabinets. This stunning island is painted bright blue and creates interest and fun in the space.
Beautiful rustic wood cabinets complement the wood-topped island in this open, eclectic kitchen. A mix of recessed lighting and pendant lights highlights the stainless steel countertops and triple stainless steel sinks.
