To counter the limited square footage in this home, designers combined the kitchen, breakfast nook and dining room into one larger, easy-flow space. Upper cabinets are accessed by a fun library ladder. The dining table is hand-crafted out of live-edge spalted elm.
The fun, young family who live in this home wanted an open kitchen with a lot of light and space where they could gather together and entertain. For a colorful surprise, the designers created an island with a rich eggplant finish accented with brass details.
Use a high gloss paint in a color that matches your other decor on some of your cabinets to give your kitchen a luxury lacquer look. Use the same hardware throughout the kitchen to maintain a cohesive look, as designer Diane Foreman did in this 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Design Competition winner.
This compact kitchen benefits from an open plan design that incorporates an eat-in bar. Rich wood barstools balance the glossy cabinets and white countertops for a fresh look. A sleek pendant light and recessed lighting keep the space feeling open and bright.
Lucite dining chairs enhance the open, airy feel of this space since light easily travels through them. White oak floors and white Shaker cabinets effortlessly brighten the room. A large peninsula connects the dining and kitchen areas while also defining the two distinct spaces.
This kitchen features a yellow accent wall and brown wooden cabinets. Blue pendant lights hang above the kitchen island, while the nearby dining area boasts a wooden table. Exposed beam ceilings throughout and countertop succulent plants add a Southwestern feel.
With a green accent wall and four wire-backed stools in teal, this modern kitchen doesn't shy away from color. A large island sits front and center for quick meal prep and cleanup while still complementing the sleek modern appliances.
A large center island provides extra counter space and storage in this Craftsman kitchen. One of the main goals for the kitchen remodel was to create more of an open feeling that would flow from one room to the next, as well as connect to the backyard.
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.
The 13-foot kitchen island features brilliant white quartz countertops and opens up to the pub-style dining room. A muted gray-green wall color pairs nicely with the reclaimed wood on the face of the island and the wood-wrapped beams. The runner is actually porcelain tile laid flush with the hardwood floors, creating a unique visual accent.
