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.
Reclaimed beams and classic architectural details resonate with the early 19th century time period in which this farmhouse was built. Soft gray cabinets pair with creamy white countertops in this open kitchen, where a large island takes center stage and provides a spot for dining. Dark hardwood floors ground the space.
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.
The large rustic island centers this farmhouse kitchen and provides extra storage and prep space. An open shelf in the island keeps favorite cookbooks handy, while a pair of pendant lights illuminates the pretty white countertops.
When you remove doors, it doesn’t have to be a complete cabinet redo. Instead, let one cabinet be free to display interesting kitchenware, such as cooper kettles, cookbooks and other items out in the open. Enhance the background with tile or wallpaper.
The homeowners were ready to update their 80-year-old home in a historic part of Nashville. The old kitchen was impossibly small and impractical, but Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri remove walls to open up the floor plan, install sleek white cabinets that contrast against the multi-colored tiled backsplash and create a large island with plenty of prep space.
Designers wanted to create a bright, open look in this kitchen, so they brought in white cabinets grounded by gray countertops. For a pop of color, they decided to paint the island a light gray color. Then, they added a Neolith marble countertop to the island which, along with black matte fixtures and an apron front sink, combines the farmhouse feel with the industrial touch.
To create an interesting and stylish centerpiece, designers used an old blanket to give the table a little color. Then, they added milk glass vases and native greenery for life, warmth and rustic charm.
Wrap-around countertops and rugged stone accents add texture throughout this rustic kitchen. Outfitted with a rolling island, industrial pendant lights and an eat-in breakfast bar, the space is open yet cozy.
