The stately stylings of this expansive kitchen mean meals around the island feel as grand as in many homes' dining rooms. Metal, lantern-like pendants and exposed wood beams give a hint of rustic charm to the otherwise white space.
The original layout of this Florida apartment separated the dining and kitchen areas, making the home feel dark and cramped. By removing some of the walls, the ocean views can now be enjoyed from the dining table, the barstools in the kitchen and the large living room.
A second view of the kitchen shows how the new appliances were incorporated into the space. Dark wood paneling behind the refrigerator and microwaves contrasts against all the white used in cabinetry and countertop. The double hood was selected for its maximized function, as well as for its modern and sculptural look. We love how the circular design contrasts against the linear and angular finish to the rest of the kitchen.
Twin kitchen islands allow for more prep space and room to dine in this lovely, contemporary kitchen. Hardwood flooring adds warmth to the chic design, and a combination of blue pendant lights and recessed lighting help brighten up the space.
