Vaulted Lakehouse Kitchen with White Walls, Gray Cabinets, Blue Chairs and Island
Skip the demolition phase and keep the base of your current kitchen island to save money. Georgia designer Beth Johnson created a much larger island by using the base of the homeowner’s original island to support a larger countertop. She painted it and added molding to look like wainscotting. She replaced the dated laminate with HanStone quartz, and installed legs to support the counter’s extended width and length.

A natural wood butcher block acts as an island, adding extra counter and prep space to this cottage-inspired kitchen. Clean-lined white cabinets pair with black countertops and a subway tile backsplash for a welcoming, family-friendly space.
Timeless Cottage Kitchen From Sarah Sees Potential

New stainless steel appliances and pops of light turquoise and green paint give the cozy white kitchen a contemporary, timeless look.
This eat-in kitchen has some real retro charm: its floor is painted in green diamonds and a 1970s china cabinet displays green and white dishware. Meanwhile, the beadboard wall and heavy, painted dining table are quintessential cottage fixtures.
A closer look at the kitchen reveals open shelving, which turns ordinary bowls, cups and plates into a stylish yet functional display. White tile and wood panels add texture to the room while still keeping the walls light and neutral.
