Gourmet Kitchen in Disguise

Don't be fooled by the rustic, exposed beams and chunky details in this farmhouse kitchen -- it's anything but rudimentary. High-end appliances, elegant task lighting and ample counter space are just what a skilled cook needs to make this kitchen sing. Thankfully, the extra-wide staircase will accommodate a stampede when the dinner bell rings!
