Diverse seating for many cooks, it’s easy to feel left out when slaving in the kitchen. This dilemma is solved by adding plenty of functional – and super-stylish – seating around a central island. Here, versatility is the operative word. Two trendy bar stools create a small, informal eating area – ideal for a quick snack any time of the day.
This apartment's kitchen features stark white walls and all-white cabinets and countertops for a clean, modern design. Yellow accessories, a scalloped pendant light and distressed, wood paneled accent wall add texture and dimension to the space.
Erin's design plan called for reconfiguring the kitchen layout, adding a refrigerator enclosure, removing the peninsula and creating a new center island, with bar seating, positioned lengthwise in the space.
A custom-designed bar height table sits behind the sectional to add extra seating to the media room. Brown leather barstools are the perfect place to grab a snack while watching a movie. Warm tones of olive green, orange, brown and gold make the room feel like a man-cave.
This extra-long kitchen island has it all: double ovens, a gas cooktop, bar seating and storage. A sleek quartz surface protects not only the top but also the sides from daily bumps and dings, while a special wood countertop runs the length of the eat-in bar.
In the kitchen, gray cabinets and a gray granite give the space an elegant kitchen space. Stainless steel appliances make the room look clean and polished, while pendant lights illuminate the space. The bar seating provides casual seating for the apartment, and with its close proximity to the formal dining area, extends the entertaining space of this apartment.
