This airy kitchen boasts white cabinetry, a white range hood and light brick backsplash. The white beadboard island gives the space a cottage feel, while its black countertop not only provides contrast, but also gives the kitchen a dose of updated style.
Beadboard wainscoting, capped with flexible chair rail, echoes the design of kitchen cabinetry. The wall treatment sections off the living area, furnished with a slipcovered sectional that offers cozy lounging space in a small footprint.
A dramatic change in this kitchen's makeover was the rethinking of an awkward partially-vaulted ceiling. The solution? Close in most of the vaulted area and make a barrel vault over the arched window. Dark stained walnut beadboard draws the eye to this unique feature.
