Outfitted with dark cherry cabinets, and stainless steel appliances, this kitchen is a chef’s dream and a great household hub. Just steps from the kitchen, a breakfast nook with a glass dining table is the perfect spot for the family to gather in the morning or for other casual meals. A lighted display area above the pantry showcases the homeowners’ collections from their travels.
This bright kitchen features a pairing of white and brown wood cabinets with white stone countertops and several shelving options. Pendant lights hang above the kitchen island, which has a sink and built-in dishwasher. Red accents throughout the kitchen tie in the sofa that can be seen in the adjacent living room.
Storage is essential in any home but can be even more crucial in a laundry room. Designer Sarah Richardson doesn't want to take away from the floor space, so she designs the storage as close to the ceiling as possible. The shelved cabinets run horizontal above the washer/dryer unit and provide the perfect place to hold towels and other laundry essentials.
All new white cabinets and black marble countertops bring a modern look to the kitchen, and two hanging globe light fixtures illuminate the breakfast bar. The new refrigerator is located where shelving once was and a new faucet with an apron sink was installed. The kitchen is surrounded by a beveled subway tile backsplash, and a wooden awning brings color to the kitchen and shades the window overlooking the side yard.
"Today's homeowners want a mix of hardware on their cabinetry" says Abbi Williams, an Atlanta-based designer. "Both knobs and various length pulls. After your cabinetry has arrived, grab a glass of wine and a roll of painter's tape to lay out your hardware. Do you want two knobs or one on those long drawers? Cabinet pulls come in 5 inch-14 inch lengths. Tear off tape representing the length you want and put it on the cabinets as a reminder of what hardware was ordered to go where. I can't tell you how many times the hardware showed up and we can't remember what we ordered for where."
Full-wall cabinetry and an island provide ample storage space to keep this kitchen's surfaces uncluttered. The gray island countertop connects to the sleek black dining table. White leather chairs pop against the black, adding a little contrast to the neutral palette. A row of pendant lights and stainless steel cabinet hardware complete the look.
Tiny kitchens can feel claustrophobic when cabinets are towering overhead. Many cooks can't reach what's in them and the overall feeling is boxy and closed in. Get organized and trade the top cupboards for open storage. Consider shelving, pot racks and magnetic knife or spice holders instead. Your kitchen will look more spacious and serve up display space for your favorite dishes, shiny pots and pans, or artwork.
As seen on Home Town, the Rowell residence has been fully renovated by Ben and Erin Napier. The existing kitchen was closed off and dark. By removing the wall between the kitchen and dining and exposing the brick chimney, this room flows better with the rest of the house and adds character to the overall space. The improved cabinet layout also provides ample storage space to the kitchen.
The main part of this modern kitchen is elegant and functional.

State of the art, stainless steel appliances, pendant lighting and clear barstools give the space a modern flair.
Wood details throughout this dining room enhance the country look and feel of the design. A set of white chairs alternates with a set of brown chairs around the long dining table. Detailed trim framing the doorway and windows echoes the detailing on the large wood china cabinet. A neutral rug complements the creamy walls and continues the theme of mixing dark and light.
In this contemporary kitchen, two chandeliers balance the length of the large island and raise the eye upward. The marbled backsplash complements the tan wall and brown island cabinets.
