The two-tiered island features clean white countertops, which flow seamlessly with the farmhouse sink, and an upper wood countertop. Brown Mediterranean-inspired tile creates a small backsplash. The island overlooks the open dining room and living room, making this space the true heart of the home.
For this laundry room, Mark Warren of Warren Home Restorations Inc. wanted to combine efficient storage and ample light with pleasing design that would blend with the rest of the home. An apron-front sink makes a pretty stand-in for a utility sink. To the right, specially sized niches hold laundry baskets that make sorting and toting a snap.
An all-white color creates a timeless setting for the English cottage home. Long linear drawer pulls are added to the clean-front cabinets, which are clad in simple white countertops. Classic subway tile is used for the backsplash, and a brass light fixture adds a vintage note to the space.
