An extensive California outdoor kitchen, created underneath a vaulted ceiling, features a bar with granite countertops and iron stools. The outdoor kitchen was created by Gayler Construction/Design Build, based outside of San Francisco.
The three points of the frequently mentioned work triangle are the range, sink and refrigerator. Appliances can be broken up with the classic shapes; for example, the cooktop and wall ovens might be in different areas. Two sinks are important for a two-cook kitchen. This white kitchen is accented with a marble backsplash and a wooden countertop on the island highlighting the bar stools and exposed ceiling beams.
This transitional kitchen remodel pairs together oak and painted blue cabinets with a white subway tile backsplash and wide plank hardwood floors. Recessed lighting illuminates the space, while kitchen island stools with wrought iron legs provide a spot for casual countertop dining.
An iron light fixture hangs from the high ceiling in this contemporary kitchen. The brown island with light countertop has two metallic bar stools matching the stainless steel refrigerator, sink and range hood. A tile wall design matches the varying shades of the wood.
Perfect for family dining or group entertainment, this opulent outdoor space is surrounded by stone hardscaping and lush green ivy landscaping. The elegant wrought iron outdoor dining table has a matching bar stool set for the side stone bar and is complemented by a metal chandelier.
This fully-stocked bar is tucked away underneath a curved staircase with a traditional wrought iron railing. Dark brown wood accents are used throughout the space, including the shelving and hand-crafted bar area. Four blue upholstered stools line the bar, providing a comfortable spot for kicking back with a drink.
A traditional neutral sofa, midcentury modern brown leather chairs and upholstered contemporary stools make up the seating in this bright and breezy living room. A natural wood coffee table with decorative iron legs is centered in the seating. A black and white wave painting tops the white mantel over a red brick fireplace.
Asked to make this once bland and boring pool area into a relaxing, inviting destination to entertain friends and family, designer Debbie Perez transformed it into a tropical paradise. She kept the homeowners vintage iron chairs and table and we added a new wicker coffee table, sofa, bar top table and stools, along with decorative spiral topiary wall art and mirror.
You don’t have to wait for a custom-made island to enjoy the style and functionality of a stone countertop. The Bluestone Kitchen Island, $1,999, from Crate & Barrel is crafted with reclaimed pine from old buildings and doors and topped with a lustrous slab of bluestone for a high-end look. Inside, two roomy drawers open with antiqued iron pulls, while spacious open shelves and two iron towel bars provide additional storage. The top slab of bluestone is wet sanded and waxed to a smooth finish that reveals its organic character. Two counter-height stools can be tucked inside for casual, in-kitchen dining.
This kitchen was transformed from a dark space with a tiny island to an open, airy concept with a nine foot island and open shelving for a casual, modern restaurant feel.
In order to compensate for removing the original upper cabinets, custom-made stainless steel shelves and a full wall of storage were added. The storage wall contains extra-deep cabinets throughout and a cubby area for small appliances like the toaster. The cabinets next to the double wide commercial refrigerator are actually tall pull-outs for added storage. Family durable materials such as wrought iron and wood stools were used so nothing is too precious to enjoy.
