This renovated kitchen is now located where the old dining room once was. A window was closed up to make room for the new stove and countertop area. A large kitchen island with double sink basins now separates the dining area from the kitchen, and provides a casual eating spot. Modern pendant lighting add a rich golden color to the dramatic black walls and red bar stools.
In the sleek kitchen, matte wall tile contrasts with eco-friendly shiny white cabinetry and high efficiency stainless steel appliances. Energy Star lighting fixtures brighten the space with LED bulbs when darkness falls.
Brown floating shelves on either side of the range let the homeowners bring a little personality into this sleek white kitchen, giving them a place to showcase artwork or favorite collections. The simple, clean structure of the vent hood ties in well with the room's economic design.
The beach-blue 6-foot island, capped in white quartz countertops, serves as both workspace and casual-chic dining area in the kitchen of HGTV Smart Home 2013. Pendant lights hang above the island to provide functional statement pieces.
A row of simple pendant lights gracefully illuminates the long island in this traditional kitchen. A reddish-orange was chosen for the walls, which brings warmth and a pop of color to an otherwise neutral space.
