Before, a partial wall isolated the island from the rest of the kitchen. Now, the homeowners can easily interact while they enjoy a bowl of cereal or the morning news at the updated breakfast bar, as seen on HGTV's Brother Vs. Brother.
Removing a wall and storage closet opened up the space providing a clear view to the dining room and leaving space for the addition of a large kitchen peninsula and plenty of lower-cabinet storage. A small pass-through window opens onto a newly updated breakfast nook.
The combination of exposed wooden beams and sleek open shelving gives this kitchen a unique style. A wine fridge in the peninsula was a bonus feature in the stunning space, which features state-of-the-art appliances.
To bring color into this contemporary white kitchen, an orange pendant light was installed over the custom peninsula. The vibrant color pairs well with the black quartz countertops and neutral glass backsplash. Below, a vertical pullout storage cabinet keeps spices and other ingredients organized near the top-notch stainless steel stove.
A portion of the dining room wall was removed, opening the space up to the kitchen and making room for a new kitchen peninsula. The framed items in the corner gallery were found in the house and are from the former owner.
The curved peninsula in this transitional kitchen creates the perfect eat-in bar. The white and black cabinets and gray backsplash create an elegant feel in the space. The rich wood floors also allow this kitchen to feel warm and inviting.
Vibrant orange accents stand out in this contemporary eat-in kitchen. The island with black quartz countertops and a beautiful outdoor view provides extra seating to make entertaining easy and stylish. A limestone backsplash runs behind the sink while a built-in bookcase and set of display cabinets help keep things tidy.
Illuminate key sections of a peninsula or island by using stylish lamps normally reserved for other parts of the home. Atlanta designer Jo Torrijos selected white table lamps from a national home goods retail chain for the renovated kitchen in her modernized Craftsman bungalow.
Recessed lighting and a vaulted ceiling keep this open concept kitchen looking light and bright. Neutral tiles cover the walls, while two glass pendant lights hang from the ceiling. White leather stools are positioned at the kitchen counter peninsula, creating the perfect spot for casual dining.
Crisp, white cabinetry paired with black soapstone and Calcutta marble sets the tone for this elegant, multi-functional kitchen and living area. The space is equipped with a baking center, banquette seating and glass cabinets wrapping around a corner to further defining the space. The style and millwork of the home were continued in the columns flanking the apron sink and featured detailing on the built-in snack bar.
Symmetry and storage were important ideas for this kitchen. The client wanted to have both her grandkids in the kitchen or serve appetizers to adult guests while she was preparing foods. A peninsula was added to provide seating and to allow for a functional cooking area.
