The L-shaped banquette in this bright kitchen with aqua cabinets creates a dining area with plenty of seating, perfect for entertaining even in a smaller home.

Designer Debbie Talianko chose subtle tones of soft blue and green to accompany this white transitional kitchen to give a nod to coastal-style design.

Sub-Zero, Bosch and Wolfe appliances and large pendant lighting from Restoration Hardware complete this stylish look.
As seen on Home Town, the Trest residence has been fully renovated by hosts Ben and Erin Napier. After renovations, the kitchen and dining area features new furniture, cabinetry, and window treatments. A large decorative range hood was added as a featured element in the kitchen as well.

The architect created a tall, grand space for the living and kitchen space. To make the tall space feel cozy, all ceiling planes were covered with barn board and reclaimed beams. Those materials are repeated again on the island, wrapping around the base. To anchor the kitchen, large lanterns were brought in as a way to define the kitchen area and fill the volume.
The Winter Park, Fla., home doesn't have a formal dining room, so a custom leather banquette acts as a cozy eating area off the kitchen. Above the kitchen island is a large, rectangular crystal chandelier. Each crystal was hand-tied around the fixture, and as one of the first elements to greet guest when they enter the home, the chandelier makes for a jaw-dropping design.
A large curved bar matches the ceiling shape creating a curved room edge in this spacious kitchen. The natural rock frame adds beautiful texture against the polished granite countertop.

This family needed plenty of space for food prep, food storage and organization, so designers created an open plan, eat-in kitchen that had all the features the homeowners needed to create a functional space. Cabinets and countertops span the back wall of the room, providing plenty of counter and cabinet space, while two commercial sized, French Door refrigerators add tons of room for food storage. The final touch in this lovely kitchen was the over sized kitchen island with lower cabinets on three sides and a large, marble countertop for additional storage and work space. The island is even wired with electricity to make the feature even more functional.
This large craftsman kitchen boasts, among other nice finishes, a beautiful hardwood floor that carries through to a sitting area opposite the kitchen island.

The center bar in a painted finish complements the dark natural finish on the wall cabinets.
This eclectic kitchen boasts cabinetry in pure white and black. A black kitchen island is paired with vivid orange chairs complemented by unusual, glossy orange pendant lights.

In a small outdoor space, an outdoor rug can play multiple roles, creating a seating “island” as it does here, adding color and style, and making the area appear larger thanks to the introduction of an overall pattern. Designer Annastasia Mitchell chose this rug carefully for its seafoam blue color, which repeats the apartment’s interior color palette, “providing a sense of visual flow,” she says, and to repeat the horizontal pattern of the louvered windows.
The tiny home's functional downstairs floor plan includes an open concept kitchen and living room. The kitchen, although small, makes the most of its space with large, lower cabinets, full sized appliances and a kitchen island with a breakfast bar that seats four. Adjacent to the kitchen is a living area with a stylish sofa and chairs. A rug adds definition to the design.
This kitchen channels both Spanish and Mexican styling with colorful walls, shelves and pottery. The large metallic mirror hanging over the range is a statement piece that brings more light and space to the room. Designer Emily Severinsen chose a deep orange wall color and carried it through to the pottery, which holds a variety of kitchen utensils. The green tea color on the range hood and cabinets is a refreshing contrast against the bold, rustic metal tile backsplash and cultural artwork. Natural elements like the sabino wood kitchen island and wooden ceiling beams add a country look, while the black modern stools rejuvenate the space. The oversized antique mirror makes the kitchen feel larger and more open.
This family of five needed a lot of counter space for preparing their feasts but wanted to keep it sleek, classic, and space to enjoy all the high-end amenities, so the family added Viking appliances to their space to handle the needs of the large brood.

As seen on HGTV's hit show Love It or List It, Hilary's design for this kitchen opens up the space and makes it feel larger than the original floor plan. She adds storage to this space by using a kitchen island in the middle of the room. The neutral colors on the cabinets and windows are accented by a pop of color on the far wall. That color also helps to separate the eat-in area from the main part of the kitchen.
