This family of five needed a kitchen that fit their active lifestyle. The main goal of the kitchen remodel was to create an open plan that flows into the dining room and home office. Slate tile flooring and shared cabinetry connects the kitchen and home office, which also functions as the kids' homework center.
Double islands in this transitional gourmet kitchen provide prep area and a welcoming dining space. Dark brown wood on the islands contrast against the white Shaker cabinets around the perimeter of the kitchen. Calacatta Vagli marble countertops bring sophistication to the room.
Espresso-stained oak floors and dark kitchen cabinets create a striking contrast against the soft white island. The hub of the kitchen, the island provides a casual dining spot, two separate ranges for cooking, tons of counter space for prep and even storage for the homeowners' large collection of cookbooks.
When Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri renovated this kitchen, they decided to remove a wall between the living room and dining room. Now that the space is opened up, the large wall graphic in the dining area adds a striking visual that extends throughout the space.
The open concept kitchen features a sleek, black island, which houses the kitchen sink and range. The island flows down to a dining table surrounded by contemporary chairs. Glass walls offer views of the interior gardens with elegant trees.
This transitional chef's kitchen is the heart of this sprawling estate and opens up to an oversized family with bi-folding doors that lead to expansive views of the resort-like backyard. Marble countertops top the soft brown islands and Shaker-style cabinets to create a cohesive design.
Despite the fact this it is open to the rest of the first floor, the HGTV Dream Home 2015 dining room table still feels comfortable and intimate with the use of upholstered chairs, attractive lighting and a calming color palette.
Exposed wood walls lend a rustic quality to this Colorado mountain retreat. A cozy seating area next to the kitchen is centered around an open fireplace. Wood cabinets have chalkboard doors for jotting down notes and fun messages, while the large island and lower cabinets are painted navy blue to add rich color to the space.
