This kitchen may not have a lot of square footage, but its open plan design maximizes its efficiency. A small kitchen island becomes both a working and eating space. And the bright pops of yellow in the pendant and floor lamps make the whole space feel sunny and bright.
The homeowners wanted to transform their once awkward and avoided kitchen into the heart of their home, so they tasked designers with opening up their space to connect it with the dining room and view beyond. In order to accomplish this, designers made structural changes to the home, allowing the kitchen more floor area while still maintaining the vintage charm of this classic Tudor home.
While the kitchen may not rival the home's sweeping vistas and luxurious outdoor rooms, it offers elegant functionality. Chef-grade appliances, glass-front cabinets and plenty of elbow room characterize the estate's open plan kitchen. Don't overlook the hand-carved details, which help create a sense of continuity throughout the home.
Broad windows, neutral finishes and stainless appliances make this contemporary kitchen feel open and inviting. Three metallic barstools wait at the island, where the owners can prep dinner or entertain friends at cocktail hour.
