A large island offers plenty of prep space, a spot for enjoying meals and storage space in this white transitional kitchen. Built-in bookshelves keep cookbooks within reach while making for a colorful display.
This modern kitchen is an elegant, functional space for this family. Storage and organization is the name of the game for this family, so designers created something that would help them with just that. Large cabinets cover both sides of the space, giving the family plenty of room to keep all of their things. With all the extra cabinet space, prep space became an issue, so designers added a few extra feet on either side of the stove and extended the countertop for the kitchen island to give this family an great place to work.
This custom-built island houses the microwave oven and kitchen sink while providing over 9 feet of prep space. A raised breakfast bar creates just enough space to hide electrical outlets needed for small appliances.
The prep space in this kitchen gives the homeowners easy access to everything they need right at their fingertips. With glass front upper cabinets, no dish or gadget is every too far out of reach, while lower cabinets provide discreet storage. A wine cooler in the corner and plenty of counter space help the homeowners get ready for entertaining and family meals.
In this corner of the kitchen space, designers have added a prep area to solve the homeowners' countertop woes. Modern, white cabinets keep the space bright and stylish, while dark, granite cabinets add warmth to the space. Textured wallpaper puts the finishing touch on this small space, giving it personality and dimension while creating an elegant, yet still functional space.
Even though the kitchen space is small, designers wanted to create an open feel without sacrificing functionality, so they added a slender kitchen island with intuitive cabinet design and a long countertop for plenty of storage and prep space.
As seen on Love It Or List It, Too, the kitchen and dining room have changed places. Now, the kitchen has plenty of space for storage and prep, while the dining table, which extends from the kitchen island in true Italian fashion, seats up to ten. The Caesar Stone countertops in the color Misty Carrera have been extended to the end of the dining area, and the cabinets are stained opaque, both grey and white, with Benjamin Moor Paint. The flooring throughout the kitchen and the first floor is stone brown red oak from Mercer, and the wall color is Milk Paint from Behr.
Before the renovation, this kitchen didn't even have an oven or stove, and as a professional chef, her tiny kitchen wasn't cutting it, so designers added a large kitchen island that would provide the homeowner with the counter space she needs for preparation, while also providing seating for four people.
This modern kitchen provides plenty of space for food prep as well as food consumption. Countertops line two sides of the kitchen, and a large kitchen island provides even more space for preparation. Once preparation is finished and the meal has been prepared, the large kitchen island seats seven-perfect for a night of casual dining.
