The kitchen’s center island includes a bar sink and saddle stools for casual seating, with a blue base that coordinates with the surrounding maple cabinetry with beadboard panel detail and some glass fronts.
Sleek saddle stools surround the dark-stained peninsula in this light and airy California kitchen. The peninsula ties in with dark, custom built-in shelves, while white cabinets, Calacatta marble countertops and a white subway tile backsplash give this room a bright, airy effect.
Ceilings and bar areas are great spots for a rustic, barn-style aesthetic, even in a new or renovated home. Look for backless bar seating and stools with saddle seat design, so that guests can casually sidle up to the island. And don’t forget to look up at the rustic beams on the ceiling.
