A kitchen island provides a casual dine-in option in the HGTV Smart Home 2013. Wicker barstools add natural texture to the glossy white countertop, while playing into the coastal vibe of the home located in Jacksonville, Fla. The teal table setting coordinates with the formal dining room off to the side.
The vision for the space was to create a livable, functional area for the homeowners. By removing the one wall in the space that used to define the kitchen, the designers were able to open the floor plan up and maximize the square footage and natural lighting. The renovated kitchen now features custom white cabinetry, wood countertops, breakfast bar and teal barstools, staying true to the cottage feel.
