Cottage Kitchen with Window Nook
A small island with a butcher-block top grounds this cottage kitchen. The table under the window, surrounded by a built-in banquette, offers seating and more work area. Milk glass pendants, gold curtains and a brass colander add warmth to the design.
One end of this cottage kitchen becomes a charming breakfast nook with sunlight pouring in the large windows. The curvy cord of the pendant light over the table is a fun contrast to the room's simple straight lines.
The updated kitchen has new hardwood floors, granite countertops, a subway tile backsplash, two pendant lights, and new stainless fixtures and appliances. The original lower cabinets and island were painted bright white, with modern hardware added. New upper cabinets are taller and offer more storage, and are a more appropriate height for the room, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
A wall of arched windows produces a light-and-airy atmosphere in this kitchen on the picturesque island of St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. The exposed wood-beam ceiling, rustic hand-carved table and simple floral accents create the feeling of escaping to an exotic getaway.
To satisfy the homeowner's love of color, designer Kelly Mittleman introduced colorful fabrics, such as the cushions and pillows on this window seat in the kitchen. Varying pattern scales add visual interest.
Blue and White Cottage Kitchen with Arched Windows
This blue and white country cottage kitchen features white cabinets, white columns, and arched picture windows. A rustic farmhouse table with intricate wood carvings serves as the focal point of the room. A vaulted ceiling extends the space and gives this kitchen an open, airy feel.
Cottage Kitchen With Banquette Window Seating, Roman Shades
This custom banquette seating provides a wonderful place to enjoy breakfast or sit with the family. Natural light illuminates the worn wood of the table and chairs, while a vintage floral shade hangs overhead when privacy is preferred.
Windows and Open Walls Make Kitchen and Breakfast Nook Feel Open and Functional
Just off the kitchen, a breakfast nook beckons good food and great conversation. With no door between the two and a large window allowing the kitchen to view the breakfast nook and beyond, these two small spaces feel larger and more open, flowing together and improving the functionality and style of the first floor.
The breakfast nook to the side of the kitchen gives the homeowners an additional dining option. With benches on three sides and room for chairs on the other, this nook makes great use of its space, providing seating for at least six diners.
