Extra Large Kitchen Island and Banquette in Black and White Contemporary Chef's Kitchen
The family of five needed lots of seating and prep space in their kitchen, but they also wanted the space to remain stylish and functional, so they added an oversized island with a Viking prep sink and two Viking dishwashers to handle the abundance of dishes a large family is sure to create. The extra large area of the countertop gives the family plenty of space to prepare their meals, as well as lots of space underneath for storage. With its sleek, clean lines, the island not only added functionality to the space, but also gave the family the contemporary aspect they were looking for. The breakfast area just on the other side of the island meets the same requirements for the family. A dark stained dining table seats six, while the padded banquette adds to the contemporary feel to the space, with its metallic, tufted fabric and throw pillows, and also gives the space extra seating.
Bay Windows Brighten Newly Remodeled Open Plan Kitchen
To make this kitchen seem lighter and brighter, Chip and Joanna, of HGTV's Fixer Upper, made good use of the bay windows. By removing curtains and allowing plenty of natural light into the space, the neutral white color palette reflects the light, creating a bright, open, inviting kitchen with plenty of prep space and seating.
This family of five needed a kitchen that fit their active lifestyle. The main goal of the kitchen remodel was to create an open plan that flows into the dining room and home office. Slate tile flooring and shared cabinetry connects the kitchen and home office, which also functions as the kids' homework center.
