Thick, dark wood beams juxtapose the light neutral palette of this cottage kitchen where a large kitchen island offers extra countertop space and casual dining. Shutters bring in natural light and also provide privacy.
A hanging rack is a clever—and attractive—way to store pots and pans when you're short on cabinet space. This kitchen brings additional visual interest via its blue tile backsplash, a nice contrast with the all-white cabinets and countertops.
It's a little like a magic trick: When designers removed the wall between this kitchen and an adjacent dining room, they also raised the ceiling. And presto! A kitchen with a brighter, bigger feel, even though the actual square footage didn't change much.
A cottage kitchen features a white range hood that sits above a stone backsplash trimmed in mosaic tile. The white is continued in the cabinets and marble countertops, but wood shelf brackets, bowls of wood utensils and the soft yellow cabinet warm the room.
This charming kitchen offers plenty of style and practicality. The solid-surface countertops and butcher-block island offer ample prep space, while stainless-steel appliances make it efficient. The white recessed-panel cabinets provide lots of storage and style.
