Dynamic Townhouse Kitchen Is Fabulously Functional
Form and function expertly combine in this stunning townhouse kitchen. A wall of steel-framed interior windows provides practical division between the kitchen and dining room while adding an architectural focal point to the home. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets maximize the kitchen's limited square footage, and a track ladder provides easy accessibility while adding another point of interest to the dynamic space.
A long island doubles as an eating bar and ups the practical efficiency of the home's galley kitchen. In the main space, a gently curved ceiling draws the eye up and softens the precise angles of the cabinets and counters.
The neutral color palette needed a bit of personality, so designers peppered the space with blue details such as the barstools and double ovens. For a little more fun, a blue, retro refrigerator was added, bringing out the blue hues in the neutral granite countertop.
This galley kitchen in Decatur, Ga., was designed to be a functional yet stylish space that allows for effortless cooking and entertaining. Thus, the room features a deep sink and stainless appliances, gorgeous green cabinets and a wood dining table that seats six.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, the new kitchen is located where the old, small living room previously was. The walls on the first floor have been removed, creating an open modern floor plan with views to both the living room and dining area. Updated kitchen cabinetry, new appliances, a decorative tile backsplash and the elongated central island make the new kitchen the center of life on the first floor. Finally, new window treatments, colorful pillows and updated recessed and pendant lighting give a modern and fun vibe throughout.
Designers wanted to create a bright, open space for the homeowners, but the second wall in the kitchen was load bearing, so instead of taking it out, they maximized the kitchen's functional space by adding shelves for storage and display space and lower cabinets for counter space. To keep the space bright, under cabinet lighting was added, as well as a row of pendant lights running down the middle of the space.
This spacious galley-style kitchen features stained wood upper cabinets and painted lower cabinets. Polished black granite countertops, a pro-grade stove and mosaic backsplash complete the look. An adjacent dining room offers entertaining space near a modern suspended staircase.
