Updated Cottage Kitchen With Open Feel
The updated layout of this kitchen includes a desk area and a concealed laundry space with front-loading washer and dryer, on the right. The countertop above the units can serve as folding space or as a buffet table during parties.
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.
Influenced by English cottage design, this galley kitchen emphasizes the quaint and soft details of the style. Powder blue cabinetry, bronzed drawer pulls and crisp white countertops are charming details in the small space.
To give this kitchen the farmhouse look its owners wanted, designers paneled the dishwasher and refrigerator to blend them in with the cabinetry. The sink got a concrete apron front and the cooktop a plaster hood. The island's "X" completes the mood.
A wood paneled ceiling, white farmhouse sink and an island with traditional table legs give this kitchen a casual, cottage vibe. Leather barstools and iron pendants are more rough around the edges, but coordinate effortlessly with the dark hardwood floors.
This cottage kitchen features checked swag curtains that call attention to a beautiful bay window. A soffit offers perfect placement for task lighting above the apron sink, while blue and white dishes are a homey accent on the stone countertops.
Wood support beam and a classic chandelier paired with a mix of black and white cabinets make this a warm, classic space. The white cabinets provide a highlight feature, while the upper and lower cabinetry lights create the perfect ambiance. The large island with marble countertop provides plenty of space to work and eat.
