During this 1920s home's renovation, the kitchen was opened up to the family room via this graceful arched doorway. The detail echoes the unique curved cabinets of the home's original architecture seen here in the kitchen and elsewhere throughout the house.
White Shaker cabinets pair with gray countertops and subway tile backsplash for a soft, welcoming color palette. Pantries with open shelves and pull-out drawers provide much-needed storage in the kitchen.
White, Coastal Cottage Kitchen is Family, Friendly, Welcoming
To create a coastal cottage kitchen, exposed beams are painted white. The cabinets feature a distressed finish and are paired with speckled cream and brown countertops. The backsplash adds a subtle hint of sea-green color, while the dark wood island brings warmth to the space. A New England-inspired lantern hangs above the island.

This neutral cottage kitchen features shiplap walls, Shaker-style white cabinets, a white beadboard island with wood countertop, a seashell chandelier, and a breakfast area with banquette and black table.
Gray and White Open Plan Cottage Kitchen With Banquette
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, creative layout and design helped create a floor plan for this 1950s ranch home that is functionally unified but with visually delineated areas. Integrating the bench seat with the kitchen island helped define the new dining space.
Bright white cabinets create a light and airy atmosphere for this classic coastal kitchen, while black countertops make a striking contrast. A large island doubles as prep space and casual dining, and hardwood floors ground the space.
Turn a sunny window into a spot for displaying a collection of your favorite kitchen items. Vintage pieces in a similar color palette, like the blue and white items in this window, are especially lovely when grouped together. Kitchen window shelves are also the perfect location for growing light-loving herbs and flowering plants.
