Licensed contractor Josh Temple and his team transformed the kitchen in this 1905 home, adding a new stove with hood, dishwasher, custom cabinets and a tin tile ceiling. Bright yellow and white stripes, plus a Carrara marble countertop, added to the soda fountain vibe of the space, and meshed well with the couples' love of all things candy-related.
Because this galley kitchen is smaller in scale, it was important to utilize every square inch. Thus, designer Lucie Ayres tucked her clients' washer and dryer behind some custom cabinets and gave them drawers for a little pantry area as well.
Lucie Ayres' client asked to have a pantry, laundry room AND a desk in a small nook of the kitchen. She made it happen mainly by opening the walls between the former laundry room and kitchen and by installing space-saving retractable doors.
Beadboard walls and ceilings, an antique white stove and butcher block countertops all add country charm and character to this galley kitchen. Open shelving encourages minimalism in the kitchen since too many items on display can looked cluttered. Here, pretty glass jars filled with grains and a framed black-and-white photo look perfectly styled and organized.
Shades of gray and white are used throughout the Brother Vs. Brother kitchen in the cabinets, countertops, backsplash and checkered flooring. A accent wall of navy blue brings a burst of color to the space.
Butcher block counters are both stylish and functional, adding warmth and a cozy cottage look. A bohemian runner brings in muted color to the kitchen and also grounds the space. Rustic wood planks serve as sturdy open shelves for a trendy yet casual look.
Despite its size, this small apartment boasts a sophisticated galley kitchen packed with top-of-the-line amenities. Glass-front doors keep the cabinetry from weighing down the space, while a teal runner points to the eclectic living room just beyond the fridge.
