Geometric Backsplash Surrounds Kitchen Sink
Instead of traditional subway tile, TerraCotta Design Build chose an unexpected, slightly geometric backsplash for the kitchen. With its hexagonal shape, this tile adds serious visual interest to the sink.
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.
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.
Transitional Galley Kitchen With Rich Brown Accents
A custom steel “I” beam was fabricated and installed to allow for an open concept in the century old home. Interior walls within the original space were eliminated, allowing for greater traffic flow, natural light and efficiency.
Contemporary Kitchen Opens to Dining Room With Lighted Ceiling
Walls between the kitchen and hallway and the kitchen and dining room were removed, the range was moved and an island was added for family meals. “This family of four was thrilled to have their kitchen open out to the dining area with a large peninsula,” designer Anjie Cho reports.
An industrial steel and glass wall separates the kitchen from the living and dining space in this transitional townhouse. A row of windows above the kitchen bar opens, so guests can sit and grab a bite to eat or converse with the chef.
This elongated galley kitchen with a wood-crowned island relies on natural lighting to illuminate the workspace. Parallel to the dining and living areas, it's ideal for hosting a party or having a family dinner.
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.
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.
Designer Jennifer Allison shortened the height of the upper cabinets to improve sight lines, extended the peninsula and infused the kitchen with much lighter colors. Thermador appliances, Silestone counters, Houzer sink and Delta Touch-free faucet added to the modern flair.
This townhouse features high ceilings and a lengthy galley-style living space. Divided by a custom aquarium, the living area features neutral, comfortable furniture and the dining area features modern seating with street views. The two spaces share the contemporary stairs leading to the upper level.
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.
Designer Anjie Cho removed the wall between kitchen and living room and added a peninsula with overhang for seating. The move gave more space to the galley, allowing the kitchen to be wrapped around the seating area for added room next to the table.
