Removing a wall between the dining room and living room not only gave new life to the space, it facilitated a structural reconfiguration that functionally and visually redefined spaces. Dark hardwood floor blends seamlessly throughout all three rooms, while the open floor plan now creates a space that ideal for family to gather as well as for entertaining.
In this lovely transitional kitchen, style works hand in hand with functionality. Transom cabinets provide extra storage and visual interest, with their interior lighting and frosted glass doors. A slate blue island adds a hit of color as well as a much-needed work space.
Blue and White Transitional Kitchen With Gold Pendants
This charming kitchen sparkles with pretty color pairings (love the pinks and reds of the rug and the blue-gray cabinets) pulled together by a trio of gold pendants above the island. Clean-lined barstools are the perfect friendly and so-stylish finishing touch.
Blue and White Transitional Kitchen With Bookshelf
This clean-lined kitchen features polished Carrara marble countertops, blue and white laser-cut marble backsplash tiles, cabinetry with brushed white bronze hardware and beautiful glass pendants. At the end of the island, surprise! Hidden shelving for cookbooks and extra storage.
This lovely kitchen keeps its look from being too monotone by giving the island a blue base and barstools with blue cushions. The color is continued in the adjacent breakfast nook with a friendly blue banquette.
Traditional Kitchen With Pearl-Finish Backsplash and Contemporary Barstools
A dramatic, pearl-finish backsplash and contemporary stools modernize this renovated traditional kitchen for fashion-forward homeowners, packing it with charm and interest. Designer Marci Barnes expanded the original kitchen footprint and opened up the room to the dining area and attached sunroom to further update the space.
Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri transformed a dated and dysfunctional kitchen into this modern rustic space that's specially conceived to be the ideal baker's kitchen. A custom baking station is a keynote feature that incorporates a generous amount of open shelving and a dedicated prep area with butcher block countertop.
