Expansive Baker's Kitchen is Functional Heart of Home
Rustic wood and metal barstools pull up underneath the kitchen island's butcher-block countertops, creating a casual dining spot and perfect place to gather while this avid baker is prepping her next creation. Open pantry shelving keeps all ingredients in view and easy to reach.
This warm coastal kitchen mixes hardwood ceiling beams with crisp white walls and cabinets in this transitional space. Two wicker pendant lights hang above the kitchen island with seating for guests beside a faded navy hutch.
Most of this kitchen is gleaming white with gold accents, but in the center of the room, a blue banquette tucks into the island. The color contrast is a place for the eye to rest and an imaginative way to make the room even more inviting and functional.
Light and Bright Kitchen With Exposed Beam Vaulted Ceilings
This renovated kitchen features exposed beam vaulted ceilings paired with white cabinets and blue details, like the kitchen island. Two wood stools are positioned next to the island for casual dining, while a metallic pendant light and hardwood floors add finishing touches.
On the wall in between the kitchen and dining room, midnight blue cabinetry leaps out at the eye. The cabinets provide welcome extra storage and, for entertaining, there's also a wet bar. Oven and range: Thermador
A custom-built rolling butcher block gives this transitional, bold kitchen a functional conversation piece. Providing contrast between the wood and stone design, the butcher block can also be rolled away completely to create an additional sidebar.
The main countertops are honed Carrara marble for a classic look that's ideally suited to a baker's kitchen. In addition to its elegant appearance, the smooth marble offers a perfect surface for rolling out dough. Bright teal cabinets create a striking contrast and add bold color to the space.
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 and Dining Combo
This blue and white kitchen and dining combo features white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a large crystal chandelier over the dining table. Light blue walls add a distressed buffet table add a colorful cottage feel to the space. While blue, white, yellow, and pink accessories and floral elements give the room a spring-like feel.
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.
