Eat-In Kitchen With Green Stone Island Countertop and Open Floor Plan
The traditional layout of this open kitchen offers the perfect setup for dining and entertaining friends and family. At the centerpiece is a stunning, green stone countertop on the oversized kitchen island that ties in with the dark wood cabinetry and green-and-brown mosaic tile backsplash.
This kitchen was redesigned to have an open plan layout to make it brighter, friendlier and easier to get around in. Soapstone and Aurea stone (a marble lookalike) have a classic feel that's in keeping with the home's original architecture.
Traditional meets contemporary style in this blue and white dining room. The wainscoting and ceiling is painted a light blue hue and is broken up by white floral wallpaper. The contemporary chandelier blends in with the room, which also being a statement piece.
A closer look at the back wall reveals crisp white cabinets with matching subway tile. While the cabinets provide storage for glasses and plates, the backsplash makes the kitchen feel clean, bright and modern.
Designer Jeff Troyer moved the front door from the living room to this central area, allowing the space to function as a sitting room, music room and foyer for the family. A brown L-shaped sofa is tucked into one corner of the room, while a set of three nesting tables is positioned on top of a gray area rug.
Imagine yourself sitting back in this white-leather tufted armchair. Take your feet off the soft shag rug and put them up on the cushy ottoman. Now enjoy the tree-lined view out of the expansive wall of windows. When the sun sets, switch on the gold-gilded floor lamp and relax some more.
Custom millwork let designers work all kinds of handy storage into this kitchen's design without detracting from its clean, open look. Here, a large pantry with pull-out shelves is located at the kitchen's entrance.
Two separate vanities feature beautiful white cabinetry with mirrored doors. The larger vanity also features linen cabinets installed on top of the countertop. White marble flooring completes the design.
This old colonial home had many smaller rooms that needed to be opened up and integrated to make the space more usable for a modern day family. Floating glass shelves add a contemporary touch to the white brick backsplash of this transitional kitchen. Dark brown countertops are paired with white cabinets for a striking contrast.
