Classic inset-panel cabinetry goes country with toile cafe curtains over the large window and a well-worn dining table and chairs right in the middle of the room.
Tucked into the back corner of the house, this kitchen uses ever inch of space. By building the creamy-color cabinets around the appliances, the space feels finished and elegant.
The large island and attached dining room make this kitchen the perfect spot to gather. Varying the countertops on the island and perimeter cabinets creates a more casual air.
The ornate columns, cabinetry, and island take this white kitchen from good to great. Behind the range, beautiful mosaic tiles add an organic pattern and a pop of color.
Warm brown hues create a cozy mood in this modern California kitchen. Suede upholstery and beadboard walls soften the surrounding kitchen’s sleeker lines while tall windows offer a clear morning view.
It’s fairly easy to turn a few forgotten feet of space into your kitchen’s go-to gathering spot. Lately, we’ve been inspired by all the gorgeous ways designers and architects are turning the standard breakfast nook into a kitchen’s stand-out feature. From plush cushions to custom table designs, here are great breakfast nook designs we’re loving.
First up: Graphic blue cushions and throw pillows enliven this kitchen’s all-white eating space. A simple marble table keeps it classy and matches the nearby countertop.
Although this kitchen’s floor plan is on the small side, it appears spacious and inviting thanks to a few design tricks. Blocks of darker colors (on the floor and island) ground the area, while crisp white and creamy bisque on the appliances, trims, ceiling, and walls keep the room light. Small pockets of color, in the form of vintage accessories, give rhythm to the space and keep your eye dancing around the room.
This tiny kitchen was carved out of a single large room in a converted carriage house. Careful arrangement of appliances makes working in small kitchens easy. This space doesn’t feel crowded, because everything is within one or two steps of the sink and range. To add some class to galley kitchens, use beautiful dark finishes and hardware for the kitchen cabinets and double-curve edges for the stone countertops, like this homeowner did.
The peninsula that replaced the wall has a deep single-bowl sink and is the home for the kitchen?s dishwasher. The sink?s deep basin and gooseneck faucet not only look contemporary but can also handle large pots and pans with ease. Open shelving in the corner of the kitchen provides storage for the microwave and keeps it off the counter.
