MAKE IT PER­SONAL.

Though it can be pricey, opt­ing for cus­tom-built cab­i­netry al­lows you to­tal con­trol over your kitchen’s look and func­tion. Here, the owner opted for cab­i­nets of vary­ing heights, fin­ishes and styles, in­clud­ing a hutch built to look like a sep­a­rate piece of fur­ni­ture for that “un­fit­ted” look. The kitchen is also com­pletely ADA com­pli­ant, so the own­ers have peace of mind that it will con­tinue to serve them well as they age.

SMALL BUT MIGHTY.

This mod­est cot­tage kitchen has all the es­sen­tials packed into a small space. Tucked be­neath a loft, the ef­fi­cient U-shaped de­sign is out­fit­ted with a glass-front hutch that boasts a built-in desk; the small is­land has seat­ing for two; the pantry fea­tures a pocket door that pre­vents lost us­able square footage due to door swing; and a plate rack, wine rack and bulk­head above the cab­i­nets gives the ex­tra stor­age a small space needs. Cream cab­i­nets help keep the com­pact room bright and open.

IT’S YES­TER­DAY ONCE MORE.

In­cor­po­rat­ing large win­dows, whether clear-paned case­ment win­dows or the di­vided-light va­ri­ety, above the sink will have ev­ery­one fight­ing over who gets to do the dishes so they can take in the lovely view. All sorts of spe­cialty stor­age, from wine bot­tles to spice jars, are tucked into the cen­tral is­land, which also has a durable butcher-block coun­ter­top and a veg­etable prep sink. Mis­sion-style pen­dants lend a time­less, his­tor­i­cal vibe to this brand-new kitchen.

WIDE OPEN SPA­CES.

Rus­tic el­e­gance abounds in this open-con­cept kitchen. A slab of black wal­nut, with a live-edge fin­ish­ing treat­ment, tops the an­gled is­land that can seat a crowd. Open shelv­ing for plates, seeded-glass pen­dant lights and chalk­board paint be­hind the range add of-the­mo­ment homestead style, while the brushed-nickel farm­house sink gives it a mod­ern twist.
