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.
