This traditional neutral kitchen proves you don't need a ton of space to entertain in style. A compact kitchen island with fold-down flaps offers expandable prep room and a built-in wine rack neatly stores bottles.
Vertical lighting in the Mission style cabinets make it easy for homeowners to see what they need. The corner space location creates more storage for larger dishes while varying the heights of the cabinets keeps the eye moving for maximum visual impact.
The metal and glass hood and the expanded lower cabinets below the Thermador cooktop make it the focal point of this transitional kitchen. The tile backsplash repeats the neutral, granite counter-top color scheme and gives the space a contemporary feel.
Designer Meg Caswell adds a home bar at the opposite end of the kitchen. Patterns don't have to be bright to make an impact. The subtle, muted motifs in the tiles and wallpaper create low-volume texture.
A beautiful stone alcove housing the cooking range is the focal point for this open kitchen layout. Lots of honey-colored wood cabinetry fills the remainder of the space, and dark gray and black countertops complement the dark tile floor.
Skylights bring in natural light overhead in this rustic meets contemporary kitchen. Exposed wood beams pop off the crisp white ceiling, and the sleek yet warm color palette continues below in warm cabinets and clean countertops.
