Another nice way to get some color with the island. Is there any reason to try to match colors on the inside with our new blue outside house color?
I noticed they gravitate towards the white cabinets because of the brightness and this one stuck out for me because of the way to add a little color in with the knobs of the stove and the light blue of the splash tile
I think we have more than 50 spices in our cabinet so would be nice to have a space like this but bigger for spices and oils.
Wondering if we should explore and off counter microwave?
Like color tones, tiles
curious -- what are the pros/cons of having microwave in island? Also, I like the towel rack on the cabinet that looks like the trash compartment -- I find when we put our towels on oven or dishwasher, towels hit the flower with opening those types of drawers.
Or maybe the Chinese red? For chairs.
I fancy the bright yellow chairs though I traditionally have had the practical side that always picks the brown or the black tones – just like in shoes.
Do we have a built in sling the dining room window that can be a serving station at formal events or allow chairs similar to dining table to be brought over for a hidden workstation? Or will no one use that space and instead continue to use the kitchen, dining table, LR?
Same with these chairs- narrow and easy to clean?
Are these chairs comfortable? What caught my eye us the feet which look like they would glide on carpetless wood without scratching, have no arms to allow closer seating, and are less heavy and bulky than our current chairs
Though I don't want a mirror per se how about something else with some reflection or portions of mirror that increase the sense of space and light, as our dining room is often too dark.
I find this attractive - nice tones. We wonder about trade offs with the lower counter/table adjoining
An open plan we had been discussing without the middle cabinets. We find it pleasing. Also the semicircular peninsula offers seating and counter space. Could the circle be extended and more elliptical to offer more face to face seating?
I like the side seating with storage. I also like the clear chair backs--see thru might give sense of more space? But are they comfortable?
I like the spice rack on the shelves on cabinet doors
This looks a nice integration of table and countertops
Notice microwave oven in wall. Is the stove also a countertop?
These chairs look a good height that have a substantial back, easy to clean, place to rest feet, and not too heavy/ bulky
If the sink were moved this might allow a counter with seating en face
I like the stone in this -- but I wonder if it's hard to clean?
if we have space, i'd love to have something like this. Though we do go through a lot of trash and a LOT of recycling....
Philippe says the other pics are too white, as he fears we would get everything dirty quickly, like our current splashguard. This is nice with modern lines, bright, not not everything, white, with an Asian feel (we have lots of japanese, chinese, indian art in our household).... Olivier notes he doesn't like this as we would not be facing each other as a family, and he wants a seat with back.
This two tier counter top idea I have seen often and wonder if it's for us. On the one hand, it would make the counter top space feel smaller I think, but perhaps this works well for a small kitchen of our size, especially as we do not have particularly high ceilings. I also would want chairs that are comfortable, wth a little back support.
also love the clean, bright, modern look, with the stone wall (though this may be too Jagged and rough) and a splash of yellow. lighting is nice but I'd be afraid we'd break them. and unlike other modern clean-cut designs, this feels like a home and not a rental unit.
I like this clean, modern, uncluttered look. Again I am wondering if the two tiered lower table imight serve our small space well and to allow more comfortable eat-in kitchen seating though I worry that perhaps it make the countertop workspace less efficient and less ergonomic for standing work
I've wondered whether built-in shelves (though taller/higher) with cushions for seating along the window wall would be an option for storage and maintaining some seating options in our kitchen...
Is this something that might work as a toaster oven, oven, microwave stacked into the wall on top of each other?
