What would your ideal kitchen look like?

Ancient SurfacesJune 28, 2013
1- An open space kitchen connected with the dining room and at the heart of the house, counters are out of 2.5" thick solid antique limestone and the kitchen hood is a converted antique fireplace that was retrofitted for the job.

2- A stark clean modern carrara marble tops meets sophisticated antique Kronos limestone stone pavers separated by black stained walnut cabinetry.

3-Rustic French Bastide style kitchen with hand painted decorative back splash tiles, antique terracotta squares and a kitchen hood carved out of old French limestone blocks.

4- An 20th century Italian revival style kitchen with a basket weaved and glazed Italian ceramic tiles and medallion, Millennium wide Olitic Limestone flooring planks some over 50" long and a centuries old beige colored antique limestone fireplace deep enough to be converted into a kitchen hood.

If I'm honest - none of the above :-(
My kitchen is cottage style, simple framed white cabinetry, warm and cosey travertine under heated flooring , with thick maple worktops and a maple grandfather clock ticking happily in the corner. A large country dining table with plenty of chairs and a big range with a furniture mantel over it and an island were most of the work gets prepped and a large farmhouse china sink, pantry and oversized fridge build into a T&G wall so it seems insignificant in the room rather than dominating it ! And to me ... It is just perfect !! I might just go and tidy it a bit and add some photographs if I can find the good camera ! Will add it to my profile page - as obviously I designed it !! Don't know why I didn't think of that before !!
