Houzz is the new way to design your home.
For Susie. Love the idea of a row of hydrangea.
Floor color; cabinets.
Storage; gray on the island.
Desk area for Kristen.
I like this entire concept. Also, Bria mentioned load-bearing issues, so perhaps this represents a work-around.
Cabinets, floor color.
Setting aside the step-down, I like the flow of this space. Looks like good storage, too.
Another work area for Kristen.
Countertop is great. Love the plank floor.
This has a lot of nice features.
Layout and everything else.
Apron sink with texture and dividers; also like the contrasting colors.
Consider this template -- door out of the kitchen on the north-facing wall.
Layout, sinks and backsplash.
Molding between rooms is curved and nice.
We need this feature!
