Houzz is the new way to design your home.
colors - both island paint and wall cabinets. Also like the pendents.
island color and table leg embellishment. Rounded countertop to provide more of a table feel. Also like the shelves on the end.
island color, granite and faucet - like the use of color in the backsplash but not the shape of the tiles. Like the lighting fixtures too.
island color, table leg embellishment
lighting fixtures over island - overall "clean" look but too white. I want at least a pop of color.
Extend the island and use table legs for support - makes it a table with chairs on three sides instead of everyone sitting in a row. Also note that the cabinets underneath are extended out for additional storage and support of the countertop. May be able to change the "rounded look" to something like this and accommodate for more seats.
Great idea for all of our cutting boards - need to be sure this is accessible near the island as most prep work will be done on the island. We also need to think about having utensils and knives easily accessible on the island.
This shows how we could keep the rounded end but still offer seating on three sides with the use of table legs... I'm not set on having a rounded table - whatever is most structurally sound. Just wanted to include this since I also like this look.
I'm concerned about under-sink storage and access to dish-washing items since the apron sink will take up a lot of room and there isn't space for a drawer on either side due to the dishwasher and trashcans (which are in the perfect locations!) so I want to get creative with what we can do under the sink.
like this for cutting boards and/or baking sheets. Will the drawer beneath the ovens be deep enough for this?
like the section on the side for trashbags - wondering if we could even make that multi-level shelves to store bags and dish washing tools or other cleaning products
just want to be sure Lady's bowls are at an elevated height (her current bowls are at 8" but she would be comfy with 9") and there is a drawer above for storing her little stuff. Also, may want to measure lady's plastic food container for the pull out in the island as it could be smaller and shorter than the design indicates... may have room for a drawer above it for utensils and prep tools.
Something like this could fit under the range depending on how much room the range's electronic elements take up underneath.
so necessary for our kitchen!
Modern Kitchen Cabinets
we need to think about where we want to keep the plates - I've always kept them in cabinets but this seems like a brilliant idea!
more ideas for under-sink cleaning products
would this method hold more dishes and take up less space than the rack? Could also be less expensive.
Rev-a-Shelf Door Storage Trays, Set of 2 - $25.99
this could be a very easy and cheap solution to my concerns about under-sink access!!
like the overall colors in this kitchen - little more color in the backsplash but this is a good overall look.
colors - white cabinets, dark wood island, light granite and blue subway tile backsplash - overall, this my be TOO white/light but like the backsplash and island cabinet color
I think I've tagged this one from another angle - but I love the thick table leg, the color of the island and the granite. Also, like the use of the shelves for glasses.
like the island color, the handle pulls and the pendent lights.
