Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Interesting use of dead space -- after regular pull outs, there are lateral slides that bring the stuff stored in the dead space to within reach (sort of!)
I like the half-length pull out pantry.
I've never seen a pull-out space for cutting boards/ cookie trays, but this would work much better for us than having just vertical slots for these items. I would want the bottom of the bin mesh or grid, so that crumbs or dust wouldn't get caught in the narrow spaces.
Love this sink. Do copper sinks turn green?
I like the airy feel of this -- all the window space, the simple window seat, the white wainscotting and the simple lamp over the table. I'm thinking that in the solarium, we should have a clean-lines light over the table itself, and a floor lamp next to the chair in the corner...
How strange would it be to have two-tone cabinets? Currently we have white interiors and frames and wood doors for the upper cabinets, and all-wood below. Islands are often made of different wood and in different styles. Would it look too bizarre to mix white and wood cabinets?
I love the spaciousness of this design -- even display niches in the island! But really, who would actually cook in this kitchen?
I like the cross-beaming in the ceiling.
I like these pull-out racks for just about anything, I think. It's so much easier than having to rummage in the back of a cabinet for things.
This is one of those pot racks with lights built in. Strange to use it as a chandelier over an eating area.
Interesting use of granite countertop as part of the backsplash behind the sink and stove.
Hmmm... I like the white with wood. Right now, we have white boxes & shelves, with wood doors and drawer fronts. That does lend a certain brightness to the kitchen.
Nice use of shallow shelf, with half the contents on the door.
I like these slide-out trays, which make it much easier to get into the back of deep cabinets.

The integrated cutting board is appealing, as is the attached wire thing....
The subtle iridescence of the tile is nice. Also, I like the way those crook-neck sprayer/faucets look, but the only one I've actually used was harder to pull out and put back in than a simple, separate sprayer.
Nice cabinets & drawers, though aren't those drawer enormous? But I like the frames on the door panels, and the simple hardware.
What are these things that look like faucets behind the cooktops?
I want both recessed spotlights and pendants (as well as under-counter lighting).
I like all the tools within easy reach. I have two large and two small magnetic knife holders currently, and a marble lazy susan next to the stove to hold my cooking oils. I have my cooking utensils in three canisters that also take up TOO MUCH counter space. But I find canisters work better than drawers, for the things I use at least a couple of times a week.
I like that backsplash (though I don't like the way it goes with the countertop). I also think I'd like it better if there were maybe three larger tiles to punctuate the uniformity of size.
These structural display spaces at the top of the cabinets are rather nice, and give more definition to the upper display space than does simply an irregular line of cabinets.I don't like the big crown moldings, but I do kind of like the negative soffits.
Beautiful bench -- not cushions.
Nice cabinets, nice pendant lights. Good wood tones. I like the island, but something open like that won't work in our limited space.
That is one amazing backdrop. I like that they took a favorite piece of art, and reimagined it as a bcaksplash. Something to ponder...
Now that's good -- a utility drawer with hanging space in a niche by the stove! Currently I have potholders and splatter guards hanging from hooks on the refrigerator, and from hooks on some big steel shelves we have to supplement storage space.
I like the wood-grained cabinetry, the sink -- and the very spacious pot & utensil rack
stained glass panel
Nice ways of concealing microwave and some appliances.
I like these three little pendant lamps
I love the unexpected use of fieldstone here. And the crenelated line of cabinet tops.
Pretty wood, good sink.
