Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Like bay with herb garden - not this style. . Would our northern exposure have enough light?
Cabinet style and color
Like countertop color (more uniform than granite). I like the weight of these, although Heather doesn't.
Cabinetry, contrasting island color adds visual interest.
6 burner cook top with integrated grill.
Fun idea: window over cook top. Grease magnet?
Small island with butcher block. Heather and I realize that we do almost all of our prep on the peninsula ( headroom).
Contrasting surfaces (countertop and peninsula ) is visually interesting.
I really like the visual drama of his wall: lighting, tiling (not separate tiling over cooktop).
Like tile work. Contrast color near range.
Stainless over cooktop. Would need complimentary colored tile backsplash, I think.
I like stainless farm house sink. Not as heavy as porcelain.
Abbott Zinc-Top Island - $999
Un- island with some character. Zinc or other surface could provide contrasting color. I think I'd prefer a shaker or arts/crafts style
Cliff Young, Ltd Classic Collection Barstool
Simple styling for a full-sized barstool, but looks comfortable. Not my first choice of color.
Knicker Barstool | Lumens - $299
Maybe an interesting modern accent in a more traditional kitchen.
I like its organic look/feel, but might be tough in our house (without hunting trophies).
