Houzz is the new way to design your home.
like how the kitchen is framed (set apart from the family room, visually, but still a part of the flow of the rest of the house) -- PERFECT
nice mudroom off kitchen; nice placement of office? playroom?
nice architectural window (leaded glass)
PERFECT: arch or drop down of ceiling and bringing the wall in to frame the kitchen but keep it connected to the rest of the house
nice raised ceiling and skylight in the kitchen; nice windows in the breakfast nook (good height and placement -- higher up with more wall at the bottom)
tray ceiling in kitchen
three windows and tray ceiling in kitchen; workspace layout
nice keeping room/study/mudroom? off kitchen
good bumpout for breakfast nook
placement of breakfast noon; island is approx. 4 feet wide
dropped ceiling and crown at cabinet tops --- good for tall ceilings; crown on window casings
dropped ceiling and crown above upper cabinets (no crown ON cabinets); - backsplash up
no upper cabinets would have been better replaced by sconces and/or artwork
casement windows in kitchen
morning room placement without losing kitchen windows
WALL OF WINDOWS!
kitchen/morning room placement
even if the kitchen has one exposure, can bump it out and add another exposure just enough to get a window in the corner. see this as e.g.
this is it!
cabinets are recessed into the wall to make way for the upper windows! perfection!
under cabinet plugs
example of wall with no upper cabs (just windows) abutting wall with cabinets contiguous with range... similar to ours
side small cabinet
make the window sill deep and put the island or perimeter remnants on the sill
placement of morning room and kitchen and short hallway off kitchen
example of CEILING BEAMS RUNNING INTO CROWN MOLDING
