Houzz is the new way to design your home.
if load bearing wall
example of island and dinning table combo
not bad idea but might take up too much room and not as formal if your bar/island is the only eating space
might be good idea if taking 2 bdrms amd making one yet with glass door, the second bdrm/converted to sitting rm and lg closet, is an easy conversion and no wall removals
island with no appl installs
another island that has dinning attached
the blank wall between kit and utility if the island is not the prime eating area
small compact island
The feet at the base of plain cabinets plus the dark hardware
detail between upper cabinets and countertop
load bearing wall divider idea, you can span 6 to 8 feet without a beam.
another island idea
same concept but raised eating area
I love the way the island/dinning table curves out and at an angle
good looking hardware on plain cabinets
has potential, large but good looking, note, all cabinets go to ceiling, then crown mouldings.
good corner idea
the nicer island/dinning table look
idea for existing laundry room, floor to ceiling shelves for extra storage plus that is the rear entrance, can be cute
open and angles are sometimes a good solution
stained glass window design for window that you want light, no curtain, privacy, easy to do withy stained glass kit.
Again if the load bearing is a problem, the classed cabinet is a good idea plus the cabinet and arrangement of eating area is good.
a reminder for serious lighting decisions
classy corner detail, counter, island, top is good looking too
door to outside
very much the dinning/island idea
another curve example
space over window or door with downlights under
lots to see, esp. table lok at end of island, bit of how the open feel is from another room
a drop down table height eating area attached to island
another good configuration that seats plenty
yes, seating at end of island
this can pull out, is on casters.
tiny but efficient
another tiny but efficient
beside the bed, left, wall hung shelf
neat utility room entry
your entry, wall treatment, hall to bedrooms and to the left is open to kit.
the other side, you are not open to rear but note to the right, open yet the 8 ft columns are in place to hold up the load bearing wall
book shlf arrangement
another interesting island design
again the day bed/guest bed and desk. you would only have room for one side probably but interesting concept and arrangement
tiny bathroom but the shadow box over the commode makes it goodlooking
the arrangement of living rm couch, then dinning table, then kit, open space put to good design
back of island begins the banquette eating area
If you had to hold up a load bearing wall, a graceful column and cover the beam with painted wood, good look
