Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Note the use of the ceiling drop for the lighting over the island.
Cabinet finish is the only take-away here..
great use of color and texture... note the color of the wood floors.. skylights are good too.
Interesting use of the counter.. and the skylight.
Look at that neat butcherblock counter top
look at the use of the two island top materails...
Note the light fixture over the island.
Look at the manner in which the cabinet faces are working.
note the toe lighting on the small island.
Note dropped lighting over island.
Note the two islands, the different countertops on each and the ceiling heights.
Note the seating
The idea of drop-ins in the island for coolers/ice - even flowers - is a good idea
Checkerboard end caps are interesting feature
Interesting kitchen sink
The shelving idea is good - it could wrap around a corner as well.
Note the lighting over the island.. It's from restoration hardware
Note the butcherblock counter top and trim over the side.
while no one thing sticks out here, the mix of stone, floor tile and cabinet colors is ineresting.
take a look at that flooring.
Nice use of tray ceiling in this shot.
I like the way the countertop tile over-turns are finished.. they are deeper than normal
this is a good example of what I DON'T want a kitchen to look like.
Interesting drop over the kitchen for lighting.. and the tongue/groove lumber used to finish it out.
Nice way to add modest bottle storage on the right...
I hadn't thought about the idea that the small windows we'll use around our great room area could actually be opened...
This "blackboard" is actually a paint... the lettering at the top is a vinyl lettering that they cut.
Very nice color on the dark plank on the floor here.
Good use of th butcherblock counter.. note the end-cap of the island (happens to be for dog stuff) and the under-counter cabinet lighting..
Not my taste in color, but interesting use of color. Note the cabinet treatment under the island countertop
Nice center island.. note the large lip on the counter top
Nice use of ceiling drops to move lighting down.. and the different finishes on the cabinets..also good.
